TLC’s ‘Half Ton Killer’ Over The Top Reality TV
Has reality television gone too far? I remember when these reality shows started, people were saying it's just a passing fad, they will go away soon. Well, many years later these shows continue. We have shows like 16 and Pregnant, Hoarders and so on. TLC which has all reality television is now promoting a show titled "Half Ton Killer" a show that tells the story of a woman who weighs 1,100 pounds who confessed to killing her nephew.
Turns out that her weight proves that she couldn't have killed him. While this is an interesting story, why should I watch this? I think the story is compelling and some people will tune in to watch for the story but most will watch just to gawk at the woman who is so obese, I do have to admit I keep watching the trailer over and over because I have never seen anyone or anything like this.
