I'm talking about the "new" reality TV stuff:

 

Survivor

Bachelor

Trading Spouses

Fear Factor

Who's Your Daddy?

The Apprentice

The Contender

Roommates from the ButtPlanet Galaxy

 

 

It seems like you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some new contrived phoney "nothing real about it" reality TV show. :doh:

 

I don't get the allure. I hate them. I think they're mindless drivel. The term "reality TV" is a misnomer - they're scripted and people are manipulated by the situations they are put in.

 

IMO there are only a few true "reality" TV shows - Cops, which is the original reality TV show, and World's Scariest Police Chases.

 

The biggest difference between the latter and the former is that in the latter, events and situations are not being created solely for the camera. The camera may be capturing events as they unfold, but by and large the participants do not know they are on film.

 

Reality TV? A trend that must die... :brutal_36:

Even though you're right....I still watch them. I enjoy them...because I look at them as intertainment, not necessarily that they are based on 'reality'.

I think all this "reality" TV is just total garbage. Like Dan said, it's anything but reality. It's the most contrived, scripted stuff on TV now. It's shows like these that have me watching and enjoying channels I never thought when I was younger I'd ever watch- Discovery, A&E, History Channel, instead of network TV.

Trading Spaces is about as much reality t.v. as I can handle. It doesn't hurt that Paige Davis is such a cutie...

We don't have the exact same programs over here, but a lot of things that are quite similar. I hate them! Annoying stuff. And you didn't even mention all the American Idol stuff. We've had different shows called Starmaker, Idols, Idols 2 and now we get Be A Movie Star... I'm so tired of all these people who think they are talented, but are obviously not, and still they are offended when the jury tells them they are garbage... Never new that there were so many dumb people out there...

Yep, same here. The only other one that ever held my interest is My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee. That one was quite hilarious.

 

I enjoyed the hell outta that show!!!

I'm going to say that I hate reality tv now. use to watch a few but now not so much. Hells Kitchen every now and again but not much else. even got out of watching Idol this past time. Reality tv has hurt tv overall. BUT TNT does have some of the best shows on tv right now.

Yep, I love it. Just like with "normal TV" there is far, FAAAAAR more garbage than good stuff but I generally prefer reality TV to "normal TV" about 100% of the time. :)

 

'Survivor' is the best show ever. Love this trashy 'True Beauty' show they're showing in Australia at the moment too. Anyone who said reality TV was excellent TV would be a dickhead, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. But what is good on TV anyway? It certainly isn't all this crime/hospital/lawyer bullshit.

If they were REAL reality and not scripted I might watch some of them. They have good premises though.

Yeah mean to say you think 'Survvior' and 'The Amazing Race' and the like are scripted?

"Ice Road Truckers" is a cool one. (Those f*ckers are crazy!! You couldn't PAY me enough $$ to do their job!)

 

And though I question how "real" its "reality" is, I enjoy an occasional "Gene Simmons Family Jewels."

 

Oh, and "Hell's Kitchen" freakin' rules. I wish I were as rich and powerful as Gordon Ramsey so I could be a complete and total obnoxious a**hole to everyone and yet people would still line up for the chance to work for me.

    • Yeah it starts off very good then tails off round midway...but the defs have potential and judging by the new tunes could fulfil it...fingers crossed
    • And mine still hasn't been sent...quality service right there  too late to get a refund? lol
    • Yeah Badd Boyz is very good,would be my fav of the three...I really like the Platinum Overdose albums but I know where you're coming from,I also prefer their more melodic/glammy/sleazy side to the metal type stuff
    • Here's what it was for me, I mostly voted on familiarity: 1. I'll be honest, I didn't know who either of these singers were.  Of the two I've only heard music from Harem Scarem so it was Hess for me 2. I like Coverdale's voice more than Tyler's 3. I voted Michaels since I've only heard a handful of Enuff Z'nuff songs and I listen to a lot of Poison.  With such a limited sample size this might change when I hear more Z'nuff but for right now it has to be Michaels 4. Haven't heard a lot of Mason so I voted Jani.  As far as I'm concerned Jani is the full package when it comes to singer-songwriters, he's an absolute Legend 5. Of all of these I feel like this is the least fair comparison, they don't sound even remotely alike to me.  While Pearcy isn't a phenomenal vocalist in the traditional sense, he's so much more distinct in my opinion.  I think Phil's voice could get lost in the shuffle, but when Pearcy sings you KNOW it's Pearcy which is arguably more important in some cases 6. Haven't heard Queensryche with La Torre, so Tate it is 7. Bon Jovi is my favorite band of all time, come at me 8. Same with Tate, I've only heard Great White with Russell so Russ it is 9. I like both versions of Danger Danger for different reasons, but I have to go with Poley for this one 10. Haven't heard anything from Heart I don't think, so Elliot all the way 11. Haven't heard much of Cold Sweat or Cathey, but I do love that first Lynch Mob album. Point Logan! 12. Once again had to look these guys up, but this time I've actually heard one full album from each.  I assumed Bulen was Keeling, but that aside this was probably the closest one for me.  Ended up going for Baton Rouge but if you asked me in a few weeks that might change We should do this again sometime, maybe with guitarists/drummers/bassists/etc?
    • Your gonna make me do this aren't you? OK fine, well should've been vaxed, guess it serves ya right, you right wing Nazi piece of shit, why don't you go back to Hitler and check in, I knew your were fac, and your cis, all you fascists think your better then the law, it has to do with your cis gender, you cant help it, born in the coat of missing pigment your white supremacist privilege just eeks out,
    • to keep my reply simple, I basically agree with Geoff except the following - JBJ > Kip Having seen both live I prefer JBJ. Talking in their prime here Paul Laine > Ted Love Ted but Paul is far superior and superb live, one of the best I've seen. 
    • Actually I dont, Ive been conversing with Jinx Dawson!!!!!!! if anyone can touch that, I'll dress in drag and sing Wake Me Up B4 You GO Go! backwards!! if there was such thing, she would be goddamn key master, lol
    • Merry Xmas buddy, I knew some happy xmas tunes would perk you right up!!
