TGB Episode 175: When Reality Television Meets The Big Screen

October 25, 2013

The Golden Briefcase - Bad Grandpa

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, hosts Tim and Jeremy go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Reality TV in the Cinema World, in honor of Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa in theaters. The guys talk over some of the few instances where reality TV has made its way to the big screen and which genres work best. They also pontificate on the nature of reality TV and how that translates due to moral ambiguity and the agenda of reality shows. The two include more reality genres they'd like to see and discuss methods.
