TLC and Discovery Channel morph into “Reality Central”
I don’t get it, and its not that I do not enjoy a couple of the shows in the current lineup of shows presented by The Learning Channel and The Discovery Channel.
However, when is enough enough? “Dirty Jobs” is kind of fun to watch because Mike Rowe is such a likable guy. Not to mention that there is some educational value because Mike shows Americans what we all do to make our lives a little better.
But shows like the new “South Beach Classics” where Ted Vernon and his over endowed Amazonian wife Robin restore and sell classic cars in Miami Beach looks to be the straw that broke the camels back for me.
Doing a quick Google Search on the show, the first hit that came back was Ted Vernon’s website, where he has posted a bio that reads like an “almost was” which of course is worse than being a “has been.”
The bio reads like a bad story of a man that has for his entire life, been trying to be famous. He has “starred in” a bunch of mostly self produced “B” movies that I have never heard of, but nonetheless has managed to get a small bio on IMDb.
One has to figure that it was his list of stellar movie making that landed him his wife Robin. If and when you see a picture of these two standing together, like me you would probably be looking for a copy of todays newspaper and a ransom note in the picture because it looks like he may have kidnapped her.
On a side note, nothing fascinates me more than these fossilized old geezers that walk around with wives that could be their grand daughters.
She married you because she loves you . . . yeah right.
Discovery Channel should make a reality show about that subject.
So it looks like Ted Vernon finally may have found his fame and fortune.
But Ted can count on one thing. I won’t be watching because I am tired of rehashed shows about old men that walk around yelling at employees but still have to suck up to their hot wife. JD
