Moussaoui and Co. (Don)

"One is an Islamicist radical. The other is an environmentalist terrorist. They both thought that they knew the ways of love and heartbreak, of murder and bloodshed: until they found themselves, strangers in exile from Western society--but not from each other. In a sublime setting in the Colorado Rockies, two men will find what they least expected, and what they most needed: _friendship_. ABC is proud to present the newest addition to TGIF: _Zack and Ted_. Check your local listings to see what happens when Zack forgets to recycle a Pepsi can and when Ted quotes from the Letters of St. Paul. Expect the totally expected."

Wow. Now I actually kind of want to see this show ...
You know, Don, if they made this show a little, uh, steamier -- if they made the friendship between the two pro[?]tagonists a little more, erm, intimate -- they could retitle it something like, I dunno, 'Brokeattack Mountain'?

Or "Love Sentences."

'Prisoners of Love' or, with a nod to Somerset Maugham and kinkiness, 'Of Human Bondage' might also do, though not quite as well.
And the theme song could be 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'? Or 'Love Bomb' (either the AC/DC one, or better, the Girls Aloud one)?
Ok, this is bad. Very bad. No more jokes about love and terrorism from me.
