Coming back to the topic at hand which is reality TV and not ways of trying to bump off a rich relative, everyone has at some stage or the other seen a reality show, even under duress, whether it be Big Brother, Survivor or Donald Trumps Hair a.k.a The Apprentice. All our lifes have been touched by this so called "reality" (which at times seems very scripted), but Reality TV has taken it to far now with HULK HOGAN yes HULK HOGAN of WWE fame having his very own reality show called, "Hogan Knows Best".
Now could someone please tell me what the hell would be interesting about watching the daily antics of a famous wrestler, unless every five minutes Hogan rips of his t-shirt, flexes his muscles and proceeds to wack his wife, children and the postman over the head with a steel chair, now thats entertainment. The ridiculous reality reel doesnt end there, there are a string of shows which have no point, The Osbournes being a fine example where the networks only draw card is when ozzy swears just about everything on the show including a sandwich in a very inaudible british accent. There is even a reality show called "Wife Swap" where husbands swop their wives, yes they swop their wives for God sake (though looking at some of their wives I don't blame them).
Most of these shows have no entertainment value except perhaps if you want to have a good laugh at the expense of these reality showparticipants, which could just aswell be replaced by a ring tailed lemur or your garden variety fern. I wonder what the next big thing in television will be but for the moment the Reality TV wave is riding high and I for one is definately tired of this ride.
Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it. Alfred Hitchcock (1899 - 1980)Kuwabara, Kuwabara
