So, as part of something I now regret we got some free "Make Me Beg for Death (tm)" points.
Free HBO for a month.
So, I turned on the Watchman series. Holy dog shat.
Apparently it doesn't include Smoking. I don't know this for sure but there was no warning on the intro. I felt much better about the social socialness. Sure mind dead drivel ... but ... no one is putting a fag in their mouth.
Then, I realized, it was an elaborate scam. What if someone made a series so bad that no one would watch the later episodes? You could make like a 40 episode series of Elmer Fudd repeat videos but make the first episode so terrible that no one would ever watch anything past the first episode. Perfect crime.
It's Watchman ... we have to watch it ... it's nerd cred. Like reading Dr. Zhivago ... no one reads Dr. Zhivago.
Jeremy Irons was a nice touch. After the D&D movie, does anyone even know who that guy is?
A movie that focuses on characters using masks to conceal their something ... how does that work in a world where we wear masks to show our love of holiness.
True to their word, I was begging for death 20 minutes in ... they say torture doesn't work but I have to say I was giving it all up 24 minutes in. I was remembering in perfect detail every secret I ever knew and baby ... I was singing.
Even knowing the scam and wanting to prove myself right ... I couldn't take my head from the toilet bowl fast enough to switch over to The Fresh Prince or somethin ... anythin else .... even fugging Nash Bridges.
Perfect fugging crime.
The good news of course and it's small is you can wear any costume you want for Halloween and say it was a dude from Watchmen episode 4. I got some big purple clown bowling shoes and green sombrero ... the Dookin Burrito!!!! Who could challenge you?
