I don’t have cable so when I hear people talking about the latest episode of their favorite TV show, I have to make a quick assumption about the kind of show they’re describing. It’s either that or trust Wikipedia, which I don’t.
The Hard Times of RJ Berger
About: Examines the hard times of RJ, the man behind the mask of the Hamburglar, who falls from Ronald McDonald’s good graces after eating an Apple Pie.
Kinda Like: The story of Adam and Eve meets “Oz” in and around a dilapidated McDonald’s.

You might hear me say: Ha! Mayor McCheese’s hat is way too small for his head!

You might hear me say: I’ve only smoked crack once, so it’s kind of hard for me to relate to the main character.

Kinda Like: "24" meets "Project Runway".
