The City Recap

Sometimes you wonder why bad reality tv shows exist, and then you realize it's so you can read brilliant recaps, like Pareene's review of last night's episode of The City. "The Canadian guy is 'Duncan' and he is Erin's dorky Canadian boyfriend, from Canada, but now he is in New York, staying with Erin, his mysterious American girlfriend. Erin kinda looks like someone we went to college with, and is therefore marginally relatable, as a human being. Meanwhile Olivia looks like a Virtua Fighter and Whitney like Mac Tonight so Erin's got a leg up, precisely until she says 'teach me a choahrad.' Girls should teach themselves chords. Did Bikini Kill in vain?"


Okay. That show makes more sense now if I take it in this context.

I used to adore Television Without Pity just for this reason. Wherever you are, Regina who recapped Alias, I love you.
