When you hear of a show titled Armed & Famous the first question that comes to mind is which network: Vh1 or MTV? Not only is the show's premise ridiculous, but that it is CBS flouting the next Unreality-Reality Series.
'Famous' people as cops, what's the point? Well, besides successfully getting Jack Osbourne to sport a real haircut and look like a real er, person, the show will take advantage of its semi-famous stars.
Promo Clips for Armed & Famous
CBS asks, "What TV show has Erik Estrada, LaToya Jackson, Jack Osbourne, Jason “Wee-Man” Acuna and Trish Stratus all together and training to become part of the police force?"
I don't know CBS, but should we assume that Armed & Famous is your first in a series of reality TV series you had promised (yourselves) to put out? I know, I sound hostile, it is just that I wish for less 'reality' and more shows to the caliber of Dexter, Heroes, LOST and Entourage.
To make things even worse, I must also admit that I was entertained by the four promo clips for the show. Damn them!
Armed & Famous: Firing Range
Armed & Famous: Physical Tactics
Armed & Famous: Everyone Must Get Tasered
Armed & Famous: Erik Defends His Weapon
Count on an effin Jackson to steal the show's thunder; even Michael is embarrassed. It looks like Erik Estrada and Jason "Wee-Man" Acuna will lead in (humorous) narration for each episode. Expect Jackass to make Wee-Man pay on a later date.
