How the FRAK did THAT get made?

Did you ever wonder that?

It's 2 AM here and as per usual there's nothing but junk and re-re-re-runs on TV, I surfed the couple of channels I have and found something called "2 Broke Girl$". My first thought was: "How the FRAK did THAT get made?"

And while ^that was the inspiration for this post, it's not just media I'm talking about...

My town is (like any other place in the western world) in dire need of parking space near city center... Town decides to build a great big (for the size of the town anyways) shopping center (I suppose you'd call it something like a 'mini-mall') on the only available lot -just on the periphery of the city center-pedestrian area. -The place has been empty since they build it and now resembles a ruin (I'll see if I can get a photo of it tomorrow when I'm in the vicinity). -Needless to say; no-one here hasn't been wondering "How the FRAK did THAT get made?"

What makes you think (or even say out loud): "How the FRAK did THAT get made?"

Re: How the FRAK did THAT get made?

I was flipping through movies available in a hotel room recently and came across this movie description:

Beaver: A troubled husband and executive adopts a beaver hand puppet as his sole means of communicating. Starring Mel Gibson.

Just about died laughing.

^That's what I'm talking about.

Although... descriptions like that are a whole other category of funny in themselves...

2 Broke Girls is actually a pretty funny, well-written sitcom.

That stars the lovely Kat Denning.


As to the OP, there is so much drivel on TV that makes me want to ask that question. Jersey Shore, anyone?

As far as descriptions go, DISH network's listing for Tremors is always: "Four big worms with multiple tongues dig high-speed around people in the middle of nowhere.

They could use the same thing for the sequels though, right?

Not always, but in many cases the answer to the OP’s query can be summed up by the acronym ISLAGIATT.

How else do you explain Xanadu?

Thank you for that reasoning. Also, thank celebrities for their continued stupidity regarding nekkid photos from their cellphones. I must concur that Ms. Denning is very gifted. Talented, not so much though.

I don't know, I thought she was actually pretty good in Charlie Bartlett and she nailed her part perfectly in Thor.

Re: How the FRAK did THAT get made?

Along the same lines as the OP, we had a new outdoor amphitheater that was first used last year, where I got to see Melissa Etheridge perform. It was previously a smaller amphitheatre, but the new one was finished last year. There's also a music festival that uses the park every year, but here's the thing. The city waited until it was built to say that they'd need more room to take into account the beer tent and that they'd have to rebuild it.

Why wasn't this in the original plans??

Re: How the FRAK did THAT get made?

All the infomercial shit. SyFy, even all these years later...still resorts to showing infomercials in the wee hours of the morn.

Enough people still buy enough of that crap for them to be viable? I mean, they seem so 90's at this point. Like the home shopping network...there's that many people who think that stuff is good or just hate to leave home to shop for useless junk?

Must still be big..

Why home shopping is successful
Many local cable companies host televised retailers, but the frontrunners are QVC (Quality, Value, Convenience) and HSN (Home Shopping Network). Big or small, though, the formats are the same: Hosts present products from specific companies, such as Philosophy skin-care items and Dell computers, or focus on a category of items, such as handbags and cookware, from various lines. Company representatives -- who are sometimes top-tier celebrities and designers -- are present to answer questions. A few lucky customers even make it on air to chat with them. This brush with fame spurs excitement.

I liked her even before I knew she had nude pics online (your post is the first I heard of them).

I finally watched the infamous Fantastic 4 movie from 1994...it's tremendously horrible..and Battlefield Earth...how does THAT get made but not Foundation, or Hyperion, or Uplift?
