I was thinking the same thing. The calibre (ah, nuts, now I have worry about spelling!) of the posters here is outstanding and impressive. I wonder if Muggum anticipated attracting a group like us. (I think he may have.)

Hey it's Thursday and Muggum still has not forsaken us.
I wonder if anyone else related to the show will ever be back?

Well, now that the show's over, I'd like to share my opinion (Not that anyone cares):
Sorry to anybody I may offend, but I'm just being honest. (And sorry it's so long).
Gina - Didn't really have enough time to get into her roll. Horrible acting during her farewell speech, but I guess it was supposed to be over the top.
Earl - Fine, but I got the idea that he was just acting as himself. I forgive him the "underwear slip" because the fish boxers weren't originally supposed to be his.
Dr. Pat - A fine actress, and I liked her character a lot. I loved her performance piece with the puppets, and her "relationship" with Hutch (complete with her final vote).
Molly - the producers should have gotten someone with some acting/improvisation talent instead of hiring some Hawaian Tropics model for her looks. I'm shocked that she didn't blow the whole thing. She didn't remember she's supposed to be religious and say Grace! She didn't remember where she was supposed to be from! When she did get caught in a mistake what did she do? She bit her own tongue and ran! (I think I tried that same thing when I was 6 years old). She shouted out "Johnny Carson" when that is the ONE NAME SHE WAS TOLD NOT TO SAY! Everything about her seemed phony and forced. "I'm wearing a bikini, which is ok I know now"?!? Try *ACTING* instead of just saying things.
Kip - Brilliant. Hillarious. Excellent casting. Excellent acting!
Ashleigh - She was supposed to be a bitch and she wasn't until like the 2nd to last episode. Kip and Hutch showed they're great acting ability by playing characters that were different from how they are in real life. Ashleigh is not a great actor.
Hutch - F*ING AWESOME! Genious! Totally threw himself into the role and it paid off big time!
Brian - I put him in the same group as Earl. Great, but it didn't seem like he was playing a character. He was just being himself.
Matt - What can I say? Cudos to the people that cast him. You did an amazing job. Matt was the perfect Joe Schmo.
Ralph - The perfect smarmy host. I loved every eviction ceremony because of him. (and I loved the bee suit).
Molly's Boyfriend - Great job.
Network Exec. - Not very believable. Even gullible Matt wasn't entirely fooled.
My main problem with the show was how sexist and demeaning to women it was. This was a great show because of the characters, and didn't need to have naked whores in every episode. ("Stay tuned after the break and you'll get to see Molly's nipple pop out of her bathing suit!!") But I guess I should expect that from Spike TV. They're trying to make a name for themselves as "The First Network for Horny Men Who Don't Respect Women". I'm sorry this show wasn't produced for a less chauvanistic network. I think it could have been a lot better.
Maybe the ratings wouldn't have been as high if it wasn't for all of the strippers, but I know several people who STOPPED watching the show because of them.

Muggum must be doing research for TJSSII or his next altered reality series based upon an online chat room.

I know what you mean. I just wrote it off to the fact that it was on SPIKE, after all. But I do think Spike may have misinterpreted what men want. T & A is a given, but that's available EVERYWHERE these days. If I'm reading the comments here, the T & A was appreciated but it wasn't what attracted and kept the male audience. I think it was in a review somewhere, and I won't even come close to what they said, but basically it mentioned that men were apprecaitive of the humor and cleverness. If Spike is paying attention, they'll be looking for more show like this and leave the T & A (or most of it) to the multitude of other sources.

I quoted Matt Schmo, before I typed in my opinion, accidentally hit enter, and Wendiness just about said what I was going to (are you psychic?)! Thanks Wendiness, you said it better than I could have!

Sorry to hear about all of the difficult times that you have been/are going thru. But it sounds like you have a positive attitude thru all of it and that is the most important thing. Mental health is very important. And I hope that your life takes a turn for the better and we are all glad that you have joined us and hopefully we have entertained you and made you laugh (just like Joe Schmo did)!
