Girls! Girls! Girls!
Sarah and I have a complex relationship with old Dr. P. Because we enjoy judging strangers, we like it when he rakes his guests over the coals. We are less fond of his Christian-y insistence on trying to save every marriage (y'all, some people just need to get divorced), and his hoary generalizations about what men and women are like. Over the years, too, the show has gotten a lot less must-see; there's the whole "Dr. Phil Now" thing he does where he responds to the news, and the Dr. Phil house, and other gimmicky shit. Also, the increasing participation of Mrs. Phil is not something I signed off on. And this latest business with Britney hasn't covered him with glory.
