Have you seen Rocketboom "Casual Friday"?

bean.gifJesus H Christ. I know it's early days but this latest Rocketboom was truly pathetic. I cringed watching it. Have a look...tell me what you think. My opinion seems to be in the minority - there are heaps of comments from people saying they loved it. You gotta wonder what psych drugs the dummies are on to find this shit funny.
These guys need to go and catch some Family Guy or South Park or even some old Get Smart or Seinfeld - that stuff is edgy and funny. This dorky College Boy humour demeans the show...demeans the new host...demeans Andrew Baron.

There is, of course, the chance that I'm missing something extremely funny in this episode. But I doubt it.

Please leave me a comment. I'm fascinated to know what these dopey Americans commenting on Rocketboom find so side-splittingly funny. Fuck...even yesterday's bison were funnier than this shit.

I'm willing to bet you aren't in the minority on this one. The ONLY reason there are so many positive responses is due to the huge media exposure RB has gotten from all the drama. Now every half-wit with an internet connection is watching... and commenting.

These people probably had just turned off MTV after watching "the coolest video ever from [insert shitty, cookie-cutter band name here]" and stumbled onto RB 2.0.

Those who've been watching RB for a while (myself included) are more than disappointed. I liked Amanda a lot... but I was excited at the opportunity for RB 2.0.

Unfortunately, there has been very little (read: absolutely zero) originality since Amanda left. It's clearer than ever that she was the one behind the creativity and cleverness that was RB.

Well it wasn't just Amanda who left but her Producer boyfriend and her brother - they're a team, it seems. I like the new girl but so far the programme has been pretty ordinary. Not good enough for something that's getting up to a Million Hits. You gotta wonder what-the-fuck they are up to.
