One of the very few things I claim as a guilty pleasure is reality TV. Of course, reality TV is never real but it’s pretty fun just to see the shit show for the camera. My all time favorite is Bar Rescue. Master businessman and bar expert Jon Taffer travels the US, saving bars from neglect and failure with a slew of experts. What can I say, I love watching crappy bar owners getting ripped apart by Taffer and seeing how bad is truly bad before the rescue. You will see some gross things in this show, and frankly, it did make me think twice before entering a bar. The show is great for learning new recipes not only for drinks but food as well which is unexpectedly cool. I have to say, in a world of bullshit reality tv, I find myself fascinated where reality and fiction divides; I believe Taffer is a good dude, I believe most of the gross shit in these bars is real, and I absolutely don’t believe all the back door you see is real because- hey there is some damn good camerawork for these private moments. In the end, like most shows of this kind, it’s repetitive but oh so satisfying and I recommend checking it out.
