What do you think of GCB? I've watched twice now, and I haven't figured out if I like it or not.
I used to live in Plano, where this is set. I've known some of these characters. The rich bitches, the cattiness, the big hair, the focus on appearance and money, the secretly gay cowboys, the high school cheerleaders that get breast implants over summer, the assumption that EVERYone is Christian, the use of church to further one's own ambitions, the shopping excursions at Neiman's, the society luncheons - I've lived this (not that I participated - I was probably considered a not-wealthy, geeky javelina with glasses). It's all familiar.
And parts are really funny to me.
But I guess I don't find people being mean to each other entertaining. It's like they never outgrew high school.
(Maybe that's why I moved AWAY from Plano?)
By the way, when I lived in Plano, that little city had both the highest per-capita heroin use in the nation, AND the highest teen suicide rate in the nation. Too much money, too much time, and too little parental supervision.
So, what's YOUR take on GCB?
