If viewers can't even make it past the 4:00 minute mark watching the first 20 minute episode -- there is a serious problem here.
'Single White Spenny' is a masochists choice of television programming.
If you love cringe-worthy acting, stale predictable plots, and your gratuitous dosage of pandering sex scenes; If you love to torture yourself and test your mental gauge of endurance -- then this show is for you.
Spencer Nolan Rice plays our main hero named who else -- Spencer, in this sort of "semi-autobiographical" (and I am using air quotes here) series about a blubbering wreck of a man child who is single and white.
I couldn't describe it more better if I tried.
The plot involves Spencer in his ever so exciting and high-larious escapades as a single white male dating multiple women. The originality here is astounding.
To sum it up, Spencer monologues, dates a girl, happens to confront an ex during their date, has sex with her behind his date, continues on with date. That is basically what to expect on the first episode, and perhaps the next episodes after that.
Actually to be honest -- if you are DUMB enough to keep watching, you'll discover that the rest of the episodes try to subvert itself into different stories besides sexing up broads to compensate for a lack of manhood, but are mostly uninspiring or not enough to keep this show alive.
You could of mercifully made this into an 70-minute television special and ended it there.
Unfortunately this has been turned into apparently an 8 episode-per- season depressing withdrawal.
Also not to mention, this is the same fantastic garbage spewed from the same writers dark mud holes transferring it to the hundreds of schmuck comedy movies and television programming.
We are never in one scene for more than at least 3 minutes or less. I could of swore this show has a fetish for frequenting restaurants a lot.
Barely any character development is done and the acting...oh my god the acting is so jarring. Spenny's anyway (this is the same person who lost an 'who can be a better actor' competition from a more hilarious and likable television show. The irony is just baffling.)
Supporting characters are two-dimensional and easily forgettable at best. We see this face, then we are greeted with another. You will barely get to know or have an attachment to these characters other than the star of the show: Spencer. However, the only actual supporting actor (actress in this case) that is watachable and likable is the wonderful Debra McGrath playing the role as Spencer's mother. She is the only person worth watching really.
This show is basically a fantasy of Spencer Rice's laid out on television. He pretty much wants to tell you, the viewers, that he is the eponymous man-whore that scores with a lot of women.
Kenny Hotz was heard laughing.
So is 'Single White Spenny' worth trying to watch? I dare you, but be warned -- you are not in for a pleasant enjoyable experience.
