What About Brian?
Monday, April 17, 2006
    Now, let it be known I watch only one TV show a week: J.J. Abrams' "Lost", but does ABC stand for "Abrams Broadcasting Network"? My gosh...

    Last night, Abrams' (Lost, Alias, etc) latest vehicle was rolled out for inspection. Generation X drama "What About Brian" got a special test drive after Desperate Housewives.

    The premise of the show is this: long-haired good looking white male (that would be Brian) can't find right girl. Brian realizes, in fact, he's found the right girl -- one problem, she's now engaged to his best friend.

    As you may expect, said friend has now asked him to be the best man in his wedding -- oh the irony. The SUPREME IRONY!!

    I have plenty of questions about the sustainability of this plot - chief among them, "just how many seasons of Brian being in love with best friend's fiance'/wife does J.J. think we can endure? Seven? Yeah right.

    I can imagine year four will really be a tense season as (just like in seasons 1-3) Brian weighs the pros and cons of coming clean and wrecking a friendship and possibly winning the girl. (Editor's note: this plot will also be repeated in season 5-7)

    One might expect plenty of episodes in which Brian is "this close" to opening up to the woman-in-question only to have his friend come in the room. "So, what are you two talking about?" "Oh, nothing really. Say, I really should get going... good to see you two." "Any time Brian." "Yeah, see you Brian."

    Music fades in "You and I collide..." Announcer: "Next Week on an all new What About Brian..."

    What About Brian? What about cancelled after one season. Sorry J.J.
