Television is awesome. There are shows about everything you could ever want to watch. However, the best kind of shows are the ones you imagine to be applicable to your life.
“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”
Don’t lie. You’ve discussed owning a bar with your friends. “Always Sunny” is pretty much exactly what would happen if you and your friends were to open a bar. It would fail miserably. It would be in some shitty location and then you’d have to find idiotic ways to try to get people to come to your bar. Even if you don’t aspire to own a bar someday–in which case, you suck–your life can still resemble the crew of “Always Sunny”. Chances are you’ve come up with some ridiculous story to get laid, most of the time failing miserably. People will probably end up hating you for your shenanigans, but you could care less.
You know you’re not an international spy. You also know your life isn’t as cool as Mr. Sterling Archer’s. However, you might have more in common with him than you think. For starters, you’re probably more likely to be able to count the number of days you haven’t had a drink than the days you have. Instead of fighting a hangover, you usually decide to go straight back into drinking, trying to delay ever getting a hangover. You also may have your own personal Pam as well. Sure, you may not actually want to look at, and you sure as hell don’t want people finding out about her, but she gets the job done if you’re being lazy. For the record, people are probably going to find out, too, so you can either own it or you can just find a new Pam. And plus, most of you degenerates would probably treat Woodhouse exactly how Archer treats him.
Most of you have probably played in a fantasy league of some sort. If not, you can definitely identify with talking shit to your friends. If you haven’t told your friends that they are “shit-sipping frittatas” or that if you win, you get to sleep with one of their sisters, you’re doing it wrong. You have the one person who tries to run everything, but there’s no chance of it going smoothly because you’re going to find something to whine and bitch about. You know your friends are the biggest assholes in the world, but none of the things they say surprise you at this point.
“Sons of Anarchy”
You will go through some really crazy shit with your friends. They will piss you off. If your friends don’t piss you off at some point in your life, they aren’t really your friends. I doubt you’ll have to face a situation where you have to burn a tattoo off of some guy’s back (if you do, you’re a sick and twisted individual) but you will create all sorts of weird and crazy memories with your friends. As much as they piss you off, you would do anything for them if the situation called for it–except for that tranny. Even you have some standards.
