Proof That We Watched WAY Too Much ‘American Idol’

The other day, the Ford commercial featuring Taylor Hicks came on the television. Matthew, very nonchalantly stated, “That’s Taylor.”

  1. How people can dedicate that much time to a ripped of television show is beyond me. It was originally a British show called “Pop Idol.” I saw 5 minutes of it when I was there (in my own defense, I was walking into a pub at the time and they had it on) – and it sucked then, too.

  2. In fairness, we Americans are 10 to 20 years behind the Brits in TV sophistication. I STILL roll in the floor at Monty Python. It, Jolt Cola, and Ramen Noodles are the only things than sustained me through undergrad studies. Ah, for one more Jolt Cola-induced fit of cornholio (see Beavis & Butthead)!

  3. Finally, I know someone else who was glued to American Idol. There is no shame in it…we all need to escape from reality once in a while!

    By the way, I wish Chris had won… but Taylor was a better choice over Katherine.

  4. Oh, I agree about British TV being better (in general – I maintain that Pop/American Idol sucks regardless of which country it’s in, but that’s just me). Whenever I can, I make sure to catch Python and Benny Hill on BBC America. Alright, if you’re a British TV fan, Chris, maybe you can help me out. There was a BBC show a few years back on Fox – it was about a NY cop who was working for the London police on an exchange program. He had this odd habit of picking match books everywhere and pinning them on a London map. It only ran here for a little while, but I thought it was great. The problem is, I can’t remember name of the show! Ring any bells?

  5. As for the Fox show — my intensive need to not let questions go unanswered led me to Google some of the keywords concerning the television show. Most likely match: Keen Eddie, now on DVD, according to IMDB. It was out in 2003, and we missed it due to grad school and having a kid, but we’re going to check it out — it had some great reviews.
