So I’m watching TV tonight after work. I make it through a few episodes of the Daily Show. Then I’ve got several Bond movies and a couple episodes of The Americans that I’ll need to wait for Mrs. Likko to watch with me. And for some reason the live channel is on ABC which is showing The Bachelor and Celebrity Wife Swap and I can just feel my intelligence eroding in the presence of these shows.
My solution: Spike TV has a marathon of World’s Worst Tenants. It’s quite a lot like work. No, seriously. The TV show has some dramatic moments that may have been played up for the cameras some. But I have at least one case a week that qualitatively compares to the situations depicted on the show. It’s not a freak show.
…Well, okay, it is a freak show, but so are the cases I handle in court. More than a dozen of them a week.
