    Does anyone watch this? I only saw one episode because it was the only thing my coat hanger and scrap copper wire antenna would tune in at the time.

    There was a photo shoot in the episode, and maybe I just don't have an eye for fashion photography, but I hated some of the photos that they picked as the "best shots." The models were often posing in very odd and uncomfortable looking position and bending joint in ways that look just plain unappealing and unnatural.

    Now granted, I dont often read fashion magazines, unless the Sears add from the Sunday paper counts. lol. But, Is it just me or does anybody feel the same way?

    What do you think?

    I watch the show cause I'm amazed that they turn those (to me) ordinary looking girls into something beautiful on film - granted photoshop does help a lot.

    But yeah I agree with you... sometimes they show the photos and I'm expecting them to give a horrible review and then all the judges think its 'brilliant' ... Must be a high fashion type thing... but if I saw it in a magazine I'd really wonder why they look like their leg is broken.

    That show sucks....sorry ;)

    Watch "The Shot" on VH1 Sundays 10pm (us-westcoast time)
    --> This competition is about "who becomes the next fashion photographer"...

    Some cool contests, nice equipment and hot models :)
     
  4. It's TV, people... it's scripted, the have writers (who are currently striking). They're going to take the shot that they think will engage the viewership the most... and those people just got back from the Wal-Mart snack counter.

    Actually, the writer's strike doesn't affect reality shows like Top Model or The Shot. That's why we are going to see so many of them in the next few months or however long it takes them to end the strike.

    That being said, I think it's a little unfair to generalize about people that watch these shows. A couple of my fave shows are reality shows and I've never eaten at the Wal-mart snack counter. :p

    Even if it is scripted, the show was probably filmed months ago, so the strike now probably isn't hurting them too much.

    I think all the reality shows are a toy version of what actually goes down during a shoot or what ever. As artists we should think about boycotting this poop.

    Good looking girls are to America's next top model, as good singers are to American Idol.

    Has anyone seen the previous winners either in the popular charts or on the cover of magazines? The shows titles really are oxymoronic!

    Yeah pop charts are not a good example since they are largely determined by marketing. Let's just say who here has a CD in their record collection ;)
