Beating The Clock
By TI3GIB @ Saturday, February 03, 2007
[0 Comments][Permalink]

If you're a day-TV fan, you definitely have watched one or two shows about or have a feature on makeovers. They put on something that was the thing back in the eighties, or someone that's trapped in their nostalgias and pimp it up to make them or their owner the the new Mr. All-That in town.

I was doing my new favorite thing today (laying down hoping I'd come up with something to blog about) and I thought it's funny that with all the ridiculous amount of TV I've seen that involved make overs there was not a single program that needed overtime.

You know what I'm talking about Pimp The Bride , Transform the pig sty to a five-star bedroom from lala land, change the man's gender to a woman, change the guy's color just about in the promised time to make the owner or partner ecstatically happy and awed in how 'fast' it was done. I mean, if you're gonna beat the clock every time, you might as well take it out, the viewer doesn't give a shit, the viewer thinks the clock is fake and you turned off 7 times in the month 24 hours you took to get the job done.

This brings me to my point, Do people behind television think we're stupid ? I know it sounds like a silly question, but considering how worrisome the amount of effective influence television delivers (through News for example), it makes us think twice. We've all been through the "effectiveness of irresponsible media" debate far more times than we can count, but we've never really been through or witnessed any act of wrongdoing derived from Media directly, most of the irresponsibility we are fed up by the media stored somewhere in our subconscious eating our uncertainty and is released when mixed with the weak and baseless human judgment. Am I saying that humans are generally stupid ? or am I saying that we believe the media when it slyly implies we're stupid ? .. Yes, I'm saying that humans are easily influenced, but media isn't sure to blame for that. The only thing we can blame the media for is seizing that opportunity.

I hate stupid television ...
and I'm running out of shit to post about <- Ignore here
