SwampMan and I were sitting in front of the TV, flipping through the channels, and saw a program that looked like it might be informative in the TV jungle of sluts, morons, and UFO crap. I’m sure sluts, morons, and UFOs all have their place, but not in my living room. We all know sluts, morons, and people that chase UFOs so I really don’t need to watch any shows about it. So we turn on the aforementioned interesting titled show, and damn if it didn’t turn out to be a “reality” show with people throwing down tools and having hissy fits. Apparently television producers believe that people doing their job in a professional manner doesn’t interest people and that there will be more dramatic interest if tool throwing and name calling is taking place.
Well, the television producers are wrong. It isn’t entertaining, it’s annoying. If I wanted to watch stupid people throwing hissy fits, I’d be working for Obama’s reelection campaign.
I could be persuaded to change my mind about reality tv if fit throwers got laid out with a shovel, then the damage to the shovel deducted from their last paycheck. Now THAT’s reality tv I could get into.
