After watching the finale of Dance War(t) (because truly, people, this whole season has just been a wart on the face of television history…welcome back, WRITERS), I was inspired to post about reality TV. I have not experienced much of it. But here’s my take on what I have seen:
Best Reality TV:
What Not to Wear – Clinton and Stacy have the best comebacks. I heart their SASS!
Dancing with the Stars – Tom Bergeron could possibly be the best reality host ever. He is a hoot. And I always love watching and pretending I could ever be that graceful.
Survivor – Isn’t this one of the first reality shows ever? I didn’t start watching until Season 8 (All Stars), but have watched every season since. Who’s your favorite? I have to go with Tom Weston and Ozzy.
Jon & Kate + Eight – Just found this one recently, but I love the give-and-take between Jon and Kate (though she can be a bit witchy at times).
Worst Reality TV (feel free to debate me on this):
Trading Spaces – Were those designers for real? I remember one episode where Doug turned someone’s bedroom into a “Prison of Love” with fake bars on the windows and faux painted concrete block walls. I wouldn’t even do that to a child’s room, much less an adult bedroom.
Big Brother – To be fair, I have only seen this show close-captioned while running on a treadmill at the gym, but it always seems like a bunch of whiners doing stupid stuff in a cartoon-y house.
The Bachelor, Age of Love, Flava of Love, any other show that attempts to find someone a mate by going on a bunch of short, shallow dates – Synopsis of all these shows = “Hey, you’re hot. Let’s go bungee jumping. I think I love you. And I love her..and her…and her…and her…and her…”
Take all my reviews with a grain of salt. I haven’t REALLY watched television since 1997, when I was addicted to Nick at Nite. The only TV I watch now is full episodes that can be viewed on the internet while I nurse or pump.
What are your favorites/not-so-favorites?
