wthiswrongwithmi tells us more.

Hey everyone, I am the OP. To answer your questions, I am a student in a ~50 person lecture. My professor was compiling a huge list of examples of bad tv on the board from students, and I threw up a few notoriously bad TV shows (like Keeping Up with the Kardashians). I vaguely remember seeing something on TV about GGW (a reference in another show). In the clip, a lot of girls partying and one of them flashed the cameras, but it was definitely blurred out. I thought it was just a risqué reality show with partying/clubbing, fighting, and a bit of blurred out nudity (like the Jersey Shore). Yes, I did get made fun of (the jerk behind me said, "I'm pretty sure that's a movie" in a snarky tone, and some people were like "…whaaaaaat?"). I kinda just looked around and was like, "isn't that a reality TV show?" A few people giggled, and the professor just blinked and moved onto the next person. Normally I don't talk about stuff I know nothing about, but participation is a significant portion of my grade, so I always try to participate any chance I get.

Well is it not tasteless tv? Technically it is because you could probably buy the porn package and get it

YDI for not knowing what you're talking about OP

Yea. OP why would you even include it in the lecture if you hadn't known what it was? YDI

I'm not gonna lie, I thought it was a reality show too...

Oh my gosh me too but I wouldn't ever mention it to someone else since I had no idea what it was

I agree, I don't see the problem here. It's bad that you didn't know what you were talking about OP, but in my opinion porn is an equally, if not better, example of bad TV.

Why the hell would you just not research your material before showing it, OP? O.o it could just as easily have been an Oscar-winning movie, and there you would be looking like an idiot for not knowing because you didn't even look at the first five minutes -.-

But how can you try to use an example of something without knowing what it is?

Show it anyway

It is a tv show it just isn't a reality show

I would say it is a reality show... its a presentation of drunk girls being nasty!

OP should have just done more research before presenting on something she didn't know about.

That sure was a wild assumption you made, thinking it was reality TV.

Yeah, especially since the name of the show is "Girls Gone Wild"

I tried people. I tried...

No! No, no, not 6! I said 7. Nobody's comin' up with 6. Who works out in 6 minutes? You won't even get your heart goin, not even a mouse on a wheel.

that's the first thing I thought of too!

and its mainstream porn at that... at least branch out a bit next time

Talk about music next. I suggest reviewing "The Porn Song" by Sarah Silverman. What could possibly go wrong with that?

System of a down: violent pornography

Either way it is a good example of bad tv.

Well, you probably got their attention!
