It’s really a pathetic these days on TV. I had been out of this connection for nearly 2 years. Now, I got a cable connection working with my laptop. And I have a remote. Within a few days, the remote’s keys are dangling out. But they still work.
The DIDs, CDDs, Boogie Woogies, Emotional Atyachaars, Love Net, MTV Roadies, aaah, the list goes on and on and on. Do I like these? Well, honestly, I want to slap those fellows. I mean, it’s been an overdoes of the so-called “Reality Shows”. And these shows don’t seem to end. They go on forever.
Roadies 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, I mean, come on, this is definitely not software. And now, there’s a new show on the TV. Kitchen Champion.
I guess, the actors weren’t getting paid enough. They were interested in such a novel reality show. And the most amazing thing is, People do like to watch such things. Weird. Well, I also spend some time on these channels when something’s cooking. But, I guess, these shows are just like the “Facebooks” and “Orkuts” for the not-so tech-savy people. Once a particular episode ends, I can see many people get on the phone and discuss about how Tulsi is going to escape from the traps of her Sasural wale, or if Parvati would leave her husband. It sometimes is very very funny.
I guess, the hardest job in all these shows is the work of the cameraman. At crucial junctures, they have to move those heavy cameras back and forth, uinfinite number of times. “Sweeeeiiissshh” “Sweeaaasshhh” and with sound effects as well. Out of the 30 minutes or so, 15 minutes goes into ads, 5 minutes in these “Swwweeeshing and Swwwaashing” and the remaing 10 minutes is full of “tears, cunning looks, abuses”. It’s just masala. I sometimes love masala, but an overdoes of it upsets my stomach.
One more thing, I hate those women cry out so loud with trillion drops of tears. I was once sleeping, really hard, and suddenly I heard someone crying loud. I rushed out to see what happened, just to realize that my friend was watching “Baalika Vadhu”. Crap.
And by the way, all these Reality Shows are copied from some similar shows running in US/UK/Canada/Australia. Come on guys, be creative. Don’t just copy and paste like me.
