I need brain candy reality TV shows


  • Pitcrew

    The trashier the better.

    I am not a fan of Real Housewives or The Bachelor.

    But to give you an idea of what I do love:
    Anything Gordon Ramsey (But I've seen them all, UK and US)
    Here Comes Honey Boo Boo (all time favorite until I found out about the pedo)
    Hoarders (tied for all time favorite)
    Married at First Sight
    90 Day Fiance
    Judge Rinder (not most other judge shows though)
    Nightwatch

    Anyone got any suggestions? I'm expecting a pretty stressful next two weeks at work and this is how I often unwind when I get home for an hour or so. If you don't want to out yourself as a trashy tv person you're welcome to PM me.



  • I don't see Great British Baking Show on your list here so if you haven't watched it please do, it is so wholesome.



  • I THINK they now air, up to date, the Great British Baking Show on Netflix. I love it. It is the best 'cuddle up on the sofa with the kitties' show in the world IMO.

    It also got me through my recent dental work (they have netflix in the patient rooms at my dentist).

    I always recommend Masked Singer.

    They're not trashy, but. I think they're great.

    Nailed It on Netflix. I don't think it's trashy but it's fucking hilarious.

    THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS! I binge-watched all of these, then caught up on currents (new ones were airing every Friday, the season's final was last week), then dug out the Masterclass and Holiday 'side' shows (MC is Mary and Paul showing how to make some of the technicals right, and the holiday ones are bakers that didn't get Baker of the Week in different seasnos getting to come back and do holiday bakes for Baker of the Holidays or somesuch) and wow that show made me a little bit less despairing for humanity.

    It also inspired me in a binge re-watching of The Mighty Boosh, if you groove on Noel Fielding and/or Julian Barratt. I found that on Hulu.

    I know it's not reality tv but being on the subject of British media and all The Young Ones turned 35 years old today and it's streaming in various places on the web and could be a good option for blowing off steam.

    god I still quote bits of this show to myself all the goddamn time.

    'do you think the black bits in bananas are spider eggs?'

    NO ONE AROUND ME IRL WOULD EVER GET THESE THINGS SO I JUST HAVE TO WHISPER THEM TO MYSELF.

    Goth Juice is the most powerful hairspray known to man, made from the tears of Robert Smith.
