Has anyone seen this on Fine Living? Martha's daughter & her friend pretty much watch a Martha show & proceed to mock the hell out of her. It's kind of funny just because I know my friends & I would do the same thing when watching her show.
Example. S'mores. Martha proceeds to whittle birch branches & tie them up in pretty ribbon & also drills holes in them so she can hang them up. Meanwhile while all of this is going on you hear Alexis(her daughter) & her friend talking in the background. " Why Martha! We have to whittle in order to eat s'mores! Just take the damn marshmallow & shove it on a stick..your done! We have to whittle now?!"
I caught WM a couple of times this past week during a hospital stay. All I could think was, "Huh?!?"
I didn't find it remotely funny at all. I wouldn't even call Alexis and her friend "playfully snarky" because I detected a nasty streak underneath it all.
And MS actually approved this show???? *shakes head*
Reminds me of MST3k, which I've been a huge fan of for years. I think its hilarious they are going back and using the vintage shows -- i think from 1991 to 2004 for this. She was pretty anal and pretentious back then (seems like prison really loosened her up and brought out her sense of humor -- on her tv show at least) seems like there would be lots of room to have fun with it, especially since the project has her blessing.
I caught a You Tube video clip of this show. I enjoy the radio program these two gals have together because their comedy is usually very playful but I find this program just mocking cause they can. Even with Martha's blessing, as clever television programming "Whatever" just doesn't turn me on.
