It's "The Real World" in a Winnebago!
16 December 1999 | by SkyrcketSee all my reviews

This one had to be a no-brainer for MTV. People loved the voyeurism of "The Real World" so why not cram a bunch of twentysomethings into a Winnebago, send them out on the road and see what happens?As each season goes by we get to watch our "Road Rulers" drive across America, Europe, Australia, Canada, Central America or whatever, seeing the sites and taking part in weird activities set up by MTV. When the trip is over there's a lot of crying and everyone gets some really fabulous gifts.

Now if you've ever been on a long car trip you know that nothing will make your emotions run higher than being forced to spend many hours in a cramped space with someone. That's the appeal of the show. We get to watch these people scream and curse at each other one minute, and then blatantly flirt with each other the next. It's crude, but it's human drama at its most real. It's the sort of thing MTV will put on for eight hours at a time when they could be playing videos.

This isn't the best show ever, but if you want real human emotion and drama this is for you.
