I saw a headline earlier today that mistakenly omitted a space between the fourth
and fifth words in the title of the new ABC comedy Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.
My immediate reaction was that I would totally be curious about a show called Don't Trust the Bitchin' Apartment 23.
Why not? Is the place haunted? Could it have some sort of weird Lost mystery going on? Does it trap you in the 1980s? Maybe it's actually a sentient traveling location like Danny the Street from Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol (which had the added curiosity
of being a transvestite sentient traveling location). Does it come with a secret freezer-closet of cold beer like in those commercials — or, being Apartment 23, perhaps cans
of Dr. Pepper — but they're dosed, and the furniture takes crude photos with you after you pass out?
I need to know how simultaneously rad and dangerous Apartment 23 is that we should not trust it despite its bitchin' nature.
