I’m all about the Shatner. I believe the man is an icon. His performance on Boston Legal sets a standard few could ever hope to achieve. Unfortunately, not even the Shatner can save this giant, stinking pile of $#*!.
In case you missed it, this comedy is supposed to be based upon the often hilarious twitter feed of the same name, and the book, both by Justin Halpern. Some things simply do not translate.
This is one of those things.
William Shatner is the dad in question. The rest of the cast … who cares? With any luck, this thing will be gone before it can irreparably damage their careers. The Shatner will survive … the others may not.
My advice? Watch The Big Bang Theory but keep your remote close at hand so you can tune away the moment Shit … um … $#*! begins. They cancelled The New Adventures of Old Christine for this kind of shit?
$#*! My Dad Says airs Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.
