Motion picture (both TV and film) have been steadily progressing further and further beyond the norms ever since they were invented. Before Hitchcock,
films were prohibited from being released if they so much as showed a toilet, literally.
Remember when Big Brother was such a massive thing? How there were massive debates about privacy and decency? Well, BB is common now, so common that
people are bored of it, and TV stations are pushing limits further out.
There will literally be no end, no point at which people stop and go, 'Woah, that's enough,' because we are introduced to it gradually.
Dystopian sci-fi usually tells of television programs where people are killed on air and such. No doubt this will one day be the case, and there will
be protests, perhaps only slightly more than there will be for this new reality show, but not too much more, as people will have been conditioned into
not being effected.
Could you imagine a show like this being accepted before Survivor/Big Brother was ever aired?
And need I remind you that live shows of people getting mauled by animals and being forced to fight to the death have already happened.
