Half-baked reality.

So last night, we are perusing the tv schedule, trying to find something to watch. What a bunch of worthless nonsense on the television. I am so tired of the cheap-ass, so-called reality television shows. For an example last night we were presented with:

Celebrity Big Brother, a show with a bunch of players that not only would not make the A, B, or C list of any party, but they probably couldn't be trusted to park the cars.

What Not to Wear Holiday Special, a show about two snippy twits; one anorexic, and the other needing to be beside me on that treadmill, showing other women what clothes suit them best and managing to crush any self-esteem the poor women may have before they volunteered to be ripped apart by these two harpies.

Celebrity Fitness Videos: Not Fit for TV?, pretty self-explanatory. I'm sure that the celebrities that made the videos are thanking the media gods for promoting them. They are probably thinking finally one or two will get sold.

This is a sample of the shows that were on last night.

It was a long wait until the last two episodes of Lost came on at ten o'clock. That's the last two episodes of the first season of Lost. So if any of you from the States or here in the UK who have pirated tapes and are in the process of watching the second season's Lost...DO NOT WRITE ME TO TELL ME WHAT IS GOIN' ON! I just went over to here, and supposedly the second season of Lost will be starting in the Spring, we don't have that long to wait. Wondering why Poland gets the new season in January! Poland!! Now I just have to refrain from peeking at the spoilers.

Did I mention that the second season of Desperate Housewives is starting next Wednesday night? Life is grand.

I don't get those shows either, but my wife seems to love them. She said something about that kind of programming making her feel better about herself.

No worries about my spoiling Lost for you, I don't watch it. But I've heard people are really into it. I just couldn't get into it.

Telly - good God albleedingmighty, it's so crap.....
ITV should have there licence or whatever taken off them - it's just a means to get people to phone in to vote - and they get a rake off.

I hate reality TV - it always involves the humiliation of sad, inadequate people and their obsession with getting on the box.

As regards to 'Lost' - our telly doesn't work very well,the brightness has gone - everything is quite dark.... and as most of the action in 'Lost' happens at night - we couldn't see a thing......'Lost'? - most definitely.

the last episode of Lost was telecast here back in late nov or summat. i didn't pay much attention though a mighty favourite amongst my family and generally wee islanders. soz Alice, i see it a rather pointless exercise for the survivors of the crash to go round in circles trying to kill each other off. what's the next season like? them eating one another? that's more like it :D

Take those shows, multiply by five, and you get all the crap that's on U.S. television. In fact, FOX is starting a new cable channel devoted strictly to reality television. Oh, boy.
