2020 (The Worst Made-for-TV Movie Ever)

2020 (The Worst Made-for-TV Movie Ever)


2020 has been like watching
The worst made-for-tv movie ever
And it's playing on every channel

You don't like where it's heading
But you're already so invested 
You figure you may as well
See it through to the end

All we need is the MGM Lion
To start off the daily news
Maybe if he roars loudly enough
People will stop and listen
It's all so surreal 

I could use some actual
Escapism right about now
This crazy drama
Has more horrible plots twists 
Than anyone truly needs

Can you imagine the movie trailer
For this year...

(Voiceover begins)

It started with the fires down under
Then the world shut it doors 
As a global pandemic raged
And now 
Murder hornets are taking over!
Will it ever be safe to go outside?
Who will perish?
Who will survive?
Looking back it's always... 2020!!

Seems over the top
And yet, here we are
Strictly for the amount of horror
I give this terrible movie
4 stars

  1. Worst show ever, episode after episode, and we're FORCED to binge-watch, forced into audience participation, like it or not (and who would?).

  4. You've described exactly why I refuse to watch certain drama. I always feel that the world-show offers enough despair and laughter and horror and thrill all by itself. And yes, sometimes I wish we could turn it off... and get back to sweet, sweet living.

    1. I'm down to about an hour a day of television. It's about all I can handle. I need to tune out and turn off.

  5. I think longingly of the WW II newscaster named Gabriel Heatter. He prefaced his newscasts by saying "There's good news tonight, folks". Whatever happened to that idea? Our newscasts are filled with prophesies of doom....and our demented leader fans the flames at every opportunity!

    1. That would be an amazing way to start the news! Would sweeten all the sour that's going on out there. It's hard enough to swallow.

  6. The villains here would have been dismissed as cheesy and unrealistic if it was a movie. Gargamel from the Smurfs cartoon had far more gravitas than any of the dingbats in my county's government.

    1. Even Gargamel had a few redeeming qualities. Seriously, if it weren't true no one would believe it.

  7. Amen to the longing for actual escapism!

  8. So true! I love the lines:
    ‘All we need is the MGM Lion
    To start off the daily news
    Maybe if he roars loudly enough
    People will stop and listen’.
    It' is indeed surreal. How much worse can it get?

    1. I'm hoping it doesn't turn into an infomercial... but wait there's more!

  11. You said it all, Lori. I’m sure all the action less/adventureless films will be hitting the theaters in the fall.
