I still don't watch it. I tried watching 2 or so episodes. I just don't think it's funny (same with the commercials for it). There is so much stuff on TV nowadays... even if it was something I'd eventually grow to like... I'll live without it. Thanks though.

Well, at least you liked Lucky Louie. Laughing

What shows are you into these days?

I like Big Bang Theory as well.

Robin Williams has a new show coming on this fall that might be good. Beyond that one, I'm not sure of anything else new.

House Of Cards was decent on Netflix. I'm not sure when they are coming back with a second season though.


I like:
Bear Grylls - Get Out Alive
Dual Survival
Mountain Men
(pretty much any outdoor survival show)

Motorcycle Experience (Canadian)
Counting Cars
I'll tune into auto related shows like Pinks, Pass-time etc. once in a while)

American Restoration
Pawn Stars
Storage Wars
(once in a while)

Basically I watch reality TV because I'm not a fan of any television series. I'd love for something to get and keep my attention this fall.

Lucky Louie was the best, I'll probably watch it again.
Louis C.K.'s show "Louie" wasn't very good though. I was disappointed as I really wanted to like it.

I like Pawn Stars and Storage Wars too.

I also have all of the Get Out Alive episodes taping on the DVR.

I also like Breaking Bad as far as a drama series goes. Bryan Cranston is like so good on it.

Reality teevee is joke.

Can anyone actually believe anything that goes on is not directed by the production staff? If anyone actually thinks it's not for ratings, and not staged as can be, they might as well look for Captain Stubing on the Pacific Princess.

Hey, The Love Boat is an awesome show, just like Fantasy Island!

I only watched the Love Boat to see Isaac do the to handed point thing in the intro. Laughing

Nitro Circus is a fun show to watch. You certainly can't say it's fake.

There is plenty of reality TV that is totally unscripted and genuine. I wouldn't categorize it all as being the same.

I like watching Survivorman (it's Canadian). It's one guy out in the bush alone doing his own film work. He even produces the show. Nobody is telling him what to do but himself. Sure he can set up scenarios and edit the footage after, but it's all real. If he attempted a river crossing and failed, we wouldn't get to see that episode, he'd be dead.

There is more and more reality TV that is intentionally real, raw and unedited. It's been a growing category for years. Then there is reality TV that was fully intended for entertainment value. Siberia is a recent twist on reality TV for pure entertainment value. It's all actors reenacting a reality horror gone wrong. Some people love it, others hate it.
