    What's a past or present reality show that you enjoy?

    Small Town Security
    [​IMG]

    Revolves around group of folks working at a security firm. Gentleman on far right in uniform used to be a lady. He's also obsessed with woman holding dog. I give this show a 7.




    Family Plots
    [​IMG]

    Family Plots was an American reality series that followed the ongoing events and employees at the family-run Poway Bernardo Mortuary in Poway, California. I give it a 7.



    An American Family:

    You will never jerk it harder to a basic cable show. The greatest reality TV show ever.

    Pawn Stars is pretty good. I know it's heavily scripted. I just enjoy the history talk. Real World and Road Rules were great. The first few survivors. And my favorite one right now is Bar Rescue.

    I was a fan of COPS for a while. You got to see what police officers really saw all the time. White trash, Latinos and black people doing dumb crap.
    And I watch comic book men now. I really enjoy that one.

    Howard invented reality TV.

    He's said that. Really.

    Wiggy invented The Osbournes. He officiated the marriage of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and birthed Jack and Kelly. True story.

    The only reality show I can tolerate is The Amazing Race. Mainly because they put the contestants in truly amazing places.

    Liked the first Real World. After that it was played to the camera more. Those kids had no idea how the series was going to look.
    Fantastic season.
    After that the drama was played up. That season was very voyeuristic

    I also like some of The Ultimate Fighters.

    I wonder what happened to the girl Julie from Real World 1. She could be really MILFy these days.

    Julie Gentry — Real World Season 1: New York

    ThenEighteen-year-old Julie was the youngest member of the original Real World cast, a virgin, and a naive small-towner. Essentially, her entire persona would become one of the show’s archetypes.

    Memorable moment: Fighting in the street with roommate Kevin and telling him racism exists because of “people like you, Kevin.”

    NowStill living in Alabama, Julie Oliver married chef Joshua Gentry in 1998. “She looks amazing — exactly as she did on the show. Her kids are the sweetest, smartest kids in the world,” a source told Fox 411 in 2011. “Julie is very involved with her local public schools, committed to creating environmentally friendly educational facilities.
