No lies, this episode starts with an in media res fast-cut montage of THE GOOD TIMES and then THE BAD TIMES and THE DRAMA and then cuts to a “TWO MONTHS EARLIER” caption screen like we’re watching Lost or something. I wish. Even Kate was only half as annoying as your average Real World housemate.
So I totally failed with the last one, huh. I think I lasted until maybe episode 7 or 8 before I couldn’t handle anymore of those petty man-children bitching at each other over absolutely nothing.
But, NEVER FEAR, the new season is here and I’m back. It’s set in Las Vegas (again) and they’re living in a converted suite at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, just like people in the real world do. Here’s an oh-so-pally MTV promo photo:
They all look so friendly towards each other. I wonder what’s going to happen when things GET REAL?
OK, I’m really bad at keeping to a schedule. But don’t worry, I’m not going to write about Jersey Shore, even though the season premiere was triple-A badass. Those people don’t deserve my ire, they don’t know any better. These people, though…
This week, on The Real World:
IT’S SUPER BOWL TIME!!! Also, yes, that’s a dog parade.
WOW POOR SCHEDULE. I actually wrote 90% of this post close to a week ago, but I’ve been busy with music festivals and sticking together record sleeves (DIY4LIFE) and having my girlfriend stay with me and apparently writing about The Real World is not a fun activity for my girlfriend to sit and watch me do like WHATEVER, but I’m planning another update over the weekend and then, as of next week, this blog should settle into a regular pattern of updates as the season progresses.
I’m also currently debating writing about the new season of Jersey Shore, which starts TOMORROW in the US. I’M VERY EXCITED.
This week on The Real World:
Mardi Gras! Ryan is a sex pest! Knight is a sex pest! MARDI GRAS!
