Hi Frank-
"Yet no one who works there, nor anyone they know, nor anyone they have ever actually met in person, would ever in a million years admit to having watched the show."

Come on Frank, we're not the white belt hipsters sneering over our faux Buddy Holly glasses at low-brow US entertainment that you apparently think we are.

As an update, we're still trying to clarify what the situation is with AI and the DKs. The second e-mail Jello wrote out for me to send (for your readers, I work @ Alternative Tentacles) is the latest info. I'm currently trying to download a better copy of the show to review from other e-mail correspondents.

I've already watched a so-so copy of the Vegas AI sent by a recipient of the e-mail. We're not taking the "oh we're too cool" approach to the thing. Dive in, that's what I say. Awful show though. Really structured, incredibly bad performances, and only a few decent voices among the 'good' performances. Any contempt I have for the show is because, well, it's fucking awful. Pap is too nice a word for it. I like a lotta crap (examples: Tom Clancy and Steven King novels, Magnum PI, Miami Vice, Crime Story tv shows), but this stuff is too much for me.

Adios, Jesse "I watch AI so you don't have to" Luscious
