This post is written in response to the “Finish The Sentence Friday Blog Hop (FTSF #5) hosted by Janine @ Janine’s Confessions of a Mommyaholic and Kate @ Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine with My Morning Quiet Time. I plan to “finish the sentence” each week for my Saturday post.
This week’s prompt: “When it comes to reality TV shows, I …”
… honestly can’t stand them. I don’t watch a lot of TV in the first place, but reality TV shows are last on my list. Here’s a couple of reasons why …
1. It bugs me that they are called “reality” TV shows because nothing is less real than being put in front of a camera. Rarely are people authentic when they know it will be broadcasted to the world. Most of the shows are pre-scripted and not to mention the viewers only get to see what the producers and editors want us to see.
2. (and more importantly) I witness enough reality in REAL LIFE. Being a therapist I get to witness the real life of real people. The stories are heartbreaking, scary, amazing, wonderful, emotional, dramatic, funny, lovely, worrisome, and beautiful. Because of that I don’t need to watch a fake version on TV.
Because of that I can’t handle watching more of it for entertainment purposes.
