    How do you feel about reality shows?

    Since reality shows seem to dominate the airways, would you rather go back to the typical drama/comedy/news show that used to be in fashion?  OR, do you love reality shows?  If so, which one(s)?

    I pray for the day when the last one gets cancelled! The vast majority of "reality" shows are not.....real!!....they are mostly scripted. When is society going to stand-up and say enough??

    Hate them.

    The way things are portrayed are far from the 'real type of events' of a typical day.

    I absolutely hate a good majority of them. There are a few out there that are really well done, but most of them, IMO, are trash. Can't wait until the day that people stop watching them.

    A very small minority of reality shows pique my interest because of their big idea, but most of them make me seriously consider that America is going insane or dumbed down by the Corporate Party media.

    Beauty and the Geek was one that made me curious. It got old fast, though.

    My wife had me check out My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance. An interesting study in human behavior.

    I prefer smart drama, thought-provoking science fiction, delightfully creative fantasy, and action films that make you think. I like educational videos and documentaries that reveal things of life and the universe.

    I have found, though, living 5 years outside of the States, that the Corporate Party media is heavily biased. I had heard this, before, but hadn't believed it. Now, it's as plain as day. Americans are being hypnotized by experts while their precious country is being dismantled. The Constitution of the United States is already halfway gone.

    YouTube has saved me. True, there's a lot of garbage on YouTube, but some is quite enlightening or at least worthy of further investigation.

    These 2 short videos, for instance, show how America's voting process has been eliminated, and both halves of the Corporate Party convention no longer adhere to Roberts Rules of Order:

    I have learned how the Power Elite, like the Rockefellers, are threatening our very existence.

    And how 9/11 was an inside job (based on science and logic). One YouTube video led me to the website of scientists, engineers and architects who have studied the facts of 9/11 and found the Bush "conspiracy theory" sorely lacking.

    And to end on a note of levity, here's 5 minutes of 9/11 humor:

    I love the stuff that makes you think.

    And here's one I created on scientific evidence in support of Atlantis. Yes, the modern equivalent of "blasphemy" isn't so evil or wrong, after all.

    I guess I put "reality" shows into a couple of different categories. I enjoy Survivor, sometimes Amazing Race kind of shows.  But shows like the Kardashians, those Jersey shows, etc. are just wallowing in...well...crap.

    I think the current trend of reality shows is a sad comment on how desperate we are to be entertained and I include myself - if I sit and watch one of them, I get hooked and then I feel sad, guilty and foolish.

    I really hate the trend and wish it would pass - but as long as the producers of those shows are raking in the dough, we are in for more of the same.

    Susan......."Reality" shows are anything but.   How did they start anyway?...who thought up the first one and why, for the love of heaven have they multiplied like rabbits?   Honestly, "enough" in this case is TOO much.  I have checked out a few of them, maybe once and frankly, I just don't get it.
    They have no great purpose, they tell no wonderful story, there is ZERO talent involved, and most of them focus on the very worst of human nature.   
    If this is honestly what the public seems to want and enjoy......We've truly gone to the dogs.   If absolutely need be, one or two would suffice.....but must there be one or two every single night of the week??

    Don't want to sound offensive but they are bloody awful, most are very trashy. My wife watches them and I can hear the brain cells slowly dying. Jersey Snore is the worst one of all, followed by Mob Wives. Doesn't speak to highly about human nature if these are the top shows on the air, very scary.

    Most of the reality shows are less of reality and more of fabrication. Only the singing and dancing ones somehow I watch and enjoy. Good question

    I think most of reality shows are scripted. I'm not fond watching it.

    i despise reality shows, they consist of fake people who are relatively stupid. Thats my opinion obviously. The like of British reality shows like " big brother ", jersey shore and the rest are full of pure idiots and why are they picked? because they will clash with other contestants/ participants which then will " entertain " the audience.

    I think they're stupid, scripted and totally not real.

    I have not watched one full episode of any reality show and the most I have ever watched would be the first five minutes, when the concept first started, and the last five minutes when I am waiting for the news to come on the air.
