In The Name of All That Is Holy, No More "Reality" TV


| Movie Trailer | Review

This is an indictment of our society. What kind of people are we, that we would subject ourselves to this schadenfreude? And it's our own fault. If we would just stop tuning in to see the train wrecks that make us feel better about ourselves - Honey Boo Boo, The Real Housewives of Whatever Bumfuck Town We Pulled Into, The Bachelor, Jersey Shore, Storage Wars, Swamp People, and yes, this new monstrosity called Hollywood Hillbillies - then the networks would be forced to actually think of programming content and stop thinking about how to fill a half hour slot in the cheapest possible way.

Eons from now, when we've completely destroyed ourselves and future inhabitants of this planet wonder how we lived and what we did for entertainment, they'll find archival footage of a pudgy, little child beauty pageant contestant from a place called Georgia, and they'll immediately know how our civilization fell.
