Reality check

I feel like society had a very brief window in which it could have stopped “reality” TV from taking off. Back when it first started, if everyone had just ignored it, it might never have gone anywhere. It would have been relegated to a forgotten TV series or two, rather than evolving into a whole genre.

Unfortunately, this was never going to happen, for two reasons:

  1. The infancy of the Internet
  2. “Reality” TV showed boobs.

So next time you are cursing the 3rd ad in a row begging you to vote for some alleged celebrity* to stay in the jungle, just remember: you had a chance, and you blew it. Now stop reading this blog and go back to your porn and dreams of TV shows that might have been.


*Celebrity (noun). Washed up actor or sports star you have never heard of.
