Friday distraction: Let's hear your review of "IT Chicks"

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to preview a new made-for-the-Web show called "IT Chicks," which is about the adventures of two short-skirt-wearing, cleavage-revealing women who make up the IT staff in an office where employees are helpless, clueless and sexist, all the stuff that would have legal and HR departments involved.After watching the preview and trailer, I passed on writing about it ahead of time.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to preview a new made-for-the-Web show called "IT Chicks," which is about the adventures of two short-skirt-wearing, cleavage-revealing women who make up the IT staff in an office where employees are helpless, clueless and sexist, all the stuff that would have legal and HR departments involved.

After watching the preview and trailer, I passed on writing about it ahead of time. It seemed to be less entertaining, as much as it was sophomoric, sexist and stereotypical. Admittedly, I can be a fan of sophomoric, sexist and stereotypical on occasion. After all, I'm a fan of shows like South Park, The Office and others.

But there was something about this show - maybe the whole IT angle - that just threw me off. But what do I know? I'm no TV reviewer. I'm just a TV viewer.

Today, the production company released the first full episode, called Backup is a Bee-Yatch. So, if you're looking for a Friday distraction, invest 7 minutes (or as much as you can stand) and share your review of the pilot episode in the talkbacks.
