My buddy David told me about a bizarre reality TV show - I won't tell you which one for reasons that will become clear - and it set me thinking. Everyone ridicules (but evidently continues to watch) reality shows, but are they really a harbinger that American civilization is done for, and it's time to start stocking up on powdered milk and ammunition? How bad are reality shows, really? Read through the descriptions of TV shows below, and see if you can guess which TV shows are genuine and which one I made up.
Amish in the City: Five Amish young people are transported to the city to be confronted with worldly temptations from para-sailing to buttons.
So which of the above reality shows is the real deal? Answer: they all are!
Break out the powdered milk and ammo, Ma.
(Oh, PS - Thanks to David for sending me Naked and Afraid, which inspired this whole mess.)
