Weekly Homework Assignmet
It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following quote: Time for your tangent…what is your latest complaint?
Well, I don't like to complain (insert sarcastic joke here), but I REALLY am getting annoyed with reality shows ... wait, I've complained about this before?!?!? Oh yeah, right, I did. But man, has it gotten worse. I thought for sure at some point reality tv shows would eventually disappear (kind of like the evidence against Kobe Bryant during that rape case a few years ago ....) Sadly, it continues to gain steam.
An example is Jersey Shore (or whatever it's called). Really? A reality show about knuckleheads from a beach town in Jersey? And people are embracing this? Really? Wait, there's a guy with the nickname "The Situation," and people actually like him? Really? And now, these ass-hats are now infiltrating tv shows I watch (like when the Situation was a guest on Sports Nation)?
This, along with those "Real Housewives" shows that are spreading throughout towns quicker than those CSI shows ... man, I think we've reached a point of no return with bad tv. I shudder to even think what reality shows are on the docket in the future. I came up with some ideas I thought were outlandish a while ago (like a reality show about a bait and tackle shop), but at this point, I'm not so sure anymore. It makes me sick to my stomach.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch some professional wrasslin'.
