Stupid question time.

Ok so i travel a lot and really enjoy it. I have been down south all over west Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana all of those areas really and i have to say the people i have met have always been friendly and great people. How is it they put on TV shows like Appalachian Outlaws and just makes the people look completely like idiots. I don't understand this, People from that area have a very rich history and now they are being shown as inept. Why are they allowing themselves to be shown that way ?

Just another made for TV "reality show" someone gets paid. I think it less a reflection on the "actors" and more a showing of how stupid the producers think the viewers are. My current favorites are Moonshineers, showing there trade on TV and everything being filmed and the local cops not knowing, and Amish Mafia what can I say, MADE for TV

reality tv says more about the people who watch that trash than those that make it. It's meth for the brain dead

Of course that could be just because i am not used to T.V. now. I have been over seas for a while then i was out in Wyoming ranching and i didn't have time to watch T.V. so I guess i can honestly say i am just surprised at how much T.V. has changed in the last Ten years.

Very well said. If people didnt watch them, they would stop making them. We always hear about terrorist being our enemy, but I think its really us being our own worst enemy.

I'm with ya. My wife likes this one particular detective/cop drama where these FBI agents fly all over the country investigating serial killers. And every time they visit anywhere south of the Mason Dixon line, they meet up with some good-ol' boy southern-drawl Sherriff who didn't do any detective work, still uses a magnifying glass, doesn't have a computer, etc. Every time. It's a recurring theme. If they have to go down south, it's gonna be country-bumpkins who are stuck doing police work like it's the 1860's. Frankly I hate that show but she likes it so she watches it now and then.

All of these shows. "Ducky Dynasty" is another show I can't stand (Sorry, I know a lot of folks like it, I just don't get the entertainment value. At all). I especially can't stand it now that I've seen the "Robertsons" in interviews before their show came out (and even some since) where suddenly the dumb-country-bumpkin attitude is gone and they are the articulate, college-educated business moguls that they actually are. "Uncle Si", who plays the low-IQ comic relief, was a commissioned officer in the US Military and is college educated as well for crying out loud. These guys went to great schools and there's even some stuff floating around out there to suggest they really preferred country clubs and golf courses to swamps and bass boats before someone paid them to be rednecks.
