‘Fly Girls’: Reality TV at 37,000 Feet

Yup, a slice of Airworld is coming to prime time. The CW has picked up eight episodes of the new reality show, which follows five Virgin America flight attendants from the air to their Los Angeles “crash pad” and beyond. The Los Angeles Times describes “Fly Girls” as having “a ‘Gossip Girl’-meets- ‘The Hills’-vibe”—which, I’ll admit, doesn’t have me rushing to write the air dates in my calendar. The same story offers some interesting points about the intersection of infomercial and entertainment on the show.

Interesting!  Is there that much drama in the air?  I hope not!

And I thought I was cool for sending a “video tweet” from 37,000 feet.

I do like Virgin Atlantic’s 25th Anniversary flash back to the 80’s video ...

I am really excited about the series. It’s really interesting to see the girls in the air but it can be more interesting if there could be cat fight in the air. LOL

I believe the word ‘reality’ is getting stretched to its limits… seriously- if people are so starved for real life they should go out and live it themselves!
