Love to Interrupt
The DiGeorge Files
A more-than-intentional homage to
"Pardon the Interruption" among others, We Love to Interrupt
is an original, raw, frank, red-blooded, two-fisted,
full-bodied look into the world of game shows through the eyes
of two discerning fans with high standards and short fuses.

Gordon: This is Gordon Pepper - and we're being
invaded by summer shows! AHHHHH!!!!
Chico: And balls! Lots and lots of balls. I'm
Chico Alexander, and from somewhere in America, WLTI is
Gordon: Extreme Dodgeballs, to be exact - but
before we get to the balls, we'll get to the nuts... in
the house. Last Comic Standing. Are the right comics in
the house? Or, as Drew Carey so eloquently says, do you
call bull (bleep)?
Chico: I call bull (bleep) from the start. What's
up with the ringers, anyway? I'd rather see what happens
when regular people are up against regular people. But
then again, the public is buying it, so I guess I'm in
the minority here.
Gordon: From what I was told, the field was so
piss-poor in the first season that they decided to widen
the field. Of course, that opened it up to nepotism
supreme, like when Jay tells the contestants that he's
seen them all over the place. But will someone explain
to me why we are so bent on personality over
entertainment that Todd Glass and Bonnie McFarlane get
into the house while Dan Natureman and Jim Wiggins are
Chico: Tell ya... because they make for good
Gordon: Does it? It didn't make good television
on Tuesday. Funny comics make good television. Whining
ones that grate on people's nerves don't. Did we forget
so quickly why Dat Phan, the most untalented comedian in
the group, won?
Chico: So you're calling Drew's BS right now.
Gordon: I agree with Drew and Brett. It felt like
three of the comics were getting in just because they
were annoying and guaranteed to create drama in the
house - like the aforementioned Glass, ANT and Jay
London. I'll give both ANT and London their props, but
Wiggins and Natureman should be there in their place.
Chico: One person who does not agree with you..
or ME for that matter... Of course, Jay Mohr. He says
the judges wishes are paramount. How can you dispute
that... I'll tell you. With my eyes closed, one hand
behind my back, and hopping on one foot.
Gordon: Well, he's the producer - he created the
nepotism and helped to handpick the people in the house,
so I can understand that - but sorry, if your prized
pony breaks a leg in Vegas, you don't dress him up for
the Kentucky Derby.
Chico: True. But again, everyone's watching it.
Instead of the more legit Next Action Star.
Gordon: And I honestly think that they didn't
tell Drew or Brett that they could be overruled. Todd
Glass' comedy career was broken in Vegas, and it should
have been shot. I am actually enjoying Next Action Star
more than LCS2, and it's because they are being serious
with this. I do hate the editing of the show though, and
the advertising has been awful, to say the least
Chico: Also true. Has to be... really. I mean,
this is serious stuff here. You gotta love watching..
Then again, if a tree falls and all that. But still,
Gordon: I think this could have had an audience
if they plugged this better. Why did they make the
marketing on this so bad?
Chico: Probably no faith by the higher-ups at
Gordon: Too bad - the show is better than that
Chico: I happen to agree. Maybe the finished
product will be better than the people give it credit
for. The rest of the show already is.
Gordon: Speaking about shows that are better than
given credit for... Outback Jack.
Chico: I like this.
Gordon: Now THIS is what Joe Millionaire should have
Chico: Take sixteen urban princesses and give
them a dose of hard karma. Gordon: And A minority
woman actually may have a chance to win the guy.
Chico: Throw JD Roberto in and you have an
instant ... yeah.
Gordon: Well, JD Roberto I wouldn't mind seeing
consumed by a bunch of wild prawn. But I'll even admit
that he is doing better in this than his past works.
Chico: Let's analyze. You Lie Like a Dog..
sucked. Are You Hot... sucked. Food Fight...
enjoyable except for him... Shop Til You Drop... goes
Gordon: So how do you think he fares here?
Chico: Not bad in moderation. If he can control
his urge to be on camera, this could be his Russian
Roulette, you know? It did wonders for Walberg.
Gordon: So we're saying that he's enjoyable here
like fruitcake is enjoyable during Christmas.
Chico: Exactly. And speaking of quiz shows...
Yeah, like we were really going to let this one slip
past unabated... Two words... Ken Jennings. If there a
man alive that can go three rounds against this guy?
Gordon: um....uhhhh....maybe if they change the
rules of the show - like the Daily Doubles are worth
Chico: Even with that... No chance. He's just
find them all. This guy is changing the game with three
rules... Big Board, if I may...
Gordon: You may.
Alrighty. 1) You have to know stuff. That just goes for
any quizzer. You're not going to get anywhere if you're
Gordon: True. 2. You have to be quick.
Chico: It's just one of the traditional game show
rules. Victory goes to the fastest. So you have a pen
here.... Gotta go clickety click click click.
Gordon: Let me add to this - You have to have
good reflexes. Ken has said that he spent hours timing
when Alex would end a question, so that he would time
the jump-in just right. If you need to beat Ken, you
need to out reflex him.
Chico: And finally, You have to know your limits.
You have $21,5... You're in the lead by more than half.
You're not going to be more than $8500. Ken just evens
it out at the nearest level. If he gets it right, good
for him. If he gets it wrong, no harm done. Follow those
three rules, and from then on out it's just lather,
rinse, repeat, until you yourself have your own dynasty.
Gordon: Thom McKee would be proud of you
Chico: As would Charles Van Doren.. minus the
whole rigging. Just remember, if any stewardesses named
Rachel call... Don't bother answering. She's just one of
two of the remaining five on For Love or Money: The Evil
Season, who is in it for the dollar she doesn't know she
Gordon: But will she bet her bottom dollar?
Chico: Not if she gets a chance to swap out. Then
she may bet even more.
Gordon: But we know what he feels about her - do
you think she feels the same way?
Chico: Short, unfulfilling Tom Bergeron answer...
nope. I quote last week, "I'm in it for the money. Money
money money." It's her and Andrea.. If I was the guy in
charge... PJ all the way.
Gordon: lol - sets up for FLOM4?
Chico: Doubtful, unless there's a six-month
cliffhanger. The sequel doesn't premiere until
Gordon: I guess not then. Love's labour lost.
Chico: Not totally. The fourth one could be as
good as the second.. or the third. I think that's a good
Gordon: Sounds good - I have Aldo available for
Chico: Sounds good.
Gordon: Then maybe Take a Side?
Chico: I take all challenges seriously.
Gordon: Good - because I'm up to seriously
Chico: You don't count. You're up to seriously
challenging anyone. Gordon comes to fight, he comes to
Gordon: That's true.
Chico: He's a big red rubber ball of
Gordon: Ask Bob Boden and the 110-18 thrashing I
gave him at last year's GSC.
Chico: Alright, going into break, an appeal to
you, the reader. One question: "What's your favorite MTV
game show?" Send your answers to:
