There is a difference between creating a new television concept, and just plain stupidity. WE TV is going for stupidity instead of trying to change television for the better. This Friday, February 27th they have a new show premiering called Sex Box. While it might seem like some creative title for something that is not sex in a box, it is in fact just that. Sex. In. A. Box.
This is the point where I bang my head onto my desk and lament what Homo sapiens are producing. Really?! There is nothing better that we as a species can come up with?
Glenn took to radio to discuss this new "show," saying, "Can you hear, I hear, it's the hoofbeats of the four horses of the apocalypse. I hear them just off in the distance." While I might not hear the horses of the apocalypse, I completely agree that this is insane. Why is this show under the guise of "couples therapy" promoting sex on television? I just don't understand how a couple having sex in a box, putting on robes, and then discussing their problems with the three weirdos who were just listening to them go at it is going to solve anything.
Stu brought up the truly horrifying aspect of this, "Actually it seems like the real problem TV has with it is that it's not good. It's just boring. They have no problem with people having a bunch of sex in a box on television it's not just as enticing as we thought it would be."
To add fuel to the fire, they have a pastor on the show. As Glenn said, "I love the fact that they put a pastor on and they also said, we're changing lives. Like all of a sudden it's a mission." What pastor thought that this was a bright and responsible idea? Glenn had an answer for that, "The one who says this, if I don't do it, somebody will do it."
Listen to Glenn, Pat, and Stu mock the heck out of this waste of electricity show below:

That's pretty funny. That's a good line.
