I have no opinion of the “best”, but for the “worst”, I nominate both the House and Senate impeachment hearings. Both the D’s and the R’s were more boring than an infestation of weevils. The most excitement was wondering if the speakers who had the 5 minute bloviating limits before yielding time to someone else would actually make it. And I wonder who was doing the timing?
I kept hoping for some one to come out with a hook like the old Gong Show. They made me wish for reruns of Big Brother reunion shows.
@phendrick Really? That was worse than this Coronageddon second season shitshow from the Orange Menace? Or the first season, the 2016 Republican primaries, with grown men with college degrees (from Wharton) throwing feces at each other and jerking off like a pack of primates on Wild Kingdom?
@phendrick And your position is that the sociopathic narcissist, serial philanderer, pathological liar, xenophobic bigot, and crime family autocrat stinking up the joint at 1600 is the paragon of American virtue and values?
Wow. Please stay out of the deep end of the gene pool.
The wife and I fell in love with the holiday competition shows on food Network. Our favorite was the “Halloween Wars” where they make these large scenes with carved pumpkins and sweet potatoes with cake and glass made of sugar.
I like Gold Rush and Deadliest Catch.
Although both are starting to feel like just the same stuff over and over after 10+ seasons each.
I’m losing interest in Deadliest Catch, but I still get a vicarious thrill whenever they weigh up their gold on Gold Rush.
The Dakota boys’ white water dredging is pretty insane and exciting to watch, too (though the son is kind of a dick).
@mike808 I’ve watched bits of those here and there, but don’t find them as compelling for whatever reason.
Deadliest Catch, in particular, is very well made documentary TV, IMO.
They do have to manufacture some drama in the edit, unfortunately, but I have a lot of respect for the people who shoot it.
