Chris and Dave’s Reality TV Cast

Ripping into all things reality

We come to the end of The Big D and what finale. The old contestants come back and act as the jury on the couple who should win the newly announced $50k prize money.

This week also sees the return of one of the best Reality TV shows around - Married At First Sight UK (MAFS). This always delivers an absolute mess of a show and we are here with the popcorn for all the fallout.

Our Patreons also get a bonus episode of ITV’s ‘middle-aged Love Island’ - My Mum, Your Dad. Hosted by Davina McCall is a real heartwarming show that actually seems like love will prevail.

The VHS Strikes Back

The show where we dust off the old video player, and go on a journey to look at the good and bad movies of yesteryear. 

Chris picks a Sci-Fi movie that Dave has never seen. Christian Bale in his audition as The Dark Knight plays a killer assassin in a world run by a controlling ‘Father’ 

A martial arts movie that started the whole Gun-Fu movement - Equilibrium (2002).
