I saw a preview for this and during the finale of Ink Master the other night and it made me think of The Truman Show. It's basically a reality show to see who will be a bounty hunter, but everyone is an actor that portrays a stereotype from most reality shows...except one guy isn't an actor and thinks it's all real. I guess it had two previous seasons and it's how Kristin Wiig got her start before SNL.

I actually picked up Season 2 on DVD for $1 at a used book store, but never got around to checking it out...

Is it necessary to watch Season 1 before Season 2 or does it matter?

maybe they waited ten years so that people would forget about the show and fall for the prank more easily

If I remember correctly, that was one of the first shows SPIKE ever aired. Back in the days of MXC.

Haha, I remember this show. I think it was the only "reality" show I ever watched, besides a couple Road Rules challenges here and there. I had no idea Kristen Wiig was on it though, that's crazy.

Seems like they're adding too many ridiculous elements and characters thou. I'd prefer if it were a bit more subtle in its execution.

No. They're completely separate. I have season one on DVD and its one of the most brilliant things on TV. I didn't watch season 2, but I remember hearing it failed cause the two(or one of the two) real people figured it out.

I think it's been long enough since the first two aired that it could work, because it seems like hardly anyone remembers it. I think the reason it failed the second time was because it was filmed so close to when the first one aired.

Did anyone see the 2 hour premiere? It was very entertaining, imo.
