i watched the new pool reality tv show. i don’t even know where to start.
full disclosure: i watched the first two episodes, each an hour long. this s** works better than xanax. i felt extremely sluggish and apathetic after. maybe mildly homicidal.
this new show is comprised of people i don’t care to know playing in ways i don’t wish to learn in an environment i don’t want to be in. there are two known pros in the show: dechaine & barretta. then there are a bunch of people i don’t know, who act like total douchebags. “act” could be the keyword here, because none of the stuff on the show seem real, or even try to seem real. i don’t even think they’re actual players, just actors hired to be on tv. could be i’m just really out of touch. and there are more screaming and hollering and hopping around than a 70’s gangbang porn, at least what i imagine a 70’s gangbang porn would look like. maybe slightly less hairy, i dunno. correct me if you’re an expert on 70’s gangbang porn, perhaps leave a link in the comments section. on second thought, don’t leave a link.
i would comment on the pool, except what little footage they show are so chopped up & spliced together you never see anyone play a complete game. whoever edited the show must really enjoy stitching, cuz that’s how pool is treated on this program.
of the two pros on the show, dechaine is his usual as*** self~~an unlikable person acting in unlikable ways. barretta on the other hand seemed like she could care less about being there. incidentally, she’s the least douchebaggy of the bunch, but also one of the least interesting character to watch on this show. her husband (i don’t know if that’s her real husband or an actor) relish being a jerk in front of the camera. i could go on.
so this is the new show about pool we get. probably what we deserve right now.
