I think it's some kind of suspension of belief thing. There isn't really a camera. They really are struggling for survival. And it's... entertaining?

The hunger isn't the point, I found. They whine a bit about being hungry and whatnot, but the point of it is to see how the group reacts and manipulates each other and what they'll do to win. Kind of like Big Brother only way nastier.

The only surviver-esque tv show I actually liked/watched was I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! mainly because of how ridiculous it was. (and Sanjaya/Janice Dickinson were hilarious from what I remember)

Have you guys ever seen that show before?

Omfg. I LOVE that show so much! Although in recent years they've been using less and less interesting celebrities to the point where the people that go into it aren't really celebs at all. But it's still funny seeing how much the public picks on one single person who always freaks out over the trials.

I'm... pretty certain they still show it in England every year. I could be wrong but I seem to remember it still being on annually here.

Ohhhhh, I understand now! After some intense browsing (one or two clicks) on Wikipedia, I discovered there are two I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! shows, one in England and one in America. The one in America was cancelled after the second season, but the one in England is still going strong.

*I feel so well-informed!*

Culture & Media was bought by Walmart. This was the name they chose.

When did Culture and Media become General Entertainment? O_O

I don't feel like they are. Though if there was a free coupon that paid for a copy of Black2 or White2, I'd take it right away.

Sarcasm on the internet, Andy. Sarcasm on the internet.

It was not clear that a subforum on a Pokemon forum was not bought by a major, world-wide super store.

Yeah I dislike General Entertainment as well. Culture & Media sounded more refined.

I can imagine posh British classy people drinkin tea and discussing Culture and Media, but when I hear General Entertainment I think of spastic American children being beaten by their fat redneck parents talking about Nicki Minaj and Snooki.

RIP Culture and media. :'(

I thought they had deleted the section at first. :O
But why the name change/why was it moved up?

So then guys, what's everyone watching/planning to watch this season? Any series you're looking particularly forward to? First episode impressions?

As for me, I'm watching, K, Robotics;Notes, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Magi, Shinsekai yori, Sukitte Ii na yo., Little Busters! and Psycho-Pass.

Out the ones I've watched so far (everything except Robotics;Notes, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun and Psycho-Pass), I can honestly say I've enjoyed every first episode. I think K may have been my favourite, but Magi is a close second. Shinsekai yori looks promising, despite the fact I'm not a huge fan of the plot. I liked Little Busters! and Sukitte Ii na yo. - it's been a while since I've read the Sukitte manga so I can't really remember if there were any major differences between the anime and manga, but regardless, I still liked it. As for Little Busters!, I'm afraid to say I've never played the visual novel (I'll probably get around to it oneday though) so I have no idea if the anime has greatly differed from the novel.

General Entertainment is a more accurate name, really.

It's a better name probably - although perhaps even more, well, general than before which makes where stuff goes all that much more confusing. But regardless it'll just take a bit of getting used to.

you know
sometimes droomph
just sometimes
i really don't understand you

I just liked typing out C&M, I suppose. To me, it will always have a nicer ring to than GE (the complete opposite of what Jon said to me). GE always makes me think of genetic engineering and that's not what I come to PC for!!!!

I have no preference which of the two names is used, but I'm new here and haven't seen this forum under any other name. I guess I'm already used to it? xD

Also I won't let any place sell out to Wal-Mart. Typical mega-corporation trying to control the world while not even understanding how it works...

That's the spirit!

But seriously, I've always been of the opinion that C&M isn't exactly the most... accurate name for this place. "Culture" is a ridiculously nebulous term, and "Media" discussions often go in Other Chat & Discussions. This place has always been about entertainment, and when I completely vetoed calling it 'Other Entertainment' (because, bleh!), General Entertainment became the most natural option. Like when Facebook or Twitter changes their interface, everyone always comes around in the end. Hopefully this'll be the same for you guys! :D

Facebook interface changes... yuck. I still hate Timeline since it makes things so much LESS organized and they refuse to make it standard to sort posts chronologically, instead of dwelling upon "importance" or, now, whomever PAID to "promote" posts to the top of a News Feed. Facebook is only killing itself by wanting to be a money-making machine as opposed to a site for its users. They need to do the latter because that's way more long-term.

I don't have a Twitter. Should I?

Hm, I don't know about Twitter, that's all up to you. I kind of just see Twitter as a silly website where people post EVERYTHING they're doing, but perhaps that's just some people? Could be fun...

RANDOM TOPIC CHANGE THE WALKING DEAD SEASON THREE IS PREMIERING OCTOBER 14TH IS ANYBODY ELSE EXCITED TOO!?!
