WHAT, Nicky? I...

I have no.... I just.

[Trailer for Nick Brendon's new pilot, in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself, in a supporting role. Neither worksafe nor BRAIN safe. The Nick-related jhadkjshd;ahondiubibWHUT starts at about 2:10.]

I... just... WHAT?! No, no, no, no....

Would you happen to have any extra brain bleach for not only the NB-related atrocity, but the badness in general?

NO. *hoards brain bleach*

Yeah, that was pretty much my reaction, too. He must be desperate for work.

I'm not sure whether it's "desperate for work" or "OMFG guys, guys you GUYS I have this awesome idea! We'll have a show about us only, you know, like, the asshole versions of us?"

I guarantee you that at some point during the planning for this it was described as a "younger, edgier Curb Your Enthusiasm."

That thought is funnier than anything in the trailer and isn't nearly as mentally scarring.

Oh, the pitch comes right out and says it shares the myopic characters of "Curb Your Enthusiasm;" the random insanity of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia;" and the witty banter of “Arrested Development.”

The sad thing is I would watch it. I'd hate it, but I'd watch it.

I ... think that being a John Barrowman fan is safer than being a Nick Brendon fan. *runs*

Of course it is! Yours will make make out with James Marsters!

It is really tame RPF! They're all playing themselves! (Though yeah, bonus brainbreaky points for finding another James and another Emma to have him perform with.)

That's really... almost enough for me to give up on TV, is what it's really.

Julia, I can see me now, hiding in my bedroom, watching my Slings and Arrows Boxed set over and over again...

I don't feature it getting picked up a) we could just end the sentence there, or b) by a network that's not HBO or showtime, fwiw.

I am not sure whether it speaks to my level of irreversible corruption or just how tired I am that I actually mentally inserted the word "hand" in that sentence when I was skimming the comment notification, then had to go back and look again to check.

The sad thing (for me) is I'm amused by the show in a vague 'this is one of those shows that wants me to watch characters I can't stand as people because the dialogue is funny' way. It's just .... ahidhsdkjsdkjh WHUT.

I... he... they... WTF? does not cover it.

And yet, I would watch it because it's Nick.

Oh NICK... please to be stopping that now, ok?

Much improved by turning down the volume and skipping the non-NB parts, then it's rather good!

I finally watched this (once I got some 'net time not at work) and it was going along for quite some time while I thought "Why is everyone so upset about th--OH DEAR GOD MAKE IT STOP NO NO NO NO NO!"

It's embarrassment-squick humor, which just makes me cringe and hide behind a pillow. :-(
