scripted reality, what we have come to accept
5 December 2012 | by laws1791See all my reviews

The initial film was mildly entertaining, and the TV series takes the ridiculousness to a new level. Like the film, it has some truth to it and the characters add much to the entertainment level, not necessarily the idea of people manipulating and duping others over the internet. We've know that for years!

I will admit that I do not like any form of reality TV simply because it is scripted and not genuine, and that goes for this TV series. To use an example of real-life, unscripted "documentary-style" TV entertainment, I would use Cops as an example. You have real individuals who are quite the character, real-time footage (nothing re- enacted), but you only get snippets of the life of the individuals involved in the show.

If you like this style of fake, reality TV, then it will nonetheless entertain you and allow you to converse with others as if the scenarios on the show did indeed happen. But if you enjoy the fictional, scripted comedy as with other shows, this show may insult your intelligence, which in this case, you would not be watching these shows to begin with.
