Let’s go on a binge.

So, if you’re like me, you’re will hear or come across a show that looks interesting. I normally know after the pilot episode whether or not I’m going to like the program, and then I binge.  Now I’m not referring to one or two shows a day. I have health issue that leave me at home, so I have a lot of time on my hands. Unless I’m writing, working for a client, or generally busy, I’m streaming my favourite TV shows. I will get into actual dramas in another post, but this one is about reality shows.

The Kardashians
Haters hate and kickers kick, but don’t think I watch this show because I like them. They are a vain, conceited, spoiled, a mentally unstable family. But it’s bloody entertaining. I binge watched as early back as I could. I’m up to date now and don’t miss an episode. Leave a comment if you love or hate this show and why.

Undercover Boss.

I just loved the sound of the title. I watched the USA version first and then the Canadian and then the UK  (and that was a waste of my TV time.)

So for those of you that have never heard of this is show. It’s where the big wigs/top brass (unless they are too well known then they get their unders to take their place) go undercover in their own company, on the front lines. Yep, they get a make over/disguise and some are truly dreadful. Then they go cleaning sewage, dinner plates, collect the garbage, work as a shop assistant or a baker and get to see how tough the jobs are. And they get to see how amazing their workers are and how tough their lives are. Sometimes they get to hear the home truths about their own company and what the staff think about the corporate heads. It’s actually a very humbling show and you can tell, that if there was any set up, it wasn’t much. It’s truly realistic and makes me cry on every episode. The only thing the annoys me about this program is that they hand out thousands of dollars to these five works that the top dog worked with to help them with living expensive, debts and student loans and costs, but what about the other thousand workers they have. Everyone has a story, everyone has problems. Just seems a little unfair.

But I love the show and don’t miss the weekly episode. It took me around three weeks to watch from season one up until now.

Face Off

Wow, from the first episode I knew this show was going to hook me. If you love special effects, monster movies, then you will enjoy this program. If you love entertaining reality shows, where the contestants are put through grueling tasks that test their talent, time management and strength both mentally and psychically, then you really have to watch this show. Contestants have but a few hours to do a foundation make up and they are unbelievable. In return they can win immunity from the spotlight challenge or get a pretty awesome prize. Then for the spotlight challenge they have to design a character from head to foot in only three days and one of them is for application. Each episode we say good bye to one of the talented make up artists, until three are left for the final.  I have nothing negative to say about this show. It’s truly fascinating and entertaining at the same time.

There are ten seasons up till now and I have binge watched six of them and still loving it.

 

Leave a comment on your favourite reality show, as long as it doesn’t have the initials BB. And let me know if you watch any of the three I have mentioned.
