The Real World? Real Bore.

As the Brooklyn season comes to a close, I can't help but admit the cold, boring truth staring me in the face every Wednesday night at the 10 spot; this season sucked. Sure, we got an extra roommate (and sadly, it wasn't because they counted Katelyn twice); but the even number just created an even split between the roommates. And not in a good, fun, drama conflicty kind of way. The happy quartet of boring girls played cards all day while the equally boring quartet of boys played pranks. Oh right, the pranks! Even the pranks couldn't save this season. Any other season would have included the pranks on their "Real World You Never Saw" DVD as a fun extra. Not as the meat and potatoes of the show.

Let's talk about some highlights:

- Ryan singing songs with Chet going all googily eyed in the boat
- JD telling Devon that she was a terrible singer then making her have sing off against Tranny
- Scott giving Katelyn $1500 so she could stay to gamble and shop at Hot Topic.
-Chet's insanely awkward date with Scott's friend/Chet's insanely awkward audition at MTV/Chet's insanely awkward everything.
- Ryan finding out he was going to the army? Was that a highlight?

That's it.

I didn't see anyone throw up from drinking too much. None of the roommates hooked up. The hot-tub was utterly useless. No pregnancy scares. No phone calls to their signifcant others to warn them that they've been naughty. NO VACATION. This season was so bad that the producers didnt' even spend the money to send them on vacation. Remember those trips? Greece, India, Australia, Africa. But no, no. Real World Brooklyn went to Gettysburg and Atlantic City. And their party bus was an insult to Real World fans everywhere. All I could think about was how Denver Jenn and Colie would have rocked that bus. But instead, everyone lounged, watched scenic New Jersey pass them by.

I like these characters, I do. What's not to like about Ryan and Scott? But I think we all know the highlights of last night's episode were the Hills trailer (Audrina and Brody?!) and seeing that Ruthie is going to participate in the Duel II (intervention anyone).

Cheers to the finale.
