I pretty much eschew all reality shows except Survivor and the two main Dancing ones (Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance).
Admittedly, the attraction to the dance shows is simply cute gals in skimpy outfits, but I like what I like...
For Survivor, I've watched it since the beginning, and it's fun to watch some contestants be crafty as hell, while others are just plain stupid in
their actions or decisions. It's a great voyeurism type show...like you are in on this little mini-world.
And I'm definitely against any show with "Jersey" in the title. I just don't get this whole thing. Having been to Jersey (once, and by
mistake...and my apologies if you are from there), I will NEVER ever want to go back.
My other beef, all the dang Crime shows. I have enough Drama in my life, I want escapism. Give me sitcoms like Big Bang Theory, or @#$% My Dad Says,
etc. If I want more serious stuff, I'll flip over the History and Learning channels for docs, etc. How many CSI's and Law and Orders do we really
need? (and why do they succeed?)
My wife, for instance, is a big fan of Law and Order SVU. This show is SO formulaic. Without fail, about 20 min in, they'll have "the guy", but of
course, there is still another half hour, so you KNOW it's the wrong guy...yadda yadda yadda....
