Shit My Dad Says

Postby Fievel on Mon Jun 21, 2010 6:54 pm

I didn't find a thread on this..
So there's a TV show coming out that's based off of a Twitter account called Shit My Dad Says. I have a feeling the show is going to fail, simply because it's on Network TV and not cable.
I mean... the title of the Twitter account is called Shit My Dad Says fer cryin' out loud! But the Twitter account... is possibly the funniest shit I've ever read.

Here is the Twitter account

Here's a clip from the pilot starring William Shatner

I love Shatner but I think he's severly miscast here. If Kurtwood Smith hadn't played essentially the same character in That 70's Show, I'd say he'd be perfect instead.

So what's so funny about it? If you haven't read the Twitter page, here's a sampling:

-"Can we talk later? The news is on... Well, if you have tuberculosis it's not gonna get any worse in the next 30 minutes, jesus."

-"Been thinking for a while, and I'd say there's 1.5 pounds of shit in the dog. Tried to get the vet to weigh a sack of it. No dice."

-"Engagement rings are pointless. Indians gave cows...Oh sorry, congrats on proposing. We good now? Can I finish my indian story?"

-"They're offended? Fuck, shit, asshole, shitfuck; they're just words...Fine. Shitfuck isn't a word, but you get my point."

-“You seen my cell phone?...What’s it look like? Like two horses fucking. It’s a phone, son. It looks like a phone."

-"Waking up when you got a baby, you feel like you drank a bottle of whiskey the night before, except the shit's in someone else's pants."

-"I found some shit in your room...No, I found actual shit. Feces...Well I should hope it's from your shoes, otherwise what the fuck?"

This is the funniest shit I've read in a long time. I think I'm going to have to go to Twitter for the first time now.

It says Shatner's supposed to star in this, but I picture someone like Abe Vigoda or something when I read this.

Don't know what to think of it. The shit his dad says isn't that funny, I got no idea how to make a weekly sitcom out of it that does not reek like an "Everybody Loves Raymond" rip-off, but on the other hand gained William Shatner some seriously spot on comedic timing during the last 10 years or so and Nicole Sullivan is in it, who always makes me laugh.

I don't think the actual "shit my dad says" is going to be anything like the tv version (besides the obvious cursing not being present). They are using the concept of a cantankerous old guy yelling at his grown up son all day long blah blah blah. Boring? Yes, boring as hell

Like I said: Everybody loves Raymond. (Of course I'm talking about Peter Boyle as the Dad, not Raymond.)

Didn't they also do that with Sanford and Son? It's a long time ago so I might not remember right ...

Sanford and his Son - Big Dummy! You could also say the same in All In The Family with Carrol O'Connor's character and his son-in-law Meathead.

But screw the TV show. It's going to fail. I just love the actual Tweet posts.
