Season One Talk: aka formerly known as The Soup

I have to call foul.  The guy yelling at One Piece Man was named Seamus, which is an Irish name.  The aggro farmer was speaking with a Yorkshire accent

During what I will genteelly refer to as the elephant scene, I had to cover my eyes and thank my lucky stars that the dialog was in French.  I still ended up gagging without the visuals or the audio.

If one of those other panelists on the View-like show (on what I can only assume is a Christian network) were to snap and murder the passive-aggressive host, no jury in this land would convict.

I remember seeing someone else (Bear Grylls?) squeeze water out of elephant poop years ago so I thought I would be fine watching that clip but I was still trying not to gag. Blech!

“Heavy is the meathead who wears the balloon crown.” “Shark Tank, but with lower stakes and louder people... chairmooks of the board...” I love this show so, so much. 

And though we don’t get Vanderpump Rules, we do get Iyanla! (Actually that exercise didn’t seem all that bad, once you got past the initial silliness.)

That poop scene was nasty.

 So of course I had to look this show up... it didn’t seem to have its own Facebook page, but I found the one for TCT and one of the latest posts quoted a Bible verse that said “Let all that you do be done in love.” Uh, I guess “alll” doesn’t include being a snarky son of a gun to your “friends”? “When do the *friends* show up?” indeed! Ouch! Those ladies are 100% gritting their teeth waiting for at least a small hunk o’ coal to hit Julie on the head.

Now, GET OUT OF ME GARDEN!

That guy wasn't Scottish, Joel. He sounded like he was from West Yorkshire, or possibly Lancashire. Still, his accent was more convincingly Scottish than the guy they had pretending to be him. Those on-set skits are definitely the worst part of this show. It's okay when he gets stars from other Netflix shows to appear, but when it's people I don't recognise in costumes, it just doesn't hit the funny bone. 

QVC seems like such a depressing channel, and a soulless place to work. I've never watched it, but any clips I've seen are of people who appear to be uniquely untalented and desperate.

But not as depressing at that thoroughly amateur looking show, Julie & Friends. Good grief, that was pathetic to watch. That woman had negative levels of charisma.

I found an article about him from when the clip first went viral. Definitely Yorkshire.  Also amusingly, the article said that his wife didn't know why he had to get so angry, because all she ever had to do to get them to move was to ask politely.

This has been such an nice way to wrap up the weekend for the past 13 weeks, I'm not sure how I feel about being able to binge it instead of making it into a ritual.

Still, I'll take more episodes if Netflix (ba-dong!) will allow Joel to keep using salty language.

I'm not sure about binging this show, either, since that means they're not exactly timely.  Even though they aren't pulling ALL their clips from that week's shows, there has been enough of them to make me feel like it's current.  If they film all of the episodes in advance, that means they're probably moving away from network tv and doing more internet?  Not sure.  I'll still watch, but it'll feel different.

Does it matter if they are current or not. Most of the clips they play are for stuff I wouldn't normally watch anyways. Hell for all I know Joel could have been showing me 4 year old clips from Vanderpump Rules, this past season. But as long as they are funny I wouldn't care.

Lol. Same. I think the only current show that I actually watched that they showed a clip was Survivor, so I guess you have a valid point.

I’m just glad Vanderpump Rules is basically over for the season. Maybe The Not Soup will be back to weekly eps by the time it comes back :)

I do think this show drives viewers to the show it features. So maybe Netflix’s MO is to drive people to shows? Hmm.
