    So I'm watching this show called Operation Repo, and I'm like YOU CAN'T DO THAT every minute (I'm a Criminal Justice student).
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Repo
    Then I look up this show, and it's all fictional! What kind of bullshit is this? The whole time I thought it was REAL, which is what the channel promises. EVERYTHING shown is supposed to be real or based on real events.

    Now I'm wondering if ANYTHING I've seen on this channel is real.

    On TV the word reality = fiction.

    NO ACCEPTIONS.

    PS: If you ever watch the show with the cop chases every time a car turns/crashes they add in sounds. Try it easy to spot.

    When something is "based on" a true story, that doesn't mean the story IS true. Lots of embellishments were added to make the show more interesting.

    Personally, I always thought "true story" was kind of an oxymoron. Is it true, or is it a story? Even the News on TV isn't really telling you the truth much anymore.
