There's No Justice

Viva Laughlin just got cancelled.

Let me be perfectly clear on this -- even I found this show unwatchable.  I like Hugh Jackman, I like musicals, I like mysteries -- I thought I would absolutely be in this show's target audience.  And I even thought the opening number wasn't bad.  But by the time Hugh Jackman was singing along with "Sympathy for the Devil" -- and the sound was mixed in such a way that we could hear Mick Jagger way more than Hugh Jackman and it looked just like a really crappy lip-sync -- well, I was ready to tune out.  Melanie Griffith's scenery-chewing pretty much sealed the deal.  I couldn't even make it through the first episode.  No, let me amend that.  I couldn't even make it through the first episode while I was doing something else.  It was just playing in the background and I had to turn it off.

What I'm trying to say here is:  it wasn't good.

But the injustice of it all, the real reason I'm blogging about this, and my general concern for what the cancellation of this show means about the Great American Viewing Public is this:

Cavemen is still on.

ROFL...LOL  I can't BRING myself to even attempt to watch Cavemen.  We can only wish/hope/pray that one goes down the drain.

There's no accounting for the total lack of "good taste" in this country.

Then again, I'd get tired of opera, musicals and dramatic theater if that was all that was available.

But <i>Cavemen</i>?
