I Am Reality TV AF And Proud Of It

I Am Reality TV AF And Proud Of It

Reality TV has been my go-to recently, and I'm ok with that.


Reality TV has been my go-to recently, I am a big fan of the Real Housewives, Chrisley Knows Best, and yes the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise. I do think that reality as a whole is more interesting to watch because it includes drama but also features some real-life moments that aren't made up.

So the saturation with reality TV is that viewers are tuning in each week to their televisions which is why reality shows get picked up for numerous seasons (Keeping up with The Kardashians is currently on its 15th season). I do love watching reality TV because it does give me a break from my own life and there are parts of reality TV that I can relate to and laugh about because let's face it college can be really stressful at the end of the day.

When seasons are on hiatus, audiences hop to the next available series. This is how I usually approach reality television, my eyes are glued to the bachelor during January, the bachelorette during May, and Bachelor in Paradise in August. It feels like it is a reality show cycle sometimes, but it is a cycle that I don't mind being a part of and I think most audiences enjoy it too.

I truly think that lower production costs and higher engagement are shaping reality TV these days because audiences enjoy sitting cozily on the couch and watching their favorite reality TV shows every season. Audiences mostly care about who gets the final rose or who are having a catfight with Lisa on the Real Housewives, they don't care as much about the production of the show and the numbers show that at the end of the day.

My life would not be possible without reality TV in it, it just wouldn't. Reality TV spices up my life weekly and allows me to truly be in my element. I am able to watch certain shows LIVE and some shows I am able to watch back from recording thanks to Xfinity. I can't wait for the next reality show to come on for me, and I hope that you get a chance to dive into reality TV as well!

Sorry, But The Final Season Of 'Game Of Thrones' Just Isn't That Good

Each character has their own plot and developments, but how they dealt with Jaime Lannister in "The Bells" didn't sit well with me.


SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for "Game of Thrones"

The writers of "Game of Thrones" do an amazing job developing characters and making them extremely likable to the viewers. One episode you can hate their guts and in the next episode, you'll catch yourself rooting for them. Each character has their own plot and developments, but how they dealt with Jaime Lannister in "The Bells" didn't sit well with me.

If you're an avid fan of the show, you'll know how far Jaime has come. At first, he was the antagonist and I hated him. He was set up to be the "perfect" guy who could do no wrong, but in reality, he's just one big wrong. The writers did an amazing job developing his character by showing his struggles and how they've humbled him to be a better person. I realized that his pompous attitude was just a facade for all the trauma he's been through. He seemed to be on the path to redeeming himself, but then he threw it all away season eight.

At the beginning of the season, he was still on his path of redemption. He kept his promise to protect the living and defend them from the Night King even when Cersei backed out. He was able to explain himself to the people of the North why he killed the Mad King and that he was justified. Brienne was even able to help him out and I was rooting for the two of them to end up together. Jaime and Brienne finally were able to express their feelings for each other, but that's when things turned sour. Jaime decided to go back to Cersei even though he seemed to be free from her grasps.

I was so livid that Jaime threw away all his character development just to go back to Cersei. Some people thought that he was going back to kill her and end this whole war for the throne, which gave me hope for his character development, but that isn't how it transpired. Jaime went crawling back to Cersei and died with her. Although it was poetic that they came and left the world together, I felt that wasn't the best end for him. He moved away from being Cersei's pawn and him just going back to her didn't feel right. It felt like a waste of a great character development plot. I felt like their ending felt rushed. Although people have varying opinions, I just feel that Jaime's character deserved better.
