The Lyrics

Part of my "Living The Fantasy" self-challenge. Sometimes TV shows forget they have an ongoing plot and drag their heels for half and hour in inane shenanigans. This is the tale of one poor schmucks experience with it...
Watchin' TV and it's dire
'Cause the plot's been put on hold for filler
Kinda hard not to notice
When you're a giant dork, oh my
Through the whole e-e-ep, I am moanin'
Because it's just wastin' time
It can't pass as "okay"
It's just crap and I'll tell you why

'Cause ev'ry character's bland and they've lost sight of their goal
The one the whole series has been aimin' for
Find the macguffin? Screw that
We've got wacky hijinks, dude!
Did the writers smoke bo-o-ongs?

'Cause this is really stupid no-ow
This crap's more padded than my teddy bear, geez
The writers pulled this out of their a-arse
To meet deadlines, what a lo-o-oad
Tryin' not to have a co-ow
But it's kinda tricky since the TV's
Spewin' crap so much that my face is stuck on "fro-own"
Now they're all singin' a so-o-ong?

This episode's filler (oh-oh)
Hate filler, always gets to m-e (oh-oh)
The lightbulb couldn't get dimmer (oh-oh)
Over the writer's heads, no more, plea-ease (oh-oh)
And all the dialogue's bollocks
And the "awkward hidden secret" stuff is dumb
I'm so pissed off at filler (oh-oh)
Only one ep of paddin', plea-ease, no more paddin', plea-ease

The next day it's unbelievable
Writers are just askin' to be strangled
This ep's worse than the last, 'cause
It's filled with bullshit retcon li-ies
Ooh, the main hero's eatin' mangoes
He's allergic to them, that one I know
And did he forget how to use his bloody kni-ife?

I facepalm with both my hands and then I let out a groan
It seems the characterisation's devolved
Plot's goin' nowhere and fast
The main villain's missin' too
This is six kinds of wro-o-ong

I'm really disappointed no-ow
There's no development of characters, see-ee
The dialogue is soundin' real o-off
Actin' like they're five years o-o-old
Hope the writers don't feel prou-oud
'Cause it's really stupid and too cheesy
And it's a two parter, are you kiddin' me no-ow?
Why would you let this drag o-o-on?

Nobody likes filler (oh-oh)
When it's obvious as this, gee-eez (oh-oh)
It's plain to see it's a stinker (oh-oh)
Could've been subtle, think next time, please (oh-oh)
Could've developed the subplots
Have the main guy get mature-er, or some crud
Somethin' smarter than filler (oh-oh)
This filler's blatant paddin', gee-eez, no more paddin', plea-ease

Story arc, I cannot see-ee, oh
Goodbye continuity, oh-ooh
Each followin' ep sucks more, oh gee-eez
That I can't belie-ieve
The plot has lost all it's stea-eam

Why am I still watchin' this no-ow?
Think I've made my case clear: this is shit to me
So why don't I turn the TV o-off?
There's no story being to-old (no-o-o-o-ooo)
So should I throw in the to-owel (this show's now shitty)
Should I keep watchin', choice ain't easy
'Cause it's fascinatin' how the plot's been thrown ou-out
Is it so bad, it's aweso-o-o-ome?

It's still crappy filler (oh-oh)
But I'm not averse to some chee-eese (oh-oh)
The plot isn't gettin' thicker (oh-oh)
Could make a drinkin' game out of thee-ee (oh-oh)
Looked up the next ep's synopsis
Seems the plot gets back on track in the next one
So I'll ride out the filler (oh-oh)
The plot god's have listened to me-e, so bring on the cheese

Ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah (oh-oh)
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah (oh-oh)
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah (oh-oh)
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Ooh-ooh-ooooooooooh-oooooooh-oh-oh-oh (oh-oh)
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Maybe, maybe this will be alright
Though the, though the filler is still shite
(Not quite, not quite panic-worthy, right
Not worth, not worth screaming "writers die!")
(The show, the show will turn out alright
No need, no need to break down and cry)
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah
(Jumped to, jumped to conclusions, alright?
No fear, no fear, show won't drain my life)
(Should have, should have looked it up first, right
Over-, overeacted, oh my)

Now I will admit my first reaction was wrong
Leapt to that badly-informed conclusion like a nerdy frog
Shoulda had more faith i-in the writin' team, I'm such a two-onk
When will the next-next-next-next-next ep air, how long
Not gonna download, not a

(Not a, not a thief, that much is right
Won't watch, won't watch this cool show online)
(Half the, half the fun's watchin' it live
Won't judge, won't judge those who watch online)
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah
(Might not, might not have good cable, right
Could be, could be, don't matter, it's fine)
(Point is, point is this show ain't as shite
As I, as I figured it was, right)

So my television, it is always tuned
To the channel, that the show airs on dude
I won't be skippin', any ep, I'd be blue
If I missed it, though that would be a fluke

(Must watch, must watch this show ev'ry night
Even, even though the filler's shite)
(It's bad, it's bad in a good way, right
I laugh, I laugh at the awful site)
Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-aaaaaaaaah-ah-ah-ah
(When the, when the plot is written right
So great, so great, best I've seen in life)
(But when, but when filler is in site
Good lord, good lord, it's a lump of shite)
(Next ep, next ep, can't wait one more night
I won't, I won't dowload it online)
Hope that, hope that wiki didn't lie
And just, and just the filler is shite
If not, if not, I won't drop and cry
There are, there are more shows than that, right
It's not, it's not really a bad plight
It's just, it's just first world problems, right

Holy balls this is a long song. Still, only four left until I complete the main part of the "Living The Fantasy" self-challenge! Two rap songs and two hopefully-piss-easy songs. Balance!
