    I was mooning over Brook Nevin's IMBD listing when I found something unfamiliar...

    Imaginary Bitches.

    13 episodes...

    Skinny.

    13 webisodes.

    To cope with the horror of a single life, Eden creates a pair of imaginary friends to console her, who are really mean.

    Disgustingly mean and tactically offensive.

    Hilarious.

    They're not real.

    You just got the lead actress ranting at empty spaces, as her real life non imaginary friends roll their eyes and become even more worried.

    Superb.

    So... d'ya think maybe this is where Clint Eastwood got the idea for his brilliant Republican Convention schtick?

    Is it just me, or is this thread title the ultimate Guy title?

    You can retire in honor now.

    It's the name of the show.

    The only brave thing I did was to not censor it.

    I was thinking the same thing and was slightly disappointed to see it was actually the title of the webseries. :lol:

    I just saw Saturday Night Live make fun of Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair.

    Even Seth McFarlane hosting can't make that show funny.

    ...

    They're webisodes.

    Free on youtube.

    Never a commercial venture.

    Not stealing.

    5 to 7 minutes each.

    Less than an hour to watch the lot.

    And I supplied the complete youtube catalogue.

    Emmy Award winning Webisodes at that.

    No one's bitten?

    I took a look at the "pilot". Cute girl, but I've only ever seen a cute girl act that awkward on TV. So maybe if they're angling for careers in TV they're doing a great job, but it wasn't compelling enough to make me watch more. (Also, the episodes ain't HD, unlike Louie via Netflix.)

    Thank you, now I feel validated, but yes very much made for neurotic 20 year olds with hips.

    Is it, though? Do young women really enjoy seeing ditzy caricatures of modern gals, or is it rather the work of gaggles of old white male execs who, in a subconscious effort to atone for keeping their female peers from reaching the very top, seek to convince themselves that all cute gals are as bubbly and meek as Pretty Woman-era Julia Roberts?

    Or maybe young women actually do like comparing themselves favorably to such cartoons, thus perpetuating the gimmickry?

    I really don't quite know.

    I watched the first episode. Interesting.

    I think the lead actress was on All My Children. I'm pretty sure she played Erica's daughter.

    Anyway, I will probably find the time to finish this.

    I saw that episode. It was dreadful. The "ad" about Romney and Bain going out of their way to ruin that one guy's life was pretty funny though.

    Good series. I watched one, and I'll probably watch the others.

    Sex and the city and Ally McBeal made a lot of money.
