Wanette Wagoner-Bowlegs says hello
When TNT announced that they were doing a drama series set in Oklahoma City with a protagonist named Grace Anadarko, I feared for the worst, even though it stars Holly Hunter and I will watch Holly Hunter reading the classifieds in preference to a lot of other stuff, including a lot of other stuff on TNT.
Well, they've since hung an H on Grace's last name, making it look even sillier without reducing the sensation that they just pulled the name out of Google, and that's not even the half of it:
The one thing that gives me hope is the names of the characters:
You get the point. This appears to be the laziest group of writers in the history of Hollywood. They canít even come up with original names for the characters, so they just named them after towns in the state. And while this helps explain the ridiculous generalizations and furthers my fears that the show will be absolutely terrible, it also gives me hope that it will be canceled and forgotten very quickly.
At least they didn't have a Panhandle prostitute named, um, Betty Lou Hooker.Posted at 1:03 PM to Soonerland
