Dana Gould on “Reality TV”

You will never experience less reality than when you’re watching a reality show. You’re watching people, who aren’t actors, put into situations by people who aren’t writers, and they are second guessing how they think you would like to see them behave if this were a real situation, which its not. And you are passively observing this; you’re watching an amateur production of nothing. It’s like a photo of a drawing of a hologram.
