So tonight is the big “Impractical Jokers” premiere. I remember being super excited to watch the last one to see what it would be like without Joe. I am not a cable subscriber, so I had to sign up with a streaming service that offered access to the channel just to watch a single new show at the release time. There were no promotions or anything, either.
That little subscription payment is quite an investment for those of us who don’t have mounds of cash at our disposal. It was a lot, but I liked the show enough to sign up and see what they would do with the new situation.
I wasn’t thrilled with the episode, but I decided I’d watch the next one to see if the first one was a fluke.
I spent four hours writing an optimized (believe me, I didn’t want to do all that) and honest review of the first episode of the new “Impractical Jokers” show as a long-term fan.
I then got ripped to shreds, accused of spamming and campaigning for money (where???), and dissed by Reddit users for sharing my blog post. After that, I tried to stick with the IJ community and interact with the other fans, but the experience wasn’t good. I ended up leaving and saying, “To hell with it.”
Well, June has rolled around, and I’m going to pass on the “Impractical Jokers” new show tonight. I’ll see it eventually if it becomes available via the streaming service provider I normally use. Other than that, I’m not going to bother with it.
Maybe I’ll write a quick and very late piece on it whenever I see it. Perhaps I won’t. Whatevs. Some experiences kill the joy we have in certain things.
