Beautiful. Damn hard. Increasingly useful.

While I was chatting with [livejournal.com profile] grahamsleight earlier, he came up with the notion of a feminist sitcom with NO LAUGH TRACK because it's NOT FUNNY. Naturally, I had to mention this to [personal profile] xtina.

02:29:38 Xtina: It would be meta, as the concept itself would not be funny!
02:29:42 Rose: except it is!
02:29:44 Rose: to me, anyway
02:29:46 Xtina: It would just be this slow pan of a desperately confused audience.
02:29:53 Rose: *bursts out laughing*
02:30:02 Rose: confused people are funny!
02:30:51 Xtina: You might get smatterings of applause, but the immediate murmuring response of their seatmates ends that quickly.
02:31:04 Xtina: They look guilty and concerned. Others, self-righteous.
02:31:12 Xtina: At some point, the whole thing explodes in a poof of logic.
02:31:14 Rose: the whole sitcom takes place off-screen
02:31:20 Rose: and is never quite audible
02:31:30 Rose: _deeply_ meta
02:31:58 Xtina: Oo, yes. They can occasionally zoom in for specific audiencial reactions.
02:32:52 Xtina: I would want a running bet - how long until someone shrieks "WHERE'S THE "APPLAUSE" SIGN?!?" and runs flapping out of the room?
02:34:55 Xtina: How long until a small band of people band together and laugh, regardless of what's going on?
02:35:34 Rose: how long until a male feminist ally gets loudly offended?
02:35:41 Xtina: "HA HA HA HA HA!"
02:35:52 Xtina: And his female compatriots get offended at his offense...
02:35:56 Rose: "IF I WERE A WOMAN I WOULDN'T THINK THAT WAS FUNNY!"
02:36:00 Rose: "WELL I'M A WOMAN AND I DO!"
02:36:19 Xtina: I really really want one of those... sports snackycake walkerfolk? I don't know. Vendors?
02:36:26 Xtina: Only with eggs and fruit.
02:36:29 Rose: hahahaha
02:37:08 Rose: and then the egg jokes
02:37:14 Rose: and then the abortion comments...
02:37:37 Xtina: The DVD has a behind-the-scenes shot that is the sitcom itself.
02:37:54 Xtina: Director's cut just shows the director and producer and such folk *cracking up forever*.
