This is the most important thing you’ll read today! It’s like a twist of color on the tweed surface of life.
Yeah, I’m talking about The Devils Ride. You know… the “reality” TV show about a couple San Diego motorcycle clubs who are sightseers on a mission.
Season 3 started last week and here I thought the Biker Club ‘rode through the pearly gates’ and was buried, but somehow the show was resesitated for another season.
Sure every time I mention the show I get hits. But, I’m not looking for Google pennies because I don’t run ads! I’ve been consistent. About the show’s producers, the reality TV “actors” and how the show leaves many of us feeling embarrassed.
For the uninitiated here is a quick recap:
The Devils Ride is a “reality” TV show about “outlaw” motorcycle clubs centered in San Diego. Spoiler Alert: In case you didn’t know, reality TV employs screenwriters whose job is to feed the character dialogue. Viewers get to watch The Laffing Devils and the Sinister Mob Sindicate, two faux enemy clubs battle for the right to dominate the ‘Dago’ turf they call home. It seems these clubs can’t have a conversation unless they literally breathe on each other.
While most of the club members have blown their chances at any Father of the Year award, they’ve assured themselves placement in the annals of reality-TV history thanks to their affinity for odd behavior and outrage as a form of communication.
For Season 3, viewers will witness even more stink eye stares, and name calling. It’s just some of the many incendiary moments on tap by the producer’s that are staples of this riveting reality TV show. And don’t forget that male announcer with a deep bass voice employed every 7 minutes from a commercial break — the booming phrase, “in a world where…”
I remember when The Discovery Channel started out as an educational media format and was more polished than PBS. These days they have put a lot of time and effort into insuring that its credibility is no greater than that of a tabloid seen at the supermarket checkout.
