Why would you judge the entire worth of the series based on a promo graphic?

The point of this thread is to see people's first impressions as to whether the show might be fake or real based on the image. That's it.

If the show is fake, how good of a first impression does it make? Fake shows have to be pretty bad considering how bad so many real one are.

Think back on shows that SHOULD HAVE been fake, but were real, based on title alone.

My Mother the Car.
Cop Rock.

Got any more?

It stands for carp.

The fish.

They explained in one of the episodes that all the stations in town got named for animals "back in the day", which is why one of the other stations was WPIG.

The first had Ann Sothern, so that automatically makes it good.

I didn't get around to being able to see Cop Rock until it syndicated on A&E (back when they showed stuff worth watching), so I got to see it back to back to back, and was annoyed that there weren't more episodes.

You must have missed the episode where they explained it stood for carp. The fish.

Anybody who ever worked in small to medium market radio can tell you that that show was a lot closer to reality than most of the "reality" shows these days.

I did this last year with Revenge. The main promo shot was terrible IMHO. I wanted to hate the show. A friend forced me to watch it and it was my favorite show from last season.
