Television

Shipwrecked

I may be over Big Brother now but unfortunately my love of Time Team’s brand of non-event TV programming (not strictly true but it is certainly one of the least eventful programmes to go through so many series) has resulted in me coming across Shipwrecked. Two teams, each on separate islands do reality TV “surivival” while trying to attract recruits to their island with the winners being the island with the most occupants.

Now I have a new crap TV addiction because the series has just hit the point where faction and dissent has started to appear. It only takes a group of eight to fall apart apparently, four and five and you are too dependent on one another to get the job done.

It’s that weird mix of grotesquerie and insight that makes reality TV work.
