I had to use Wikipedia to find the names of those shows. I don’t watch em. Every time folks start talking about them, I don’t really join in the conversation. Then when they ask me something, I have to explain – I don’t watch any of those shows. I just don’t. I have enough going on in my life – I don’t have the time to watch shows about other people’s lives. Other people that I could care less about.
Am I anti-social? Probably. Do I think I’m better than everyone else because I don’t watch? Nah. Do I think I’m smarter? Probably – but that has little to do with why I don’t watch any of the trash…er I mean reality television that people love to watch. I just choose not to watch any of it. It doesn’t entice me. Watching people act a fool isn’t entertaining. That and the majority of it is scripted anyway. I went to school with someone who now writes for a whole bunch of reality shows. We’ve had several discussions at length about how she writes for reality tv shows.
I’ll just stick to my regular shows. NCIS – I love me some Leroy Jethro Gibbs. And at least its fake on purpose.
