“Secret Girlfriend” is the latest series from Comedy Central, and it stars…you. Sort of.
I had no idea what to expect going in, other than what the network showed during its promos for the series. Basically, those were just quick-fire shots of hot women (Alexis Krause, Sara Fletcher) intercut with a couple of schlubby guys (Michael Blaiklock, Derek Miller).
The premise is this: you are part of the show. Your friends (Blaiklock and Miller), ex-girlfriend (Krause) and new girlfriend (Fletcher) all interact with you by talking directly to the camera, texting you via phone, or video chatting with you on your computer. Hijinks ensue.
The show is based on an internet series and was re-cast for television. After watching the premiere, I can safely say that I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s fast-paced, crass, and quite funny at times. Most guys will appreciate the constant barrage of sex that’s thrown at the viewer. In the first half hour, the main character sees his half-naked ex (twice), swims with a bunch of scantily clad women, holds an “audition” for some other scantily clad women, and goes to a strip club (twice).
