To me, reality shows suck. Normally, we watch TV to ESCAPE reality, but not to watch more reality. Problem is…….what is on now doesn’t even qualify AS reality!
Storage Wars – Scripted nonsense, staged lockers, and way too much over-hyped drama.
Pawn Stars – Shop is smaller, 60% is History channel merchandise, you never see the stuff from the show in the shop.
Operation Repo – All scenes are re-enactments.
World’s Worst Tenants – Re-enactments of encounters
Granted, SOME shows are most likely reality-based, such as the show Solitary that was on Fox Reality Channel, Exit that was run short-lived on “The Channel formerly known as Sci-Fi”, American Restoration, and Counting Cars, because they show stuff actually getting DONE. If it’s staged, re-enacted, or just all-around FAKE, then it’s so not worth my time.
I get enough over-hyped information on the news channels as it is, and often times, you can’t even trust that IT’S real either.
I think I just need to go out to movies more often and stay away from the reality shows. Why? It’s just not real.
