God what a bunch of fucking dumb fucking pussies.
you would think they'd be smart enough to know there would be nothing dangerous or harmful in there?


This is about as low as reality TV gets, next to Toddlers & Tiara's

Re: Total Black Out

The video is telling me it's been blocked for copyright reasons. However, I have seen the show before, and I have to disagree that it's low reality TV on the level of Toddlers and Tiaras! Shows like that are depressing, but this show is just a funny little game, that while it isn't a masterpiece, it isn't really contributing to the depravity of humanity or culture either. Kind of like the show Wipeout. Just some silly fun, and I like it. And yes the people are overreacting, but I'm sure they choose the crying wimps for a reason.

It's all a ripoff of MXC / Takeshi's Castle, of course.

^Somehow I knew you'd come along and say that.

Don't worry, I've been well aware of MXC for over a decade now, I love the show. Wipeout isn't as good of course, certainly nowhere near as funny, but as far as ripoffs go it could be worse.

Why do you think I was called Babaganoosh for so long?

Oh, and whoever created Toddlers & Tiaras and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo should be shot without trial.

Have to agree with that statement,

along with the so called moms who put their kids through that hell.
