My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
You say that but…no.
No, it just ends with you having to kill a monkey.
You finally get that gun away from the monkey and you’re having to hold it down and squeeze and squeeze on it’s little monkey throat because that’s the cleanest death the monkey is gonna get after all the corpses.
And that monkey doesn’t know what’s going on, because it’s an animal. It’s cold and scared and in pain from when you had to break it’s monkey arm and it can feel itself dying.
All because you thought a monkey with a gun would be awesome.
I’m not a huge Duck Dynasty fan but I still think the appeal of the show is obvious; it’s the Beverly Hillbillies done as a reality tv show. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that premise. If anything the problem is that the actual show fails to live up to the potential of that idea.
Completely agree with you about Whodunnit. What a delightfully ridiculous show. The insane melodrama from some of the contestants is also surprisingly entertaining (“Don’t trust anyone. Everyone is lying. Everyone.”).
I just googled “Whodunnit?” and apparently it airs down here on ABC. How did I not know about this?!? This sounds like the ridiculously “so-bad-its-good” kind of reality TV that the big three usually promote 24-7 and this is the first I’ve heard of it.
The Neal Gaiman episode of the Simpsons was pretty good for such a recent episode; the Ocean’s XX parody elements played well, and Gaiman playing himself as an amoral plagiarist was great.
I’m left curious about how exactly Whodunnit worked. Was it just a matter of winner gets cash, second place gets to be the killer? Because if not, if Cris was meant to be the killer the whole time, it’s not exactly a fair game, is it? Cris solved many of the final riddles, especially towards the end, and who she shared information with had a huge impact on the outcome….
