Reality TV

Reality TV. Other then watching bits and pieces of some random reality show, there is not much that I know about it. Once in a while, I get interested into it just because I saw the first show of the new season and am very curious about it. Many of those shows use original people instead of professional actors. Other shows only feature professional actors or musicians. Those original people who are involved in the random reality show may act out, goal oriented, or the people are push to their limits. Some reality TV take place in exotic locations or places while others take place in a large city, designing and making clothes or performing in talent reality shows like Dancing with the Stars or American Idol. Another type of reality show is the everyday life or shows that involve some kind of a dating game.
Chuck Klosterman says in his book that Americans are 'without even trying, American TV watchers have developed an amazingly, sophisticated view of postmoderism, even if they would never use the word postmodern.' Postmodernism means to view a social and cultural reality is a human conversation. It refers to an art moment and characteristics are selective use of earlier style elements that opposite social or psychological depth, blurring between pop culture and sophisticated culture.  
When it comes to reality TV, I don't know much about it since I don't watch too much of it, but when I do I do see things like at times that people who are not famous can be very dramatic and do act out at times. It is always interesting to watch when those same people are force to take on a new challenge and interesting to see what their reaction to this new challenge. Sometimes they like it, sometimes they do not.
