When you watch TV are you a screamer or a grabber? I’m both! My friends and family HATE that about me! They try to get me to watch TV by myself because I can get pretty bad.
truTV is one of the shows that can and does bring out the worst in me! It features real events, not reality, just actuality. truTV is hilarious. Its cringe worthy. Its mesmerizing. Its real events that will cause you to react! I call it modern day life on steroids. We know these things happen, they just don’t happen to most of us. Watching their shows makes me gasp, then scream, then grab my teen’s arm. I also shake him as if he could somehow do something! Even with all these intense reactions, I can’t turn away.
Prince and I are the “did you see that” type of people who slug or grab the person near us when we get excited. Big K, on the otherhand, is a “yeller” who yells at the people on the show as if he could change the outcome. Run! Close the door! He’s coming! Move out of the way! He yells all this and more. My younger brother has already told us he refuses to watch anything with us. He claims we don’t let him enjoy the program. I think we actually make it more enjoyable. Wouldn’t you agree? I mean its not good, unless it can solict a reaction. Don’t you agree?
I do have to warn you some of the shows are not appropriate for younger kids, like Forensic Files. I think these would definitely cause nightmares in the young ones. truTV also has several shows that can be seen by everyone, like the World’s Wildest Vacations Videos. This is one of our favorites. It can cause the most reaction from my family. While watching this show we become the people we categorize as “did you see that”, “yeller” and everything in between! The show is HILARIOUS! My favorite clip can be seen by clicking HERE. Its a sample of what you see on the program. This clip caught them when they were on a date. I mean seriously, can you imagine going on a date and having the man react like that?! Hilarious!
Just remember watch truTV with caution, because when the stories are real, the effects are actual! Ultimately, thats what makes entertainment! Wouldn’t you agree?
