“Reality shows – People who aren’t actors, are put into situations by people who aren’t writers. They are reacting in a way they think you would like to see them behave if this was a real situation, which it is not, and you are passively observing it. You are watching an amateur production of nothing.” ~ Stand-up comedian and comedy writer, Dana Gould
