    Exactly, even the nightly News is being read from a script off a teleprompter.

    No zombies so far, and BTW Zombies are Awesome when scripted properly like in the Walking Dead

    Are we really discussing whether the so-called "reality" shows are in any way better than actual scripted series?

    I can tell you, pablo, that when I started this thread, that was not the goal. That still remains.

    My reason for posting was to complain that a reality show's first episode seemed fake to me. I didn't know it was a scripted show set to mimic a reality show. After watching the first (and only) episode, I can confidently say that it was more parody than drama. Simply stated, I don' like the show regardless of its genre.

    While it is not my intent to compare, remember that I don't control content here.

    It's actually listed as a Drama, and the funny thing is tonights episode is titled "a question of reality"

    As I said, portraying disposable reality show characters is an idea I like. So I'm watching it.

    After 2 episodes, I'm taking a pass on this one. It isn't horrible, but I can't keep up with the shows I actually look forward to.

    This has a "Lost" feel to it. It seems that the 'monster' from the island loves his job in Siebra. I wonder if we'll get a Dharma institute twist as the series goes on. I also wonder if there is other people in the woods besiodes the 'supposed contestants'. Or is going to continue like "Cabin in The Woods" and reveal that there is a psycho path.

    Was going to kill it, (the acting being real to what's in reality shows -- stinks) until 'what could do that' at tonight's show end, hooked me into another week.

    Acting/Reality. Isn't that an oxymoron?

    Not at all. Reality shows aren't reality, they star actors who are acting.

    What part of that don't you get? Do I need to type slower, maybe in another language perhaps? :rotfl:

    You're really over generalizing here.

    English is fine, Runner. You're entitled to your own opinion, especially when it simplifies the world you live in.

    My response simply reflected my own opinion on the matter.

    I can't figure out why Comcast hasn't put episode 3 ondemand yet. I've been watching them all the next day via ondemand so far.
