I was going to post this in the Pet Peeves thread, but I feel it deserves a thread in its own. First of all, as a preface, I'm not a big time TV person and usually only watch it in the morning at the gym or maybe major sports events on the weekends. And I'm not big on reality TV shows either, except that I appreciate that they generally make an attempt to keep things interesting by traveling to interesting places, and instilling competition in to the theme. And plus they know how to film stuff. Well, there has been this one show, it is a reality TV show, and it is occasionally playing on one of the screens at the gym. It is called 'Chrisley Knows Best.' This show is absolutely none of the above. It's horrid. It's just your average wealthy family being followed around by amateur videographers with no training or experience in cinematographic arts. To top it, It isn't even the slightest bit interesting. There is no actual real drama. The acting is really bad, but then again, ostensibly, they aren't actors, they are real people. Don't ask me what the distinction is, other than by labeling it 'reality TV' they can justify amateurish scripted dialogue. Watching this thing is like watching a train wreck. It's like watching Facebook Kenny make a fool of himself on social media as he earns his 777 type rating in an SR22. Except, the whole Kenny thing is somewhat entertaining and mildly dramatic. Except to his psychiatrist, to which it is majorly dramatic. Nowadays, with the advent of ebooks and self-publishing outlets like Amazon Kindle Direct and Smashwords and the like, anyone of any level of literacy can compile some chapters together, call it a book, and throw it out there as a published work. I do it myself even. But as a result, there is a LOT of worthless crap out there in e-pub land. This show is the television equivalent. Let's say we followed @SixPapaCharlie around with a video camera. No, cancel that. That might actually be interesting. No, it would be downright scary. Bad example. Okay how about following @Greg Bockelman around. No, we might see some flight time in a 195 plus all the things that happen in the 737 cockpit that he isn't willing to cop to publicly. Another bad example. Okay I'm having a hard time finding a POA member that works as a prop. Okay wait a minute. Henning. No, I could sell that. Ron Levy. There we go - follow Ron Levy around with a video camera night and day. Other than his daily breakfast meetings with the Chief Counsel, I'm sure his life is fairly mundane. That would be a good analogy. There must be some demographic that likes this Chrisley show or it wouldn't air, but what that demographic is, escapes me. If I were the network executive, he'd have to pay me, a lot, to subsidize the air time. Actually, that might just be the case.
