10.5 Apocalypse

This week NBC is airing a new 2-part mini-series called "10.5 Apocalypse". It's the sequel to the equally ridiculous mini-series that aired two years ago called "10.5".

In the original "10.5", a massive earthquake causes the entire west coast to split from the North American continent. If you missed it, be thankful that you have an extra 4 hours in your life to do something more productive like picking your nose. But that didn't stop the writers from tapping into their collective creativity once again to come up with something even more awesome - a massive earthquake that splits the entire North American continent in half. They even added the word "Apocalypse" to the title - because that totally isn't cheesy. And like every earthquake movie ever made, you know the cameraman is just shaking the camera.

NBC has had a pretty tough run - dropping all the way from the number one network to last place in a matter of a few years. Sure, the network has been a victim of poor timing since several of their famous sitcoms have gone off the air at once. But I'm pretty sure putting crap on the air doesn't help much either.

I hear the writers are already busy at work on yet another sequel that continues to push the creative envelope. This time around, a massive earthquake splits the entire earth in two. The working title is "10.5 Apocalypse. Seriously."

I loved how in the original 10.5, it opens with a guy mountain biking along Seattle streets, then trying to bike away as the space needle comes crashing down toward him. It could only have been better if he'd been holding a Starbucks cup.
