The First "Reality Show"
24 July 2002 | by SchlockmeisterSee all my reviews

Years before the present deluge of "Reality Shows", Allan Funt was presenting Candid Camera, in which normal people were presented with unusual circumstances and practical jokes and their reactions were filmed for television ( and a few feature films ).

The older material is truly funny as we watch and realize that they are reacting to behaviour and rudeness that we are quite used to seeing in our "modern" life.

Recommended as an example of what Reality Shows truly could be, funny and entertaining.
