Interesting piece in the Washington Post – For 20 Years, a Pleasure So Guilty It’s Criminal – about the 20th anniversary of pioneer Reality TV show Cops. I remember watching that when I was younger thinking that it was as low as tv could get. How wrong I was. The article spends a bit too much time acting as publicity for the upcoming best of Cops anniversary DVD and too little time ruminating on the impact Cops has had on television in particular and society in general. Still worth checking out. Particularly notable is the fact that more than 90% of the people arrested on camera agree to sign the release that gives the makers of the show permission to use their footage. Wow.
