Sunday, August 28, 2011: I Just Want My Pants Back

Sunday, August 28, 2011: <i>I Just Want My Pants Back</i>

As much as I'm inclined to make fun of this show's terrible title, there's something about the fact that I Just Want My Pants Back was a book first that makes it feel wrong to mock. I don't know. I guess it could be worse; it could be called something like, Slacks: Based on the Novel I Just Want My Pants Back by David J. Rosen. Actually, that would be amazing.

So, Pants is about Jason Strider (Peter Vack), a post-grad living in Brooklyn and struggling with all of those things young twentysomethings often find themselves all shook up over. When Jason's one night stand steals his beloved jeans, he begins a quest to get both the girl and the pants back. It's directed and executive produced by Doug Liman (Bourne Identity, Swingers, The O.C.), so there's hope that the series is better than its name -- not that the bar is set too high.

The series premiere of I Just Want My Pants Back is on MTV tonight at 11 PM after the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. And if you have an argument on why this name isn't terrible, I would genuinely love to read it in the comments.
