Even more Ball State pride

This involves my alma mater, too! *deeper sigh*

You know they picked a "podunk" college town (in the spirit of Tommy Lee) so that they could find more people (i.e. students) willing to pull stupid but harmless stuff in order to get "arrested" by the so-called celebrities.  I never thought in a million years that I would see "glamour shots" of downtown Muncie during primetime TV.  The world has truly gone mad.

I've heard a member of the development team for this program actually went to Ball State, so it's not like they just randomly chose a losercollege out of hatred :P

losercollege

Ah, that's good to know. I just thought they liked the fact that the word "ball" was going to be consistently used. ;) Don't hate on the Cardinals, ya'll!

Haha, yeah, it was so funny to see all this taking place in Indiana. Really makes you proud, no? ;-)

Am I the only one who thinks they're using the term "celebrity" a little too broadly?

But, on the upside, this show does have me seriously considering becoming a reserve deputy. I mean, if LaToya Jackson can do it...

LaToya

That's why I said "so-called celebrities" above. I only watched for about 10 minutes or so towards the end of the show, but I did see LaToya pointing a gun and the look of incredulous disbelief and fear on Jack Osbourne's face. Ha, ha, ha! I'd be scared too. I think they faked her gunshots on the target so they could keep her on the show.

Re: LaToya

Yeah, her ineptitude is astounding.

But, I kind of look at this show as being a good indication that "reality TV" is running out of ideas. And I, frankly, welcome that. I'm ready for TV to fake it back a notch, and start making some decent fiction (instead of bad reality) again.
