FridayQ: Reality

Posted on Friday, July 8th, 2005

Dave!Your thoughts on TV reaity shows... love them or loathe them? Pretty much loathe them, as they take up space that could have been used by excellent, thought-provoking shows that end up cancelled.

Your favorite TV reality show (or the one you are able to tolerate the most). The only show I will not miss is the original reality show: Survivor. I used to download torrents of the UK version of Big Brother, but it's getting more and more difficult to find torrent feeds. I don't watch any others now that Paris Hilton isn't doing The Simple Life, and American Chopper is stuck in a rut.

Your least favorite TV reality show (or the one you find the stranegst/stupidest). There are too many. I loathe American Idol with a passion, so that's probably the most obvious to me. But now David E. Kelley (respectable creator of shows like Ally McBeal and Boston Legal) is sullying himself with a mockery of the law in his upcoming reality courtroom show The Law Firm. I expect that will sink reality TV to even new depths of suckage (though he would have to go a long way to out-skank that bitch Judge Judy).

FQ TV: Invent your own TV reality show. Would you appear on it? I'd like a show that would give me a million dollars and follow me around as I attempt to spend it all in a single week. We could call it Million Dollar Dave, and I would absolutely appear in it.

    You can get UK Big Brtoher stuff from if I remember rightly. Just in case you need a dose of reality TV.

    Is the movie The Dish?
    Ironically the answer to another puzzle on another blog a couple of weeks ago..

    Wow. I thought Nova was shut down!

    Yep, the quote is from “The Dish” which is a movie I love, and have seen maybe a dozen times. 🙂

    No, Dave, don’t go near Big Brother 6 in the UK. It sucks ass big time this year!! I have given up on it. It’s the only reality TV I watch and now that has even abandoned me!!

    Regarding survivor being the original. The dutch big brother started in ’99. Survivor started in 2000, and the real world predates all of them as it started in 92 i think.
