Bachelor in Paradise Season 6 is in full swing, and as the cast changes we get to see the corkiness of human relationships and behavior.
Every Monday and Tuesday my mom and I sit down with a drink and snacks to Science Theater 3000 the crap out of the show.
As we watch, heckling is involved, crying is involved, shouting at the t.v. is always involved, grabbing of hair and pulling happens during every episode.

That guy's a dick!
Why is she being so stupid?
We darn near throw our popcorn at the screen. But we don't because that's just a mess to clean up─and it's too much corn for the dogs.
But we involve ourselves with these peoples lives and often times want the best for them. Of course, as outsiders, we "know best" who should be with who.
As writers, we see the drama unfold and think this is so good─how could we write this?
I often think we writers couldn't get away with what reality t.v. can edit. But it's an interesting look at relationships and as close to becoming flies on the wall as we can. At the very least its fodder for our own stories. Which is why I watch it. That and because these brave souls have given up their privacy for an audience to observe a part of their lives and for that, I'm invested.
We want them to find love, but it would be the same without the dramatics.
So join me and my mom if you want to discuss Bachelor in Paradise!
