Storyline

The show that pushed forward the boundries of youth TV. Sometimes funny, sometimes just sick. The most controversial part was where members of the audience prove what they'd do to get on TV, always things too disgusting to print here! Memorable moments from the show include Mark Lamarr interrogating musician Shabba Ranks about his homophobia, an early appearance by Nirvana and Sean Ryder of The Happy Mondays completely drugged-up with the cast of the children's TV show "Rainbow".

Terry Christian. Why?
4 January 2003 | by Victor FieldSee all my reviews

A recurring feature of "The Word" was "The Hopefuls," people who'd do anything to get on television. One girl swirled her finger inside the navel of an enormously fat man, licked it off (pause to retch), and said "I'd do anything to get on TV." Yes, we noticed... Enough said.

Except that Dani Behr was hot.
