Meet the Barkers? No Thanks.
It'd be different if we actually liked Blink 182 or something. But c'mon!! They're such cheesy copycats (And it's not like we ever got rid of our Descendents or 7 seconds or Bad Religion or Screeching Weasle records!) And it might be different if the mallification of America hadn't already spread the gospel of Hot Topic to the farthest corners of this country's nether regions ( wear a mohawk! grr!! snarl! Dye your hair purple!! Wear black! Get a tattoo!! Back off suburbia!!!). And it might be different if we didn't already have a show about newlyweds (duh, Newlyweds) or the family of a real badass "prince of darkness rock star" (The Osbournes).
Basically, if alot of things were different we might actually be interested in MTV's Meet the Barkers.
Sure, a baby in a diaper with a little baby mohawk is cute. And the little girl is cute too. But that ain't enough when the two grown-ups are sooooo unlikable!
MTV brags that Travis is "not just a musician but also an entrepreneur" (no shit). And about Shanna, a "working actress" they tell us that she"recently completed a guest starring appearance in the ABC show Jake in Progress starring John Stamos" (Oh wow -- isn't that the gig the Olsens turned down). Wow. They are so. punk. rock. But they are also rich!!! ha ha ha! nudge, nudge. soooo ironic.
We'd give you more reasons why we didn't like this stupid show, but we couldn't even sit through five minutes of it in order to give you a more thorough analysis.
T-minus five days until Chaotic!!!!
