it's the realistic view of a certain subset of 20somethings in NYC...just probably not the type that most here would want to associate with

well said. it's the realistic view of likely about 20% of 20somethings in NYC. the media and the critics just love to praise and glorify sex-driven shows like this as if 99% of the population is the same way.

Those are the last 5 movies he produced with new Anchorman on the way. So yeah, "still a good thing."


Isn't Bridesmaids the only one of those that wasn't a disappointment?

yeah you totally can go hang out in brooklyn for a couple years and run into 1, maybe 2 black guys

seems like the show presents a version of NYC without the people it doesn't want associated with NYC

she addressed this issue on Howard Stern and said that she or someone (I don't remember who) will have a black boyfriend next season due to the media pressure about it.

of course she didn't say it exactly like that because that would be politically incorrect, but that's basically what she meant.

the funniest part about having the republican/white black guy was that they stereotypically had him fricking a fat white girl

Agree. Show sucks.

1. Fat arse liberal chicks.

2. With tattoos.

3. Naked.

Game over!


The characters are whiney obnoxious self absorbed rich white kids bitching and moaning everything isn't easy.

Everyone wants to think they are young and hip. Hence the hype.

I'd prefer this guy in the part over fat, ugly girl. He's even a better actor.
