How do you parody a genre that's already so good at debasing itself? The low-budget independent film Series 7 parrots the style, rhythms and calculated hype of "reality" TV. "Real people... in real danger," barks the narrator of this fatalistic derby, where contestants literally gun for each other. Watching with a paying audience that laughed smugly as each player is exploited and manipulated (usually to death), I found the movie a sad reflection of what this type of television delivers best: cheap thrills at the expense of our own dignity.
