Reality TV

I dreamed that I was watching Jacques Cousteau on TV with my dad. So when I woke up I was thinking about how different "Reality TV was in the 70's to how it is today quite a difference. One of the other shows we used to watch was Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom. My mother wasn't too crazy about the bloodiness of that show. So we'd call her in the room & tell her the lions were finished eating, but of course they weren't.

What's worse lions running down their dinner or a drunk Snooki falling all over the place getting arrested? Hmm, I guess that's a matter of opinion. One is nature and one is a hot mess. IMO LOL!

One is nature and one is a hot mess! LOL! I love it. I remember watching both of the shows you mentioned growing up. Reality shows have changed a lot since I was a kid!

I remember watching both shows. Did your mom accidentally release any shoes or backhands at you for tricking her like that? LOL.

What's worse or scarier? I think a drunken Snookie doing anything is pretty terrifying. Snookie smush!!!

@Alida TV overall has changed since we were kids. It can be difficult finding "family" tv shows.

@Freaky Ha! No since my dad was usually in on it or the one telling her the coast was clear there were no flying shoes. Yeah, the thought of her being an author is quite terrifying.

I used to love Wild Kingdom. I can still remember thinking that Marlin Perkins had to be the coolest guy on television.
