    You're going to have to wait a couple of months for a thesis paper by Drunk Pooro.

    It'd be well worth it.

    I think DP got banned outright, actually. Alas.

    But Secret Girlfriend is just Girls Gone Wild with less nudity and 2% more narrative.

    I dunno, to use the camera as a written character is something unique.

    e: it's like POV porn on national television.

    Man that is exactly what I just said.

    There's less interaction between the audience and the camera in GGW and whatnot. You're distinctly aware that there's a "camera man" in GGW. In Secret Girlfriend you become a different person via the camera. Very different; much more voyeur.

    e: I take it back, it's not voyeur, it's something new and weird and it makes me uncomfortable.

    i think it's weird because people are forced into looking directly though the eyes of another person

    they're forced into another role rather than watching a 3rd party

    rarely used outside of porn


    (edit) also the idea that there is no camera is unsettling. Every other time this POV is used there's heavy emphasis that there's a camera

    GGW, there's a camera they're playing to
    POV porn, there's a camera that they're playing to
    Cloverfield, they talk to a guy holding a camera

    you're never the guy, you're the viewer watching the tape from the cameraman

    It's even different from porn in the sense that the plot is furthered by "you," like when the cell phone is being used and all that junk. Hm.

    Man, I thought Secret Girlfriend was going to be something, but I googled it and it wasn't. It wasn't anything in the least.

    Check out a british sitcom called "Peep Show". It pulls off the "seeing through the characters eyes" VERY well. there is no implied camera, but you hear the interior monolog of whoever's eyes you are seeing through.

    I didn't see even a minute of this show before a few weeks ago when my friends brought their Season 1 DVD over and we watched all of it.

    Now I am addicted but Hulu only has Season 3 and 5 and I have watched them both. I need more of this.

    Wasn't there a POV movie about Muhammad? That would be an interesting film to watch.

    It's just two hours of people talking and for some reason this one guy will never ever look at Muhammad.

    I just started/finished S1 of this show today.
    I've been instructed that it gets much better. I still think S1 is watchable, but I'm looking forward to it getting really good.

    It's a pretty steady decline into absurdity.

    Which is just hilarious.

    Season 1 is diamond in the rough territory.

    Season 2 is when Frank shows up. And Dee becomes less of a normal person and more in line with the rest of the gang.

    Is it just me or is Charlie more and more insane as the series goes? I feel like this season he is more delusional than lucid. I think it's the repeated head injuries and paint huffing.

    Charlie has always been really insane. Every time you get a glance at his personal life, it's weird and fucked-up and retarded. I think that we're just getting to see more of it as time goes on.

    EDIT: When he was trying to DENNIS the waitress, did you notice how she didn't even seem scared that someone had broken into her apartment? Like she just knew it would be Charlie and was annoyed, rather than shocked or frightened? I think he does this fairly often, but this is just the first time it's been on camera.
