Pretending to be a spy

Hello, everyone!

I hope this does not cause too many emotions, but Maurizio Pochettino had a good game yesterday for the PL2 side.

Ramble of the Day

I love a few types of reality shows, most of them the competition type. One of those types is the competition show that is a few things: silly in concept, the opposite of enlightening in any way, could be considered unnecessary, is most likely niche, but will likely inspire ridiculous but entertaining behavior in the contestants. The latest entry in this category? Spy Games on Bravo.

It’s a pretty easy show to figure out, in terms of concept: the contestants have to go through spy training, winner gets the prize. It’s also fairly clear that on a show where people will cause drama with one another, which is always fun on its own, but that there’s entertainment to come from contestants overrating their abilities. To me, that’s the best part.

I’m only two episodes in, and the antics have been a lot of fun. People have been necessarily and unnecessarily making enemies out of each other, and at least one of the judges roasts the contestants in each episode. To cap things off, it’s surprisingly addicting and lingers in the brain longer than a random reality show should.

tl;dr: i’ve watched two episodes of random reality show Spy Games and it really does deliver on its promise of slightly unnecessary fun.
