I've been watching the new Real World for the last two weeks, and for the first time since the show started years ago, I honestly feel like the damn thing is one big poorly acted work.

With a tough task in front of MTV in topping the Real World Chicago, the highest rated incarnation of the Real World (and also the best) to date, it seems like they've taken the easy way out.

I mean give me a break... Let's take a look at what's happened between these seven complete strangers in the first three days they've "been in the house" alone...

Days One: Frank and Steve become best friends. Frank, the small town boy, falls for Treselle, the small town girl. Frank confesses his deep seeded love for Treselle numerous times to his new best friend Steve.

Day Two: Treselle confides to the girls in the house that she likes Frank as well. Steve says, "You're money man.. You're money." Upon going out to the club downstairs, Steve (the best friend of Frank) just so happens to start making out with TERSELLE. This leads to Frank confronting Steve, only to have Steve start making out with Terselle right in FRANK'S LAP. The camera "cuts away" for a few minutes, only to come back and see Terselle wearing sexy lingerie, seducing Steve into her bed, and having wild sex with him. Oh yeah, we forgot to mention, STEVE IS MARRIED. This is the SECOND DAY in the house...

Day Three: The black guy, who's name I can't remember, gets a call from his girlfriend... SHE'S PREGNANT!!!!!! Terselle and Steve continue to explore their relationship. right in front of Frank.

Day Four: The gang is at the club, and you'll never believe what happens. Terselle, fresh off of kissing Steve, suddnely discovers that she has SAME SEX FEELINGS. She and Brynne, the hot skater chick bad girl, start making out at the club... Two hours later, the whole cast is in the hot tub with Steve, Brynne, and Terselle all raping each other... Fifteen minutes later, the first bisexual threesome in the Real World House, a scant 86 hours after moving in.

Day Five: Terselle's sister Buffy tells Terselle's Father of Terselle's actions. The Father, coming from a small town, calls and irately states that he feels as if his daughter has SHAMED the family. He will surely have a scarlett letter on his chest.

Later in the season: Pregnancies arise, fist fights break up between male and female members of the house, a roommate is asked to leave, they run a sultry Vegas show... I mean COME ON. If you just watch the show and try to look for little signs, it's just way to suspicious in my opinion. A lot of them, especially Frank, appear to be acting. It's just strange and not like any Real World I've ever seen. These people just don't seem real.

Any thoughts ?

I did an essay awhile back on Reality TV and how it's a 'work' (didn't call it that in the essay, but you know what I mean).

I find it hard to believe, ESPECIALLY after becoming a member in the TV Industry and working on some studio productions, that anything except of SNL (because sometimes it sucks that much you can tell it's live) and some of those Late Night shows.

All Real Worlds = worked. Period. Especially this one.

There was a recent Mission Hill where they ripped on the Real World. Their "bad boy" died as a result of Andy French's actions, so they had Andy replace him. It was funny shit.

Actually, yeah I do, but it's at home right now on a disk, while I'm at work. If you want, I'll e-mail it to you tommorrow. Or I'll post it on here. One of the two =)

I saw that episode. It was a classic!

Anyway, why don't they just call it Real Fake World or Real Lame World?

Hey Yo...

I don't really watch the show, but aren't ALL reality shows works in some way? I mean, they're edited first off, so many times you don't get everyhting that actually happened in a situation put in. Usually certain members of the household are villified, to look bad on screen, while others look wholesome as a daisy. Plus, they made a freakin' Real World MOVIE! One word for that, TRASH.

I would also be interested in reading your essay.

Interesting, because I found Frank's actions and feelings totally believable. He formed an instant bond with Trishelle (trust me, there's an H in her name), and she seemed to have feelings for him. Then, despite her initial thoughts, she falls for Steve and makes out IN FRONT OF HIM (Frank). He gets pissed at not being the first to make out with Trish, and his jealousy causes him to change his entire outlook on Trish and on Steve.

Meanwhile, Trishelle is upset somewhat with herself for falling so quickly for bad boy Steve. But because she has not been exposed too much to debauchery of this nature, and because there are guys willing to make out with her, she falls for it.

In fact, part of me wants to believe that Trish wanted to get reamed by her family and father, because that shows her that they care about her. She wants to stop this behavior (as evidenced by her spurning of the Brynn make out session the next day), but she is weak of character and just wants to have fun in Vegas.

So to me, the feelings are believable and tragic. These two episodes have hooked me, and I will keep watching. Besides, Brynn is REALLY HOT!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I don't know why EVERYONE thinks Trishelle is so damn attractive. She isn't. She looks like Greta Van Sustron....

I recommend Planetsocks.com for further off-Wienerville enjoyment about this.

What gets me is how far the media whores have sunk from the early days. New York Season One was *nothing* near this.

There was also a halfway decent (for their standards, which as you know is above damn near everything on TV) episode of Law & Order where they investigate the death of a cast member on a Real World-type show. They end up trying the show's producers for working the whole thing, breeding conflicts, etc. I forget who was on the cast at the time... I think it was either Green or Curtis with Briscoe, and I think the other ADA was Carmichael.

Worked or not, this season of RW is shamefully enjoyable.

This is mostly a question and most probably just for us European guys on here.. A while ago, THQ had a tentative release date for Raw for the X-Box in Europe. This has now disappeared.
