I decided I'd just watch reality shows I've already seen, because I'm old enough to be one of those Buzzfeed Nostalgia list people. As a Brit would say; Proper as, eh?
I was going to start with a rewatch of So Cosmo
So, because I have a bunch of other stuff going on -not limited to the movie run I want to do concurrently with this idea- this thread probably won't have a regular update schedule, but as it's me, I can promise that there will be no brevity (though I'll try for the wit) so I guess there'll be more content dumped at once that can be read over time rather than regular updates.
I also wanted to watch a show called The Dance Scene, which focused on a choreographer called Laurie-Ann Gibson (who never let you forget she worked for Lady Gaga and
Beyonce) and her dance troupe. One episode even had The Clique Girlz on (after their rebranding as Destinee & Paris). However, I cannot find any uploads -official or unofficial- online.
I'm assuming it's because the choreographer lady realized that being on reality TV is stupid and makes you look like a ridiculous idiot and just had it pulled. In fact, this site
says it's definitely not available for legal streaming. As for the unofficial sources, those are bad enough with reality TV, so she didn't need to worry. Sad. It had a killer opening sequence
This also has a short clip in which Kherington (real person I swear) is replaced by Lacee and "can't believe" that Laurie-Ann would replace her with a person that has a real name (sort of). Do you see
the quality TV we're all missing out on?
I was going to name this thread after whatever comes before the Golden Age, because a lot of (delusional) people call this current age of programming the "Golden Age" of television/streaming. However, it turns out that in Greek mythology, the Golden Age is
the first, and all the ages after it are terrible, so I have no idea why this phrase ever took off in modern TV critic circles (or in English in general, because it's been in use forever) and why nobody has ever corrected them.
Also, I like that Greek mythology has an inbuilt mechanism where everything will always just get worse.
