    Go back in time 30-40 years or so with episodes of Honey Boo Boo, and show them to the people of the time, while telling them this is an actual honest-to-goodness TV show from the year 2012.

    I guarantee they'll fight Sarah Conner-style to prevent this future from happening.

    30-40 years ago is only the 70's or 80's. the pop culture then was equally ridiculous.

    Reassure them by saying that we still hate gay people.

    Well, would they be scared if you went back to the 1950s/60s and showed it to people then?

    I bet the anti-TV intellectuals will feel justified, in a "nothing will ever change" kind of way.

    An insipid show on TLC about a child beauty pageant star and her redneck family.

    That got more ratings than Paul Ryan's speech at the Republican National Convention.

    Still shaking my head at that.

    This. I would go back 30 years to the past and warn the world about the horrors of Reality TV. Then I would lead a torch bearing mob to hunt down the idiots that would come up with the godsdammed idea. And afterwards we'd burn MTV to the ground for good measure and make sure the beast never surfaces.

    And yet still you open your mouth. This explains so much about your posts.

    Or at least, threaten to burn it to the ground the moment they stop playing music videos.

    Doesn't it mostly about everyone here?

    No, 'mostly about everyone here' had something to say. You just want to get your face into the thread.

    "HEY EVERYBODY! I'M HERE! REMEMBER ME?! I EXIST!"

    That's you. That's you just then.

    I'm surprised he didn't post a link to his youtube channel.

    Nicely put.

    And then you prove him right, Arlol. Moral of the story is, if your post doesn't have any insightful other than an "um", "what ", or "I don't know what to say", it does kinda reflect poorly on you and maybe you shouldn't post it at all.

    Touché. Sometimes I forget about Cops. When I think about reality TV I think of MTV's The Real World because that's the sort of insipidness it brought on to TV.

    Look, Network tried to warn them and they didn't listen anyway.

    True that. Paddy Chayefsky is probably spinning in his grave thinking, "Network was a warning, not a how-to guide!".

    Arlol, the Chinese have a saying; Liang Yao ku kou

    It means, "medicine tastes bitter".

    The English equivalent is "advice most needed is advice least heeded."

    true story!
