Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Premise 1:
I can't stand most "reality" TV shows, in concept or in execution.
Premise 2:
I saw "Last Comic Standing" (an NBC game show/soap opera/stand-up showcase) last night and enjoyed it.
I enjoy only those reality TV shows that dramatize some aspect of my life.
Potential for Growth:
The obvious.
