My Tuesday Obsession

The Two Coreys. That's right, I am now obsessed with The Two Coreys. It's the reality show that follows Corey Haim and Corey Feldman around LA, seeing how they've grown and changed over the years. The first season was awful. It had goofy music and tried to make them look like good friends with nothing but laughs. I stopped watching after 2 episodes. Then a miracle happened.

At the end of the first season, Feldman and Haim (tey go by their last names) had a mega fight, with Haim calling Feldman's super-hot wife a "f*@king bitch" and Feldman getting physical with Haim. What was a lame, dying reality show turned into TV gold.

Season Two, available on YouTube, starts with them not having spoken for 6 months. They meet in a diner in LA and start discussing serious issues from their past, including Haim's blaming Feldman for being molested when he was 14 yrs old. Yeah, it gets intense. The rest of the episodes are much darker than the first season, and it is facinating.

I watched episodes 5 and 6 last night and 1-4 during lunch today. I don't know why I like this, but if Brian can like Jon & Kate + 8, I think this is acceptable.
Here's a quick snippet of the blowout at the diner. Reality TV - when you're good, you are GOOD.

P.S. The line "Then a miracle happened." is a quote from the movie Amadeus, when Salieri's father, who wouldn't let him pursue music, choked and died. It's cold, and that's why I remembered it.

I will take your word that the 2d season is better, but having seen a couple of episodes from the 1st season I cannot have you denigrate J&K+8. LOL

Wow, Corey Haim is a really good actor. And really, I can't have you talking about Jon & Kate that way. It's just not acceptable.
