It seems like every damn ad I see for an upcoming reality show is about some kind of bullshit show where the premise is that the participants are being lied to. Give me a break. These things are tedious enough, but when the core of them is a lie, they are unbearable. How can they be a “reality show” when the premise isn’t even reality?
Speaking of that, we are currently watching “The Apprentice” (not because I want to.) I notice that in every boardroom sequence, there is a stretch where Trump is talking, but the camera is on other people in the room and you can audibly hear the quality of both the recording and his delivery change. It sounds stilted in his “I’m reading but trying to sound natural” way. What the hell is that? Do they go back and rewrite his dialog afterwards to punch it up?
