When did we as a nation, or maybe as the whole entire world, become obsessed with reality shows? Now I’m not saying that we as a people and we as consumers have completely abandoned watching the scripted version of a TV show- no not by any means; just look at Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, Stan and various other streaming services that deliver gripping, high-quality drama and comedy. But what I am saying is that over the past decade or so, I’ve seen, or heard about much more reality shows than I have heard about in a long time, than I can even care to admit, and also than I think is needed. Am I being too controversial? Is there something about reality shows that rub me the wrong way?
