Thin Line Between Stupid and Clever

Opining on Whatever

“Shit my dad says” to hit mainstream

Shatner!

I am not exactly a fan of this twitter phenomenon but I have to admit a soft spot for the daily posts by Justin Halpern chronicling the ridiculous comments his father says. Though I am not a tweeter myself, I frequently hear the musings by this disgustingly disgruntled 73 year old man and have to admit being amused. According to the Hollywood Reporter this concept has turned into an idea for a sitcom and has recently been green-lit. This fact alone did not garner my attention, it was the mentioning of William Shatner playing the lead role as the 73 year old father. Shatner’s ability to engage an audience with his deadpan delivery is unparalleled. If surrounded by the right writers this could turn into a gem of a show. I guess we will have to wait and see.
