image for TV Drama 'Life Of The Tiger Lady' Is "Absolutely Fucking Shite", Claims Man
She's getting angry again...

A TV drama broadcast in Thailand, but beamed into homes in other Asian locations, is "absolutely fucking shite" according to one man who viewed it in Cambodia.

'Life Of The Tiger Lady' is typical of other Thai TV drama shows, which show a complete lack of realism, and treat their viewers as if it were the first time many of them had seen a 'drama', or, indeed, a television.

The 'Tiger Lady' in question is one of a group of five friends who are caught up in a dispute in a jungle area - which, let's face it, often happens, right? - with not one, but two heavily-armed gangs of brutish-looking thugs.

She's a Tiger Lady because, when she gets angry, she turns into a big, angry tiger. Before this happens, however, she undergoes another awesome experience: she can alter the weather. Clouds gather, the wind gets up, rain falls, trees bend, folks' hair blows all over the place, and a bad time is had by all. Then, when she's pushed over the edge, she turns into a tiger. Nil for realism, right?

Every single night, the three disputing groups battle each other with heavy, military weapons such as AK47s, grenades, and rocket launchers, yet, miraculously, nobody dies from these onslaughts. Thousands upon thousands of rounds of ammunition are spent splicing trees and destroying foliage for about half of the show's 1-hour duration, yet not a single human is so much as grazed by a bullet.

As well as the almost constant gunfire, there is always, sadly, a nightly martial arts-style hand-to-hand combat session, which never seems to do anyone any harm either.

In one ill-planned scene, the Tiger Lady and her male friend are tied to a tree - the same tree - presumably so that they can chat, and plot their escape. During their conversation, it appears they are 'not-so-tightly tied', and that they could probably embrace, change places, or even go for a jungle walk. Tut tut, shit producers.

In every scene - gunfight, fleeing through the jungle, sleeping in undergrowth, plunging into rivers, enduring the hurricane-like conditions the Tiger Lady summons up - the villains look filthy, bedraggled and dishevelled, whilst the heroes in the group of five appear to have walked straight out of a Hollywood film set's make-up department sipping mineral water.

Exaggerated facial expressions, stares that are held rather too long, women slapping other women's faces without making any contact whatsoever, and screams that ought to sound blood-curdling, but end up sounding like someone had splashed ice-cream on a new frock, are the normal kinds of tripe served up. How anyone sits through this load of crap and watches it, is beyond me, but my wife does, spellbound.

The only reason I don't ask her to switch over, is because I know very well there will be some similar bullshit - possibly even worse - lurking on the other channels, and that is, indeed, a depressing thought.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
