Mean spirited
27 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Season 1: Taps Academy follows the simple "beg for a job" format pioneered by gutter television shows like The Apprentice. A group of people, usually with no obvious skills, vie for a job by backbiting and grovelling to the point where the pea-brained viewer is clapping their hands with glee when they finally get "fired" from the show. If they cry, break down or beg then the producers almost certainly high-five each other.

Naturally to make this format work you have to select people who are born losers and here at least the vultures that put this show together have put some effort in. None of them are people you'd want to spend more than five minutes around. So far I've seen two very nasal monotone girls who think they have psychic powers, a pair of disgustingly sycophantic plebs and a couple of others too devoid of personality to be memorable.

What I find especially distasteful about the show is the way we are treated to Steve ("I've never read a book all the way through") and Tango bollocking these kids for various petty infractions to their ghost hunting way. If the show was more about "here's how to ghost hunt" I think it would be a big hit but it's not, it's about seeing people told off for not plugging a camera in properly and that's boring to watch.

Season 2: Much less spiteful but no more interesting. The could be recruiting plumbers and it would be much the same show. I can't really say much more about the second series than that because I realised it wasn't going to get any better and gave up.
