Man, isn’t reality TV crazy, you guys? It’s like, what’s next? I heard in college that people were really voyeuristic. Someone should really make a low budget thriller starring Eva Mendes about it.

I’m so glad that we’re still dealing with tropes established in 1987. They should make a movie about a reality show where contestants have to come up with the most overused plot idea, and whoever’s plot idea isn’t overused enough has to kill himself on TV. It would be called The Condemned Series 7 Running Man Contenders.

In the not so distant future, I would probably watch that show, though. Unless it coincided with the new episode of MTV’s Which Of My Parents Just Used The Bathroom?

    all those other shows and plots are good too–i’ve never heard of series 7 before, so that was a get–but i think this eva mendes thing might be interesting. i mean in all the other reality-show plots, there’s an element of skill in winning, and the drive to win might actually have an influence on the outcome. but in this one, it’s all up to pure chance. and that might be the direction reality tv is going in now. what’s that briefcase show called?

    Am I the only one who wishes reality shows were actually like this? Hell, I think if we could get every sub-human reality “star” from the last 10 years on a show like that the world’s composite IQ would go up at least 15 points an episode.
