Musings on 'reality' TV.


I 'accidentally' caught a bit of that 'Big Brother' on TV last night. I say accidentally because I could never actually sit down to watch this crap. What confuses me is how can anyone sit down to watch this crap? And enjoy it?
Who are these self-proclaimed celebrities in training anyway? And why is it that they all seem to possess some kind of androgenous look about them? Is that a requirement to appearing on the show? You have to be gay, act like you are gay, or just bisexual and to hell with standards.
Within seconds of watching these arseholes I was recoiling in horror. The only possible use I could see, from having these exhibitionist, spoilt-brat 'types' all in the one house, was that it would make it easy for the rest of us to get rid of them easily. Maybe they should let the public vote on who gets taken to the gallows next or something. I think it would be much better if; everyone in the house was given a gun and taught how to use it; only one person was a first-aider; rules are that you can only shoot the limbs or extremeties; last man/woman/thing standing gets to leave. Already the improvements are obvious.
These people don't deserve to have all the tabloid and even national news(!) attention that is thrown onto them! Well, OK they do deserve the tabloid shit but nothing else.
It used to be that, when they had this show on, the people would slowly become 'celebrity-like' over the course of the show. Then, when they left the house they would seemingly, become celebrities, albeit for a few months and then fade into non-existence.
Have you noticed how it has kind of gone full circle now?
We, the media hungry public, are so fucking pathetic that the first episode of a new series of this shit elicits massive publicity and full stories on each of the 'stars' which is what they fast become each day. No longer are they leaving the house competing with real celebs (you know, people who might have actually worked), no. They are fully fledged celebs whilst still in the fucking house. There are companies waiting to offer them contracts and the tabloids are fawning over the lastest tit model in the house and contesting each other over who will get her to 'bare all' in their newsrag first.
Fucking morons.
So, the contestants of Big Brother ARE the celebrity nowadays.
What happened?
Why are we getting so far down the hole of mediocrity that we don't have a gnats bollock of a chance of dragging ourselves back out of it?

Fuck Big Brother and Fuck the contestants.

Soon, I will stop watching TV altogether.

And I know it's fuck all to do with music!
and no, I am not homophobic.

I have practically stopped watching TV due to the dearth of decent new programs and the bombardment of reality TV shows. BB is the worst of the lot as C4 & E4 ditch/reschedule everything else in favour of watching some nonce sleeping.

I have the full Sky package, hundreds of channels of repeats, reality TV, and repeats OF reality TV! It's scary with so much choice how rare it is I find something worth watching.

Thanks for the feedback people. Those bastards at SKy..I was daft enough to buy into it a few years ago but, after the years contract kindly let them remove themselves from my living room. The thing is they are STILL sending me 'amazing offers' and invitations to re subscribe. I even phoned them and told them to remove my name but somehow it remains. Maybe they like me.

Hey there!

first of all, thanks a lot for your posts! Really great stuff (I am listening to Moonmadness now). I even had to pay the 20€ to Rapishare to be able to download all this stuff at will (well, yours and Chocoreve's... ).

And talking about TV reality shows - have you caught this Fear Factor thing? The absolutely disgusting, humiliating things they do just to get $50k and 15mins of fame? Aren't they the worst kind of whores or am I too uptight??

thanks for that. Interesting. Can't help thinking it is all too contrived though. The stunts are pathetic. Mind you, some of them seem like quite an easy way to earn the cash. It would be great to watch if they actually get hurt in the process of course. Maybe I'll download an episode just for the hell of it.
See? I am like everyone else...conditioned to this reality bollocks. hehe. No, I just get some sick enjoyment out of watching imbeciles hurt themselves in the name of greed & television.
