    I'm checking out G4's programming to see if there's anything worthwhile (haven't found anything yet) and came across a show:

    Human Wrecking-Balls

    It's a show where two brothers, "martial arts champions," set about destroying something with themselves as the title wrecking-balls. Examples include a hotel room, a one-story house, and a nightclub.

    So, I ask y'all: is this entertainment?

    ***
    My own answer: no, it's shit. Pure, unvarnished, male-based shit.

    Granted, I loathe the destruction of useful items and daydream of gutting Bam Magera and the rest of his "lets destroy stuff because Bam's rich enough to buy more stuff for us to destroy" band of idiots with some kind of sharp implement (not too sharp though, as they should be permitted to live long enough to really experience destruction first-hand). So, I'm not positively inclined toward this idiocy.

    It may be a silly show, but those two guys are awfully cute wrecking balls.

    Don't know; went with the show's self-description and have now added quote-marks to the original post.

    We were watching TV right before i left the states and stumbled across the most innovative show that captures the American viewer precisely.

    I believe it was entitled "MAN vs. FOOD" and involved a succession of alpha male type individuals eating a vast quantity of various foods items..... I also believe this was on the discovery channel and what I would have called 'Educational television"


    Not to be completely mono-coastal....The new Year over here brought back a much hated favorite of mine the 11th/12th Season of Z-list celebrity big brother....

    What is entertainment?

    I dunno... I kinda like Jackass for instance. Human wrecking balls (and yeah, awfully cute ones at that LOL) would be pretty interesting to watch... for ONE episode. Not the entire raison d'ĂȘtre of the show. So yeah... it's shite.

    *me is beginning to wonder at how much most male-targeted shows reeks of bromancing LOL*

    There's something for everyone.

    If you don't like human wrecking balls, then you can change channels and find something you do like.

    It's called freedom of choice. We are lucky we have it, in other countries, where the TV is state controlled, they don't have that choice.
