Statement Analysis: Reality Television Shows
Nothing says "reality" than 7 young adults, without jobs, living together with a camera following them around.
Yet it is that a trend began in America and continues to this day, called "Reality TV."
Fascinating at times, tedious at others, the "reality" in question is as vast as human nature; that is, inscrutable.
Readers here are generally used to a crime being committed, the accused speaking, and analysis posted revealing whether or not the subject is telling the truth.
But what of those on reality television?
Is there a train wreck out there that you just can't turn away from?
A mother berates her five year old incessantly, while creating an entitled-on-steroids monster. Emotional abuse, perhaps?
Another has an overweight, ill-mannered child exposed to not only child molesters, but on display for the world to laugh at, not with, the uncouth behavior that is, until the network was exposed for knowingly following around a neglectful mother.
Deceptive women from Long Guyland feign to have "inside" knowledge of life, with neo-gnosticism that, apparently, is enough to gain an audience.
Another man, quite popular, took to wrestling dangerous animals, eventually exposing his child to the dangers, that is, until one of them took their own justice and dispatched him.
Today, there seems to be no end to the number of shows that focus on Alaska and the mentally ill who embrace solitude as if it was a virtue, or those who make a living in the most dangerous, but adrenaline rushing manner.
Do you watch any of these shows?
I have caught a few episodes of "Life Below Zero" recently and noted that one character, in particular, takes to praising animals. The praise or adoration of said animal is a key to her intention: she plans on stalking and killing it. "Brother bear", from 400 yards away will either be her prey, or she shall be his, she tells us.
You can't make this stuff up.
I've done analysis on "Honey Boo Boo" mother, who was deceptive about exposing her child to a child molester, but I was caught by some readers: True enough, I have not watched the show. Owning my hypocrisy, I went to see it only to find that not only was there a cancellation, but no re-runs appear to be shown.
It's not my fault I haven't seen the show, right? Forget the raging clever barbs in "Pride and Prejudice"; we have someone spilling spaghetti sauce on her shirt.
That's entertainment? At least YouTube takes time to delete things.
Like all humans, we get to see the flaws as well as the moments of love, tenderness and kindness. Not everyone understands a 9 year old daughter filleting a moose or eating raw whale blubber, but the language used is...
fascinating, especially when we see one man who seems unable to stop saying "my wife", "my wife", while another man is verbally abusive to his...
on the same show.
Regarding these shows, I thought it interesting for readers to post:
1. What show you have watched
2. What deception indicators you have picked up
3. An explanation of what you encountered.
Since it is supposed to be unscripted, the Free Editing Process should be engaged.
It would be fascinating to read your opinions and analysis of "reality" television show characters.
