Roadies nahi Toadies

The Indian Media Revolution has brought forth this host of reality shows on different television channels. Life is stranger and more interesting than fiction. MTV Roadies is just one more of these shows … my wife watches it regularly. In fact, so regularly that even I have started watching that damn show.

For people who already know about the show, the first show was a big hit with the youth … bikers especially. Somehow the attitude expressed by the show has transmogrified into something else now.

What I see nowadays on the show can be summarized in one word – immaturity. I didn't realize that teens can be so stupid and immature. The participants scheme, plot, make idiotic plans … think that they are oh!so powerful and determined to prove themselves. But for what for Chris sakes? They only end up proving idiots of themselves. I sometimes feel sad for the first Roadie, Ranvijay that he has to put up with this.

Then again, I haven't seen the first season.

Is it that the roadies these days are immature? I refuse to accept. I mean a whole bunch of adults can't possibly be so immature.

I have this sneaking feeling that the entire thing is doctored. In other words, they act the way they do, only bcoz they are asked to act that way.

Just look out for the number of times they say "f***" in every phrase. I've nt seen any other real person do that.

@LC - Friends, Frasier, How I met your mother, Scrubs .. yes :) ... now those are worth a hoot and a half
@Mahul - Hmmm, they could be doctored, but who would want to be pictured as such idiots :)

I'm glad that I'm still divine, for I haven't yet watched a single complete episode of Roadies.

Thank you god! My wife too hates them!

Nowadays Reality Shows rule the TV..they actually raise the trp's..well i agree Roadies have completely degraded their level of being a BIKER to being a BITCHER

But since i like the concept of the challenges and task placed in front of immature brats..i like to watch the show..
So here's CHEERS to the best fighter and diplomat who will be the next ROADIE

Reality show is what's killing good entertainment in USA. Hope that does not spill over into India (or too late??). First they had "The Bachelor", now they have a similar show, except the girls have not only appeal to the bachelor, but also to his mom!! Really, people find something like this entertainment?

And don't get me started on the worst of them all - American/Indian/British Idol!!!
