Doomsday Preppers has to be the saddest show on for profit TV since Honey Boo Boo: Really? On the National Geographic Channel?
I don’t get why once reputable cable television channels devoted to education have become the national version of circus freak shows.
These shows are on cable channels so they get an income from subscribers so ratings should not be a factor but it seems greed knows no bounds.
Again, if there is any one questioning why there has to be tax payer funded govt television programming here it is……..
I think what really sets me off about it is the exploitation of children. Right now on Doomsday Preppers they have a teenager (must be 15?) who is obsessed with the end of the world who is building improvised weapons (baseball bat with nails) and firing weapons and setting a fire in an abandoned building as practice for keeping warm while living on the run (and nearly kills himself and his 3 pals). Instead of getting this kid help and teaching him about socialization they are feeding his delusions.
