Log in to Reply Sex scenes, there are SO MANY OF THEM Log in to Reply Survivor/Big Brother/Bachelorette etc., only casting wannabe influencers. You have to have an agent now to get cast on any of these shows. Way more interesting when they had a genuine mix of people from different walks of life. Log in to Reply Children. Never seen a show made for adults that didn’t go downhill after adding a kid to the story. Even adult-oriented shows that are like that from the get-go don’t typically last long. People get mad at me any time I bring it up in real life, but seriously, how many adult-oriented shows that added a baby or kid lasted for more than a season or two after that character was introduced? How many shows with plots about something like someone trying to protect a child lasted for more than a season or two? Because I can’t think of even a single one. Even if exceptions that I’m unaware of exist, it doesn’t matter because they’re still vastly outnumbered by shows that got canned because of it. Studios need to leave the kids to shows that are actually made for kids. Even if some people try to claim otherwise, most people clearly don’t want to see them on tv.

I wish i could literally bump into a lady at the grocery store and help her pick up her things before she lifts her head up in some slow motion, windy way with George Michael “Careless Whisper” playing in the background. It’s usually me dropping my can of salsa in the electronics department at walmart with jimbo and uncle ted laughing their ass off.
