The Surreal Life is a show about celebrity has-beens, ones who were hot back in the day when they were on the A-List. This is what happens when they've fallen off that list long ago and are no longer in the public eye. As they live their day to day lives in a series of misadventures from odd confrontations to bizarre personal issues, they learn to live together as a family. Taking many people from the movie, television, and music industries, this is how they all live together in one Los Angeles mansion. It's how their life has become surreal. Written by
I never quite got into the first season, but the second one had a combination of cast members that could possibly never be topped. In reality, if any one of the following were not on the show: Ice, Erik, Jeremy or Tammy, then it just wouldn't have been the same. I would like to see an "all-star" version of this show using the better cast mates from each season without the two or three "filler" celebrities that they feel they must ad to each season...you know...the ones that were mediocre, even in their prime, or are simply reality "stars". After viewing reruns on VH1, I have gained new respect for the first season however, and the third one is getting pretty interesting...in a train wreck sort of way. I just think that Jordan and the sour "too good for everyone" girl (cannot remember her name) both are putting a hurt on their future careers by doing this show...neither came off very well.
