I remember watching season 2 of the real world, and then they did Road rules, and i ate that crap up, i think i watched Real World until they stopped making them pay for food...like the season after London maybe, probably season 5, i just tapped out on it. Road rules was even funnier, because they ALWAYS ran out of money.
Then they just fed them and had them get drunk every night. I'm not sure when the switch over began and every show was a reality show, but i certainly didn't expect it would happen back then.
And now, i don't think i watch a single one of the shows. I occasionaly watched Masterchef but swore it off when i determined the winners were fixed, and i loved the original kitchen nightmares (American version was too fake and not enough cooking for my tastes).
Still, some good non reality tv,all kinds of shows on hbo and showtime and Sons of Anarchy and Walking Dead.
Nothing's gonna happen without a warning
Gonna watch Hardcore pawn tonight no lie. Shut the FK UP!
I'm surprised people are still griping about this. Reality TV isn't going anywhere. Sure, I hate 99% of it but it's obvious that a lot of other people like it. I don't think there's much you can do to change others' tastes.
