I absolutely hate reality television spin offs. I started this post by saying I hate reality television but then I realized that is not true. So much of television today is reality television and there are a few shows I do enjoy watching. How about you? Do you watch reality television? What shows do you enjoy watching? And which ones do you absolutely hate?
At the very top of my list is “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”. To be perfectly honest I have never, ever watched this show. The previews are enough to keep me away. Far away. And now as they are ramping up for the new season the previews are everywhere. Honey Boo Boo Smell O Vision and they are farting on television? Seriously? They need to draw the line somewhere. And the said thing is, is that the money people sit there dumbfounded and watch it the longer it will run.
Next is “Real Housewives of….” (name the city, I hate them all). All I can say is wow. I have only caught bits and pieces of each one and probably not even all of them but I truly do not understand how someone could actually sit down and watch a whole episode much less do it week after week. I have never seen such catty, nasty, foul mouthed women anywhere. And now they are everywhere.
Another one is “Fear Factor”. Now don’t get me wrong when this show first aired I thought it was fantastic. They actually walked people through their fears. One person was scared to death of bees. They put a bee suit on him and had him walk into a swarm of bees. It was all about people conquering their fears and being able to work though it. Now it is just nasty. Drinking worm milkshakes and submerging parts of your body into buckets of nasty bugs is just ridiculous.
My list could go on and on. What shows do you love? Which ones do you hate?
