True to life
13 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Montell Williams hosted this "Reality game show" on Showtime. The object was to get voted the "American Canidate", but the winner didn't get a spot on the 2004 ballot, instead he's just President of play-land, I guess. It also mirrored the 2004 Presidential race closely such as, a Gephardt, former Congressman Dick's sister, losing horribly. Democrats at each others throats and saying insanely stupid things, and a Republican winning the whole thing. Park Gillespie, you are the man. The parts where Park wasn't on the camera were so bad though. But I did get my dumb friend to say he wanted to bang this one candidate's friend, I then told him that she used to be a He & he got all red-faced while I laughed and laughed at him. Good times, good times.

My Grade: C
