Welcome to Myrtle Manor

So... we've seen the ads for the series and I've read about the first 10 episodes - and I still can't make up my mind whether I'm intrigued or aghast.

Anyone ever been to the actual trailer park - and would it be a good place for a rally? Patrick mobile home park apparently really has all of those old trailers. It might be fun... and if not it's hitch up and go!

I posted about the Myrtle Manor show on fb but not on here... I wasn't sure what this group would think about "reality-show trash in vintage trailers."

I set the first episode to record and I'll evaluate from there.

My Review of Myrtle Manor Show



Makes Honey Boo Boo look intelligent.

Oh, I forgot about this thread while I was trying to forget about the awful show. I'm not sure if I can go quite as far as saying this (or anything) makes Here Comes Honey Boo Boo seem intelligent, I can certainly agree that Myrtle Manor is no better. It's not even a good train wreck, it has more of the totally-staged feel of one of the repo shows. Ah, well, more room on the DVR for my car-geek and science-geek shows.

You just have to look at it as fiction. Think Gilligan's Island or The Beverly Hillbillies. Then it is just a funny show. ;-)
And come on, a Myrtle Manor decal would look sweet on a vintage trailer!

Hmmm... Gilligan's Island with drunks and tattoos. Sounds about right.

And yeah, the logo is the best thing about show. That and the Airstream near the pool that, at least in the first 2 episodes (all I could stand to watch) is only shown in panning shots.

I don't watch shows like that, but i saw ads for it and decided to google it after reading this discussion. It seems you can get t shirts with airstream looking trailers on them.
They also have decals and other stuff.

Brain rot, like 90% of the rest of TV today.

They take off shows like Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs, those that might inspire a thought or honor hard working folks and replace them with mindless crap.

Thanks for the rant,


JD
