Reality Television is Out of Control

Our worst problem we face in today’s world is not getting out and experiencing it. We are trapped in out little worlds sitting in front of the television. We never explore, invite new things into our hearts, we only watch it on television.

The reality of it is, we are reality freaks. The concept astounds me to no end. Week after week we live vicariously through the lives of others and think we are there. We are not on some god forsaken island or bidding for a new boyfriend, we are couch potatoes.

People don’t want to hike anymore, ride bikes, or even bake, they want to see it on the box. These shows that we dubbed realty shows are truly not, it is fantasy. The fact is, once that camera’s turn off and the film is in the editing room, those contestants on these game shows are living life in comfort.

We wait for someone to get eaten by a lion, or to fall off the cliff, but trust me; there will be no law suits on today’s television. The tube is saturating our lives with reality and personally we have been over saturated and if you don’t believe me, here is a list of the ones I have researched and trust me; the list is growing every second of every day.

After you look over the list, think for a moment, then put down the remote and please, go out and walk, look, and smell the air.

  1. Im not a big fan of reality tv. I think it is way over rated and way way over done. It has also taken the place of programs that offered the traditional lessons and morals other useful programs offered like “The Cosby Show” or “7th Heaven”. Just my opinion..
