I do like documentaries however, like the HBO ones. I like stuff on the history channel, but I guess that doesn't really count as "reality TV" in the same way.
Stuff that has respect for the people depicted. I've never seen a reality show that does that. (I know a lot of people like them and I don't mean to put down anyone's feeling--it's just what I think.)
It's not only that, they just BORE me to tears. What is so fascinating about "watching people do stuff"? You can do that without TV!!
Also, speaking of "bad" TV, or at least mediocre, (not reality though) does anyone remember this show at all? It was a good show for its time (especially the first season) but now it sort of feels dated. Wish they'd release it on DVD, though.
It has kind of a surrealistic vibe to it (at least it did in the beginning) because it was purposely channeling Ferris Beauller.
