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...



I'm torn on The Mentalist .... Love that it is centered in Sacto & surrounding bay area's ( :-) ) and love me some Simon Baker .... but sometimes the show itself kind of bores me. I like the parts when he's breaking it all down at the end and gets the guilty person to stick out. :-)

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

Come on man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...
These shows are so edited to make them look as dramatic as possible that sometimes I begin to wonder if they can still be considered reality shows or NOT (i. e. remember what some contestants were saying during those first few years of Survivor?...), and then, sometimes I wonder if there's a director/producer standing just "off-camera" who is cracking a whip over the contestants heads to make them seem as though their actually interested in what's being filmed that day. It's funny because as soon as I had this "cracking the whip over their heads scenario" visualized, the show "Big Bang Theory" came out shortly thereafter with an APP for their cell phones which sounded like a whip cracking whenever they held their arms up and made the "cracking the whip" action. These shows need to have more twists and turns added to them and they need to get back to being harder to endure/win, like when Survivor was in AFRICA and the contestants had to fetch their water out of the elephant dung hole and such, because no one loses all the weight the first ones seem to had to go thru and/or talks about NOT being able to take a crap for two weeks, you know, the good stuff the audience can appreciate and feel at the end like the winner actually deserves a million dollars...

OH YEAH, AND SURVIVOR NEEDS TO MAKE THE PRIZE 2 (TWO) MILLION DOLLARS NOW (which should have happened from the 20th season on because the show is a hit) SO THAT IT GETS MORE INTERESTING, NOT LESS INVITING...

OH Yeah, I almost forgot...

What are we talking about reality shows for when the only true reality show is NASCAR RACING?....

Haha! Fair enough! But a bunch of people on here watch some of the reality shows like Survivor and Big Brother. So every season we have at least one of these threads where we can talk and vent and make fun of these contestants. I think reality TV must be getting more boring because we rarely post on these threads anymore.

Speaking of Survivor........ Dang the Tony got the special immunity idol. I'd almost respect this guy more if he wasn't a cop. Now, I think he's just a bully kind of wise guy that keeps getting lucky. Wonder if anyone wants him to win? I don't have a favorite anymore. I liked LJ but they sent him packing. IMO, no one is really likeable of the remaining survivors except for maybe Jefra.

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

i guess the one show that doesnt get a full edit, is big brother, if you get the live feeds, sure they block certain content for legal reasons, but hey people love reality shows and they are cheaper to make then a sitcom or crime mystery show..

I'm leaning toward Spencer too, but unless he pulls something off next week, I'm afraid he's the next to go. I reread my last post and realized it sounded like I didn't like Tony because he's a cop. That's not what I meant. In fact, my youngest son is majoring in criminal justice next year to go into law enforcement. But, I think I do hold people in law enforcement to a higher degree of professionalism than this douchebag. I think Tony gives cops a bad name. He totally screwed his fellow office in blue and voted out. Booooo!

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

Not sure why Spencer didn't give the idol to his buddy.
The others practically said who they were voting for, but he didn't pick up on the clues.
I like Spencer, but it's no secret that he's pretty much doomed.
Jeffra should have jumped ship like she agreed to. That's the only thing that would have made the next couple of weeks interesting. Plus, it would have been seen as a big power move to the jury, should she make the final 3.
Tony, not a fan at all. I like players who are good, but don't tell us constantly. :roll:

Yeah, I was very ticked that Tony found the special idol. That sucked. I really don't like him all that much.... shades of Russell Hantz-- finding idols and the deception and Rob Mariano -- getting everyone to blindly follow him.

I liked LJ and Jeremiah. Jefra and Spencer and Taisha are OK. Not liking Trish or Kass too much either.

Funny that you and I have exactly the same thoughts on these survivors and who we like. I could have written your post! :D

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

I didn't mean that I don't watch the reality shows, I do and I watch BB, Survivor, Amazing Race and whatnot, but, I don't like cornball shows like the bachelor(ette), DWTS, etc. I was just trying to say that I wish they wouldn't change the timeline of occurrence of some of the more dramatic events to make such events look like they are more dramatic than they really are because you can tell sometimes that that is what they do just to make it look like such events contain more drama within them than they really do for those who are there and involved in such events. I could be wrong about this fact, but, it sure seems that that is what they do when the producers know the footage which they have for that week is less than desirable for airing, so, they try to "ham it up" with such editing.

I know you are all saying that you you don't like Tony the cop because he is such a "twitchy" guy with no "off" button and I feel pretty much the same about him and his finding of the special idol, but, then again this season would almost be boring without him because he's the most discussed contestant. I Have a feeling he's going to get near the end because of that idol, but, if he does he might win because of his ongoing control of the game or he might not because there will be someone there with him who is more likeable.
