First of all, the fact that Kevin Bacon is on network TV is alarming/disturbing. Meaning that he's too good for TV.
This is assuming that the film industry isn't in the crapper... which it obviously is.
The reason why you are seeing true A-listers
(not the reality show mouthbreathers that Alley Faith
misnames A-Listers) on dumbed down
TV shows is because the film industry is done.
Isn't it obvious? Everything has wings, CGI, or is a remake
of a dead president and/or 60's, 20's, some other dead dudes idea.
.. which provides a slimey, and transparent illusion to a new crop of viewers that it's original.
Kevin Bacon appeared on a horrible TV show last night,
and it was produced to seem like a movie.
That's the recent trend because we are hungry for something
that resembles a real movie and we're not
getting it in movie theatres. But thankfully I do get hot pretzel bites
so.....My interest was piqued due to the fact that Kevin Bacon can actually act.
with a side of fake cheese.
And it's a new show that's not a remake, so I gave it a chance.
Unfortunately , he was surrounded by subpar acting, boney women who looked more manly than him,
and a script that sounded like it was scrawled on the back of a gum wrapper
in the Mitchell International bathroom stall. What a waste.
Proving once again that Hollywood is in
desperate need for originality and creativity.
And that the "tough" women roles have become so contrived that instead
of being a strong woman who's "Miss Indepedent.. hey girl"...
they appear to be longing for a pork chop and 3 triple milkshakes with
a shot of Weight-On.
Maybe the creators/corportate shills are just afraid to take a risk; simply going
with what is cheap and easy. That means yes they are. ew.
Because of this,
I've curtailed my TV viewing to about 40 minutes a day. My brain thanks me.. except for this past
evening. It's embarrassed in so many ways. I think I'll listen to more radio.
