I'm hooked on Blindspot now. Wow. That's a gripper so far.
I am a member of your club. I too have never seen any of those shows either. If I can't get through the description of the show, I have already lost interest.

Me too. And I love Paint Your Wagon. Growing up my kids got used to having me sing in harmony no matter what the song was on the screen. Even Ave Verum by Mozart. What drives them crazy is I always have to not only tell them the title but who the composer is.

I love any musical. Movie or stage.

Jean Seberg looked fetching in that scene inside her wagon at night, in her bed, where she offers herself to both Clint Eastwood and Lee Marvin, as a wife.

Netflix

The Great Food Truck Race Collection
Hosted by Tyler Florence.

8 teams compete for a chance to win their very own tricked out food truck,and a $50.000 bonus prize to go with it.

I've never seen food trucks like those around here.The competitors have to go from coast to coast.Working all the way.Nothing's easy.

Very creative cooks.The food they make looks fantastic.Made me hungry.

Watched an episode last night for Onion Burgers that I'll probably have for dinner tonight.Actually already had a recipe for them.They looked sooo good!

One of our friends use to work for a Network. We were told that all those reality shows were heavily scripted. I don't watch them since then. not that I like them before. Otherwise I love TV. Growing up in Soviet union, we had two channels only, it was not till late 80's when we got the third channel. Though most of it was socialist/communist propaganda.

Not to be left out and if there wasn't enough "haunted" reality shows alerady, there's a new Alaska based reality show called "Haunted Alaska."

I believe that makes about 10 Alaska based reality shows and 5 "Haunted" based shows at present.
A night vision camera for that creepy scary look and another haunted show is good to go.

I'm thinking of all the people who seem to have a real distaste for reality shows.

I'm sure not talking about the trash that's on, but when we were watching "Alaska, the Last Frontier" I was thinking how if you only watched this show, you'd change your mind. This family started homesteading this land over 70 years ago and the resulting generations are still doing it now. It's a testament to a true American family with real values and so worthy of watching.
Charlie, you above all would love this show.
