Funny thing is, I like Survivor and DWTS too. Funny how you picked two of the only three reality shows I watch. The rest are crap. (the third is So
You Think You Can Dance).
- Watched this since day 1. It's a great study on strategy, human relations, survival in the wild, and the challenges are fun to
- My wife and I used to take ballroom dance lessons, and enjoy seeing stars from our generation doing something different. Granted, I'm
usually reading a book through all of the inane crap, or just FF until the actual dance numbers. Plus, hot Russian gals in skimpy outfits = good TV.
Unlike most viewers, I could tell you the dance they are doing just based on the beat of the music (and I can somewhat intelligently judge the
dance). In fact, I can usually tell you the exact score each judge will give a contestant.
So You Think You Can Dance
- Again, the interest in dance. (and hot gals in skimpy outfits). The dancing is incredible on this show though, it
really is. The live show that travels, is even better (haven't missed a one yet). In fact, on the last tour, I was close enough to get Janine's sweat
However, I'm just as likely to watch a documentary on the Discovery or History channel, or shows like Fringe, V, The Event, Big Bang Theory,
, etc. (and yes, I miss LOST
terribly). I was a Lostie from day 1 also. Some things you just know are going to be good.
I've always been into True Blood
(even read the books), and I'm getting into Game of Thrones
does seem like the only promising one, but we'll see.
Crakeur, Breaking In
is pretty good, if you haven't seen this one yet. I think it actually made it and was renewed, but not sure. (EDIT-Nope,
it was axed too, dammit!) We just got into this one (and it's pretty decent). Christian Slater is a sadistic boss of a security company. The kid from
Reaper is the hacker specialist, Lex from Smallville (though you'd have to look close to tell) is the "face" man, an Olivia Munn look-alike is the
"face" gal, and other assorted characters make it an interesting show.
[b[Alcatraz is the latest J.J. Abrams series to be picked up. It's about a bunch of wardens and prisoners who disappeared mysteriously, only to
now show up in the modern day. Haven't seen anything really on this, but at least the genre is promising.
