The Real World: Key West

Just a public service announcement to any interested parties that The Real World's 17th season premiered last night. Entertainment Weekly gave it a D-, possibly the lowest grade given to any new spring show, but don't let that stop anyone from catching its second episode, slated for 10PM PST/EST March 7.

And just to head off the inevitable question, yes, Washington is in the Pacific Standard Time Zone.

Don't worry... I was already counting down the days and wouldn't miss it. Just in case some you did miss it, or you want to watch it over and over, you can catch it just about every other hour of every day. Don't forget about "The Inferno"... things are really heating up!
P.S.- Don't trust ratings... they were probably judged by some 40+ old man who is out of touch with our generation. Plus, ratings don't accurately measure how great the drama is. I'll be the judge successful reality TV shows... "Flavor of Love" is also a classic.

the day constantly inebriated, polygamous, self-centered mass-com majors constitute my generation is the day I renege on my membership.

Oh please Jav, the Real World tackles tough, relevant issues that people in ur generation deal with. Issues like "Can I tell the difference between a Natty Light and a Flat Tire Ale after 7 hours in a bar?" and "the nature of conflict between stoned 19 year-olds fighting over peanut butter". Oh, and don't forget my personal favorite, "basics of home pregnancy tests". If these aren't important and relevant, I don't know what is.

I've got your back Jav! I do this crazy thing called The "Real" Real World \Santa Cruz\! Others have called it doing my homework and having a life. Don't get me wrong, I was a major Daria and Bevis and Butthead fan, but MTV has made scrambeled eggs out of most of our generations greay matter.

Some of you underestimenate the influence the real world has had on our generation. The real world Miami taught me about AIDS. The real world Las Vegas taught me about alcoholism. And the Real World taught everyone about reality TV... Which brought us "The Amazing Race." I'm not going to lie, the website to download the application for "The Amazing Race" is bookmarked on my laptop.

1st- Jav, polygamy is being married to more then one women which we all know is gross and irrelevant. Also, "mass-com majors?"... Seems a little weak and I would expect better. I got nothing for the inebriated part. At least it's not the 70's.

2nd- Frodo, It's "Fat Tire" not "Flat". Also, I don't remember a fight over peanut butter.

3rd- Spidey, your eggs were scrambled before "real world". Also, we all realize the "real world" really isn't the real world.

4th- Hula, there is no comparison.

Finally- I was a little disappointed with the first episode but not discouraged. The season is young!

spidey, if everyone's grey matter is scambled, does that mean the youth will soon suffer from a epidemic of parkinson's disease?

(sorry, cheesy psychology joke... bruin, please laugh.)

Oh Daff.

Polygamous: adj. 1. Having more than one sexual mate at a time. [Antonym: monogamous] 2. [irrelevant]

From the Greek roots polu, meaning "many" or "much" and gamous, meaning "a specified number of mates."


For Mormons, it's marriage; for participants of "The Real World," it's simply doing the nasty with a whole bunch of people.
