It's Finish the Sentence Friday and many thanks to Janine, Kate, Stephanie, and Dawn for hosting! This week's sentence to finish is "When it comes to reality TV, I..."
So, without further ado...
When it comes to reality TV, I... am completely ignorant. My knowledge and experience is practically non-existent. I've caught an episode here and there of a number of reality shows but an addiction or obsession with any particular one has yet to develop.
In all "reality," my TV time in general has dwindled immensely since the arrival of our little one. I'll occasionally curl up on the couch and watch a movie or a re-run of some sort, but to commit myself to a TV show is asking a little much. I've managed to stay committed to a very select few shows of which I can only think of two that I wouldn't dare delete off of the DVR before watching - and not a single one of those are reality TV. Truthfully, there are just other ways I prefer to spend my time.
However, today's FTSF is about reality TV, so I must come up with something... How about a glimpse of what I haven't stuck with but have at least tried?
I watched The Voice for a few episodes this past season, but I didn't even stick with it long enough to watch the final episodes. I liked the commentary amongst the judges and I felt like they had something it seems most lack, chemistry.
I catch Pawn Stars occasionally only because my husband enjoys watching the show. I can also add to that Axe Men. I have to admit, it's easy to get roped into some of the drama, but it's no fight whatsoever to walk away if I prefer to read or blog.
We do try to catch The Sing-Off when it is on. Again, we don't keep up with it but watching the groups is pretty amazing. They all sing a capella but you would never even notice because they create their own "instruments" with their voices.
Other than that, my knowledge is pretty limited. I hear family, friends, and co-workers talk about many others but I'm not contributing, only listening. I just haven't been drawn in to the whole "reality" TV genre - and I really don't have any regrets about it either.
Do you have a favorite that I should at least try? Or are you like me - a reality reject?
Thanks for reading.
