Future is here, and it's 'Bananas'

The 1971 movie “Bananas” ends with newly married Woody Allen and Louise Lasser having sex under a blanket but on television with the late broadcaster Howard Cosell narrating the encounter as he would have called a boxing match. Afterward, Cosell interviews them.

“Bananas” was a hilarious movie in its day, and that last scene was one of the funniest. We laughed because it was ridiculous.

Now comes word that a series called “The Sex Box” has been slated to run on We TV next year. The Washington Post reports: “The premise of the show, set in front of a studio audience: Couples go into a soundproof box without cameras. They have sex. Then, they have a frank and honest discussion about what just happened with a group of therapists and sex experts – in front of the studio audience.”

An episode of the show, which has aired in Great Britain, may be seen on YouTube. It is as godawful and awkward as it sounds.

However, Allen, who directed “Bananas,” now looks not only like a masterful humorist, but a prophet.
