...and we love culture, don't we?
this is pretty hilarious. interesting how reality tv shows are starting to distill their peopling themes into tinier and tinier subcultures that we all recognize. they used to aim at putting a diverse group of people together in one house to try to ignite tensions. this is the opposite approach pretty much.next thing you know there'll be a show called "house of douchebags!"
oh my god this show truly is a masterpiece. if you didn't catch the premiere i highly highly recommend you go on over to mtv.com and check it out. the characters (and caricatures) are spot-on with the stereotypes. and while the main purpose of the show (at least after one episode) seems to be to reveal the ultimate in guidos and guidettes, perhaps that deeper message regarding family and heritage will come into play.
"how could you resist a guy who looks like Rambo with his shirt off?"
Well to follow up on that quote, I always find these shows interesting for their situational drama. While their "guido" look just seems spot on to me I find that the shows content matches exactly with what I find to be an Italian person that (from what it looks like) Staten Island and in that respect I do agree with Sidney in that they are stereo-types. However, I find that this will be just another play on a "Real World" type show. A drama of real people that is heavily edited and influenced by producers and the need for ratings. I find this show to be more of a reflection of we, the American people, need for nasty, sexual, violent television.P.S. This show looks awesome btw
I wonder how our culture has gotten to the point of thinking that if you just exploit yourself on national television, you've truly made it in the world. I think this is great and is funny in the context of watching this on our art blog. I feel more inclined to observe them then if I were to watch this on TV and actually put myself in the show. But over all watching this is like getting an inside look at an extremely dysfunctional family.
BEST SHOW EVER!!!! i mean the situation is out of his element. this is perhaps one of the first reality tv shows that dont really make the viewer want to partake in the experience, rather more of a mockery of the events
