TLC, helping the crushingly lonely daydream about having interesting friends to listen to.

Later on however she feels unwell and starts vomiting and throwing up.

Man, that sucks. I don't ever remember vomiting and throwing up at the same time.

Bucky Katt: The Daily Fail is making all this up, right?  Right?


No, she got food poisoning and the guy hurt his foot and complained a lot about it, but the DM is correct. There was no mention that the woman was given medical treatment and a BRAT type diet to help her recover, nor were viewers told the man broke some of his toes when he fell.

He was complaining a lot, but knowing that he had broken toes makes me more sympathetic towards him. I've broken toes before myself & I know how painful it is.

Yep. It's a reality show from the Discovery Channel.

*sigh* You know, at first I was all hyped. I thought "Yes, even these Brits watch this crap." Then I saw the watermarks. Now I am sad.

Speak for yourself. I want to see REAL "Survivor" where the winner is the last one left alive.

I watched it the other night, or I should say the wife did.  Saw  his ass way too much and hers not enough.  Her straps were long enough to keep her bag covering hers.  His should  have.
 
2013-06-27 02:59:06 AM  
Next you're going to tell me Survivor isn't about people surviving on a deserted island.

No, sir, I won't believe it.

So you have to eat a diseased turtle liver and then get violently sick to get your 15 minutes of fame? That's some desperate people.

They're naked, but only the camera guy and the video editor get to see it.

Didn't the BBC do something where they dropped a guy in the middle of nowhere, Canada, to let him survive and he ended up going crazy and radioing back that he was king of the insect people?

The point being that normal people are not going to live through stuff like this.

yup. and he had food, guns, fishing equipment, etc.. He just couldn't hack the isolation.

what would be fun is to have someone that shows up at an airport and gets sent off to somewhere to just deal with the urban situation as a tourist in a place with few tourists. Have to deal with language barriers, a lack of familiarity the surroundings etc etc. Something like an Idiot Abroad but without anything arranged in the destinations

Were the Discovery Channel executives too stupid to get the cast and crew to sign nondisclosure agreements?

Good thing she didn't barf at the same time, that could have been lethal.

Ray_Finkle: So we're suppose to be upset they didn't let somebody die?


and that, in a nutshell is the essentially problem with the "survival" tv show genre.   If survival is to be interesting, it has to be under conditions where there is a non-negligible chance you WONT survive.  But sine were not debased enough to let snuff TV be a thing, this means that all surviva shows are ultimately fakes

"Food poisoning" is not a function of "turtle liver".

Turtle liver is not food.

Silly buggers.

Ah so it is faked unlike that jeff probst survivor show where the contestant passes out in the fire and all they do is keep filming as his flesh slowly melts away?

Coming this Fall: The Amazing Farce.

12 contestants are dropped off in downtown Islamabad. Carrying only an American Flag, a tin of Spam and a copy of Mein Kampf, their goal is to reach the American Embassy in Kabul.

Who wins?
Who makes it past city limits?

The first one to pull out the copy of Mein Kampf and say "Check it out guys!  I hate the Jews too!"

The existence of this show depresses me even more than that of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO or
THE AMISH MAFIA, because it means that the descent of Discovery Communications into a purveyor of
total exploitative trash is complete.

This, and the fact that they are now hawking a hagiography of their 'visionary CEO' on the air.

You don't have to go that far, though.

Mere locker room talk will you can get sued decades later, and you can lose an entire business enterprise because no one believes you regret it.

Like when the "Amazing Race" came out, I was hoping that they'd just drop a bunch of people with no money and no IDs in some random remote country and say, "See you in New York City. You have 30 days to get there."

It turned out not to be that. Dang.

there WAS a show like that...can't recall it's name but I never saw that they aired ore than one eipsode...which was too bad.,.that was kinda interesting as they started in outer Mongolia

When the executive producer of Naked and Afraid was scouting the location he was bitten by a Fer de Lance snake and ended up losing most of the flesh on his foot. It was pretty gnarly. They then gave the contestants the option of not doing the show, but they decided to go ahead. The male contestant actually killed, and then they ate, another Fer de Lance. Fer de Lance is french for "not to be farked with".
 
2013-06-27 02:38:01 PM  
This is an OUTRAGE! The producers should have let the woman die for our entertainment.

Give it time.  We're moving closer every day.  In the meantime enjoy the sheer comedy brilliance of the producers of this crap:


In an interview with Salon.com, executive producer Denise Contis has denied they were taking advantage of the contestants.

She said: 'We didn't develop the show to be exploitative, ever.
