I'm a reality TV fan. Not a junkie... a fan. There are certain shows I enjoy, and some I feel are ridiculous. I like to watch the human nature that materializes in different situations. I'm also trying to figure out which show I could win and get the most amount of money...just kidding...sort of.
I don't have big reactions to most regular shows. Sure, I'll get teary during a good Lifetime movie, but rarely do I ever display any other emotion watching any shows other than Reality shows. I was cheering last night when Chima got expelled on Big Brother...what was she thinking? Wonder what she'll think of herself when she sees the footage. I also cheer on my favorites during American Idol and have not-so-nice things to say if one of them gets voted off.
If you're looking for something to watch that will evoke some emotion, you need to try out
the truTV effect . I watched several of these videos (online) earlier (waiting for the Hot toddy to kick in) and found myself squirming to untangle my (imaginary) parachute while watching the skydiving video, laughing at the woman trying to get in the Guinness Books for largest breasts, and ducking while punches were being thrown on the oil rigs. TruTV is not only real...it's actual. Real stories while they are happening. No editing, no scripts, no rules. It's like watching only the best parts of news reporting. TruTV is, locally, channel 57 for Cox subscribers, one of our most watched channels.
Not intended for children, TruTV will get your blood going. When the stories are real, the effect is actual. Try it for yourself and let me know what happens.
