You saved $7-$9 on a cheeseburger?  Goodness, how much do you spend when you eat fast food.  A half pound of hamburger meat would be what... $2, plus maybe $0.25 for the buns.  So your cost of this meal was roughly $2.25... so you're telling me that you spend $9.25-11.25 when you eat fast food?  That's like 2-3 value meals or 9-11 dollar menu items.

I just read a few pages, and unless I'm missing something I do not understand why so many here consider this enrapturing.  Tongue

You missed the earlier seasons. Those were the real classics. Summer of 2010 was too amazing for words.

Don't you get it?  This is Young and the Restless, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, the Bold and the Beautiful, As the World Turns, and Guiding Light all mixed together with a little Fear Factor sprinkled in!

You're a "liberal" now Jeff?  I think a more apt description might be "confused."  I would suggest just "growing up," but then I have a Peter Pan syndrome myself, so that would be "projecting," and that would be just so wrong, so I won't!  Smiley

Compared to my facebook friends, I am extremely liberal.  Compared to this forum, I'm a Bible-thumpin' Conservative.  So, our friend and fellow poster politicus, I am a "Bible-thumpin' Liberal".  I sigged it and made it my profile name.

You are that rare species: a Bible-thumpin' Liberal.

Nah, I love The Sims, but I can't micromanage Bushie's life.  Autonomy is on full Cry

This latest novel really isn't that good.  You have to already be a fan of the series to enjoy it.  I strongly suggest you start from the beginning to see its appeal.

This is almost it, except that Bushie frequently does not do as he is told. There is also the odd duality of a strong desire to help and to ridicule all rolled up into one. It's essentially an interactive exploitative reality show. With the right polishing, it could be the next big thing in broadcast entertainment. He could very easily be rich and famous. Except that this would defeat the looking for a job subplot, which is an integral part of the show. I suppose bigger plotholes have been ignored. And Bushie is generally EXTREMELY good natured about the ridicule side except for rare occassions which blow up into serious trouble. We all have our quirks in my life. I prefer to keep mine to myself, as I know I would not handle the criticism as well.
And as others have pointed out, this season has been awful. May be time to call it quits soon. I would hate for the Update to turn into the Simpsons.

There definitely should still be a Bushie movie some day, but we haven't yet reached the thrilling ending of this story yet.

That screenplay I wanted to write would've ended before the Dell job, and completely ignore the Kenya and moving to Utah arcs. That's kind of where it jumped the shark and just became the writers reusing plotlines. Granted it's still amusing to see Bushie get caught in his lies or ignoring obvious advice he needs to follow, that never gets old. I just hope the writers come up with an original curveball of some type.

Don't the days of everybody's life conclude in the same way? Or is it like Titanic or Lincoln where knowing the ending is not so much a spoiler. And I very much enjoyed the Kenya arc. Moving to Utah has been a disaster though. He needs to be among his own kind. I want to hear more about his church in Utah. Church and God have been the key component of this story from the beginning. Now they have been extremely marginalized and the quality is reflective.

I guess Kenya would be a good endpoint.

Whatever it is, I see this story has a great allegory about the perils of trying to pull yourself up by your own bootstrap.  Going back to the musical thread, it has the potential to be the American Les Mis, only with one main character.

I predict Scarface-esque ending.

If Matt Damon gained another 85lbs or so.. the stache is almost creepy enough for the role.

Yeah, proposing to a woman while on a date to IHOP would be more entertaining than this stuff.
