Alternative title: the one where I rant
Sitting down in front of the television to unwind at the end of a long tiring day is not an unwelcome idea. But the unwinding does not happen, unless it is something that I enjoy watching. A good movie, some music, a travel or food programme or something that explores nature are all welcome.
What I cannot
~absolutely cannot stand~
are reality shows which appear to show aimless chaotic lifestyles of people.
Often, these shows seem infested with dim-witted bimbos who don't seem to have an ounce of intelligence or talent
and just catching a glimpse of some of these airheads as I flick the channels
is enough to annoy me.
But then, the b.s. doesn't stop there, does it?
Walk into any newsagent or stop by a magazine stand,
and they are there again,
often with huge headlines that seem to confirm their mindlessness
~for example, claiming that her dream job, if not for the fame of reality TV, would be to be a make up artist for crime scene investigators~
But these shows won't be on TV unless there was a demand for it, right?
I do not understand the craze for reality TV,
except to think of it as some form of voyeurism.
Tell me ...
do you watch any reality shows?
~and please don't tell me that the antics of the KK sisters are among them~
