Maryedith on Dance Moms: Actually, I don’t think other reality shows are as fake as this one. If they are, they are covering up way better. I don’t think I’m going to see Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel walking hand in hand down the street any time soon, for instance. I think the parents on Toddlers and Tiaras really give a shit whether their kids win those pageants, and I think the pageants really do occur. Dance Moms goes beyond the usual editing manipulation to the point where it’s not possible to discuss it without feeling like a tool. I might as well watch WWF.
NikkiHughes on Bethenny Ever After: “Next week: They’re stuck on the boat, soooo… very suspenseful, Bravo.” – hahahahhaa
Maryedith on The Walking Dead: Although I love Mad Men, when I see the ads for it I think, “You bastards took my zombie budget!” If you give your budget to one show it will take your network down, no matter how popular it is. Just like The Sopranos.
Featherhead on Survivor One World: Is it wrong that when Dolton had the ball during the challenge that I was screaming at the TV – “Drown him, Drown him!!!!”??
Derek Hazelton on Survivor: When Alicia and Colton were forming the new alliance, my brother (who doesn’t watch Survivor) came into the room and asked me, “Who is the sinister homo and the girl with the saggy tits?”
Notwithoutmytv on Once Upon A Time: So Red is a werewolf–is that the explanation why she always dresses like she’s going straight to ComiCon from work? (I’m not complaining, mind you–Red gives Emma a run for her money in the dreamy department, but dressing like a $2 whore while taking orders for the Hungry Lumberjack Breakfast Platter makes people wonder…)
Itchy on American Idol: Methinks American Idol would get more love here if they changed into a Real Housewives singing competition.
LAC on Top Chef Reunion: ….Oh, Hag, if I tell you to go fart yourself into oblivion, would that be a death threat? Yes, it is stressful and tiring competition, but being a cooze and carrying a grudge through several episodes is not the way to go. And the “I keeps it real” meme of the reality show participant is about as tiresome as “I’m not here to make friends”
NikkiHughes on The Amazing Race: I actually *honestly* feel like people watching TAR that don’t know Boofles are being cheated. They REALLY should know them from BB. It makes it SO much better! We’re awesome! – Wait, why are you being mean to me?! (fake cry – fake cry) – I quit! – Baby don’t quit! – You’re so mean! – I’m sorry! – We suck – (then they/she wins) – WHOO HOO, we’re awesome – I love you SO much! UGH
LAC on Million Dollar Listing New York: Ryan is such like douche that he should sue Massengil for copyright infringement. And that “date” with tits McTrainer was nauseating. You know that afterwards, they will lie there, her hoping her fake orgasm past muster and him checking to see if his arm hair grows back. I still do not envy him dealing with that pack rat. There are some issues there that therapy and thorazine might need to address.
