Fade Street - The Irish Hills
 
# 1 : Sunday 29-8-2010 @ 17:51
 
 
Queue vacant stares, too much make up, and overuse of the words 'Oh my God' and 'Loike'.

The latest scripted reality show is about to hit our screens.

Just as The Hills has come to an end, RTE has decided to film their own version of the MTV show. Set in and around Dublin 2, it follows six 'glamorous' twenty-somethings as they struggle to get through the hardship of a life filled with shopping in Brown Thomas and drinking in Cafe en Seine.

Imagine a real life Ross O Carroll Kelly book only without the comedy.

This autumn on RTE!

Oh no....I hoped you might have been having a joke. This will be absolutely dire - a testament to frivolity, moneyed mediocrity, and living in squander. I wonder if, like The Hills , this show will appear scripted - then again, such are the depths of artificiality on that show that really its hard to decide whether they are merely acting (poorly),or are simply genuinely out of touch with reality.

Oh no, this will be a comedy. It just won't be intentional!

The mere thought of that makes me want to slam my head into a wall!

I can get a watered down version of this by just going to school. I don't need it on my telly!

sounds like RTE are totally out of touch, half the country a heart beat from poverty so we'll all sit down and see the challenges the rich have. They didn't think this thru......

In its defence, there is a generation out there who couldn't give a damn about the recession. They're still at school or in college and to them this MTV style show will be addictive. Of course its out of touch with reality and so wrong in the current climate, but when you look at the viewing figures for shows like The Hills, The City and other MTV style shows, you can't help RTE wanting a slice of that pie.

While Fade Street may seem out if touch to us oul things, there is a massive audience there for it and if it's not RTE who is showing it it'll be someone else.

I can't honestly see this working on people still in school. To be honest, the majority of us hate orange, dube wearing, messy haired girls who buy things with doddy's credit cord. There are a few (or a few who want to be) of them in pretty much every school and they are tortuous.
Yes I know I'm generalising massivly. But that's probably who will be featured on this show.

Whats the point of comparing it to 'The Hills' if her love life is off limits?

And her name is Vogue? Like, Vogue? Really?


SHE'S set to become the Lauren Conrad of Irish television when RTE's new reality show Fade Street hits the small screen next month -- but model Vogue Wilson is adamant her love life is one area the cameras won't have access to.
The blonde beauty (24) told the Diary how the producers of the show, based on MTV's The Hills, have agreed to keep her boyfriend out of the picture, given that his work as a graffiti artist requires him to remain anonymous.

The series will follow the gorgeous catwalk queen as she takes on various modelling assignments through her agency Assets, as well as profiling her stint as an intern at Stellar magazine and documenting her work as an up and coming DJ.
The Howth-born model said: "I'm nervous about how it will come across when they've edited it. I would care if people thought I came across badly."

I agree, but wasn't Dallas and its millionnaire mansions really popular during the cash-strapped 80s!

Really?! And you signed-up for this kind of thing voluntarily?! Good Luck, everyone will hate you.

I do declare! It's been about fifteen seconds since I got annoyed about something. When is this trash set to start? Or have they abandoned the project because the protagonists are now more likely to be found queuing up at the Bishopsgate Welfare Office than Krystle Nightclub?

Indeed. More to the point, considering the amount of shallow, vacuous American, Australian and British drivel that gets lauded here, why shouldn't we as a nation contribute some homegrown shallow, vacuous Irish drivel?
