White Trash on Parade
22 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's like the first few weeks of American Idol when they exploit the untalented, arrogant, ignorant contestants. This show always focuses on white trash. You hear the family members talk about how the 18 year old victim lit up a room when she walked in. How everyone loved her. How she was beautiful, talented, and smart. Then you learn she was selling herself online, was a crack-whore, and had three children from three different felons. Everyone interviewed is either covered in tattoos or piercings, has several teeth missing, is very uneducated, or most likely all of the above. It's hard to tell if NBC is interviewing these people because the information they have in interesting or if they are exploiting their ignorance for comedic effect (I vote for the latter). Of course these white trash are the focus of this program because they all sleep around, drink excessively, and own 15 guns (the perfect storm of their bread and butter). Aside from all that, they repeat information so much that original information makes up only 10 minutes which is repeated, ad nauseum, to fill the broadcast hour.
