No More Blog

Hi, friends! My apologies, but it turns out that last week was the final blog for Kid Nation. For those of you still watching, I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! Now go watch The Next Great American Band. I need some comments over there, too! And thanks for your comments these past few weeks. read more

Rating a New Round of Reality

Now is not the time to be a reality-TV snob. The reality of the TV business is that this genre is here to stay — and it may come in especially handy during the writers' strike. Like every form of TV, reality is capable of exhilarating highs: This fall, I'd include Dancing with the Stars (with its most appealing cast to date), Survivor (with its exotic China backdrop) and the recently returned Emmy champ The Amazing Race. Naturally, there are also innumerable lows (most celeb-reality). Here's a quick look at some recent contenders that have caught my interest — or disinterest, as the case may be. Project Runway Reality check: Finally, cable's hit design show is back, still the best and most flamboyantly entertaining of TV's skill-based competitions. The personalities pop as colorfully as the outrageous costumes they create. "Life is too short to have on a bad outfit," says one of the contestants, whic read more

"The Root of All Evil"

This is the toughest blog of the entire season for me. Why, you ask? Well, other episodes of Kid Nation might not have been great, but at least they were entertaining. This was a train wreck. So I stamp the big black advisory sticker over this first paragraph and tell you that if you are reading this and going to get annoyed by some negativity, then you might just want to stop now and come back next week. However, if you also thought this week was a train wreck, by all means read to the end. The one thing I won’t do is lie to you and put a rosy spin on this blog just for the heck of it. I am nothing if not honest, so my apologies to all who'll hate what’s to come. Every show is allowed a train wreck now and again, right? Right?So let’s look at some of the reasons why this episode was bad.The No. 1 reason has to be: Who the heck is Nathan? Yes, who is this kid? I don’t ever recall seeing him before, and tonight he wins a gold star. And does he have any expression ... read more

"Bonanza Is Disgusting"

This week on Kid Nation, "The Taylor & DK Show." This is truly getting out of hand with Taylor. The only way you can possibly like this girl is if you too are a lazy, whiny 10-year-old beauty queen. Every time I see her that song pops into my head, you know that one that goes, “If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife.... ” Can you just picture what this is leading to? Six years from now we’re going to see Taylor on that sweet-16 birthday show complaining about how she got an Escalade instead of the BMW that she wanted. Then a few years later, if she keeps her looks, she’ll win the heart of some 44-year-old man at one of her pageants and maybe she’ll get to be on a “reality stars” season of Real World/Road Rules Challenge. OK, I’m putting way too much thought into a girl I will thankfully never see again in a few months, but you see where I’m going. Back to present day. I hope that she is ... read more
