Farting Coming to America was supposed to be a 6-part series and instead was filed down to a 1-hour special on NBC. A re-run of "Wife Swap" beat the show last night and it tied with re-runs of "Old Christine" and "How I Met Your Mother" so I wouldn't really call Posh' reality show a hit. The critics also beat it bloody.
Posh is completely pleasant, not annoying and that is the problem. The producers tried to make the show a little more exciting by putting in scripted and lame scenarios like Posh getting pulled over, Posh asking for her DMV photo to be re-touched and Posh having some weird lunch with the socialites of Beverly Hills (the hottest one is pictured above).
There just isn't enough there to make an interesting TV show. She wasn't dumb enough, bitchy enough or funny enough to keep my attention. Every now and again you can tell they gave her a few funny things to say, but it failed flat.
I like my Posh better silent and dressed to the nines.
I will say that if I hear the word "mayjah" (British for Major) one more time I'm going to make a "mayjah" fist and pound Posh in her "mayjah" head and send her to a "mayjah" hospital. That's "mayjah."
When this shit comes out on DVD we should hold a big party and take shots of whatever booze is laying around everytime her ass says "mayjah." We will "mayjah-ly" end up in St. Vincent's by the end of the night.
