The format of this painfully dull show is identical to other persons of the Kardashian empire: interminable scenes of people sitting in kitchens not dining cheese plates

Is there a least qualified actuality see wizard than Rob Kardashian? If you lined up 10 parties from the throwing record of A& Es Intervention and Rob Kardashian and had to choose one to base an ongoing tv series around, would you ever pick him unless people know his last name? Isnt this a tragedy? Shouldnt we all be more upset?

Sunday nighttimes debut of the new E! sequence Rob& Chyna commemorates the income of the black sheep Kardashian to the public eye. Hes wasted years of their own lives unwilling to leave his room, which effected him to gain( his statements) a grasp of weight. He appears little comfy realise eye linked with other human beings than the little orphan girlfriend Newt from the movie Aliens. A Los Angeles Dodgers hat covers whats left of the poor people thin, matted mane. His wardrobe consists of T-shirts , nondescript jeans and sneakers. In other words, when I watch this astoundingly depressing curriculum, I check myself and what I might become( minus the millions of dollars ).

The first few minutes of Rob& Chyna intend to see us empathize with Rob and his pregnant fiancee Blac Chyna. As an digression, isnt it a little bit horrid that Blac Chyna exits almost entirely by the epithet Chyna in the first occurrence now that the original Chyna the former WWE wrestler has died? Its like rummaging through people jewelry after a funeral.

Regardless of what you call her, Blac Chyna is the actual superstar of this picture, even if her refer is second on the marquee. She came up from the world-famous airstrip sororities of Atlanta and became something of an entrepreneur, at least in the way that we define that term in 2016. She took the Kardashian template of monetizing tabloid villainy through a sect of identity social media ubiquity, branded concoctions, and now, the final segment of the puzzle, an E! reality franchise. Shes become a major supporting player in the ongoing Kardashian meta-narrative having a baby with the rapper Tyga, who then leaves her for Kylie Jenner, which leads to Chyna unite thrusts with Rob. Whether or not her relationship with Rob is genuine or a calculated effort to increase her making potential is not for me to decide (* cough its bullshit cough *) but what is is whether or not this TV show is good. Its not.

Rob
Rob& Chyna: moved with the wind. Picture: E!

If your litmus test for sticking with a programme designed is answering the question does someone fart within the first 10 hours with a yes, then Rob& Chyna is for you. Spoiler alert, Chyna farts in the car. If you prefer a little bit of drama, then maybe flip over to another channel. Or throw your cable container or streaming design into the nearest open body of water and wander into the town square. Either one is fine with me.

The format of this painfully monotonous show is identical to the other outposts of the Kardashian empire: wearisome vistums of parties driving indulgence vehicles on featureless freeways, sitting around kitchens not gobbling cheese layers, or folding invests for a business tour that are able to or may not ever happen. During these backgrounds, mush-mouthed pod people debate some ill-defined conflict. Someone needs to go to rehab for a vague problem. Somebody must text person back about a thing that happened off camera. Someone appears disrespected. A party invite is lost in the mail. Watching these reveals is like reading the most banal email thread at 3am. Plug sad-eyed agoraphobe Rob Kardashian into this format and you have a panacea for insomnia so potent, the Food and Drug Administration should govern it.

The ostensible planned of this occurrence is organized around Rob accusing Chyna of texting guys behind his back. He shows this to be the case because he discovers that Chyna has changed the passcode on her iPhone. He even insinuates that shes securing up with her ex, Tyga. All of this takes lieu with Rob spread out comfortably on a berth. Chyna denies any evil, then accuses Rob of contacting wives behind her back. He apparently acknowledges it, which I vaguely recollect before my eyelids glued closed for the night. It must be the case, because the very next incident is Chyna in another expensive vehicle screaming at Rob to stop texting bitches.

These are the moments one watches actuality Tv for aggressivenes, incoherent call and profanity. This is why I prefer the Andy Cohen Bravo model for reality over the ponderous Ryan Seacrest/ Kris Jenner indulgence gabfests. Contrast Rob& Chyna with Bravos Below Deck, currently on its fourth season and with one spinoff under its region. Below Decks premise is simple: throw a bunch of attractive deckhands on a mega-yacht, cater them with alcohol, and be fostered to melt down every escapade. Would you instead watch that or a display starring beings more famed to represent proper fools of themselves for your amusement? The refute is, neither, Im a grownup who is too busy lending ethic to the culture to demoralize myself with such frivolities, but dont worry, I picked the show about yachties drunkenly fastening up too.

I said here today that the producers of Rob& Chyna( which include the titular Rob and Chyna among their ranks) do try to spice occasions up. Scott Disick appears in the role of Robs only friend in the entire world and his chauffeur, schlepping him around Los Angeles like a pasty lily-white Morgan Freeman from Driving Miss Daisy. Theres a memorable incident where Rob ambles into Chynas home in full Eeyore mode, carrying flowers to apologize for texting bitches. Chyna isnt having it, grabs the flowers, chucks them in a kitty, then kicks Rob out of her room. This is the turning point of the alleged story, as the remainder of the episode involves Chyna trying to get Rob to text her back, as she has seemingly forgotten that she hollered at him to leave her alone while pee-pee all over his nostalgic gesture. Im sure Rob Kardashian, AKA Calabasas Morrissey, certainly took that well.

Finally, Kris Jenner, matriarch of the extended Kardashian family and former nemesis of Blac Chyna, appears to counsel Chyna on how be addressed with Rob. Jenner is shown to be so prudent that I half expected her to have grown a beard, picked up a large twig, and shed on a pointy hat off-screen. Much has been made of how Blac Chyna is so cunning and took down the Kardashians by getting engaged to Rob. Thats a nifty little underdog narrative, but if you think that Kris Jenner isnt cunning enough to use this to her advantage and will be the ultimate winner of this dim-witted contest, then you arent paying attention to the prove. Thats fine, since it probably manufactured you pass out from apathy, but the fact remains that one of the last faces you see in this first occurrence is Kris Jenner. The whole moronic endeavor is hers and hers alone. Chyna can have a piece, as long as she compensates her taxes to her feudal lord.

And they are Rob. At last-place, they found a mode to monetize his mopey appearance and wrinkled invests. Instead of a Shrek-like soul they impede locked away in a basement, he has his own picture, which exclusively furthers the attainment of the objectives of their own families. In exchange, this boy who probably has real clinical depression has to pretend to be a TV hotshot. By accident, E! has stumbled upon the saddest present on television, so filled with existential hopelessnes that youd presume it was drummed up by a government-funded columnist in some mushy Scandinavian country over a bottle of cheap scotch. If “youre watching” more than one of the following options occurrences, youll probably find yourself not leaving the house for years, just like Rob Kardashian.
