Not much, apparently. After recent fraud charges, and the rejected plea deal from the Brown Family, of Alaskan Bush People fame, who’ve been calling into the Juneau hearings from Seattle, I’m feeling disenchanted. I know many of you were already wise to this show, but I enjoyed it and the family. If regarded as fiction, I suppose I still can. This then begs the question, are ANY reality TV shows actually real? I have my doubts.
Given the charade in reality TV, Grimm, a favorite show of mine, is really quite believable. Being a cool form of Wesen (pronounced Ves-sin) could definitely offer advantages. I’ve always wanted super powers. My favorite character in the series is Monroe, a gregarious Blutbad (prounced BLOOT-baad) a werewolf wesen. I’m also fond of his wife, Rosalee, a Fuchsbau (cute kitty looking wesen), with a wonderful Spice Shop. She sells all kinds of herbal potions, some with magical properties, of course. Grimm is filmed in Portland, Oregon. Here’s a link to some of the neat sites featured in the series. This season is off with a bang!
Sleepy Hollow, another fav, is a little weird, but then, it always has been. Fun show, though. Hot guy. The intro/music to the show is awesome. And it’s totally believable. Scout’s honor. Fingers crossed behind my back. As is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not exactly current, but a classic. I LOVE the show and am working my way through the series. Better late than never.
What are some of your favorite reality TV shows, which frankly, I now suspect can include them all.
Among my favorite Buffy quotes:
“If the apocalypse comes, beep me.” ~Buffy
[On life] “Yes, it’s terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.” ~Giles (Giles is my favorite character on the series)
