What's On

I'm sitting here switching channels between "My 600 lb. Life" and "The Great American Baking Show", and I'm sure someone smarter than me could probably provide some incisive commentary about the dichotomy in our culture about food attitudes, blah blah blah, but whatever, I'm really just killing time waiting for the latest episode of "Alone" to start on the History Channel at 9 p.m.

My name is RockyCat, and I am a reality TV addict.  Ha.  :)

hah! I love Alone! They are all big talk about how they'll be able to not only survive but THRIVE out in the wilderness for MONTHS - and then after a week, it's all 'oh I'm cold, and lonely, I'm going home"

The one "positive mental attitude" guy - he was just sad!

spiff, I am OBSESSED with this show. I have On Demand and I watch each episode about a billion times.

and yeah, there's always That Dude who caves right away. I mean, if *I* was on the show, That Dude would be ME, but still. These people are all supposedly "trained survivalists", whatever THAT means, so you'd think they could tough it out a little longer. I think last season That Dude left after, like, 24 hours, all, "there's BEARS out there!" No shit, Sherlock. :)

I LOVE that commercial the History Channel is running, where they show the contestants on Day 1 all, "I'm gonna WIN this show because I'm TOUGH and EXPERIENCED and MENTALLY STRONG!", and then they cut to Day ?? where the contestants all look like they're about to sob.

haha I'm mean. :)
