I've been mulling over the concept of reality TV and how to compose a rant about it for a while now... Its coming sooner or later...

My favorite right now, is Superstar USA, which is exactly like American Idol, except secretly they're trying to find people who really really suck at singing...

I admit I've been suckered into a few since Survivor 1, but the newer network shows seem to be getting much more focused on humiliation and outrageousness, and I'm not into that. I'm pretty much expecting to see ones like Gladiator soon, where it's fight tigers to the death and stuff like that.

woah! I'd be so into that... I mean, not for just like the heck of it or anything, but if they had like a twenty dollar prize or something, I'd be all over it. :-)

The other one I think of is, well, I think there was a movie about it, but I read a short story in middle school called The Most Dangerous Game about hunting men for sport. That's the one I think they're moving towards.

yeah, there are a few movies of that concept... The Running Man is one of them...

If you've never seen it most defintely check out Series 7: The Contenders

It's about the logical violent culmination of reality shows... 5 random people chosen by SSN lottery are each given guns and told to kill the other contestants, last one alive wins. The only way out is by being dead or by winning 5 consecutive seasons.

That's a show I could watch. I haven't really watched much reality TV mostly because it started with a show called "survivor" but nobody had to die.

That sounds almost just like one of the fake ads in Grant Theft Auto 3, hmm...
