    I'd pretty much given up on the History Channel with all its alien and Bigfoot crap, but this show is pretty damn good. Anyone else?

    I regularly watch Gangland.. it's compelling, disconcerting and downright sad and pessimistic.

    It's not the same show as that gang documentary series. This show is a scripted drama. Like Donnie Brasco but with a biker gang.

    You do understand that all reality TV is scripted right? Meaning its fake.

    Absolutely. I can't stand any of them. I just meant this isn't presented ad a reality show.

    O I C.. thanx. Is it worthwhile checking it out? FWIW, today (it seems again unsuccessfully) I resuscitated a dead OP of mine from 2 weeks ago extolling the virtues of "American Crime" now 3 episodes in. It's an unusually raw and well acted drama for ABC; I wholeheartedly recommend it.).

    Yeah, pretty good show. They probably should have called it something else (I thought it was like that other Gangland show at first too), but it's a good series. They bill it as "based off of true events," but take that with a grain of salt. It's a good watch.

    Dawg, I hate "reality tv" with a passion. I blame it for most of the sorry state if popular television and music. I think it's also playing a huge part in the idiocratization of society too. Don't get me started on "reality" TV. :snipe:
