As the television networks finalize their fall schedules by renewing or canceling the various series (hooray for Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, and Community getting pick ups), people have begun trying to forget some of the shows already consigned to the great scrap heap of tv history.
Are You There, Chelsea is just one of those shows. I can't explain why this show was so mediocre, except that it was painfully unfunny, which is sort of a bad thing if you're goal is to make people laugh.
Why am I bringing this up? Because it was one of the few TV shows in recent memories on prime time to feature fishing and tackle, albeit in the service of a devastatingly unoriginal and slightly homophobic plot line. I won't bore you with the plot details of Episode 6 (The Gynecologist), but I will give you some screen caps of this show's use of tackle.
Can't imagine why this show didn't get picked up. Anyway, we capture for posterity Hollywood's continuing effort to use fishing and tackle as a prop, even in soon-to-be-forgotten shows like this.
