YAY! I managed to get a Roundtable up this week afterall! You have no idea the amount of amazing one-liners and zingers that just sit in my inbox when I lack the ability to get one of these things up in time. If you watched last night’s performance show, then you probably have an idea of where we’re going with this. Especially if you tuned in for the liveblog.  The steaming cowpie awaits you… (more…)

MTV Reality: A Programming Note Friday, April 3, 2009

So maybe you have noticed (ok, probably not) that there hasn’t been a recap for the past 3 episodes of Real World: Brooklyn on here. For a variety of reasons I haven’t even been able to watch the past 3 episodes yet, although they are all waiting for me on the DVR. By now it seems kind of silly to go back and recap an episode from a few weeks ago when you have most likely already seen it and/or found a recap somewhere else. Truthfully, while I have always enjoyed the voyeuristic aspect of MTV’s reality fare, lately I haven’t enjoyed them at all. In taking 1.5 hours to watch and recap the shows, it has felt a little too much like work. I appreciate you all for joining me here for these past (almost) 2 years for these recaps, but the time has come to put down the pen and just watch these shows for my personal enjoyment again. So, I won’t be recapping the upcoming season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, or any other MTV reality shows. My stint at DeadOn as the “MTV guy” goes out not with a bang, but with a whimper. Thanks for watching.

Thanks to The Colonel for joining us in the liveblog last night. We had some technical difficulties (again) and I missed the chance to approve and let in the rest of the crew. One of these days, we’ll figure it out.  The Roundtable marches onward and upward though, so hit the jump for thoughts on last night’s shit fiesta of an episode

Well, I wasn’t able to get the pre-show Roundtable together for everyone today. It’s been a busy couple of days. We’ll still have a post-performace show recap up tomorrow afternoon though. We wouldn’t fail you twice. Or would I?

Anyway, your weekly liveblog starts at 8pm EST and can be accessed below:

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – The Legacy of Pedro Zamora Friday, March 13, 2009

Posted by The NY Kid in MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
add a comment

This episode opens in the evening with Sarah and Katelynn in the kitchen, with Katelynn lamenting the fact that she bounced two checks. Then we get a morning scene where Scott and JD go to a photo shoot for Scott, where he notes that “I have no doubt I’ll start getting booked.” We then get another night scene where Katelynn is walking on Scott’s back to give him a massage and she says that he is “the big brother I never had.” Then we get another morning scene where a letter is delivered to the house inviting them to a private screening of the movie on Pedro Zamora’s life.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – I Hate These People Saturday, March 7, 2009

This episode opens in the morning with Chet and Katelynn talking about her surgery. Katelynn is relieved that they are having a good conversation, and that Chet is acting mature about the subject. Meanwhile, we see Devyn meeting with some design reps at Jovani (never heard of it) who know her godmother. They let her try on a few dresses, and then she speaks to the co-owner about her career goals, which leads to her getting a job as a PR flack (well, that was easy).

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – The Inevitable House Meeting Saturday, February 28, 2009

Posted by The NY Kid in MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.

This episode opens in the morning with a montage demonstrating that the house is very dirty, followed by scenes of the guys cleaning everything up while bitching about the fact that the girls don’t do anything. After they are done JD sits down to write out a “chore list” for the house, which elicits varying reactions from the girls. Baya laughs at him, Sarah blows him off, and KL blows up, telling JD that he is not her father.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – Oh, Rats. Friday, February 20, 2009

This episode opens at night with everyone just chilling around the house when we see some uninvited guests – there are several mice running around on the floor, and the furry critters make their presence known. When JD spots them he jumps up on a bar stool, screaming like a woman. Apparently the mice have been a persistent problem, because there are traps laid out. When one of the mice falls victim, Scott takes it out of the trap and brings it into the kitchen to scare the girls (c’mon, man! that’s unsanitary! haven’t you heard of the hantavirus?). Meanwhile, Devyn is on the phone with her “semi-fiance” David when she gets another phone call from Jim, whom she had dated previously.

The Real World: Brooklyn Recap – Well Now Everyone Knows! Friday, February 13, 2009

Posted by The NY Kid in MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
add a comment

This episode opens in the morning with Katelynn dancing around the house in a pair of short-shorts. Scott and Devyn discuss the fact that they had specifically asked her not to do that, because it’s not appopriate to prance around in underwear (or is it because she used to be a dude? you closed-minded bastards!). When Sarah makes a similar comment to Katelynn, she responds that “I want it to feel as close to home as possible here.” Join me after the jump for the fallout (no it doesn’t fall out – there’s nothing there to fall out anymore).

The episode opens in the morning with Scott at a modelling agency for a photo test, where he is taking some pictures in his underwear. Later we see Scott and JD in the car talking about Scott’s ex-girlfriend Marissa, and Scott says that he is not interested in “just hooking up” even though he is single. Join me after the jump for the rest of the serious business.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – This Episode Gets Creepy Friday, January 30, 2009

Seriously, people. I hope you weren’t eating while watching this episode because it made me sick. We open with Devyn, JD and Scott driving around NYC (apparently aimlessly), discussing their plans for the rest of the lives. NOTE: This is the first season in a while where the roommates don’t have a job – all they have to do is follow their dreams. How nice for them.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – The Kids Hit Puberty Saturday, January 24, 2009

I’m sure that the 12 of you who actually still read these were absolutely devastated at the lateness of this recap. In fact, I’m confident that your entire Friday was ruined by not knowing what happened to 8 complete strangers picked to live in a house and have their lives taped. Well, sometimes real life intrudes and I just can’t watch the episodes right away. Alright, I admit it – I watched Lost on Wednesday and couldn’t watch The Real World on Thursday or Friday because I had dates on back-to-back nights with some Victoria’s Secrets models. My apologies.

Our show, which has sent many a psychoanalyist into a Freudian-tizzy about Oedipus complexes, is coming to a wrap with the Final Decisions. Will the Boys act like Men or will they give in to their mother’s wishes? And what stunt will Mrs. B pull out this time? Find out… after the jump.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – The Roommates Explore Their Fabulousness Thursday, January 15, 2009

This episode opens with Chet, JD and Sarah all sitting around talking in the bedroom. Chet finds some lube and jokes around with JD about him “trying to get some”, but his jokes turn to dropped jaws when he finds a Magnum condom. Because he’s a 12 year-old, Chet immediately runs out to tell Ryan that their roommate has an enormous package. Join me after the jump to find out what other revelations were made this episode.

Real World: Brooklyn Recap – When Will These People Get Mugged? Thursday, January 8, 2009

Posted by The NY Kid in MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.
2 comments

So this season MTV decided to head back to New York for their 3rd time in The Big Apple, settling the new cast in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Considering that they went with 8 strangers, rather than 7, this time, we have increased opportunities for one of the cast members to get mugged. After all, the introduction of an IKEA next to the Gowanus notwithstanding, this is a neighborhood that in the 1990s was referred to as one of the worst neighborhoods in America and the “crack” cocaine capital of the US. Join me after the jump to meet the new fish and see how much trouble they get into during their initial foray.

It is a train-wreck of a dating show, complete with stereotypes and oddball challenges. Sounds like it is right up my alley!

Join me after the jump for a review of Momma’s Boys, where three single guys – and their mothers – attempt to find them love, all while embarrassing themselves in front of the cameras. (more…)
