Real Reality Shows — 18 Comments

    • Sod the children.  It would be a good life-lesson for them.  This is what happens when you lie, cheat and steal people's money.

  1. "Reality" shows have become big over here, across the Pond.  Cheaper to produce than "dramas", these things, using the word loosely, fill the cable and broadcast networks.  Now, (surprised?) it comes out the shows like Shortage Wars are, in fact, set-ups.  The producers plant shit in lockers to be bid on, and then, (surprised?) the winners go through the crap and find hidden treasures (surprised?)  What shit.  My only "must see" is Duck Dynasty about some bubbas who make duck calls and have too much money for their own good.  I have a high bubba factor but not the money needed to go with it.   I still pay for cable.  WHY?

    • I think you can add shows like 'Dog The Attention Hunter', 'Steve Wilcos' and 'Doctor Phil' to that genre of arse dribble.

      Shite like this only reaffirms my belief that the level of human intelligence has hit an all time low. As Einstein said once; "I fear the day that technology will surpass our Human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots".

      Herself is the only reason that there's a TV in the house. It's the only time I can get her to shut the fuck up.

    • Don't we know it!  It's even cheaper for us to just buy all your garbage, so we have wall to wall dross.  I don't think Duck Dynasty has made it here yet, but it will……

  2. Hi GD,

    I have a dream where groups of (opposing parties) politicians, lawyers, Government PR people, newspaper/media owners and idiot judges are transported to a truly hostile location, such as the middle of Australia.  They would be equipped with basic survival tools plus a spear and large knives, then left alone to fight it out for a final winner.  An – as yet not invented – series of miniature robot flying cameras would record the action.  Of course, the winners would have to be eliminated for cheating…

    Would make a great novel and film.

    • Now that is an excellent idea.  Not only does it rid the world of unwanted celebrities minefields but is first class entertainment.

  3. I forgot to mention some survivalist  program  where some nut case guy is dropped down in the middle of some fake jungle and eats slugs.   Come to find out him spends his evenings in a Holiday Inn, not even an Express type, but the full nine yards type with a fucking bed and running water, dining on steak and potatoes. Again, WHY do I even have a tv.?  Miss Pat likes PBS, so there's my answer.  My choice is not to watch the damn thing.  Fat chance.  GD…do you think you have struck a sore spot with me here?  And did I mention the  collector shows where some dumb ass has 80 cats and 40 dogs?   Never mind…………..(bugged eyed and foaming at the mouth)……

    • Hah!  Herself is big into the Hoarder programmes at the moment.  At least it gives her the incentive to keep her shed tidy.

  4. Sounds great GD. Could there be a part for the ones voted off, before they are sent to the streets to fend for themselves in their bright orange boiler suits where the Public get to pelt the buggers with all manner of crap. Put them in stocks and giv'us a go…..please…..just for five minutes.
