Considering some of the reality series that have been out there... which would be worthy of a TV box set? While some may not be as popular later because we know the winner, some of the series bears rewatching. Thus, the poll...

I actually liked The Mole and Boot Camp. But I wouldn't buy a reality show on DVD. If I could pick one though it would actually be Murder in Small Town X

I don't know how much replay value a reality show has. You don't see any reruns of those shows. Anyways, if I have to pick one to be on DVD, I think I want The Mole. It's probably the most intelligent of all the reality shows out there.

Amazing Race or the Mole for me... but they'd have to be relatively inexpensive to consider.

Family Business

I don't see any value in owning reality game shows on DVD.

I think TAR is the only one even slighty rewatchable.

I forgot Murder In Small Town X.

I picked The Amazing Race because it was a competition that took you places around the world and The Mole because it was a thinking person's show.

I think the question was geared more to reality gaming shows. With contests and whatnot.

I could see Family Business being on DVD

I think the Mole is the only one I could enjoy watching over again on DVD, it is by far the smartest show.

Mole DVD Set... now!!

I'll also have to say Murder in Small Town X. Besides a reality show at least it had a plot and real mystery. Plus for those that don't know:

Spoiler:
The very deserving winner (firefighter) for this show gave his life during 911

I don't know the name of it, but I would rent that PBS show where a group of people lived like pioneers. I think there wasn't a bunch of nastiness to that one, so I would probably like watching more than the odd episode here and there . The idea of voting people off like they do on many of those shows is a real turnoff to me. I've watched one called Elimidate a few times, and it's kind of sickening how mean people are to each other--all to win a date with someone who rarely seems to me to be a prize.

Voted for Amazing Race.

Mole/Mole #2 would be second. (especially #2 since I saw the first three episodes when they aired orginially, then taped the rest when they came back, let a friend borrow the tapes before I was able to watch them and he messed them up!)

Murder In Small Town X would be another since I regret not getting into it.

Man, one season of Big Brother would be a alot of DVD's!

LB...
