Yes, I am serious.
I'd much rather put my feet up and enjoy an hour's worth of escapism, than watch 2 minutes of "reality" TV, because the likes of Dallas is entertainment, and just that. It's not real.
I know shows like Jersey Shore are scripted, Big Brother is people showing off, but to me they are all just a sad reminder of the level to which humanity has stooped in order to get fame and fortune, and the fact that half the viewers are stupid enough to aspire to be like these numpties is, quite frankly, frightening.
I'm pretty sure that the 80s/90s didn't spawn a whole generation of people who wanted to become JR.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
