Red pill CBS TV show
Unthinkable, I know, but it seems Roosh's predictions of crime-think entering the mainstream are indeed coming to pass. I just saw the pilot of "We Are Men", expecting nothing more than the usual drivel we all know entirely too well, and was pleasantly shocked. Worth a watch.

So, any bets on how long it'll take to either kill or neuter it? $50 says it doesn't finish one season.

I think the show will end up pretty decent for the 1st and possibly 2nd season.
Then they'll start to add in a love interest and her friends to bring women into the show and it'll be all downhill from there.

Watched the trailer, actually looks good. I like how the introductory trailer introduces all the (male) characters by how some whore screwed them over. Can’t wait to hear the denunciations.

I'm sure a season or two in it will go beta. But as long as there are no major female characters, it will have a fighting chance.

As stated earlier the show is off to a good start. They showed broads to be fickle soul stealing harpies if they are left unchecked, and how much fun men can have if they put their happiness first.

Vinman, not to mention how much fun men can have by putting other men first socially. This is how Entourage became successful too. Workaholics, same deal. First season the guys were tight, but it unraveled after that.

I may just be delirious with heady optimism, but in pimp-Monk's daughter I detected the scent of of a positive (that is, neither femcuntish nor porcine) female character. That could be a good thing on its own, contrasting with the mainstream and reminding everyone of the way it ought to be.

Unless they fuck it up.

RE: Red pill CBS TV show
Got to say I watched the pilot online after reading this thread, and I was very surprised by how red pill this show is, especially considering it's on network TV on CBS which usually has extremely lame blue pill shows like "Mike and Molly."

It's almost as if the creators have been reading this forum, there is so much red pill it's not even funny, 3 of the 4 main characters are guys who have been put through the ringer by women through divorce, and preach against the ills of marriage, and the benefits of being a single man with the freedom to slay. Not only are the guys against marriage, but they advocate sexing up much younger women, and enjoying sexual relationships more than long term romantic ones.

The "new guy" who gets left by his wife at the alter is the quintessential "blue pill" LTR guy who still wants to get back with his ex even though she ran away with a supposedly more alpha ex lover who bursts in at the ceremony. The older crew of red pill guys led by Tony Shaloub (Monk), try to take him under their wing and school him to the ways of the red pill. This is precisely the kind of shit we talk about and deal with here on the forum.

I like the whole dynamic and concept of the show, the pilot was well written, and even had a few laugh out loud moments, like when the blue pill guy "Carter" asks Tony Shaloub's character... "are you really going to find a meaningful relationship with a random 25 year old you meet at Jamba Juice..." and Tony Shaloub pauses and asks, "is she Asian?"

So far I got Roosh pegged as Tony Shaloub character, the older successful Middle Eastern guy who is an old school Casanova who knows the game and pulls hot waay younger girls, and Lothario as Kal Penn (Kumar from Harold and Kumar), the married family man who gets caught cheating on his wife. I'm not sure who Jerry O'Connell's character is maybe Slubu or BasilRansom, and no one I can think of is blue pill enough from the forum to liken to the Carter character.

Anyhow I think the show has a lot of potential, usually the pilot sucks on a new series and the subsequent episodes get much better, I hope that's the case with this show, the pilot was good IMO, so if it only get's better than the show will be great. I recommend it to the playboys on here to check out. I still need to watch Don Jon, but with that movie in theaters and this show on TV, hopefully the tides will start to change and more red pill will go mainstream. As a final note, I thought it classic that all the comments I read on the CBS site were all negative from women, saying the shot was horrible, while all the men thought it was great. Fuck those brainwashed feminists, lets shove the red pill down their throats.

Old dude's character looks like he's going to be hilarious. When does this show air?

Monday at 8:30 I believe, if I'm not mistaken there has only been the one pilot episode that has aired so far.

Safe bet, sadly. The ratings of its debut were, quote, "the network's lowest-rated in-season comedy debut ever". Not the best start...

Also, its lead-in is How I Met Your Mother, which... just strikes me as not the best lead-in.

RE: Red pill CBS TV show
A show focused towards men does bad ratings? I wonder why, could it be that they run it up against Monday Night Football? It's like they want it to fail.

And as we foresaw it's officially cancelled, after 2 episodes.

http://variety.com/2013/tv/news/cbs-canc...200709788/

Its ratings weren't the worst for a new CBS show, not even the worst for a CBS show on Monday night, but they set it up to fail and succeeded in that regard. Better luck with the red pill comedy next time, I guess...
