This Movie Sucks! reads like a reiteration of Ed’s Nite In, where Ed and human sidekick Red (Liana Kerzner) make fun of bad films. This Movie Sucks! will be followed by I Hate Hollywood! in September 2010, according to Bill Brioux and the Ed the Sock website. A new version of Fromage is also planned.
I’m ambivalent about Ed the Sock’s return to television. This Movie Sucks! is the perfect fit for both CHCH and CHEK. It’s a terrible fit for Movieola, the short-film channel. At least CHCH is airing more than its usual midnight martial-arts film, so I shouldn’t complain. I’ll only judge This Movie Sucks! once it airs.
