Channel 10 spent most of this week advertising its Friday night movie feature - The First Wives Club.
It seems to be a regular in the Channel 10 line-up - I wouldn't have thought the station's sub-35 demographic really went for menopausal faux-feminist feel-good flicks, but hey, maybe that's why I'm not a TV programmer.
What got my screeching banshee back hairs right up was the phrase they used at the start of the promo:
Voiceover: For a woman, they're the four MOST TERRIFYING words...
Cut to line from movie of douchebag husband telling a simpering Diane Keaton: I want a divorce.
REALLY, Channel 10? They're they four MOST TERRIFYING words that a woman could actually ever hear? REALLY?
Not "I'm sorry, it's cancer."?
Not "You're going to jail."?
Not "I'll kill you, bitch."?
Not "Your child is dead."?
I think Channel 10 is overlooking the ACTUAL four most terrifying words that a woman can hear, which is in response to asking "What's on Channel 10 tonight?"
"The First Wives Club."
(Sorry, I gotsa lotsa rage right now.)
