Mixology

Instead of studying (oops), I took a break for a bit and watched the Bachelor. What followed was ABC's new show, Mixology. The shows description is as follows:

"One bar. One night. Ten single people. Welcome to Mix, a high-end bar in Manhattan's trendy meat-packing district and the backdrop for a sexy new high-concept comedy from the writers of The Hangover."

Ten seconds in, and I'm already overwhelmed by the sexist, racist, and appallingly offensive writing. The characters are cheap, the jokes fall flat. The show itself feels as seedy as the bar it's set in.

Just to give you a feel for the show, here's my favorite quote.

"The higher the heel, the looser she'll feel."

Other choice moments include rating women by their asses, rape jokes, the exclusivity of being  "real man" and a "nice guy",  making fun of a man crying for being a pussy, a blonde sleeping with a guy who can't remember her name because what the hell, he's hot.

I don't have anything else to say. I'm fuming. This show can't possibly last, can it?
