survivor theory...

I miss Nip/Tuck! I really do. I don't even know if they just aren't playing it in Canada anymore, or yet, or what...but I love how screwed up it is, and I miss it. I may just have to rent it, but I have no time.....sooo...I'll settle for what's on tv, I guess. I actually watched Survivor tonight..which I haven't been able to sit through for years....just cuz when it debuted as "reality tv", I was kinda peeved...cuz I know they have a film crew, the cameras aren't just floating around by themselves...and where does Mr. host sleep? I bet it's in a trailer, and not in a hut he made by himself of bamboo. And I'm sure, with all the crew, they have some kind of eating and or bathroom arrangement other than a hole in the ground and a hand-made fire; cuz that would be pretty difficult/nasty with that much crew. And then they build that fancy little place where they have the meetings to cut people, and they definately needed some construction equipment out there to build that. And to make all the challenges/obstacle courses...and so, when I watch survivor, this is what i think. Every time. And that, due to the demand of the viewing public, they keep going to a different place every year, tearing more trees down and upheaving the wildlife to build their crews' stuff and the set for the meeting things...and. yeah. That's not reality to me. Plus, they must need some kind of electricity to get all of those cameras working and to at least re-charge the batteries they may use in the cameras, and, if they use any, lights. And how do you get electricity in the middle of nowhere? Wreck trees and stuff to get it there. Waste of good nature, that's what it is. And they gotta have some kind of medical crew out there, don't they? What if a camera man gets bitten by a snake? Employees need some kinda job security. People sue nowadays. This is all not 'reality tv" it's all a big facade. I mean, it's not scripted, which is obvious, but they edit it all together to make people seem how they want them to seem. Not reality. Wow, this is getting long. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like the occasional "reality tv" episode of the vast array of shows out there now...buuuut. This is not really reality, so why is it called that? maybe that's what really bugs me. And the fact that they hide all of the behind the scenes stuff. To make it seem like it seems. Anyways, my mom and sister think I'm crazy, cuz they love it. But i can't enjoy it cuz this and countless other things run through my head the whole time...this is what it makes me think. There is a crew. Just like Criss Angel. He has a crew, but they call them "consultants". lets not even get me started on Criss Angel. We have an ongoing thing at school about him. the "illusionist". hah. Wow, am I that skeptical? Tell me what you think about survivor....? Night!

Survivor skeptic - hee hee. You are probably right in a lot of ways - but it is so much fun to watch. Maybe it is the people part that is so good, the manipulating - but I still love it. I know you think Nabomb and I are crazy!!! And the first few shows are never too exciting - until you get to the end. At least's Na's choices in the Survivor pool (and yes we are in a pool) are pretty good. Mine are pretty lame. Oh well!!!
