Brief Pop Culture Notes

We're sitting on the couch watching the Food Network. Chopped just wrapped up. What comes to mind is how similar every one of these reality/competition shows has become. They all work on the same formula. The music seems canned and common across the whole genre. The edits and cuts seemed canned as well. When it comes to the food "reality" shows, watching is still fun because I end up thinking about techniques and approaches I've never considered. Still, from Chopped to Top Chef, the shows have gotten so formulaic that it doesn't matter which one you watch. They're basically the same.

Feel free to argue another side in the comments.
