Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

Okay, so I noticed we no longer have a discussion board for the reality shows like we used to. Quite frankly, I think American Idol is a yawner this year except for a couple of contestants. I do like the judges however. Have always loved Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr and J-Lo is very similar to Paula, but more intelligent IMO. Harry is the new Simon but much more likable and we know, at least I do as I'm a long-time fan, that Harry is super talented in his own right. Don't agree with half of the contestants they chose however.

But, I think Survivor is pretty interesting. This season they divided the survivors into 3 groups: The Brains, The Brawns and The Beauties. Not sure I agree with their selections but I find it funny that the Brains lost the first 2 immunity challenges and they seem anything but intelligent to me. One poor sport Brainy woman even poured out all their rice because she thought she was going home... yep... real brainy.

So.... I thought I would just start a discussion on all the reality shows going on now and if anyone wants to chat about them.

The Voice looks like they might have some good performers this season.

Who watches reality shows and which ones?

I have to admit they are my indulgence and my vice:

Survivor, The Voice, Big Brother, Top Chef, The Housewives of Beverly Hills (the only one I watch thankfully), Top Shot and America's Top Model. I gave up on Dance Moms... too stupid even for me. :D

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

My 2 "guilty pleasure" TV Reality shows are Mob Wives and Housewives of Bev Hills. I don't watch any other of the housewife shows, just Bev Hills.

Watching Survivor is hard on me because me & my sister who passed, used to watch it together. It's just not the same, without her, it seems. But... I did watch the beginning show... not sure or not if I'll follow it or not. Big Brother and that's about it.

I also watch a lot of the tattoo shows. Love the art, the creativity and the stories. :-)

But, if I'm not watching one of the above, I'm on the Science Channel, History Channel, PBS, Biography, etc. Most times, I'd rather learn something, than watch some silly fool's 15 minutes of fame. LOL

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

You have to wonder if the producers purposefully made the Brains the dumb ones because they really are pathetic in comps, strategy, etc. It's actually pretty funny.

Still early for me to pick a favorite. Not the best season, but not the worst so far.

Not a competition reality show, but I tell ya', Duck Dynasty had me laughing, cheering, and even shedding a couple tears tonight. By far, their best episode ever. What a great little girl Mia is. What great parents and family she has. If you like the show and missed it tonight, you have got to see it when it replays. If you're not a fan, tonight's episode is worth a view. 8-)

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

OK so, I am kinda off base here........ BUT...
The one show (not reality) that I am hooked, hooked, hooked on is

The Mentalist......

It's bad, I even sometimes rewatch past episodes I have already viewed.
But the Top Ten on my recorder are all NASCAR... the next 15 are all automotive.
And, as Smokie said... If I am doing the couch potato act.... I then watch
all the learning stuff...... no matter what it is...
1994 USAC Midget Champion ** 1995 USAC Midget Champion ** 1995 USAC Sprint Car Champion ** 1995 USAC Silver Crown Champion
1997 Indy Car Champion ** 2006 IROC Champion ** 2002 NASCAR Champion ** 2005 NASCAR Champion ** 2011 NASCAR Champion

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....I haven't watched Duck Dynasty yet. I love the show and adore the Roberston's.

I don't miss Survivor....my early fave to win is LJ....that Tony guy is horrible and I'm hoping they all go get him in the end.

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

I watch Idol when I remember that it's on (and as I write this late on a Saturday night, I just realized I have no idea who got booted last time!)....the judges' chemistry is terrific, and I like that they actually give constructive criticism as well as encouragement.

Other "reality" shows (are there really such things?) are: Long Island Medium, Bad Ink, Duck Dynasty.

I'm not liking Tony at all. Glad Lindsey is gone...what a little baby she was--- she was the mean and nasty one and says that Trish was nasty to her.---bs!
Liking LJ and Jeremiah. Somewhat OK with Spencer and Cass.

Re: Survivor, AI and other reality shows...

I gave up on the reality ages ago. I'm not fond of the cheating and nasty attitude. My favorite drama is NCIS. I would like to see Probie knock the snot out of "very first Special Agent Tony Denozia. His part get old after awhile. I'm looking forward to the new NCIS. Scott Bakula is an ideal actor to star in the series. When he whaled on a guy and then said "Oh that's okay in La. He is going to be a southern Gibbs.
