Amanda won. I knew it would be her four episodes ago. I can't believe I missed Will and Grace for this crap.

Hey - respect the time zones, boardman. I understand your enthusiasm - well, actually I don't, but it hasn't aired out west yet.

hey i just saw this thing on plastic: heather havrilesky breaks down "wedding porn"

But eventually Shannon's neurotic shenanigans are too blatant to disregard. Though we suspect Alex likes being tortured by her better than he likes being sexually catered to by the voluptuous Amanda, he announces with no small amount of regret in his voice that Amanda is probably better for him, since she's sweet, seems to like him, lets him lick chocolate off her naked body, etc., while Shannon pouts and moans endlessly, seeming to blame Alex for everything from her parents' disapproval to the fact that she agreed to be on this cheesy show in the first place.

I dunno... watching Michael Douglas dance *ahem* to "Get Ur Freak On" was kinda scary.

Will and Grace is strident swill -- to gay people what The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer was to African Americans ... only it keeps receiving accolades. I don't get it.

There is so much in this thread for me to shake my head in sorrow at.

Every woman in my office has been yakking about this show for weeks now, and I wound up catching the tail-end of it last night (by accident, honest)... Definitely the TV equivalent of a Ho-Ho...

But still, say what you want about the show, but the idea of a single guy getting to weed out 25 eager, beautiful women for his "perfect match" strikes me as a very sound approach for finding a mate (how do I apply for The Bachelor 2?).

My wife loved the show, and being the good hubby, I tagged along for the last three episodes. Pure & utter crap, obviously, but at least the canned ham had the wisdom to choose the prettiest of the women. Does she remind anyone else of E.D. Donahey?

Having said that...and I'm prepared to duck and run...this Bachelor crap has at least one virtue: it actually makes Fox's "Who Wants To Marry A Millionaire" look like clean, honest fun. I mean, at least Darva & Rick didn't have to fake anything for weeks on end, and go out on faux-dates, and murmur to the camera, and introduce each other to their parents, etc. They went on TV, looked around, and two hours later, got married. Bam! Simple, honest, at least as much as could be expected given the show parameters. least compared to the Bachelor swill.
