It's All Just A Joke!
8 November 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Everyone in this forum is so quick to criticize this show, but NO ONE here is putting the show in context! Not only is it no Law and Order, but they are not even trying to give that impression!

The show is all a spoof: It's spoofing Hollywood, It's spoofing bimbos, it's spoofing female cliches... Hell, it's even spoofing itself.

The point of the show is not to watch and analyze the characters' decisions! It is meant to be watched as a show making fun of itself.

You say that Val is stupid to do bodyguarding with High Heels? Well what would the show be like if she had dressed up in a skin-tight sexy suit which was perfect for bodyguarding?? Then the humor wouldn't be humor and Val wouldn't be Val. Where's the fun in that?

You people need to open your eyes, and watch this show with a lighter heart. If you want something slick with smooth people who just won't understand your jokes, then go watch the X-files!
