  1. Did anyone see that last night? So the whole damn show is a scripted HOAX,
    pretending to be reality TV?

    If I had to guess, I'd say that they're all unscripted, in the sense that
    nobosy is saying lines, but the situations are staged so as to create drama.

    Shock horror!
    Professional scriptwriters make more entertaining television than the
    aimless ramblings of the average joe?
    Someone should be told!

    Isn't that what art is about?

    I don't think Jim Neighbors was really as stupid as he made out to be on
    Gomer Pyle either.

    I honestly thought it was incredible editing. Take their everyday life and edit

  15. My guess is that it's all "real" (i.e., real life captured by cameras
    running nearly 24/7 then heavily edited to flesh out story lines, etc,
    like most reality shows).

    However, the final episode was mostly scripted as an elaborate practical
    joke. The fact that so many people are doubting whether the whole
    series was scripted just speaks to how effective the final episode's
    "gag" was.

    If someone put a bunch of TV cameras in your house and broadcast to
    millions of people, do you think you would act the same as usual? Doubtful..

    last night's finale showed CUE CARDS and going over lines to get it right.
    They showed the classic "I love you all but you're all fucking mad" being done
    over and over again till Ozzy got it right.
