I just read an article on Reality Nation today, written by my lady friend Spicy, and it was a R.I.P. message for The Glass House. Now I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve wondered more than once if there’d ever be a second season, even though ABC had “hinted” about a renewal. So after reading Spicy’s take on the death of the show I’m a little disappointed. It’s not that I was planning to watch a second season considering I never watched, in entirety, it’s first.
I have, however, invested enough in The Glass House by way of blogging my cast assessment and even writing up my verdict on the first episode. So I’m going to close this sad tale with a tale of my own, in tribute to Watty Piper’s “The Little Engine That Could” (1930).
The Little ABC Engine that Could Not
~ an excerpt
…“I’m no Big Brother,” said The Glass House to the ABC executives. “I’m just a quick-fix copycat version of what Big Brother is. I’ll never make it past the first episode.”
“But we must do something with all these ex-Big Brother production people we hired. Besides, the Legal department told us CBS will never follow through with their lawsuit. We’re good to go! Do it for America! You must,” said the ABC execs.
The Glass House saw tears in the greedy old executive’s eyes and thought of the American television viewing audience waiting for a great new reality television game show.
“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.” And magically, The Glass House had its cast.
“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.” And The Glass House had free limited live feeds and a whole bunch of weirdos in the cast, enough to gain many fans.
“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.” And The Glass House got a “maybe” 8-ball answer from ABC execs about a second season.
“I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.”
NO. You could not, The Glass House, sorry.
With all that said, I’m still a big fan of Gene and Jeffrey.
They’ve hit the reality event circuit pretty hard post-show, but I’m not going to judge them. Not here anyway. They seem to be having fun with their reality television fame without ending up on TMZ with a taser to their taints so…
Speaking of taints…
BE THE SUN!
She was a huge disappointment on the show, and post-show as well. Twitter fights are all different shapes and sizes, and the one she picked with me was the shape and size of pathetic.
She’s a Barbie girl in a Barbie world, except swap “Barbie” out with “Vapid”.
BE THE SUN!
For research-sake I did check the Twitter and Facebook pages for The Glass House and they were not looking good. In fact, the last few comments on the last Facebook post were S P A M.
I spared you the entire vagina. You’re welcome. Or I’m sorry? Whichever applies.
Oh, and Someone at ABC should probably clean that Facebook page up, even if they’ve clearly cut the pursestrings. The Glass Houskeeping needs to be called.
