Is This Something?

How about a little levity?

This is available on Hulu tomorrow and piracy sites soon after.

It looks pretty good, despite being about Millennials (or Zoomers) and social media.

The Millennial in question is not the all-knowing, all-precocious snark queen that Hollywood thinks all Millennials are (because that's how all Millennial screenwriters see themselves). She's awkward and a mess, like, you know, a human being who's young and not successful yet and unsure of herself.

And she makes a bad decision.

Which, as bad decisions tend to do, then snowballs into a really, really bad decision.

Ten years ago (or was it 15? Who can remember?) 30 Rock featured a fake reality show called MILF Island.

I think that ever since then, TV producers have been racking their brain to figure out: How can we make a real MILF Island? You know, minus the CP implications?

Well, HBO has a halfway solid attempt with F*ckboy Island.

They call it "FBOY Island" but they mean F*ckboy.

Here's that definition.

I wouldn't watch more than thirty seconds of this, unless you want to see a bunch of f*ckboys dancing in their banana-hammocks. I just think the name and premise are amusing.

Last "Is This Something?" -- a band I'd never heard of from the 80s.

But... good?!?
