Ok, so I didn't want to make a new topic for each of these shows (since there is a new show every week) So, I am starting this forum as a place to talk about the new fad shows that come and go without having to start a whole new topic. If the discussion of a particular show takes off, I am sure the moderators will split it out. So here are a few shows I have seen lately:
Rockstar: INXS - Holy shit, the guys from INXS are old. Neither Dave Navarro nor Brooke Burke can put a sentence together. However, the performances are pretty fun to watch, and you can just about pick the top 4 or 5 who deserve to be in the finals. My only complaint is that they are trying to drag the show out way too long.
So You Think You Can Dance - I swore I would never watch this one, but the monsterette made me. Its like a carwreck that you can't turn away from. I am guessing that I will lose interest once they get down to the finalists, but until then, all the pop and locking is mesmerizing. Plus, they let a very nimble fat guy go on to Hollywoood, which I thought was classy.
Minding the Store - Pauly Shore can't possibly be this stupid in real life, can he? I read that parts of it are scripted, so its fun to figure out what is real and what is fake. It feels way forced at this point, but I am going to give it another shot just to make sure.
The 70's House - This one is the dark horse of reality shows. Its on MTV and it seems to be the only show that isn't being replayed every 5 seconds. This show is about 15 or so kids who are picked to live in a house decked out in only 70's regalia and they can only do 70's things. There are disco dance competitions, etc, and lots of celebrities from the 70's that make appearances looking very old. I don't know why, but I love this show. Its very fun to watch.
