I’m still wondering what on earth this particular TLC series would be called. I mean, in my experience that’s just called “high school in Alabama” (I can throw some playful shade, that’s my home state!) perhaps it’s part of the 90 day franchise, in which case it might be called “How to tick off your family in 90 days”? Or perhaps we should just try a retro style name, “Keeping it all in the family”, or you know, maybe we just want to dwell on the innocence of it all and call it “Ignorance is Bliss” and shorten that to “Ignorance”. Man, can you imagine that conversation at the proverbial water cooler the next day?
“What did you watch last night?”
“How was your night last night?”
“Watched Ignorance, it was great!”
“Look, I’m busy socially distancing myself tonight and watching Ignorance.” Seriously though, what are we playing at?
