Fish On!: It's Charlie's Angels meets Bass Fishing. One guy and three bikini babes (a corporate attorney, an ex-BMX champ, and a "Scorpion King" starlet) go fishing all over the world. All brought to you by ESPN2. [link via boingboing.net] What other title would you have given this show?

This has got to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen ... and I watch FOX regularly. The whole charm of fishing shows (and even fishing) is the good ole' boy feel, and that's not enough to get non-fishermen interested. Three women in bikinis is NOT compelling enough a reason to build an audience. Also: doesn't this just make ESPN look like a bunch of pigs? Alternate names: A-LURE-ing Three Broads and a Boat Fish Tails Hey, At Least We're Not Showing Soccer Again and my personal fave, Chasing Tuna

Fishing with John II? John Lurie knows absolutely nothing about fishing, but that doesn't stop him from undertaking the adventure of a lifetime on Fishing With John. Traveling with his special guests to the most exotic and dangerous places on earth, John Lurie battles sharks with Jim Jarmusch off the tip of Long Island, goes ice fishing with Willem Dafoe at Maine's northernmost point, braves the Costa Rican jungle with Matt Dillon, takes Tom Waits to Jamaica, and searches for the elusive giant squid with Dennis Hopper in Thailand.

you guys don't like seeing bikini babes on tv in the early evening. and its not like they are fishing with some chump. the guy is good. and the show is as good as any other salt water fishing show....its mostly alot of talk, some reeling shots, and a few fish jumps....i don't know, the show doesn't seem to be lacking all that much, and offers a few extras (6) to the mix.

How about: "Once I Get You In the Boat I'm Going To Frantically Beat Your Wiggling Body and Head With a Club Until You Stop Squirming Then I'm Going to Gut You" ? Or, "Bite This Hook" Or, "That's no Lure Dangling In Front of You" Or, "Unzipped Fly Fishing" on preview...I'm demented

There's something creepy about combining fish and sex. Really, really creepy.
