Beauty & the Geek: I Watch It So You Don't Have To

As I've mentioned before, I occasionally help out my friends at Midseason Replacements by recapping shows no one else is covering.

Shockingly, no one else is covering Beauty & The Geek. We may presume that this is because I am one of six people in the country over the age of "college" who watches this show voluntarily.

The full recap is here. Some excerpts are below.


Beauty & The Geek is a show about making hot people look dumb and uncomfortable, and about making smart people also look dumb and uncomfortable. And then sometimes it also has sex. Win-win-win.

. . . . . . . . . . . .

You just can’t anticipate a velociraptor impersonation.

. . . . . . . . . . . .

It is at once horrifying and fascinating, because you really can’t tell who’s got more power. Social experiment, indeed! It is all so thought-provoking. Plus, hot chicks in a hot tub!

. . . . . . . . . . . .

Meanwhile, the girls are studying. There is some confusion about who Siegfried & Roy are. One model thinks they’re magicians, but Amanda puts an end to that: “No you guys. That’s psychology. Sigmund and Freud.”

  3. I'm glad i'm not the only one who's watching the classiest of shows.
    Is it sad that i'm disappointed with this season as compared with the previous three? Probably..

  4. They should do a hot guy - geeky chick version of this show. I can make a passable velociraptor noise.

  5. I used to have to brush my mom's hair while watching Fantasy Island. It was humiliating.

  6. I can't figure out why I stopped watching that show like 2 years ago. I used to love. I'll have to catch up on it.

  8. I don't know how I landed on this blog but I did, and laughed so hard at the last entry that I kind of choked and went red in the face and my boss is looking at me strangely. GENIUS!! You have a new reader!
