Unscripted is the on going tales of three out of work actors navigating the rough terrain of Los Angeles. In a land where the universal word for actors is "No", Unscripted takes a look at these three kind souls just trying to survive. Bryan is the nice guy suffering the indignities of a young actor from backstabbing to humiliation. Krista is a girl trying to break the mold of always being the sexy girl but continually finds herself in print advertisements as the bombshell. Then Jennifer is a young girl virtually antagonized for her looks but maintains a healthy attitude. As these three mutual friends sit in on an acting class, lead by the legendary Goddard Fult, a man of many words which can be occasionally harsh but constructive criticism and genuine passion for the craft show in his teachings.

First, I wholeheartedly agree about K-Street. It was not so great, because the politicians were mostly horrible actors and very self conscious. Also, I had some moral issues with the whole Howard Dean prep stuff. That being said, man its so sad when people can't see the forest for the trees. Unscripted is certainly an acquired taste, but you've gotta at least respect what they're doing for any number of reasons. First, like Curb Your Enthusiasm, the situations that Clooney comes up with are often very funny. Second, its not supposed to be getting you to "suspend your disbelief". The show is asking you to watch it for what it is: an unscripted, improvised show about three struggling actors trying to make it in Hollywood. Not "reality", but "improvised". Third, this show is so different and it takes risks. Aren't you tired of "reality" TV and lame traditional scripted network shows? There are so few truly interesting and worthwhile shows on television (Arrested Development, Rescue Me, Deadwood, Curb and thats it) so lets try to support something cool.
