Reality shows. What's your opinion on them?

Postby Hermionefan5 » Tue Apr 17, 2007 12:22 am

I really hate them, except for a select few: Little People, Big World, What Not To Wear.

Yes, some really annoy me. They try to draw more attention to the problem like Extrordinary People,rather than draw attention from it.
Dyspraxia is me I would never change that :)

I just hate the ones with people like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. Those girls drive me CRAZY! I just don't like a lot of things about them and I hope that they can see someday that they are not being very good. I'm not trying to say that I do things right all of the time, but I don't believe those girls are good role models for anyone.

Ok. I am going to admit it. I am a sucker for Wife Swap and Holiday Showdown, *hangs head in shame* Not Big Brother though...but "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" can be quite interesting when they have to eat kangaroo testicles (aren't i evil :twisted: )

I don't watch much TV, but reality TV shows are rubbish in my opinion. Particularly big brother.

It's kind of bad that reality tv is taking over because the real actors and actresses aren't getting to have as many shows! I personally like the fake shows better (as in Gilmore Girls, Law and Order, Ugly Betty), but they are expensive to produce and it's much cheaper to make a reality show. You don't have to pay the actors as much and they have cheaper sets (generally).

There is nothing real about reality TV. It's the most artificial thing I've ever heard of. I don't understand why it gets so much coverage in the newspapers.

True. Reality tv is totally fake. I was just striving to distinguish from the better, more traditional shows like Gray's Anatomy, and "reality" shows like "The Simple Life." :) Gosh, I really do hate "The Simple Life." It's the worst of them all because of Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie.
