As for comedy series, there’s not much you can watch that wouldn’t be filmed in a sitcom format. And it’s actually pretty clear. After all, who wants to risk their success by doing something that goes beyond the comfort zone of viewers and producers?
Shows like Barbee Rehab are the exact opposite of what one would see in a regular television series. It seems that the Internet is a territory where everything is possible, and the rules are being finished because of a concept that does not necessarily need them. No matter how different these shows are, it seems impossible to evaluate them among peers. These are not the shows you usually like, and you know what? Maybe you shouldn’t do that.
The story is strange, dirty and frankly contradictory. But it’s as simple as short jokes. You know, the ones you often tell your friends about. The Barbie Rehabilitation Center is the story of a man (Tom Sizemore) who tells a story that no one seems to believe. His psychiatrist (Janice Dickinson) continues to ask questions about this man’s delusional attitude to the place where plastic reigns. Literally.
He talks about a rehabilitation site for people passion with Barbie and Ken dolls. He also accepts those who live their lives like dolls. Yes, he’s trying to convince her that such a place exists. During his memories, we learn about this place and the people who live in it. If you thought the concept of the show was weird, then you haven’t seen what’s going on at Barbee Rehab.
That’s all. The Barbie Rehabilitation Center is nothing but a joke in which many familiar faces make fun of themselves, and the creator with great self-confidence. Whether you like it or not, it’s entirely up to you. Celebrating the product of a creative writer/director sometimes means looking at an audience that is ready to have fun with things that are inappropriate.
The show consists of strange, sometimes rude characters who use the context of the show to constantly make dirty jokes. There are times when you go too far, and perhaps this is where Barbee Rehab causes controversy. Does it matter? No. If you like “things are so bad they’re good”, maybe you’ll like this show. Just don’t get into the jokes.
Think about something. This is not a show that needs to be taken seriously. This goes beyond the moment of relaxation, when sitcoms seem perfect, but even in this matter they “deserve” the traditional attention of viewers. There’s nothing traditional about Barbie’s rehab center, and that’s fine. Derek S.Orr and Vanessa Bednar, passion with such a show, do not want a rating in which someone can say whether they liked his show or not. They want you to cringe, they want you to swear, and they want you to remember why.
