Recap: Naked and Afraid Uncensored

Naked and Afraid Uncensored

Aah the clip show. Once the mainstay of the sitcom or drama, where lazy writers would give us a look back a past events as an easy way to create an episode, now it’s the even lazier way of Reality TV producers to create not one — but two hours of programming out of old footage! Naked and Afraid adds minutes of extra (but not interesting) footage and factoids that appear on screen. It’s the Pop-Up Videos of reality TV. Florida Everglades with Ryan and Amber First, we basically watch the entire episode of Ryan and Amber. I’ve never wanted … Continue reading

Alaskan Bush People Fake

As we prepare for the midseason* premiere of Discovery Channel’s Alaskan Bush People May 29, Discovery Channel presents this “Wild Times” recap special, in which the Browns discuss memorable, extreme and most certainly not fake moments from their show so far. Because I am a complete disappointment to my family, I’m going to recap this recap show. *Discovery has started promoting this as a new season, yet I’ve not heard any mention of “Season 3.” So we’ll just call this Season 2B until the Supreme Court hands down their decision.

matt-paxton-hoarders-family-smile

When Lifetime debuts its Hoarders reboot, Hoarders: Family Secrets, Thursday night, fans of the A&E original will be pleased to see some very familiar faces have returned to the Hoarders fold — including extreme cleaning specialist Matt Paxton. Paxton says that even though A&E pulled the plug on Hoarders in 2013, reruns on the show’s new Lifetime home have kept the series — and serious discussions about this very real mental disorder — alive. “It’s been pretty surreal to see the response on social media — for me, on social media it never ended,” Paxton says. “New people were finding the show and they were … Continue reading

One Feud Goes Overboard! Recap: Little Women: NY, Episode 9 “Puerto Rico Fever”

Little Women: NY, Episode 9

When friends on reality TV fight, why is their solution always to go on vacation, or throw a party? Don’t they know that most of my fights happen on vacations or at parties? Jason and Jazmin meet with the group after the tenseness of Dawn’s charity auction. Jordanna is notably absent; she’s made a lame “I’m not feeling well,” excuse. She’s still mad at Jason for underselling her picture of her lady-parts, and he’s still mad that she called him a coward for deciding not to move out of his parent’s house. Obviously, Jordanna really overvalues both her painting skills … Continue reading
