G4's The Block Hotel Reality Show Debuts
Remember The Block Hotel? The hotel the snowboarding hotel where the staff was adverse to "ho's who talk to much", well they got their own reality show--shocker right? Thing is, we Tivo'd the series premiere and surprisingly, the Block is not only watchable, but it may well be the greatest show modern day television has ever seen.
Ok, that is over the top Trumpian hyperbole, however, The Block is, at the very least, a promising hotel version of The Restaurant, and we have been waiting for this very show since Brunett's fake-reality show The Casino bombed a couple years back. Eventually, someone had to nail the made for reality tv drama of day to day hotel management, and it looks like G4 did it with The Block. How? The cast is a perfect mix of combustible personalities who run a snowboarding hotel in South Lake Tahoe.
From hotelier Liko S. Smith, an x-military man of some sort who actually said "what is your major malfunction" in the premiere, to green hotelie Michael, to the cute, barely coherent girl staffers these folks are totally worth watching.
Premiere episode highlights included:
·Maintenance man Jorge looking thoroughly disgusted with his new crop of workers.
·Petey comparing smoking weed to drinking coffee and explaining to a girl who told him to put his seat belt on "I can't cause I am holding a bong".
·Petey, a self proclaimed "born salesman", walks into a store that had just been burglarized the previous night, and right as the store owner is explaining what happened, Petey, always the salesman, says "anyway, we are having a party over at The Block". Michael K. Scott he is not.
