  • Wish The Real World would try out some new cities instead of returning to those they’ve already been to. Why not Kansas City, Omaha, or Detroit? Have they ever even done one in Atlanta? Or how about they get really creative and go somewhere like Jackson Hole Wyoming, Anchorage Alaska, or Fargo North Dakota?

    • Do you have any idea how boring things are in Fargo? Blue Laws, Scandinavian beet farmers in the “Big Town” for shopping, an automatic meat slicer at the supermarket [whoop whoop] etc. Fargo makes Omaha seem like Manhattan.

    • I loved him on it.

      Sheldon: This may surprise you, but I didn’t have many friends growing up.

      Arthur: No, I figured that.

  • Excited about Olive Kitteridge. Sounds very David Lynch-ian, plus I’ll follow Richard Jenkins anywhere.

  • Those real worlds have gotten old. Its not like how it used to be, they are all just wannabes who want instant fame. Just like the rest if mtv.
