    Re: 9/19 Show Discussion Thread **SPOILERS**

    Well...this show didn't stink (for me). I liked it better than the Pirate show, I think because some of those kids are pretty funny. No doubt they are all precocious..."bad for your colon" . I wonder how much of it is scripted, and whether suggestions are made, ie. graffiti up the signs, next you need to do this, etc. etc., and just how much it is allowed to play out.

    I don't know what union wages would be for these kids for the days they were on the show.....why couldn't they have paid them union wages....then have a reward such as a comfy bed for a week?

    ....or let the kids make a list some good rewards for the "Star of the Week" Maybe each "Star" winner could choose their reward from that list of options, but not TWENTY thousand dollars!.

    It was called Frontier House --- similar in that some families were "wealthier" than other families but I agree, much more intense. All the pbs "House" programs are amazing.

    After sleeping on it, the only major concern I have is CBS "casting" the children into assigned roles: Greg = the bully, Michael = the peacekeeper, Taylor = the brat, etc. I hope it doesn't play out that way and the children's personalities are allowed to develop more.

    Jimmy was not the only 8 year old child there. There is another girl. It will be interesting to see if we have another meltdown. Was he cute? Yes, but he also struck me as the kind of kid who would go to a sleepover and then have to be taken home in the middle of the night due to not having any coping skills. Personally, I think he is probably smotheringly (I'm not even sure if that is a word, but it works for me), over-protected at home.

    I know a kid who was just like Jared. Extremely intelligent with a strange sense of humor.

    I meant without a family member, preferably parent or grandparent. I doubt that a camera crew or medical team would comfort a child quite the same.

    The Gold Star should have a different value every week. Then those that work hard will continue to work and the slackers will slack. And it should eliminate the suck ups.

    I must be the only one that was NOT impressed with this show. It was TOO staged.

    After watching this show, I like Sophia and Laurel. Some of the other kids seem genuine, but I know the producers scripted it this way but I dont really like Greg. I also dont like Michael the peacekeeper for some reason. Maybe that will change

    CBS is going to repeat this show on Saturday night at 8 p.m.

    I only saw parts of it on Thursday night, too many interruptions. I would think by now everyone would know not to call me during my reality fixes!
