TV reaches a new low...
23 May 2004 | by (http://www.cinema-crazed.com) – See all my reviews

If reality television wasn't sign enough that pop culture and culture within itself was dying out "The Swan" is further verification of that worry.

FOX decreases its credibility further by reaching new lows in a show that feeds off of women's insecurities for the sake of entertainment. Truly, a low point in all of television history.

Take a bunch of self-conscious women, give them loads of surgery and pit them together in a beauty contest. Low? Well, they'd have to reach up to touch the bottom.

Reality TV exposes the worst that humanity has to offer and "The Swan" is proof of such. FOX feeds off of women's self consciousness and insecurities like vultures and exploits them for entertainmnet.

The trailers alone will make you feel dirty and soulless but watch the show and you'll feel worse. Rather than providing counseling, therapy, inserting positive views to these women and getting them to appreciate their own image, they feed off of them and further lower their standards.

The premise for this show is gruesome and morbid, and the women's reactions to their makeovers are also chilling, and you wonder, how will they feel four months from now when the lights are off them?
