These days, it seems as though every time you blink, there is a new "reality" show racing out of the television floodgates.
What happened to sitcoms? The Facts Of Life, Growing Pains, Family Ties, The Cosby Show they may have been bubbling over with cheesy morals, but at least there were morals involved.
Most "reality" based shows disgust me and have me yelling at the television until Season asks me to stop or changes the channel.
Sometimes though...much to my chagrin, I do get sucked in.
There is no denying it reality television is like an addictive drug. At first glance of this television redundant genre, you are curious to what it's all about, so you try it. Before you know it, you can't wait until the next installment and you're going out of your way to make time to catch the next show. No matter how stupid or obnoxious these worthless pieces of drivel are, we watch them.
Anyway, it sounds like this "reality" show is chock full of morals and values. I will probably be watching, but my expectations are set very, very low.
