    I can't believe how bad this is. Holy shit.

    Holy. Shit.

    Lets all get together on a tv sitcom project, apparently you can just throw any old shit together and it will air. If this is how low the bar is, we can at least be slightly above this.

    I'm telling you if people actually watch this crap, then the people of this here message board can write a show and it would be better

    well of course it is an overexatteration, hopefully you realize that, but that is the joke

    but yeah, go to Portland, people are all over the place trying to be as "hip" as they think they can possibly be
