I have NEVER watched
American Idol, Survivor, Lost or any other reality TV show...

Does this make me strange?

4. Oh wow, LOST is a reality show? How cool is that!
And here I thought it was all make believe to have polar bears and smoke monsters on an island that brings down planes through its own electromagnetic anomalies.

5. AI isn't reality... it's a talent competition/poplarity contest
I don't know that there's anything inherently "real" about reality show.

8. Yes, but strange in a very good way.
Now, if you turned off your TV entirely you would be even stranger in an even better way. :)

13. Not at all
I have only watched one episode of American Idol. It was a beginning of the season episode, and quite frankly, I was disgusted at the schadenfreude celebrated at the expense of one young lady who was obviously mentally ill.

25. Sorry for posting and running away like that
Had to work ya know...

Thanks for the input. Lisenting to progressive radio, I thought something waswrong with me the way the hosts tend to spend the first 40 minutes of their shows recapping the crap from the night before...

I just don't get it I guess

28. Well, if that makes
you strange, you've got some company. I rarely watch TV so I'm pretty clueless when the topic of conversation are the shows that you mention.

And to DU, and especially the Lounge. You'll like it here.

30. Yes.
But you're an Edwards fan, so you're forgiven. :thumbsup:

...that said, being strange isn't necessarily a bad thing. (oh, and Lost isn't a reality show...)

35. Me neither....
If I want to watch the antics of real people, all I have to do is go outside.

The appeal of reality shows truly mystifies me.

36. Not as long as you turn in to watch
Pirate Master this summer.

Come on-buried treasure, mutinies, people dressed like and talking like pirates and everything takes place on a ship.

My daughter says that if they have a softball game on the same night she'll skip softball for this show. She loves pirates.
