There's a show on MTV called "Sex...with Mom and Dad", which is unfortunately not a heavily stylized, jump-cut-filled incest porn. Rather, it is a show about opening up the lines of communication between parents and their children about sex. This is very important to the show's host and therapist Dr. Drew. You may know Dr. Drew from the intermittently awesome "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" on VH1. This season features Gary Busey who is apparently just there to hang out and drop science. Important note: Gary Busey is not a scientist.
"Sex...with Mom and Dad with Dr. Drew" cements Dr. Drew's position as the liberal Dr. Phil. Where Dr. Phil wears suits and talks condescendingly, Dr. Drew doesn't wear a coat and raps with the people. I half-expect him to turn his chair around and straddle it when he has these convos. In a head-to-head matchup, Dr. Drew is much more likeable and more legitamate therapist-like than Dr. Phil, but I'd still rather see a doctor who uses his last name. Maybe Phil and Drew's last names are something like Hitlerfucker. Or maybe they're trying to create a heavily contrived sense of personality.
There's little reason to watch "Sex...with Mom and Dad with Dr. Drew" except if you tune in around 5 minutes before the end of each episode. If you're lucky, you'll get to see Dr. Drew's dramatic end-of-session "I'm so proud of you" face. It's awesome and he does it every time, each time slightly different. Like a skilled composer's variations on a theme, Dr. Drew's proud-face deepens its impact each time you see it.
Maybe I'll talk about music sometime soon.
