Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

PETA is irrelevant. Nobody cares what they think.

They weren't exactly running race horses to the ground, it's just a monkey, some dogs and turtles. Oh yeah, and a tiger.


"He was alive yesterday?."

Last time I checked this was a) very illegal, and b) a terrible way of doing business.

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

Wow, you are brilliant. Did you come up with that well thought out sentence all by yourself?

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

I'm sorry, was "considering" too many syllables for you? Let me simplify things: this show is *beep*.

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

People Eating Tasty Animals?

After watching the premiere I don't see a reason for PETA to protest. I didn't see anything harmful to animals.

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

They don't like animals being trained for human amusement

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

PETA members are planning to dress in black and wear monkey masks outside Rockefeller Center in order to protest the new series Animal Practice, the new sitcom starring a capuchin monkey named Crystal. In a press release, the animal-rights group’s senior vice-president Lisa Lange stated: ”The cheap laughs that Animal Practice gets from putting a monkey in a lab coat come at a heavy cost for animals who spend their lives deprived of everything that is natural and important to them.” New York‘s Vulture blog features today a post by producer Gavin Polone, who also objects to the series, citing a primate veterinarian’s diagnosis: “Crystal’s natural response to a threat, sometimes called a fear grimace, has been reinforced and used in the show. This expression is often interpreted by the uninformed as a smile or laugh. But during her training, at some point the stimulus of fear had to be introduced.”

Animal Practice represents, for NBC, an attempt to appeal to the sort of broad audiences that have eluded higher-brow experimental series like 30 Rock or Community. Protests or no, it’s hard to imagine this show getting pulled from the air before the end of the season.

wow what an effective protest! (Sarcasm )

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

Oh sure, that monkey is deprived of the oh so productive years of throwing his poo at other monkeys! Give me a break!

Re: PETA is gonna rip this show apart!

PETA should protest real animal cruelty. These sort of protests just make a laughing stock out of them and debunk their credibility
