    That was only slightly amusing.

    The Chasers seems to have gone down in quality since 2007.

    I don't really think that it was, in itself, all that funny. It was probably designed to offend people, or to push boundaries and make people beg the question as to what is sacrosanct in society, or to merely make the point that some people can't take jokes.

    Yeah, I didn't find it all that funny, it's more the fact that people are so annoyed at it that makes it good.

    I agree- quality is not as high- although last night's episode was better than last week's. Increased exposure means decreased ability to be funny. The public is not unsuspecting anymore.

    For my TV show, I try to make each part (out of 8 per episode) 5 pages long. I've just written one which is 8 pages! This more than makes up for the measly 3 from the previous part! :D

    They can scarcely hide behind the "sometimes comedy offends people" mantra if it isn't bloody funny or intended to be comedic.

    Being offensive for offensives sake is hardly a good thing if anything it shows a marked contempt for your fellows.

    It's kind of a 'you had to be there' thing. Half the entertainment with them comes from knowing that the media will kick up a stink about it eh next day. A slight 'forbidden fruit' element, if you like.

    But, as you say, it can't just do that if it isn't at all funny. Good thing it was reasonably amusing.

    It was one of the few jokes they've had the past 2 weeks that ended before it had gone on too long.

    Yeah. They didn't have the cameras trained on the audience the whole time, but if you watch it with sound, you can hear them laughing.

    I was laughing.

    And they're probably laughing now too, 2 week holiday. Only question is whether it's two weeks paid vacation or not?

    I don't know... they weren't laughing all that hard and you do know they edit the laughter to suit the skit?

    Well that's one person...

    I've had a pretty good weekend. It was my birthday on Monday, but due to my work schedule we celebrated on Sunday. So far I've gotten two Pearls Before Swine treasuries, $130 in cash, and off of E-Bay, I managed to snag myself a copy of Dragon Warrior IV (an old, hard-to find NES game) for $27. My parents didn't have my present ready at the time, so I'll be getting that this weekend, hopefully.

    Also, we got a kitten. He's cute, but very rambunctious. :love:

    I love Pearls Before Swine. I even managed to make a full presentation about it for a "Faith and Doubt" themed English class, purely because I wanted an excuse to read all of my books again.
