I watched something called The Factory on Spike TV a couple of weeks ago. Spike positions themselves as airing material aimed at men – and not just real men, but people who embrace some sort of cartoon version of what men are supposed to be, circo 1980. Just interested in trucks and violence and gals with large tracts of land. The sitcom was about four or five hard-working joes who give each other a loving hard time. But they’d never call it loving, because that would be gay, and would fail to fall into the non-quiche-eating category of men. Mostly, i don’t remember the show. And mostly, I don’t want to.
