The Tori Episodes are really a creative drain, so I've got nothing today. Programming note, however, that tomorrow morning from 7-9, the Saved by the Bell Vegas Wedding movie will be shown in its entirety. At least DVR it? It's pretty awful, but it's so good.
The debate whether we're all laughing at or with R. Kelly is an interesting one. For Trapped in the Closet, the answer is clearly that he's in on the joke. SaH explains it all, and it's tough to argue. I've yet to see the new ones, but I agree that, while still enjoyable, the series did lose some focus after chapter 5 or 6 (once they became videos rather than just songs.) Whether or not we're laughing at him during songs like Real Talk (below) or Same Girl is another story. Trapped is it's own thing, but I can't believe he's turned his entire career into a satire, right? This is off of his latest album, "Double Up":
