Is Reality Tv Consuming Your Life?

I have to admit this to you all. I watch reality tv. Dun-dun-dun. Yeah, I watch them. I watch on occasion Chopped, Restaurant: Impossible, Kitchen Nightmares, and Dancing With The Stars. I used to watch American Chopper and Deadliest Catch when I used to live with my mother, however after I moved I don't have an actual television. But I digress.

I have found with the recent cancellations of certain shows, (especially my Ringer) reality tv seems to still remain a dominant force. I honestly don't understand what is so spectacular about them, but every week the nation tune in to see their stars dance, drink and or fight their way to further stardom.

My question is why are they so popular? Why do they seem to be so many of them?

As far as I can remember being in school, reality tv has kicked the butt of most tv dramas to date. At least that is my opinion. But whatever the draw they seem to continue to suck people in and good shows are dying. What's up with that?

The networks seem to think that watching scripted people fist pump and act a fool. I am saddened that my show is gone. I was actually hoping for a second season, but yet I am left with the Kardashians and their fifty shows and watching a dancing show that is obviously rigged from the start. Everyone knows the football player is going to win! *facepalm* But I digress.

Anyway, as I wipe the sweat from my forehead...I feel that viewers should be allowed to vote for what shows they want to keep on the air. But then again, the networks don't care and just want the money. That's all it comes down to. What makes them the most money. So, I guess I answered my own question.

Most television shows die because they didn't pull in big money for the networks. Shame on them for choosing foolishness over quality.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
