holy crap I feel bad for Nehemiah.

I sort of hate the fratty boys for falling under Melinda's shitty sexual power. I hate Melinda for acting shitty and sexual like that. I mean, come on? What was that outfit with the black boots and underpants. You are so desperate for attention? And then for Johanna to try to one-up Mel by saying "take your liquor and come watch me get dressed"? It's sick-making.

Thank merciful heavens that she's chosen to go by "Melinda" and not "Mindy."

i thought i might pass out over the whole eye thing. it was too much, too much i say. and on day two no less. this looks like it might be an interesting season. however, wes and danny's reactions to melinda's needy behavior along with shot after shot of their mouths hanging open will get old fast.

Oh, no kidding. Close your mouth, son, you're attracting flies. Like hello, she's wearing short-shorts, we GET IT. Have you never seen a girl before?

And her whole "promise ring" thing is just so very sad. For her boyfriend.

And not that the RW cast is ever that mature, but this group seems even less mature than in the past. Maybe it's Wes and his "gee wiz, it's a real live girl" mentality, but it seems like we are dealing with high schoolers this go around.

We now have a whole generation that was raised on The Real World. They don't even need to be "cast", because they seem to have grown up learning how to get the most screen time. The only thing more immature than a house of Real Worlders? The kids on Sixth Street trying to beat them up just to get on camera.

When they showed the slow motion close up of the guy who attacked Danny, it looked like he was stomping his foot on Danny's head. It was disgusting. I know the RW production crew are not supposed to get involved in the "story line" but when they witness a criminal act, aren't they obligated as citizens to at least help capture the criminal?

That's the part that really confused me. Someone is committing a violent assault, on camera, that could have potentially killed him, yet no arrests are made? I don't understand what actually happened that night.

freakgirl at June 22, 2005 03:25 PM

loved the kick-off episode. it's always a relief when you don't hate the cast from the outset. one thing bugged though, and i couldn't get past it. how creepy is it that the casting is so damn formulaic? wes = abrham, danny = brad/ct, lacey = sarah. i know it has always been cast for type and that was predictable enough. now they seem to be casting for physical attributes as well. kooky, kooky stuff and i won't miss an episode. until they bore me, of course.

I didn't watch, but was the attacker's face on camera? They had anyone involved on-camera sign a release. Even the servers at the Hickory Street Bar and Grill had to sign release forms.

I have no desire to watch this season. First off, because I live in Austin, and secondly, I just don't care. I haven't really enjoyed the Real World since the San Francisco season, and stopped watching completely after Hawaii.

I called Lacey as the Mel/Frankie.

Kandis at June 23, 2005 09:53 AM

She's definitely being painted as The Outcast, but as of the first episode she hasn't shown much of the crazy. Maybe she'll end up being The Invisible One.

Does anyone remember Simon from Real World Paris? No? Exactly.

Where's the stereotypical (or unstereotypical in the way of Keramo) gay guy?? I searched all episode and then assumed that the casting directors decided we had learned enough about male homosexuality by way of their type-casting and picked a couple of girls who will kiss because they are "bi-curious." Cause God knows, female homo/bisexuality is way hotter for television! Exactly why I wanted to throw up on the frat boys who were cast this season... They only encourage the frat boy viewers.
