The only show that cocaine could fuel and produce.
2 May 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

TV shows only have one criteria today: to have a point. No matter how vile and stupid they can get and what issues they can use to make people watch, all they require is a point. And the point of this one is that both 'stars' are complete idiots.

Many claim that this is scripted. If it is, it makes it doubly sad. If it were truly unscripted then the lack of anything happening could be excused. We can then examine why Gary Busey thinks that intelligence is using big words and reading those little $3 pamphlets about aliens and witches that are only found in '12 Items Or Less' checkout lanes. Or why Adam De La Pena's only attribute is being a complete weakling both mentally and physically. Bet you five bucks he's the kid in Middle School who was annoying as a fruit fly and got soundly beaten for it. According to this show, we wasn't beaten enough.

But since it might be scripted, then it shows how stupid it is. People write this? It's not funny. It's more of a 'let's point at a fading Hollywood star and except someone to find the humor.' There's nothing funny about seeing horsefaced Busey go on a bender and De La Pena trying to get some sympathy by being the perpetual victim. In fact, I find it hard to sympathize with him. He's the one who 'created' this show. I think it's fitting that he's tortured for it.

What more can I say? The only thing I got from this show is that cocaine is a helleva drug and some schmucks will do anything to get a show on the air. But they have a lot of gall to expect anybody to watch it. Or even care.
