It is Thanksgiving Day and I turn on the TV to find the big balloon parade, the Kennel Club Dog Show and MSNBC running Lock Up all day (a show about idiots who are housed by the penal system.) 


I don’t understand what the fascination is watching sub-intelligent incarcerated inmates acting out their antisocial behavior; and yet according to Rachel Maddow the prison shows are the highest rated shows on the MSNBC network. 

Now to add insult to stupidity, as I channel checked through they were advertising a virtual reality program with hi-def. glasses that will allow you to become a part of the prison community – live in the midst – it’s like actually being in prison.

What the fuck???

It makes you wonder what type of person is the viewer of prison shows, and wants to go that one step further and experience being a part of prison population?

I’m just asking?

  1. The only prison drama I like is Orange is the New Black.

  2. OMG! Anything would be better than watching a stupid freaking TV show "Destination America" about a camera mounted on the front of a train engine while it's traveling through Alaska. Yeah, seriously, nothing but a train track, snow and trees in the camera line. David watched that all morning long yesterday. I sat in the living room pondering his demise and where to hide the body.
