Reality TV Once upon a time god looked upon the hollow nothingness beside him and decided to create life. First there was light, then there was earth, upon the earth he placed his creations – men and women. He called the first of them Adam and Eve. One day when Adam and Eve where running around naked in paradise they got bored and decided to build a soft comfortable object to sit on. They called this a sofa. When god saw the sofa he decided he liked it so much that he created a little box and placed it in front of his children’s sofa.
Adam and Eve looked through the clear box and were amused by it? s strangeness. A little bunny ran past the box and fell into a hole, the two humans watched through the hollow box as it struggled to survive during the next 7 days. As the 7? th day? s sun rose from it? s bed in the horizon the rabbit managed to jump out of the hole. Thus, Reality TV was born. Reality television is a genre of television that presents supposedly unscripted dramatic or humorous situations, documents actual events, and usually features ordinary people instead of professional actors.
When I say ordinary people, I am afraid I mean it in every sense of the word. The genre has existed in some form or another since the early years of television (primarily with game shows), but has expanded significantly since the series Big Brother first aired in 1999. Unscripted reality TV has amused surprised and offended millions of viewers through the years. As time changed, so did the contents of the programs, let me explain it to you in greater detail.
There’s a lot of really stupid ideas out there in the vast expanse of the TV universe and most of them revolve around the so called “reality” TV shows. Next time anything happens in your real life that’s similar to anything you see on reality TV, please let me know. TV producers worldwide realized rather early on that “reality” got pretty boring, pretty fast, thus they decided to change the reality TV to something that would suit their audience much better: “He is living a normal mundane life…. ith 23 single cheerleaders and one million dollars for the lucky girl who can win his heart! ” In case you? re wondering, yup, your IQ just dropped by 0,9 percent. That? s the danger of reality TV. I, me and myself think reality TV can be quite entertaining. Mostly because watching idiots battle each other in half a dozen ridiculous ways to win some kind of price is horribly amusing. It can also be enlightening every now and then.
