Really. I never thought I’d say it. Aside from the jokey, parody shows (Celebrity House and Joe Schmoe), I’ve generally loathed reality TV.
But Penny Arcade sucked me in:
Seeing actual artists doing art is awesome. Watching a competition between people who behave and react like people without the obvious overly-dramatic editing and music is compelling as shit. As a reality show, it’s proof that this can be interesting and entertaining without being forced. Getting a taste of all the behind-the-scenes work that goes into webcomics is icing on the cake. I hope I get to meet some of these people someday.
