'the real world' was about people who had jobs? season 1 was: a writer, a dancer, a model, an artist, a rapper, a rocker, and becky. hmm.. what did becky do? and they were activists, all driving to a pro-choice rally in dc, and most of them were smart, and savvy. the idea was so good, and watching it while i was in high school was so inspiring. they even nearly cast dave eggers in season 3 - can you imagine? there's no goals anymore. what does landon want to do with his life? i have no idea. and these group jobs they drop on them, designed of course to keep them together to stir conflict, remove the cast from any of their real passions, assuming they have any.
don't get me wrong. i love watching hot people drink, fight, and hook up. but maybe they should start a new show, on the same principle that they started mtv2 - to get back to the roots and be truly documentary of people in their 20's trying to reach their goals.
