In Other News, Reality TV isn't Real

Unless you’re a complete moron, you know that any “reality TV” bears little resemblance to reality. The 5 Details They Cut from My Season of ‘The Biggest Loser’ show nicely just how much telling the story overrode “reality”.

And sometimes the “healthy habits” you saw on the show were no such thing: My season made a big deal of showing us all drinking our milk to prove how nutritious it was. But as soon as “cut” was yelled, the trainers made us spit it out. Calories do not trump calcium, apparently.

Masuka (Of Dexter Fame) Is A Redditor!

I was wondering why a post from a new redditor was so high on the main page when I was reading a different thread and finally grokked the name. Masuka is the other blood splatter analyst in the TV show Dexter that is the crass, perverse, and overall awesome guy (who gets way too little screentime IMHO). Anyway, it's his AMA that hit the main page.

BTW, if you don't watch Dexter, you must start now. Don't start with Season 5 though, go first watch season 4. Actually season 3. Maybe 2. Actually just start with season 1 and work you way up, it's well worth it.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Series

This could be awesome or horrible. Seems the BBC is going to be doing a one hour pilot of a potential Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Series. It'll be done by the same guy who did Misfits, which I enjoyed, but the issue is that as with all things from Douglas Adams, translating the awesomeness of the series from text to screen will be hard.

Still, I'll watch it and hope they pick it up as a series. If nothing else it will give me an excuse to re-read the series, which was fantastic, and if you haven't read it yet, I recommend you start immediately.

Definitely a sign of the world we live in, the twitter account @shitmydadsays has been picked up as a sitcom. I'm not sure if this is really that outside of the standard sitcom formula of "family with crank old man dad character", but the fact they attribute something to twitter is interesting.

Course, it could also be the whole thing is a scam and the twitter account was setup when the show was quietly created. The account has only been active since August 3rd, and somehow 73 tweets in three months isn't something that I could see a high powered TV exec picking up, but hey, stranger things have happened.

Merry Frakday! BSG Is Back, Ooooh Yea!

Just so no one forgets, Battlestar Galactica is back with the second half of the final season tonight at 7pm PST on Space (here in .ca anyway). A few things you need to know (at least my Canadian Shaw Cable watching brethren)...

The BSG fun actually starts way earlier, with older episodes playing at 3 and 4pm, at 5 some show called "The Circuit" (playing a special on Battlestar Galactica), then at 5:30 the "top 10 things you need to know" show to get you ready, then at 6 there is a hour long "Battlestar Galactica: The Webisodes The Face of the Enemy" show, which I hope is a compilation of all of the webisodes produced (the 3.5 webisodes were only about 4 minutes long). Then finally at 7 is the new episode "Sometimes a Great Notion".

Then after that, at 8 is a fan forum discussion show to "discuss season 4". It's a re-run, but I haven't seen it yet.

So prep your TIVOs and PVRs to make sure you catch all that you need to!
