So according to the buzz Sharktopus pretty much owned the ratings for Saturday night cable viewing. But as I sat down to watch this little epic I was expecting some resistance.
You see the girl friend ain’t a geek. She tries. And God love her, she does a good job most of the time. But there are times when she just doesn’t get it. This was one of those Zen of Geek moments.
“What are you watching?”
“Sharktopus”
“That looks really stupid and bad. Why are you watching it?”
“Because it’s stupid and bad”
“Right. So WHY ARE WATCHING IT?”
“It’s stupid and bad.”
“Then why watch it?’
“Because, it’s stupid and bad. How difficult is that to understand?”
OK. Actually, that’s how it played out in my head. In reality, I waited until she went to sleep to watch it.
