Okay, everyone, calm down.
10 September 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I'm not surprised in this PC world that almost everyone has forgotten the meaning of the word "sarcasm". That is mainly what "The Man Show" is: a blatant attempt at sarcasm to shock and horrify, but in all cases, it's pretty harmless, much like a well placed whoopie cushion.

"The Man Show" is a glorification, for lack of a better word. It is the glorification of men who like a cold beer, a succession of fart jokes, a display of midgets, and, last but certainly not least, girls on trampolines. It screams "WE'RE HERE, WE'RE PIGS, AND WE'RE NOT GONNA CHANGE!!". At least, when the girlfriends/wives aren't around, as Jimmy demonstrates. Yes, ladies, your men ARE engaging in dirty jokes at the office, beer binges after work, and (this is for my sister-in-law in particular) sneak-peeks at "Lexx" when you leave the room. I have a feeling that the same women who jump and scream about "The Man Show" are the same ones that would sneak off to a Chippendales review at the drop of a hat, but that's just me.

Not only is "The Man Show" a glorification of "typical juvenile male behaviour", it also relishes in making fun of the very lifestyle it is putting on a pedestal. On a recent Labour Day episode, Adam and Jimmy decided to salute the American Stripper "G-String Divas"-style and the guys in the audience were THRILLED, until the clip showed MALE strippers, with Adam and Jimmy as the stars. A big "Ha Ha" to all the guys who thought they were gonna get their jollies off.

Before anyone goes on again about "women being used as sex objects", please, it's old. The human body is an art form and if the Juggies feel comfortable dancing around for the audience's entertainment, more power to them. I find some pretty good ideas for risque Halloween or bondage costumes from the Juggies. And since I'm on the subject of women, the only ones they attack on the show are the women I love to hate myself: the ladies who feel that it is their husbands JOB AND DUTY to pay for all her wares and shopping sprees while she refuses to work and sits at home watching Oprah all day. My hubby and I have separate jobs and bank accounts. We are financially independent from one another while still living in a union. To me, THAT'S what feminism is about. Anyway, I'll get off my soapbox long enough to say that the segment of "What Are These Broads Thinking?" was pretty funny and apart from being in the "woman's natural habitat: THE MALL" which might offend some women, the questions, such as "Who's your female hero?" and "Why all the shoes?", were pretty well thought out and successful handled by the unsuspecting females.

If this show isn't for you for whatever reason, do us all a favour and shut off your television. For the fans out there who get it, including my mother and mother-in-law, it's an unadulterated assault on the senses and funny bone, if not a little on the mind.
