    I cannot believe a show with so much sex, drugs and rock&roll hasn't merited a thread by now.
    I forced myself to watch the entire 60 minutes, and it very well might have been the worst television show I've ever seen.
    Having grown up in the 70s, I kept trying to think of a single cool "swinging" parent in my suburb. Fact is, nearly every parent I knew was WWII generation, or just afterward.
    I'm pretty sure none of the moms in my area of the country were popping ludes and doing coke. Not a single one would look hot in a bikini. (Too bad for that!)
    Congrats, CBS.
    Cancelled "Moonlight."
    Introduced "Swingtown."
    You've had a hell of a month.

    I watched about 20 minutes and changed the channel. Ugh.

    The night is falling, and the music's calling,
    And we've got to get down to Swingtown.

    I watched the whole show. It really wasn't good. I might watch next week to see if it gets better. Probably not, though. I really was just watching because there was severe weather in my neck of the woods and wanted to keep it on a network to make sure we weren't going to get with tornadoes.

    Instead you got hit with a steaming sack of 70s.

    Swingtown ... from the makers of Jericho.

    (I didn't watch Swingtown, BTW, but I think you can on cbs.com.)

    "I'm talkin' 'bout sex, boy. What the hell you talkin' about?

    I'm talkin' about l'amour! I'm talkin' that me and Dot are swingers — as in 'to swing.' I'm talkin' about wife swappin'! I'm talking' about what they call nowadays open marriage. I'm talking about ... (punch in the face)

    If any TV series ever demanded a parody from Porn Valley, it's this one.

    This is true because the storm of the decade that meteorologists told us last night would be never happened.

    I thought this series was a parody OF Porn Valley.
