Checked out The Bad Girl’s Guide this week, about three modern (well, not actually modern modern; feels more like a 1980s-1990s version of “modern” in regards to sexual enthusiasm and the like. Not that I’m against sexual enthusiasm, mind you!) gals living together and seeking pleasure. The show has its own rhythm, an aggressive bounce which is nice in its own way. However, the audaciousness that this is built around wasn’t all that impressive or funny, the things that are supposed to be taboo are taboo only by TV standards, not by real life standards (hey! Creative people smoking the dope when seeking inspiration! What baaaaad girls they are!), and Jenny McCarthy, whom I’ve not paid close attention to in anything else, comes off a bit bland.
It’s a reasonable attempt, and it may be for some folks, but it ain’t for me.
