So how was disc golf portrayed? Wondering since I'm fortunate enough to not have cable.
The word "disc" was never said. The word "golf" was said once and only to define what "frolf" is for the audience. There was only about 1-2 seconds of footage of people playing, which was one girl teeing off and hitting another in the face. During about half of that time I could see a basket in the background that was a little blurry and then an actor moved in front of it so I couldn't see it anymore.
The rest of the time "frolf" was referred to as something the guy did that the girl didn't like as the two spatted during the episode about being honest with each other and expressing what their true feelings were on a nuber of issues.
Which reminds me, I wonder how the running sock (or whatever they're called) manufacturer's feel?
"I think we can all agree the "frolf" episode of Happy Endings on ABC last night was not what we were hoping it would be. We were told by ABC that the episode was centered around disc golf, and they even asked us to send them some PDGA stuff to use on the set. We're sorry if we built it up without knowing exactly what the episode would entail, but the idea of disc golf on prime time television de...finitely had us excited, understandably.
Bad press is sometimes better than no press, but in this case no one benefited. Our biggest hope for the episode was that if someone watching didn't know what disc golf was, they would at least have an idea after. Unfortunately for all parties involved, that was not the case."
