In my time here I've written recaps for "Celebrity Mole: Hawaii", "The Family", "Last Comic Standing", "Cupid", "The Simple Life", "The Apprentice", and now this "Superstar" recap. I don't think anyone could accuse me of taking any of these shows seriously.
Honestly? No. Not this season. I think I watched the first two shows the year that Clay and Ruben were on, but that's it. But I will say that if this is a highly scripted show (and I don't doubt that it is), that Tone Loc's writer must not be getting paid by the word.It is such a totally obvious, highly scripted parody of AI (have you seen even one episode of AI????)
Thanks for the compliment! However, I think rather than worry about being banned for defening your honor, you would worry that people with question your taste in writing! Personally, I think there are far more talented writers on this site than me. I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be a member of the Blue Group. Not only are they a talented lot, but they're genuinely good people. As for Regan, I can't take credit for that; during an interview for LCS, Ralphie May was kind enough to suggest I check him out.Now before Eny gets me banned for defending my honor and the rest of the FORT nails me to one of Paul Varghese’s Daddy’s crosses, please understand that I think you are arguably the best writer I have read on the FORT, and though I am a Newbie to posting, I read all of your recaps (and many of your posts) of LCS1 last year and was duly impressed and amused. And I owe you big time for turning me on to Brian Regan, whose humor sent my endorphins into overdrive.
Imagine how Woodward and Berstein would have felt if they'd gone on vacation for a week, only to come back and find out that Joe Reporter had blown the lid off the Watergate scandal. I'm sure their reaction would pale in comparison to the justifiable outrage the lovely and talented Stargazer would have felt if she had returned from vacation to discover that I'd exposed the WB's Great Reality Scam while she was suffering through the horror that is "It's a Small World."Admittedly I read each word of your SuperStar recap, eager for the moment you would call the WB’s bluff and expose the whole shenanigan to the FORT world (a moment which, sadly, never came), yet I still found your recount of the show to be devilishly clever and found myself laughing out loud at regular intervals.
Thanks again for the kind words, and I'm glad you found the recap entertaining. Personally, I'm looking forward to reading Stargazers recap of the finale so I can find out how this thing turned out!
