What a concept! Porn stars singing, dancing and having sex, right on your television! It’s radical! It’s sexy! It’s an entertainment extravaganza! It’s sure to be a hit! Right? Right?
Yes, Channel 4 has once again scraped the dirty, pillbug-infested underside of the programming barrel with their latest attempt to shock and titilate the viewing public, Pornography: the Musical.
Is it cutting edge? I suppose so. It’s also bad. Really bad. Bad concept, bad writing, bad acting, bad directing, bad singing, bad music, very bad lyrics, nauseating sex scenes featuring people I wouldn’t even want to see with their clothes on, and in fact very, very little of any redeeming value whatsoever at any point in the program. If you want to prevent your children from looking at pornography, show them this: it’ll definitely put them off naked people altogether. (OTOH, the future therapy bills will be enormous).
In fact, it’s so bad that I’ve started writing this halfway through the program on the assumption that it’s sunk so low that even if it started improving now and didn’t stop it still wouldn’t start being watchable until the next Democratic administration.
Nope – still bad.
Consider yourself warned, and avert your eyes from this vile televisual excrescence. Save yourself – it’s too late for me…
