I , along with the next guy, can admit we are entertained
by reality television. I was just watching the last
bit of that kitchen in hell and began contemplating
how much video (in minutes) would really be needed
to put this show together in clips. I think I could put together
a reality show. The trick would be how they "flash back"
to events from the currently running program. Some of
the clips are shown twice again for good effect - "Let's take
another look at what happened there, shall we?". Then,
drop in a few clips from previous episodes, show a few
things from the next, make a scale blip around for a few
seconds for each of 12 items to weigh, narrate some
bragging words with a still picture shown and -
WALLAH! A one hour show!
Keep your eyes peeled (without blinking)
or you might miss what happens next!
Or, we'll be showing it a few more times
anyway and you probably saw it in previews.
Looking back, I could have made a lot more out of
the videos I've done in the past. Consider me using
2 hours worth of clips, and cropping them for the best
parts, to put on a 4 minute show. In that regard, I
could make 4 or 5 full shows of it with a little effort.
I probably have 2 full episodes of cardboard boats
alone! Just figure that this is missing about 20
ad commercials as this one, and a full hour
could be made without a second thought. ...hmm...
Watch the Premier here before TV networks buy it up:
Maybe it needs tuned a little and some sponsors also,
but don't be surprised if I get my own reality show soon.
I'm gonna make bank!
