    I know, there's been too many polls, so no poll with this one... just an early prediction, based on the stupid (insipidly so) commercials for coming soon "new" FOX show: Free Ride.

    I'm setting the over-under at 3 shows aired before banished for good. And personally, I'd bet the under.

    I know that many here never see commercials, and barely watch "live tv" but I'm an impatient hold out. I watch a lot live because I can't be bothered to wait, and as such I see those horrid things called "commercials."

    The commercials for this apparent stinker are either doing the show a serious injustice, or are showing yet again that you can only do but so much to dress up an obvious t-u-r-d.

    I don't mean to be a hater, but I swear that FOX deserves a bazillion BIHs (Burn in Hells!) if they think that Free Ride is the kind of crap that should be airing instead of a quality show like Arrested Development (A.D.)


    I don't know how many will recall the show, but the vibe I'm getting from the ads for Free Ride is about a billion times worse than what I recall from The Princes of Malibu. I was more than willing to give that show a chance, and it wound up off the air after just a few airings. I don't expect Free Ride will even get that many.

    As we/they say, B-I-H FOX!

    In the future when in the midst of a six paragraph rant, could you provide a synopsis of the show or some information about what specifically the commercials portray?

    All I know about this show from your post is that it's called Free Ride and that they're promoting it via commercials.

    haha, but if you use your detective skills you will see he mentions "the princes of malibu" that was about 2 kids that take advantage of their absurdly rich step dad...and the title of this show is "free ride" so im assuming its the same show with diff. people

    About a kid that moves back in with his folks after college. His buddies that never left home are still around and are big losers. Hilarity fails to ensue.

    Thanks CB, as that pretty much says the same thing I was saying when I called it a t-u-r-d in the making, but hopefully provides enough to answer the queries above.

    Seriously, either the commercials are not doing the show justice, or it's a complete steaming pile.

    We'll find out once it airs an episode or perhaps two, but I expect we'll never see three... It looks (from the commercial clips) like it's that bad. Pathetically unfunny. Or as CB noted, hilarity fails to ensue.
