Can you seriously promise that this is going to be an actual TV show?" And he was like "Yeah, totally!" And they were like, "Okay, we trust you!"
Everybody acts in an unseemly, yet inscrutable fashion. Bets are placed. Horses run in a circle. Old men nap together. Self-destruction is the order of the day.
