Cheaters: The Star Trek Confrontation

Right now I don’t have cable TV, so I’m stuck with local programming. I really need to pay off some med bills and get a new car, and I’ve gone down to just the must-have expeditures – shelter, food, etc.

But for some reason, I can get all the cheesy auxillary stations but not the big three: NBC, CBS and ABC. As I’m flipping channels trying to find something to watch that isn’t going to completely rot my brain out, like one of those judge shows, I landed on an episode of Cheaters.

Normally I would kill myself trying to change the channel, but as my finger moved over the remote button, I heard the host tell the guy that was cheated on: “If you want to confront her, she and the guy are at a Star Trek convention.”

Wait…it was gonna go down at a Star Trek con? Ok, I was sucked in.

So the guy cheated on confronts his girlfriend, who’s all dressed up as Marta the slave girl, from the original series, complete with red wig and green body paint. Her partner-in-crime is dressed up as Kirk (of course), complete with yellow shirt and phaser.

And the three of them start yelling at each other in the middle of the convention center.

The floozy grabs Kirk and takes off with him and the cheated on guy starts yelling how much he loves her and the chase is on.

Yes, this is some great quality TV, isn’t it? I couldn’t take anymore and had to change the channel.

I’m now watching some show on how to make homemade apricot ice cream.

I’m not sure how long I’m going to last without cable.
