  • Do you think that talent shows and reality sagas are the ultimate state of television

    Can we trace an evolutionary path from AJP Taylor going on about the Treaty of Versailles to Britain's Got Cunts, meandering man soaps like The Soapranos and Jersey Shore?

    Can you envisage a televisual culture beyond the current status quo?
    Fast, clean and cheap.

      Only thing left would be forced talent shows. Taking people that dont want to be on tv and forcing them to
      do reality tv. Penalty would be maiming or torture of family

        They don't want to pay for writers any longer. Mystery solved.

          I hope these shows and the people who make them die. Especially the talent shows.

                They are the modern electronic equivalent of the 1800's freak show and a tinge of the Colosseum. People watch to see the really bad acts in talent programs or to watch the cast get ground up on reality programs. I look at it as us moving one step closer to bringing back gladiatorial combat.

                    I forget about Bait Car. Not sure if you guys get that over there. Police dept rigs up a vehicle with remote engine cut off.
                    They plant the bait car in a high crime area and wait for the criminals to steal it then chase and arrest .
                    So thats the unwanted reality show participant right there .

                        Hahaha, that's great. "Do you think you stole that car?" "..........silence........"

                        We don't have that here. I'm not sure our police do that here. They do have bait cars I think but it's more about catching people trying to nick stuff out of them.
