Subject: Real World - Tues. 4-30 episode
The Real World Kids were making a transition in this episode. I'm not sure how far they are into the whole experience of living together, but I think maybe halfway. All are closing out their current jobs to be together on a joint work experience.
By my best recollection, Chris, Keri and Kyle are leaving jobs as lifeguards at North Beach in Chicago. They, of course, bemoan the loss of opportunities to show off there muscles and/or beautiful bodies. Leaving a job where they can loaf for hours at a time and get paid for it is, they whine, a real bummer. How will they ever get cast for "The New Baywatch" unless they get more screen time in their suits, oh that's right, they can lounge in the hot tub back at the Real World House. It has cameras!
Tonya, Aleesha, Theo and Cara are closing a stint at an inner city Rec Center. They have all the kids giving a show for their parents. Theo works on being an example for one of the young boys by encouraging him to participate in the program and then glancing at some chick's butt as she walks past. Seriously, he gives a pretty good talk to the kid about what a waste and a pain it is to go to jail.
The audience at the program looks like it has more production people in it than parents. Oh well, maybe one of the kids will get discovered by MTV - not!
Chris, the alcoholic, has been working as a bartender as well, which we presume he will stop doing. To celebrate the Rec Center program and the change in their work status they all decide to go out drinking. Chris pleads for fun that doesn't include drink, but the others consider this a downer and an odd request since he is willing to work around alcohol, but doesn't want to play where it is being consumed.
Chris leaves the getting wasted event and heads to an AA meeting in order to get his head back where it belongs. Kyle, who is probably a closet alcoholic, goes along to the AA meeting because he says he wants to understand Chris's problem. Chris is stunned because no one ever wanted to go with him to AA before. He warns Kyle it is just a bunch of people telling their drinking stories. Kyle thinks - tell drinking stories, eh, that's what my frat buds and I do all the time, this should be a blast.
Ah - the new job for all - write and put together a performance play for the Halloween celebration at a local park. Theo immediately launches a religious diatribe on the evils of Halloween, it is the devil's holiday!
Cara or Tonya (I can't tell all these blonds apart, everyone knows all blonds look alike), tells the group her fantastic idea for the Halloween play. Theo immediately shoots it down as having racist overtones that he can't tolerate because it has a white woman getting hanged in it, which like any hanging would, conjurs up the image of lynchings in the South. As if people of all colors haven't been hanged all over the world over hundreds of years of human history and this alone should be a basis for finding it offensive.
Now having some poor lady get killed in the play doesn't bother Theo a bit, it's just the method of killing her that is the problem. So maybe they'll resolve it by having her burned at the stake, beheaded or cut up with a chainsaw; but for the delightful answer to that dilemna we must wait until the next episode.
