Joe & Theresa.... Jail?
Are you asking should they make a reality series about them in jail?
If so- my opinion is fuck no. But it wouldn't surprise me if they did.
Real jail mates of the fed pen
Fraud, tax stuff, bankruptcy.
Real housewives of nj
She got 15 months starting 1/5/15; he got 41 months starting when she gets out.
That is a novel approach; relay incarceration i.e. punishing the perps without totally harming the kids.
I like this concept.
All people from "reality" TV should be shipped to and forced to inhabit a 5 sq km island until only one remains... and I mean all of them... from the cast of the first Real World to series 4 of Big Brother to Pawn Stars to... yeah - just all of them.
They may as well make a show out of it, They make a show out of everything else.anyway. Why not?
I say get rid of ALL reality tv and bring back the variety shows.
Reality tv has always seemed like a scam to me. The networks hire sub par actors for these ridiculous shows and the networks rake in the profits.
Am I wrong in thinking so?
Carol burnett... Yep...
So if I manage to get myself signed with a network to put on a variety show (in the style of Dean Martin, Carol Burnett, &c) I can count on you two at least to watch, right?
Just make sure you have plenty of pink anus humor. 'Cause that shit's timeless..
I'll make it a point to do so... and it will be the most widely broadcast inside joke of all time.
And thanks blue eyes ... Great clip
You're welcome 12barblues. It's always been one of my favorites.
Those four were just hilarious together... I mean, look at that skit.. Pretty lame content... Yet I couldn't stop laughing as I watched it..
I have had an extreme dislike for absolutely every "reality" show since way back when "COPS" kickstarted the genre, and I have never understood the appeal.
Because I was dumb enough to waste a ridiculous amount of money and time attending film school, I know so much about movie/TV production that I can't watch anything the same way I did before. There are very few types of shows/movies that I have take issue with, and "reality" shows are by far the most infuriating and stupefying. They are just as painstakingly scripted/rehearsed/staged/directed as shows like "Star Trek", and are equally or even less representative of actual real-life. People have, in fact, invested everything they had in going into businesses in those shows and lost every penny because the reality is nothing like the "reality"; Storage Wars had a well-publicized example of this.
All "reality" shows are overflowing overflowing with clear examples of every single technique and tricks for fictional audio-visual storytelling. The term "reality" for these shows only refers to the style of storytelling - a pseudo-realistic portrayal of "regular" people (not good actors) typically in mundane, everyday (thus more relatable) locations. It's the same as how movies like Cloverfield and Blair Witch are made to look like home movie footage filmed by the characters to make it a more subjective, immersive viewing experience, or how some locations - abandoned asylum, isolated hotel, ect. - are typical settings for horror movies because they are ominous and instantly create a mood.
So watching a "reality" show has no more merit or relevance than Transformers 4, the only difference is the "reality" show will be intentionally boring to appear more realistic. The way I see it, if it's all fiction then whichever tells the most interesting and unique story is the obvious choice - and watching a boring show with no story or structure, and every episode is exactly the same is more pointless than any language has a word for.
That's my personal view, though, and I have have pretty unusual views more often than not, so I'm not saying what anyone should or shouldn't watch...just throwing out a conversation piece.
