okay, I was waiting to see if I'd read a guy complain about seeing a girl in her panties. done.
yeah, real bummer on that one ... ???
I never said it was reality tv or real. I said the portrayal of memphis was true to form. i was only saying i liked watching it. dayum! haha ;)
my point about making up fake places and names still stands. for example your comment about the southern accents being out of place or overdone...are you going to cast a supposed memphis character with a bronx accent? would someone from memphis then be offended due to 'exploitation' or someone from the bronx? it is what it is. you don't have to like it. but i can thank them for the publicity it is bringing to this city and many of it's businesses, leagues, musicians, artists, etc. And all of the 'Flipside' videos aired in conjunction to $5 Cover aren't fiction; they are essentially mini documentaries.
I am with ya essentially. I swore I wasn't going to watch it, I did. But my friends that saw it told me how everyone was at all the places we hang out and everyone in it was people we know and everyone in it was wearing some kind of local business or band t shirt. as a marketing director myself, I got curious.
