    You are not gonna be on your own on this, I avoid like it like the plague. Can hear my missus watching some strange dancing reality show at the moment gives me a little longer on t'net anyways.

    I think it's excellent, pushing forward new talent, pushing back the boundaries of broadcasting. a new wave of tv for a new generation.



    Should I add that I had my fingers crossed as I typed that so I'm lying !! :ohmy:

    I can truthfully write that I have not seen more than a minute in total of these "reality" programmes, in friends homes I hasten to add, without feeling nauseous or wanting to kick their television in. I would rather go to watch paint dry than watch them! :ohmy:

    Ben Elton wrote a pretty terrible book about the X-factor style shows "Chart Throb" which pulls these shows apart and sheds some light on the workings of the selection processes. As if you didn't know to begin with.

    It's a poor book but reading some of his theories in print only confirmed it for me.

    However his book on Big Brother - " Dead Famous" I thought was a great observation on those types of show and a very good who-dunnit as well.

    There were some great comments about Execrable Factor in today's Times:

    Something tells me that Caitlin Moran was ever so slightly unimpressed... :ohmy:}:biggrin::ohmy:
