    Default Scripted "Reality" Series

    OK, I just watched and episode of "Ma's Roadhouse" on Tru TV.....let's start by saying that I understand now why the call it "Tru" and not TRUE TV.....cuz it ain't TRUE folks


    This is supposed to be about a bike builder with a biker bar in Dallas....if this isn't the most scripted thing since Gene Simmons Family Jewels I don't know what is


    and old friend of "Ma's" shows up and WOW there's a Dallas TV newscaster in the background saying that there's a BOLO out on the guy and he was last seen entering Texas.....his crime? guys got about 4 pounds of pot on him

    well you can google the channel and theres no such newscaster there

    and the SWAT team shows up at Ma's trailer conveniently when the camera crew is there...do they send SWAT teams (and allow them to be filmed) for a 70 year old pot dealer?

    conveniently the camera was also in place to catch a guy smash a beer bottle on a bar and threaten a girl for spilling beer on his girlfriend

    and the girls who show up for the wet tshirt contest...TERRIBLE actors


    the whole thing reminded me of the old Robert Stack show "Unsolved Mysteries"



    all I'm saying is that if it is a "REALITY" show, it should show REALITY and if it's not, let us know, just like Unsolved Mysteries" that it is a REINACTMENT

    or in the case of many of these reality shows....give some credit to the script writers and the actors

    Most, if not all "reality" show are scripted in one form or another....I don't watch a lot of them for that reason.....but the reality is that reality is boring and a little help from the shows producers spice thing up....it is supposed to be entertainment....the few that I do watch and enjoy to an extent are the food shows.....Top Chef, Chopped and Iron Chef, and all three are scripted to a degree.....Iron Chef, though enjoyable, is almost completly scripted out.....the chefs know the secret ingredient well before hand and have even practiced all the dishes several times before taping....

    Well no god damn shit, daisy. Surely people don't think it's all real. Regardless, the mother does make me laugh. She speaks like an old school Texan who has been in the shit and "don't" give a fuck. Like my grandmother. Thus, I like her. Out.

    ACK! some of my favorite shows! Say it ain't so!



    well I kinda figured out the Iron Chef thing......how could they possibly have on hand all of the ingredients that they need for some of those very complicated dishes?...it's not a quick trip to the corner grocer kind of thing

    Those Food Network shows are some of my favorite too.

    Speaking of scripted, I think one of the worst is Operation Repo. There have been some ridiculous scenarios played out on there and they've even used some of the same actors to play different people that they are repoing a car from. Once they had this old geezer that played an irate doctor getting his Porsche repoed, then in the following season he was just some unlucky schmuck that didn't pay his loan.

    Another one is Rehab, Party at the Hard Rock, seems as fake as the tits on it, but entertaining none the less.
