I came home from our Wednesday Night Supper last night and my husband was sitting in his recliner multi-tasking. Surfing the web with his laptop and watching Man VS Wild on Discovery.
Now I am not a huge fan of reality television, but my husband is a discovery/history channel junkie. He loves all those documentaries on these channels. I wouldn't necessarily call Man VS Wild a documentary, it really is in my opinion a reality show.
In last nights show Bear Grylls is stranded on a deserted island and he is attempting to survive and make it off the island alive. If your not familiar with the show he places himself in survival situations and due to his training in the military he has a wealth of knowledge that he uses to stay alive.
Well last night as I sat multitasking with my laptop as well, you all are far more entertaining then the ordinary nightly television fair but I was from time to time glancing up at the television.
So here is my question, where do you draw the line? What do you feel is appropriate for television?
Now I know in the age of Jerry Springer and Girls Gone Wild there is very little that is off limits. I also fully support the concept of just turning it off! Most days I don't even turn on the television until the hubs comes home and we watch the nightly news. Other than that I’d rather watch a good movie or Food Network. But I am wondering what y'all think.
Do you really want to see someone hacking out an eyeball of a still flopping around live fish and then popping it in his mouth and crunching down on it, and all in high definition?????
I can not even bring myself to describe what he did next as it was just too revolting. If you were tuned in to last night show you will know what I mean.
For the truly brave and strong stomached you can do a Google search just type in theses words enema bear Grylls life raft but(seriously a real play on words) here I would not recommend it!
Seriously! How many of us will find ourselves stranded on a makeshift life raft in the middle of the ocean…
So where do you draw the line for what you feel is appropriate for television and when do you just turn it off??
