    i love amy and sami.
    they are they best.
    they should have their own show.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Anyone with a camera in their face will act.

    But what is interesting is that we are expected to take this at face value and believe we are watching 'reality TV', or reality on TV.

    Their problem is to suspend our disbelief.

    And usually they suspend our disbelief when first they suspend their own disbelief and fully imagine the work, so then we can suspend our disbelief.

    But when they lack the ability to fully imagine their work and suspend our disbelief, they act in bad faith and say, 'this is a true story', or 'this is reality TV'.

    But what is worse is that the viewers also act in bad faith and believe they are watching reality on TV.
    Depends.

    "Reality" T.V. can be staged. Or really, I don't trust much of reality T.V. but considering these old reviews about the owners, it's funny.

    No, literally actors. Or one could say that since @Victor is, basically, on stage on this forum, he, she, or it is also acting, so he, she, or it is literally acting here.

    Of course it can be staged. Perhaps the most staged reality shows is Duck Dynasty, which is about a group of ZZtop-bearded millionaire rednecks who manufacture duck calls. In one episode, Si (the uncle) quit the company and was immediately replaced by someone from town. At the end of the episode, the new guy quit for no apparent reason and Si was back in. Seems like a typical show where, by the time the episode is finished, things are back to normal.

    I wish I was, I wish I was.

    That way I can actually talk about Jersey Shore, the Real World (do they still have that series?) Dancing with the Stars, those two singing contests(in which I forget their names,) and ad infinitum.

    @momental and I watched this yesterday. Hahaha. So awesome.
    All the other Kitchen Nightmares episodes pale in comparison. I am so disappointed.

    I had to watch it in chunks. I could only take so much of it at a time.
