Dr. Frankenstein has "class"
20 June 2010 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

I find it interesting how they can call many people's clothes "childish", yet I would say that their method of telling these things to these people is what is truly "childish". If they did this in a calmer and more informing way, instead of just dramatizing everything to death, with even a hint of respect to the victim in this, I think this could be a much more successful show, and not just the criticizing joke that it is.

If the show hosts had a little class of their own, and didn't just go around shoving their so-called "class" down people's throats, I think this would be a much better show. Because it is hard enough to take normal criticism, let alone when the criticism is meant to be purposely embarrassing.

Instead of embarrassing people to death, then handing them money and telling them to go buy expensive clothes, wouldn't it make more sense to actually teach them to use what money they have to get a better looking wardrobe for job interviews, or whatever else it's TRULY needed for? And if your job situation doesn't require you to look like royalty, what's the point to dress like one? Because many companies in the world today have taken in the more laid-back model working environment from Silicon Valley, and let their employees dress like, what this show calls "childish."

What are these people trying to do? Get everyone to go around 24/7 looking like they're the King or Queen? Because, according to them, it's OK to go around dressed like a hippie-style executive, just as long as they're not what they call, "dressed like a whore."

Honestly, how is this any different than if they were trying to get an overweight person to loose weight by getting a bunch of people at work to point at them and call the person fat, then handing the person a famous cook and professional trainer for a couple months?

How in the world can Discovery still call this channel The Learning Channel?
