Social Engineering 101
7 July 2015 | by (The San Francisco Bay Area) – See all my reviews

Another alleged tabloid TV show about "celebrity gossip", only the casual and astute viewer both will note that this program predominantly focuses on interracial couples.

I personally don't think that's a bad idea at all, except that you'll note that it's more forced than an actual expose on "who likes who". The stories are in point in fact manufactured as a multimedia visual example to encourage people to go beyond their social and ethnic circle to look for love by witnessing the examples of personalities in popular media who have done the same.

In other words, this whole show appears to be one giant come on, much like the articles in popular women's magazines. The concept to is put forth social concepts and see if they fly with the American public. The same thing is done in the UK and a few other nations, but this particular show is so lo-brow and blatant that one wonders how it's survived all these years.

It's also testimony to the fact that regular intelligent films for adults are dead, and that what reigns supreme is not the so called movie star or yesteryear, but the person who makes a lot of money and gets notoriety for it.

Movies and the actors in them no longer get the lion's share of the popular media spotlight. They are now essentially assuming the crown of the Broadway actor, and have to play second fiddle to people are popular among the people for no good reason. At one time in this nation's history Broadway was the place to make your acting fame. Then movies came along and it became the Hollywood movie star. Now that's not even the case.

Is that a good thing? The truth is I really couldn't care less (the G-rated version of what I want to say), as this kind of programming just insults my mind. But, for what it's worth, I'm glad people (probably mostly women) aren't going gah-gah for some actor, but now are going nuts over anyone who gets their name in the news.

Well, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

In the words of Robert Townsend in "Hollywood Shuffle", I give this show, the finger.
