8 Incredibly Awkward TV Shows To Watch With Your Parents
Because there is no greater awkward moment in the history of awkward moments than that awkward moment when you see an incredibly awkward situation on the screen when your watching TV with your parents. Did I mention the word awkward? Here's a look at 8 shows you definitely do not wanna watch with your parents. TRUST!
Game Of Thrones
Is there anything more uncomfortable than sitting with your parents as you watch a fantasy show about violence and betrayal amongst supposedly noble families as they struggle to gain control of the Iron Throne? JK. It's the sex that's awkward. The incredibly graphic and crude sex scenes. Especially the incest. Families should never watch incest sex scenes together. Just my opinion.
Some parents are down with this show for sure! That doesn't change the fact that it's an incredibly bad feeling to see your mom's disappointed face as you belly laugh at the mere idea of a child being molested. Then you have to explain how you don't think that child sexual abuse is really funny, it's just funny when it's cartoons and Chef...yeah just stop. Trust me, nothing is more awkward than explaining the nuances of child molestation humor to someone who doesn't get it. I've tried many times.
Sure, you used to love watching Malcolm in the Middle together as a family back in the day. That doesn't mean you wanna watch the dorky dad's latest project. Especially when it leads to uncomfortable drug talks at the end of every episode. Those are more awkward than grown up Frankie Muniz.
American Horror Story
The bizarre sex and Dylan McDermott constantly walking around butt-naked is bad enough. But having to hold your terrified mom once the opening credits roll and then having to sleep in bed with her that night after the episode ends is even more horrifying than the show. Especially when she wakes up screaming 'MOMMY, MOMMY I'M SCARED!" in the middle of the night. Just ignore her. Pretend you're still sleeping. It's best for all involved.
16 And Pregnant
This is the perfect show to watch with your parents if you love talking about safe sex with them afterwards. Personally I was never fond of my mom asking me if I knew how babies were made.
Oh a show about a guy who's down on his luck trying to make money using his huge schlong? That doesn't sound awkward at all. NOT! The worst part is the knowing looks and sexy smiles your mom constantly gives your dad during a viewing. That's not only awkward it can also lead to an inferiority complex.
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
It's similar to South Park only without the comforting fantasy of animated characters. You really are laughing at a human woman dating a possibly retarded person and homeless person fapping behind a dumpster. Just look at you parents, shrug your shoulders and say 'YOU MADE ME THIS WAY!'
Congratulations! Your entire family is an embarrassment to this world. Even the most diehard Gleeks dropped off after the first half of season 3! I mean I've heard of families who carry shameful secrets but this takes it to a whole new level. Like a Cersei and Jamie Lannister kind of family secret shame level! Glee love...up there with really, really wrong brother-sister love. Sounds about right.
