William Shatner you’ll always be Capain Kirk to me, I love you from the days of Star Trek, I admit you lost me on T.J. Hooker and I haven’t come to watch Boston Legal. I did enjoy your comeback with Priceline, although I’ve never used the service. I also love Reality T.V. and I love Reality Game Shows! Sometimes things are so bad that they become good. That is the case with Show Me The Money. I think the whole thing is incredibly cheezy. Growing up like Ugly Betty in Queens (my maiden last name is even similar to her’s) everyone always had on Sabado Gigante. That is exactly what this show reminds me of, is America’s t.v. production going down the drain?
The most offensive part of this show is when he says, “show me the money”. The girls already have the scrolls at chest level, so when they “show” it looks like they are flashing the men. It really is disgusting. The funny part is they are even dancing in a latin style, did I see some salsa steps in there? ABC stands for American Broadcast Company doesn’t it? stop taking your cues from cheezy telemundo shows, even there novelas are better than what’s going on here… and as a 1/2 Brazilian I am in total shock over this turn of events. But the fact in my mind remains, things are so bad sometimes that they become good and classics.
