The bitch is back...

What does Elton John mean by "upmarket Spinal Tap"? That his sitcom on ABC is going to be more highbrow than This Is Spinal Tap? What a bitch. A few thoughts

1. Anytime the concept of your show can be boiled down to three words, and two of those words are the title of a movie, you can't be a goddamn snob about it.

2. Has Elton John ever been associated with the highbrow? Being English does not automatically elevate one to being a wit. I mean, was that rhinestone Dodgers uniform actually an Oscar Wilde-esque comment on American secular religion and materialism? Or did he just like to dress like a jackass?

3. Nothing screams upmarket like "sitcom" and "ABC". Maybe they can do a sweeps episode doing a crossover with "8 Simple Rules". Or a Halloween episode where the main character dresses up as a heterosexual. Delighfully randy, Elton!

4. Can I start referring to reruns of "Small Wonder" as "upmarket Blade Runner"?
