Can We Talk About Bad Girls Club?
Watched an episode of Bad Girls Club for the very first time yesterday, and let’s take some time discussing plot lines the Oxygen Network is transmitting for our viewing pleasure, shall we?
In this episode (Season 8, episode 8), the girls (I’m assuming they’re all bad) invite some boys (Also these boys must be Bad Boys) over to the house. One girl with the neon hair gets mad because these men couldn’t pay for pizza. They streak in their backyard. They are then sent (by whom? God?) to Lake Havasu, where they drink on a boat, and then go on an outing to a club. At the club half of the Bad Girls are dancing on a table, while the other half get mad because they are dancing on the table. So four out of the seven girls go back to the hotel and lock the other girls out.
Back at the hotel, the girls stab an inflatable palm tree with a knife. The girls left back at the bar get angry because they were deserted. One girl yells a lot and then hits a wall with her hand. The next day, one of the Bad Girls break another Bad Girl’s necklace. The End.
I don’t think I’m over-simplifying things, this is the episode’s most interesting plot points. How pissed would we all be if Walter White took a minute off his busy schedule cooking meth to break a person’s plastic necklace (and spend 13 minutes of the episode talking about it)? Or if Don Draper poked some holes in an inflatable palm tree? Or if Sofia Vergara took 20% of an episode of Modern Family being angry somebody couldn’t pay for pizza (actually, that might be funny)?
I’m not telling you i dislike reality television, there is more plot in the first three minutes of any episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race than in the excruciating hour it took to watch Bad Girl’s club. Have they run out of things to do on tv? Why are these things interesting to people? Why have i wasted 1,1933 characters on a post on Bad Girls? Can somebody save me? Hold on, I’m going to watch another episode.
