Tales And Screams From The Broom Cupboard

She screamed so loud that I thought the teacher was torturing her.

This week my Taiwanese Homeroom teacher really made me cringe. I didn’t know what to do. To tell you the truth, in some sick way I hope that she just takes it too far. At that time, the administration will have to intervene and countless kids will be helped.

Cindy And The Usual Suspects

Cindy’s mom is bad. She punishes Cindy!
As she says this, she hits her hand hard, to show how hard her mom hits her.

Cindy, a 5 year old K2 student.

Kid Nation S01E03 (CBS)

The skies in Danshui(淡水鎮), Taipei County.

CBS continues its strange show that I still find a bit ethically wrong. But hey, it’s on TV right now. Greg is acting out and cursing after he had some fun waking everybody up the morning after the party. The younger kids don’t like the cursing. It makes them upset.

Tim’s Story

I’d like to tell you a story about a little boy named Tim. He is 5 years old and is in a preschool which offers English classes in the mornings.

Tim is a cute little boy. He is smart when he pays attention, caring and attentive. He is a bit of a joker as well. He enjoys having fun. Tim isn’t slow or anything like that, he’s just in his own little world. He is a dreamer. He spends most of his time tracing letters or symbols in the air. The foreign teachers think that he will write nicely in a while because of all the practice he gets. He has a very hard time focusing in class. Maybe he has ADD, maybe he’s just a little kid who needs more playtime, who knows?

Kid Nation S01E02 (CBS)

The bridge in Danshui (淡水鎮), Taipei County.

It’s time to see how CBS will exploit kids again in their insane new reality TV show, Kid Nation. The more I watch it, the more I’m convinced that the studio execs thought of Survivor while creating this show. In fact, the kids even have tasks and challenges to win things. Sound familiar?

Kid Nation S01E01 (CBS)

An interesting sea horse going on its merry way in Atoll Reef, Ocean Park, Hong Kong.

This reality TV show sounds like it was made by stupid studio execs. I can already see the dialogue.

-So… We need a new show…
-I dunno, dogs? Kids? Survivor Kids?
-Everybody loves kids, why don’t we have a kid show?
-Good idea, but we want adults to watch it, so let’s make it like Survivor, everybody watches Survivor! We did it with Big Brother and got the best ratings ever this summer!
-We can’t call it Survivor Kids though, since people would freak out, if they are being starved and everything…
-Let’s keep’em in the States and make it like a “social experiment”, with waivers and shit and keep it entertaining.
-Sounds pretty good, I’m sure it will do great! Survivor kicks ass, this show will rock!

I’m sure something similar happened with the CBS studio execs. Kid Nation was supposed to air during the summer, but got put into Jericho’s spot for the fall season.
