Sometimes it takes a truly terrible experience to make one appreciate the mediocre. Until a few minutes ago I thought that Fear Factor ranked amongst the worst of shows on television. But the new series that the Boston Globe calls mediocre sets a new low. Wickedly Perfect has an incredible power. After just 10 minutes the prospect of lying down in the middle of Interstate 15 on a busy holiday weekend seems marvelous. At least it will mean the show will be over. My prediction -and they are so often correct this should really matter - this show will sink in the ratings faster than the XFL.
