That's why the movie "The Running Man" was ahead of its time.

The only drawback is that occasionally when I hear a lot of "news" about something television related, I have no idea what its all about and have to ask things like...

"WTF is a honey boo boo?"
A 7 year old hillbilly girl & her family behaving badly for a "reality" show. Reportedly the 7yo is paid $40K/episode, the other family members are paid less. The fact that they're paid at all, or even allowed to be on TV (other than as news) is simply appalling. Apparently the show appeals to the lowest common denominator, as does most (but not all) television. Think I'll donate to PBS now.
Regards, GF.

The commercials for the show are kind of amusing. They take a redneck 7 year old, give her "gogo juice" a mix of Red Bull and Mountain Dew, and film what happens. The result, in small small doses, is pretty funny. I have never been able to stomach the idea of sitting through an episode.

Listen, I think reality tv has done some good things. On MasterChef, for example, a vision impaired contestant was able to win without using any unfair advantages. Thats a first. Little People Big World was interesting in how uninteresting it was, basically proving that little people are drearily normal. But why we as a nation continue to provide viewership for shows in which nothing really happens, no skill or formerly underrepresented group is showcased, and the "stars" behave poorly, I will never know.

Wow... pump a 7 year old full of mountain dew and red bull. I foresee an early death and uproar in the near future.

I never really know what to say when someone says "OMG! Did you see XXXXXX last night! It was the best. Episode. Eva!" When I say we don't have cable and don't really watch TV they can't believe it. We have a 3 year old so sitting and watching TV just doesn't work. If we want to watch something we rent a movie. I can still watch the football games (GO Bison!) and that works for me. I had to decide if I wanted to pay for cable or pay for smart phones. The phones won. I spend too much time on my phone, but that is a different issue.

I'm sitting here denigrating this show...while at the same time watching the latest episode of "Duck Dynasty" on Hulu.....*sigh*

But I just love the Redneck Philosophy....and their wives are kinda hot.

An early death is inevitable. Look at the mom. It's not like they are a "healthy" family. I have seen this show once. I can tell you that it's spin-off of "Toddler's and Tiara's". For the record, I don't watch any of this crap but have flipped by it and my wife has watched an episode or two. It really is funny in very small doses.

Now, as a father of 3 girls, I think it is horrific to dress your small child up like a whore and parade her around. Even worse than that are the mothers that are trying so hard to live vicariously through said girls. And even worse than that, are the way these little girls act. If my kids EVER talked to me the way I have seen some on these girls talk to their parents, they wouldn't be able to sit for a week.

Reality TV is terrible and is a huge factor in the Idiocracy (go away, I'm batin') that is taking over America. When Paris Hilton and the Kardashian's are famous for no other reason than a stupid TV show, we are doomed.

One last thing, I am attending a Halloween party in a couple of weeks. I am going as Honey Boo Boo. My wife has been making my bloomers and tutu for the last few days. I am gonna look awesome!
