Guilty pleasures??

I am watching a LifeTime movie right now. Called Desire and Deception. Paul calls such things cheetos entertainment and that about sums it up. Fake cheetos, even. This one is so very bad that I am laughing. In the first ten minutes there were three love scenes, and now, about five minutes later, yet another. In each one they go at it "like rabbits", as they say, thin women with enhanced breasts, men who are older by at least fifteen years (or had fewer face lifts?). The scenes verge on soft porn. Maybe not "verge", but are. I think they all could exchange heads and nobody would know the difference.

I can imagine the composer of this fine music sitting at his keyboard, tapping it out, horns here, a little rhythm...ease off here...

The writing! Unreal, it's so bad. And the delivery, even worse. I can see a first-year acting class trying this and doing it better. In between howls of laughter.

I don't normally watch these things when Paul is around. I don't want him getting the idea that I find this stuff titillating. It's more that the simplicity of it all provides relief from my usual fare. Although the truth is that I find it hard to focus on a lot of television. Always thinking of other things.
