Workaholics Making Waves On Comedy Central

One of my buddies told me about this show. He even threw a clip on exclaiming that I’d be hooked. At first I thought it looked like a low budget show that would make me laugh once per episode and then I’d forget everything about it. Nope! It actually hits home pretty good because it’s exactly the same kind of humor all my friends joke around with. It’s ridiculous stupid comedy but I mean that in a good way! The show stars with Blake (Blake Anderson), Adam (Adam DeVine), and Anders (Anders Holm) working at a call centre as arguably the worst employees.

It takes a little bit to get going so if you judge it from the very start only you’re missing out on some pretty spectacular stuff. Once it’s rolling the show shines with a realistic feel of stoners realizing they need to get a job in the real world. I can’t even count how many times Adam made me crack up pronouncing words wrong or having a hilarious quick remark. These are normal guys that have fun and it shows. Even more so they’re pretty humble considering the success they have received and that will continue to grow.

If you’ve watched the movie “Pitch Perfect” you will have already seen DeVine as Bumper with “The Treble Makers” doing his thing just as naturally as I’ve come to expect. Even with that movie I thought at first, “Oh no a musical?”. Lucky for me it wasn’t the typical music and was definitely aimed at a younger audience that loves the party lifestyle.

To be clear this is the type of show that appeals to humor stemming from: pee, poo, alcohol, shrooms, stupidity, fun and carelessness and it works well. It’s not necessarily original and it has the low budget cheap feel but it actually works in it’s favor. Comedy Central made a wise decision picking these guys up from their online skit videos titled “Mail Order Comedy” back in 2010. It’s also a great example that the web can actually land you a better spot than YouTube.

I’d say if you like crude shows with silly antics reminiscent of young adults being ridiculous, you should watch this show. Don’t just watch the first episode and say, “I mean it’s okay but I don’t see what the fuss is about”. Watch at least a few episodes, if your not already watching the entire season without stopping THEN you can pass it up. Wishing these guys the best of luck and looking forward to seeing more of them not only in their show but in films and other productions. Make some popcorn, settle in, power up Workaholics and make the night a “tight butthole”!

Catfish TV Show – Real Life or Foolish Ignorance?

A friend was over and she asked if my girlfriend or I have heard of a show called Catfish. Neither of us did so we ended up watching it because it sounded intriguing. The show is about people  that start talking to someone online and develop a relationship. Usually it turns out that they’re not who they said they were and sometimes this is to the extreme.

Now I won’t lie, I actually find the show amusing and enjoy watching it but how realistic is it?

I find it hard to believe that someone was talking to another person online for let’s say 8 months and never skyped or anything. I mean first off if I were talking to someone attractive online and we hit it off, I’d be instantly skeptical if I never met them in person. Why would they be actively chatting online when they could easily date someone local and more than likely get hit on all the time? Let’s get past that point and assume they made themselves very convincing and had a story about how they’re sick of people in their town or something. Now we’ve been chatting for months online and possibly on the phone and I still don’t have any new casual pictures or video chatted? Maybe they always come up with an excuse why they can meet, show a new picture or video chat. Those are pretty huge red flags that would normally alarm a person to demand proof or simply stop talking. “Oh but she/he is my soul mate I just know it!”. COME ON! Really?!

The voice alone if they talk on the phone is a pretty good indicator although not in the case of someone of the same sex and age. I’m talking about when you THINK you’re talking to a good looking model guy and he’s in a bunch of magazines and when you talk to him on the phone he sounds either like a girl or a 14 year old boy. Obviously something is wrong there. I’m talking about when you THINK you’re talking to a hot chick and she refuses to talk on the phone or video chat or maybe sounds one again like a little boy (Maybe it’s still a girl you might say? Well maybe it’s a 13 year old girl and now you’re apparently a predator).

CATFISH

I understand some people get desperate or get caught up thinking how perfect someone is or who they have so many of the same interests but how silly are you to let that blind you of common sense AFTER maybe 2 weeks? Shouldn’t you be interested in seeing they’re face when you talk and if they didn’t have a computer to Skype, wouldn’t you hope that if someone truly “loves” you that they’d buy a cheap laptop or webcam for you?

To be honest I’m not sure if everything is made up for television but these kinds of things DO actually happen in real life. They shouldn’t ever get to this point but they do. Be careful you never know if you’re talking to a  girl, guy or possibly even someone who is transgender.

Do you think the Catfish show is real?
