Thoughts from being high:

Hell’s Kitchen is the fakest, most self-defeating reality show ever. Not only are the contestants willingly signed up to be verbally and emotionally abused by an Englishman putting on an act that would almost certainly be fired from any real kitchen if he treated his staff that way (and didn’t already own the place himself), but they are all made to look like the most incompetent sacks of shit ever through manipulative editing and having PAs run into the kitchen while the chefs are doing something else and deliberately fuck with them, doing stuff like dumping in more of an ingredient than needed and turning burners down or off so as to undercook the food.

The self-defeating part of this show, and this is probably deliberate in the part of the producers and network, is that the contestants are portrayed as such utter fuckups that it’s caused the winner to be refused the grand prize by the hotel or restaurant’s investors, as they all thought that hiring people like THIS to run a multimillion dollar restaurant was too risky. Can you blame them?

Good Australian show I watched recently about an Aussie hitman:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7472896/?ref_=rvi_tt

Definitely worth a watch, based on a movie called The Magician (I think) which I have been unable to find. Anyway, basically like an Aussie Breaking Bad, not as intense, but if you like that kind of stuff (and really, who doesn't) you'll like this.

I used to watch hours of that show with my Father. I always root for the bad guy and was a fan of Patrick McGoohan, in the few episodes that he was in. The criminals always believe Columbo to be this bumbling idiot. Then Columbo asks that famous line "can I ask you just one more thing?" Then the question that puts all of the pieces together, yet is something so trivial. How long have you done photography? How long have you smoked Lidel Brand Cigars? That's a beautiful car in the driveway, how often do you change the oil in it? Boom, case solved, from a trivial piece of information. One of the criminal of course never considered.

Yo did anyone else watch the Jake Paul / Ben Askren fight? that entire event was fucked dude. The only professionals involved with that event were Cunningham and Mir who are both excellent warriors. The only other redeeming factor was Snoop Dogg yelling at the top of his lungs about the "two million motherfucking dollars, on the set cuz!" lol. He yelled more about his bet than the actual fight :lol:

I can't think of a worse way to spend $50. Agreed that Cunningham and Mir was definitely the highlight, although Regis Prograis is an animal too. The ending to his fight was one of the stranger things I've seen, but that shouldn't take away from him at all.

I'm not even sure why I bothered with this in the first place, but after watching that PPV, I am never going to spend a single dime on anything Jake Paul-related again.
