Surreal World

  1. The aboved named is an unreality show that I have watched for last three weeks. It is the exact opposite of a so called reality show. It features a bunch of washed up, has been former celeberties whose 15 minutes of fame is just about over. It makes no pretense to be anything but a show about phony people in a phony business. By accident or design it turns out to be more real and honest than the so called reality shows. Take for instance, Cory Feldman a fomer child actor whose career was ruined by substance abuse. He is still using and he is acting out the classic substance abuse behaviors right in front of the cameras. His denial, lies and self pity are so familiar. He is subjecting his fellow Surreal World inhabitants to all the fun and games with which the friends and family of chemical abusers are so familiar. They on the other hand are starting to take on the behaviors of many co-dependants. On one they are hand verbally abusing him and rejecting him, on the other hand they are changing there own behaviors to accomodate his addiction. I don't know if the show will be a hit or not, it is almost tooo painful to watch. By the way, you can see why some of these people were once stars, some of them actually do have talent and occasionally show flashes of it.

    Thursday evening, they have been moving the time around but not the day. Sometimes it was on as early as 7:30, others as late at 9PM.
