Will “Trust Me” get cancelled? Let’s hope.

 

By / /

Has anyone out there actually sat through Trust Me long enough to feel your temples throb and your eyeballs ache? It doesn’t take long. The vacuous “drama” from TNT about advertising is once again about as true to life as Muppets In Space, but alas, nowhere near as enjoyable.

The characters are vapid and annoying, the plots are lame and the advertising produced in the show is dire. “Do Thumbthing?” Give us a f**king break!

Anyway, an article today on MediaBistro is suggesting that Trust Me is heading for the dumpster, and we won’t be losing any sleep over that one. In a world where Freaks And Geeks and Arrested Development get canceled, putrid drivel like this should be put out of its misery quickly. And to think, it was written by two former ad agency creatives. Guys, hang your heads in shame.

A clip, for those of you who hate yourselves, is below.
This show blows…Trust Us.

    this concept in the hands of anyone but F/X doesn’t work. if they took the same balls out approach as they do with nip/tuck, rescue me and the shield, this show would be fucked up enough to be entertaining.

    I like it. I don’t want to. But I do. In fact, I think I’ve seen every episode.

    Or instead of F/X, a premium movie network. Most ad agencies I’ve worked in sound like an episode of The Sopranos or Deadwood. Ya g*d da**m motherfu*kin c*cksuckers.

    I kind of like the “Will and Ed” show too. Sorry.

    @ Matt. I’m right there with you, and it confuses the hell out of me. Though I think casting McCormack was a bad call – just reminds me of how much I hated Will and Grace.

    COOL!

    Trust Me tries to be an Aaron-Sorkin-esque quick witted show about extremely creative and interesting people. It fails on all fronts.

    I wanted so badly to like it. Has anyone else noticed the strobe-light-like jumpcuts between characters when they’re having a conversation? It’s enough to induce seizures. Light dark light dark light dark oy my head.

    I think it lasted 4 episodes to long.

    Actually, it’s pretty good! … (compared to bullshit)
