So, we had a rough weekend, didn’t we sweetheart? You decided to venture to back bar and we all know that’s the land of blackout. So as you drag your butt to class and message your best friend, “FML” because you just realized you’re not wearing pants, remember that you can go home and watch these shows. I guarantee they WILL make you feel better about your life…
Do you crave meth at 7am? No? Then feel good about your life. Do you steal oxys and other pain killers from the demographic of the patrons of Cherry Hill Mall? No? Then feel good about your life. Obviously depending on the episode there are a variety of other situational factors that will make you feel great about your life. Every episode, a new reason to feel good. Intervention, the show that keeps on giving.
The thing that kills me about this show is that these people choose to put themselves in this situation. However, the reason why this show will make you feel great about your life is because you are reading this on a computer, probably under shelter, with running water. You may be with roommates or your friends, but you are not with anyone trying to manipulate you and then kicking you off the island. Oh right, there is the chance of winning a million dollars, but most would think buying a lotto ticket or betting on Miami would be a more comfortable idea.
3. Cell Block 6: Female Lockout:
The main reason this show will make you feel good about your life is not because these women are in jail, but simply because they have the worst hair ever. EVER. But beyond the obvious hair issues, this show will make you feel good about your life because you are not in prison. You are not kept in an uncomfortable living space for an extended period of time with crazies. Unless you’re in first year and live in Saugeen, then you kinda are. Sorry, babe.
4. Half Ton Man:
Actually?! How can anyone let themselves go this much?! Like this guy could lose half his body weight and still weigh FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS. WHAT?!?! Okay, so because you don’t weight a ton, nor even half this man’s body weight, you should feel good about your life.
5. 16 and Pregnant:
Not only are you not pregnant (if you are, RIP your JBR’s Wednesdays) but you’re not 16 either. Remember being 16? Remember high school? Yeah, let’s stick to being in university. And then you have to watch all these teenagers deal with their parents, who obviously did not think little Sally-Mae would be having sex, let alone be with child before marriage. This is always fun. I love watching middle America family drama. More addictive than Spoke bagels.
Bonus Advice: Turn to TLC
Actually, the most interesting shows that will make you feel like you and your family are the most normal people ever. Ever.
