All 7 original cast members of “The Real World” Season 1, which invented reality TV, are reuniting 30 years later to move into the same NYC loft and do it again.  Instead of sex and alcohol, this season promises walkers and Metamucil.  This will be one of the first shows to premiere on yet another new streaming service, Paramount +, in March. I have no idea what this one even is but enough with the streaming services already.

Paramount + will be taking the Place of CBS all Access.  Along with all the CBS shows it will also have shows from BET, Comedy Channel, MTV, Nickelodeon, & The Smithsonian Channel.  Also all the movies from Paramount

Good to know I won’t have to buy this one.

Her grandchildren are probably proof that she’s not.

Agreed on the hotness.
I really liked the first season.  Season 2 was OK but Tami & Beth were cunts & Jonh the cuntry singer was a whiny puss.
Season 3 was tolerable, but after that it sucked.  People were just trying to get themselves spinoffs & gigs MTV.

Hard to believe it’s been 30 years. Won’t give this a shot since I have no interest in another streaming service but it’s a cool idea if nothing else since they were the ones to kickoff reality television. It’ll be more like Legends House than anything else.

My god, how is this 30 years old?

Yeah, basically the first three seasons were outstanding, and there had been nothing like that on television before. Off the top of my head, I remember more people from the '94 show (Puck, Pedro, Judd, the asian chick) than '92 and '93. The big issue with the '93 season was when the black dude got accused of trying to "rape" the white chick, although it was nothing more than a pillow fight. They turned the cameras off and made him leave the show. Just imagine how that would go over in 2020. LOL. What a time to be alive.

I only seen one season of the show that was the 2002 season which was in Chicago. The only reason why I watched it was the ex wife watched it. Happy to say I never seen any other episode from any season.

It wasn't the white chick.  It was the black chick Tammi.  He tried to pull the covers off her.  The white chick Beth said it was rape and got Tammi all worked up, and since none of the housemate witnessed it they assumed their story was true.

Earlier in the season Beth had lifted Dom's covers while he was sleeping, but Dom was drunk and didn't feel violated so they didn't boot her.

The key thing is that David thought it was funny but it "wasn't not funny!"  God, that Beth was such a cunt.  I can only imagine the screeching on social media if that had happened during the "believe all women" era.  

Like many others, I watched the first three seasons and after that they'd pretty much covered every angle they could think of.  And if it wasn't for Puck, the third season would have been so vomit-inducing with the beatification of Pedro that I wouldn't have lasted more than a couple episodes.

The first season of "The Real World" was groundbreaking because little to nothing like it had ever aired before. This was a huge key to its success because the roommates didn't go in with preconceived notions about how they should behave while the producers and directors didn't as blatantly attempt to engineer storylines as would later be the case.

The second season in Los Angeles was pretty good too. However, some of the problems that would later undermine the show started to seep in. One of the roommates, Beth S, turned out to not be who she claimed to be. She put herself over as midwestern college grad from Ohio and publicity from just before the season premiere, at which time the show was still shooting, described her as such. There was no internet as we know it in 1993 and background checking people was harder. If you go back and watch this season, you'll notice that references to her background disappear at a certain point. One of the behind the scenes people noticed some inconsistencies about her backstory when she discussed it and also that she was playing to the cameras in a way that went beyond what they'd consider normal in such circumstances. Beth S was taken aside, asked what was going on, and copped to being an actress who essentially came up with the midwestern gal gimmick because it improved her chances of being selected for the show. They didn't remove her from the show and instead had her stop working the gimmick while not actually stating that she wasn't what she claimed to be.

The San Francisco season was by far the most noteworthy season. Puck was the first real villain on the show. Roommates had acted annoying and self centered, but he was the first guy who seemed to be openly hostile towards the others when it came to his selfish behavior. It definitely influenced the producers when it came to them deliberately looking for shit stirrers in his wake. The other roommates have said that the editing made Puck look not nearly as bad as he actually was and that there was an effort to show him in a more positive light to viewers than they experienced while living with him because he had some potential for other MTV projects that required him to be somewhat likeable. I'd buy that Pedro Zamora was put over too strongly and that if not at that time then later, had he lived, he'd have admitted to that. Him living with AIDS but looking relatively alright while they were taping from February to June of 1994 only to die the night after the season finale aired in November was pretty heavy for the time and got the show a ton of publicity.

The eventful San Francisco season and the dreadfully dull London season that followed killed the show to a great extent. The San Francisco season was a hard act to follow, but MTV and the producers seemed to cast the London season in an attempt to deliberately create more fireworks. Instead, the roommates largely got along and when faced with personality conflicts and disagreements seemed to legitimately try to work things out in a mature manner. Meanwhile they couldn't get work visas for the American roommates who had to largely sit around doing nothing which wasn't good for storyline purposes. In the aftermath, big changes were made for the Miami season which stuck with the show long term. Notably, the roommates from then on all had jobs at the same workplace in an effort to generate more storyline and more conflict. However, the lack of the roommates chasing different pursuits robbed the show of some uniqueness because it made everyone too much the same. This also took an already contrived show and made it unbearably more so. The other issue is the effort by the producers to select much more obviously vapid personalities as well as more easily irritated people, not to mention people after TV careers who played to the cameras, became more deliberate and pronounced. The show went on for a long time afterwards, but was never as good.

The London season of Real World (1995) was fucking brutal. Everything after that (Miami, Seattle? Boston?) was totally forgettable.
