Straight from the confines of my mind

I'm reading the new issue of TV Guide last night (yes, I read TV Guide. Shut it), and there is a feature on Without a Trace, a show which apparently features stories "ripped from the headlines."

When did that become a good thing? If I wanted to watch the f-ing news, I would. I was kind of hoping that an "original series" would actually feature something original. You know, as in fictional. As in, make it up your damn selves, you lazy hacks.

All these shows ripping things from the headlines just further blurs the distinction between what is real and what is reality TV.
