Yeah, I still hate reality tv, including these damn competition shows, but what you might not realize is that practical effects is the field that I always wanted to get into from as far back as I can remember. I've always loved movie monsters, special effects, and the idea of someday making my own was a very real goal of mine until the harsh reality of real life bitch slapped me down out of the clouds after school.
Tonight on SyFy though, a group of people with way more ambition than myself will compete against each other doing exactly what I wish I was doing for a living for a chance to get to do it for a living. Lucky bastards. But you can bet your ass I'll be watching, and you probably should too.
