If reality TV is fake then they must hire the best actors in the world. I like to watch the apprentice actually. I like watching people get fired.


Kari, what are you talking about? Sorry to say this, but eh, you sound like your drunk or something.:/

I can't stand reality shows.

It's like watching a soap opera.
While lying down on a bed of nails.

"American cinema and television is better than anything you probably watch like BBC"

ummm no. for the following reasons:

The Office, One Foot in the Grave, Blackadder, Peter Kay, Only Fools and Horses, Spooks, Father Ted, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python, and there must be a load more i've missed out.

the only yank TV worth watching is 24, and Band of Brothers (shot entirely on location in England) so, in summary, i beg to differ.

I love heaps of American and British shows about the only countries shows I can't stand are from my own, Australia. God, we churn out some crap!!!

 
Show me the power child,
I'd like to say,
That I'm down on my knees today,
Gives me the butterflies,
Gives me away,
'Til I'm up on my feet again,
I'm feeling outshined.

The band of brothers were also my favourite..
That time america was good and not ruled by
evil dictator..
(i meant time of WWII)
And there are of course some american movies
which i like.
(like terminator, full metal jacket, platoon, etc..)
Mostly i watch finnish programs and sometimes british
comedys..
American comedy is so bad that nobody would seriosly laugh at it...

Black Books, Pete - comes back next Thursday <-D

I've never enjoyed Reality TV. There are two types - the Big Brother type where it's more a storyline/soap with real people... Come to think of it, I don't mind those that much, although it's not what I would watch... but recently there's been a trend for "torture" shows, which I think also come under that heading - Fear Factor, I'm A Celebrity... things like that. It's hideous, what they make some people go through. A mystery that they agree to it.

Hey, some of the reality shows on MTV and Discovery Channel, like Flipped, Faking It, Junkyard Wars (if you consider that RT) and Punk'd are pretty damn good.

The rest is just evil crap. I'm suprised those dating shows are as famous as they are.

Reality TV is basically what entertainment has essentially evolved to by essentially showing regular shmucks what they'd like to see...ie...people like themselves on Tv...and of course, your sex, drama and action.

I think this eventually came along because alot of television shows, particularly sit-coms and dramas, played out situations that may have tried to mimic life, yet so artificial because it was played by actors...SOMEHOW reality TV is almost the opposite of this...ie unrealistic environments, desert islands, paradises, prison like households, with what seem to be regular everyday people as the actors...

...although that's still not it yet...and this is what confuses me most of all...alot of reality tv shows are just basically souped up game shows or documentaries!!!

Anyway...there have been some cool reality TV shows i've seen in my time...I remember one we had over here in Australia called the Mole. That was probably the pick of the bunch, cause it kept not only the contestants but the viewers guessing until the end.

Ah, yes, the Mole. That was a great one. The only RTV show I watched till the end. Too bad they didn't show any new seasons here, I guess Malaysians prefer simple sentimental crap like Survivor to it.
