"What's up, vaginas?"



I've been watching Rockville CA on TheWB.com over the past few days, and the commercial above is accurate. The commercial is also almost as long as each episode.

My thoughts on the series so far:

  • How could Aiden play a dumber role than he did on South of Nowhere? I didn't think that was humanly possible.


  • When did Dan move to California? Oh, that's not Dan? Is that Adam Brody? No, I was mistaken: in this show, the self-referential, adorkable, dark-haired, pale-skinned gentleman who bears a remarkable resemblance to creator Josh Schwartz is named "Hunter." He is completely different that the other two doppelgängers.


  • Just because you can use salty language (at 1:30) on the interwebs that you cannot use on network television does not mean that it will add to your program's humor or quality. For advice on including cursing in jokes, please see Jim Gaffigan.


  • The only nonwhite person in the show is the well-read bouncer? Really, TheWB.com?

Oh I wanted to watch this. Dude Hunter is Ashleigh's Boyfriend on Greek. Does that mean he isn't going to be on Greek anymore? She never gets the guy.

Wow, the black guy appeared more than once. And had lines.

And those guys in the bathroom, a little too much looking directly at each other.

I remember talking about this. The Douche is way too self-aware to be remotely realistic. He either needs to be dumber, or more douchey yet believes himself to be less of a douche than he actually is.
