I hate reality T.V. The main purpose I watch television is to get away from reality, not closer to it. Although, most of the time, it's scripted. Not literally, more like, they tape over and over until they can piece together what they want. But yes, over all, reality T.V. sucks ass.

Anyone who finds the latest fad of reality TV shows entertaining, frankly wants their brain washing out with bleach.

It's scraping the bottom of the bottom barrel of banality, and is taking valuable airtime away from more creative/original/artistic/traditional sources of entertainment.

I say, bring back plate-spinning!

They're cheap, nasty, and legion. Oh, how I hate them. The really sad thing is when people in them get their own fanbase, which leads to terrible things like "celebrity" status, and Autobiographies.

And, yes, the shows do feature 'real' people (scraped from the bottom of societies rubbish bins), but they are placed in highly artificial environments. Anyone would consider these programs a representation of reality needs to become familiar with the Hisenberg <sp?> uncertainty principle. It doesn't just apply to molecular physics, you know.

I truly think that reality TV is pointless. I mean, it's pretty bad when you turn on your TV and "Celebrity Spelling Bee" is on (keep in mind though, it's FOX).

"Stars"? Yeah right. Evan Marriot from "Joe Millionare" is in commercials and at awards shows. That doesn't really make him a star. I think that Hollywood is just humoring him. And, if you notice, on the two commercials I've seen him in (one for KFC and one for Ragu) he's pretty much making an even bigger fool out of himself.

I have seen the final on There Something About Marian:

Marian told all the guys including the winner that she really a guy. The winner completely shocked when he heard the news. You could see that he wasnít happy. The other guys were just laughing their heads off. It was like that they were relieved that they were the winner.

The price was £10 grand and a date with Marian. The winner didnít want the price because he felt guttered and embarrassed about it. He said that Marian lied to him and the other guys from the start and he said that she/he shouldnít of done that from the start. I am watching the uncut version right now.

I agree 100% with that, and add that all reality are rigged, and even that doesn't help to make it more interesting.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

I'll tell you what I hate? Everyone jumping on the bandwagon and saying they hate reality tv. Some shows are actually alright. Ok, so Big Brother is just plain boring now, and so are a number of other reality shows, but they aren't all like that. Average Joe, the first series... what a laugh that was. Seriously, I loved that show.

My dad watches Survivor. He claims it's because "it's so stupid it's funny" but I think he just won't admit to me that he actually likes it. I don't find it very entertaining.

Eugh, recently started seeing adverts for the next Big Brother on C4, they're doing the one-second BB eye thing.

On Alex's point, some reality TV is ok, if you've ever seen "Faking it", it is reality TV, but it's not the same sort of reality TV as BB or Survivor.

I totally agree! Why can't we have more science fiction, Futurama and great comedies like Malcolm in the Middle!
When will they learn that its quality that matters?

Has anybody been watching Hells Kitchen? I find it really good and I always like it when Gordon the chef blows his fuse. The funny bit has just happened when Vic Reeves ask his if he can have two fried eggs and a bread and Gordon told him to fuck off. I was laughing.

If reality TV has taught me anything it's that there is a world outside of TV. And I can experience it myself rather than watching it from the comfort of my living room.

Frankly, as long as I had an hours worth of TV worth watching a week I would be happy. But I don't even get that, so instead of bitching about how my TV time is being taken away from me, I do something useful like play in a band or post on a message board. Sometimes I even speak to human beings.

It's going to be hard to avoid Big Brother and Hell's Kitchen at the same time.

Seriously, who watches this crap? Big Brother is going down the pan (Don't make me try and explain how it can) as they have to introduce the new "evil" twist.

Hell's Kitchen is a load of crap, why does a chef swearing his head off count as entertainment?

And when Reality TV takes over and is all that's on, where will they find celebrities to put on the celebrity versions? If everyone on TV is a "person" in reality TV, who's a celebrity? In a way, it's removing one evil from TV.

You think you British folk have it bad?

We get all your crappy soaps and reality TV rubbish broadcast on our networks too, sometimes even the same episodes at exactly the same time on two different channels!!  mad
I often see Eastenders or Corination St. or that Hells Kitchen shite twice when channel surfing!

I am proud, yes PROUD to say I've never seen a single episode of any Reality show. Hey if I want reality I'm going outside, I watch TV to get AWAY from reality,why can't those TV execs figure that out??? I haven't been able to avoid knowing what they are about though,they usually are the topic of discussion the next day at work,for like hours at a time. I guess it beats thinking about work,...maybe.

I watched Big Brother last night. Oh my god some of the new people were hilariously funny. I especially laughed some hard when this guy called Jason came out of the car only in his bow tie and his leopard skin thong. Plus one of them is a transsexual too. Her name is Nadia

Oh and there this lesbian named Kitten who cause trouble at the start looking for her girlfriend and snogging her face off.

I think this BB is going to be good.

And i thought they were going so low that no-one could even bear to watch this utter shite. It's going to be 10 weeks on annoyance seeing "XYZ happens in the Big Brother house" all over the papers and attempting to avoid it in all ways, shapes and forms.

Seriously Juliet, i'm not doing this to flame or attack you, but for your own good, don't watch Big Brother!

Yea, i know people can choose what they want on TV, but this sort of trash is below the line of "acceptable"

I think the word "Reality" in Reality TV should be replaced with "Voyeuristic Attempted Controversy".

...or just "Rubbish".
