Well, is it?
But it's not wrong.
And it wouldn't be patronising to express that. I'm sure some people know what they're getting themselves into, but I bet many don't.
it really doesn't matter.
Sean should really pay us some sort of stipend for such quality.
let's leave him be
It's an acknowledgement that the show relies on a power dynamic which is massively weighted in favour of the host. He's a public school and university educated man who is pitted against people- often whose own education was either curtailed or nonexistent- with alcohol and drug problems, mental illnesses and other psychological scars, in an environment which is hugely familiar to him whilst being completely new for the guests.
Basically, if you're naive enough to think that appearing on the Jeremy Kyle Show can solve your problems, then you're too naive to appear on the show in the first place.
a cynical microcosm of how society works
while coerced into being entertainment I think it does them little credit to say that they don't know this. I think they very much do. I think they're willing participants in the power-dynamic, and I think we shouldn't seek to 'liberate' them as it's their choice
I'm trying to blend in slowly without a fuss.
responsibility for there actions at some level? You can't make the blanket statement that they all have no idea what they're doing due to substance abuse or mental health issues. And anyway, surely the vast majority of people who are on it must have seen a few episodes at some point.
As far as I can tell it's not the vulnerable people who go on that get it in the neck from Jezza - it's the woman beaters, those who steal and lie from friends and family, who often come on with the swagger of someone who's been allowed to deceive and manipulate for too long and are perfect candidates for a good public dressing down
The attitude of treating these people with kid gloves is a big part of why anti-social behaviour is so rampant in some sections of society.
Furthermore, it's not like he's not been in the business of helping people for a long time - what makes his detractors think their methods are better or that his don't work?
just shouts and them, provokes them, throws shit at them and gets his bouncers to protect him if they react.
then if they actually need some help he gets graham to do it all.
takes a bunch of errant kids and their mums into the Derbyshire wilderness for a long weekend. He's great when his reasonable counsellor persona gives way to a tired ratty bloke who wants to slap the fuck out of a back-chatty teenager.
To have it out with someone who isn't afraid of them, even if it is a kind of synthetic bravado backed up with a legion of bouncers. He makes out like he's involved heavily with the aftercare, too.
My flatmate phoned them up, gave them my number and told me that I'd stolen his TV and to play along because of shabs + bants.
TO cut a long story short they kept phoning me back even though my acting was weak and the story barely hung together. When I said I wasn't up for going on tv they said they would pay my train fares and hotel and give me an extra £200 for my trouble plus the chance to set the record straight in front of the nation obviously.
The guy on the phone was nice but we found out he'd been playing me off against my flatmate, telling him he thought I was lying and vice versa.
Eventually I broke character and apologised for taking up so much of the guys time (kept phoning me and phoning me over the course of a whole day)
Moral: yes they are exploitative. No it is not patronising.
Kyle's actually the Antichrist
ROSCOE and MARLON get to BARRY PRIMSALLs house
ROSCOE: We got here too late
MARLON: Shouldna had that pineapple dammit
ROSCOE: Never regret fruit Marlon it's good for you is fruit. Eat healthy children of DiS and yu'll end up fit and strong like your favourite forum buddies Roscoe and Marlon
MARLON: And it might make you good and regular
ROSCOE: yes but anyway WE GOT HERE TO LATE. The contemporary women from TV's Loose Women (i.e. the spectres) have taken Barry Primsall for using in their nefarious deeds. We have to go and save him and I've got a plan how to do it
MARLON: Let's watch the Dog who Saved Christmas first
(they watch the film)
ROSCOE: Now we go through with my plans bear with me. We will have to head outta here tomorrow morning SO LETS LET some time pass and then...
(ROSCOE and MARLON are now at the JEREMY KYLE SHOW)
JEREMY KYLE: Next up we have two useless peasants who are having a bit of a dispute. Welcome on Roscoe and Marlon. Applaud them with all the disdain in the evolutionary waste basket you human mortals call a heart
(ROSCOE and MARLON come on)
MARLON: Roscoe ate a higher percentage of th pineapple than what I ate
ROSCOE: Did I arses you gay
MARLON: Shup bitch I'll lamp you upside your fuckin dick
ROSCOE: Oh yeah well I'll kick yr lung off ya fat pudding
MARLON: WHY NOT CMERE AND SAY THOSE WORDS as my hearing isnt he best
JEREMY KYLE: Now settle down, you useless viral poxes. Let's discuss the real problem here. Why Roscoe do you feel it's your right to have the first bite of a pineappe
ROSCOE: It is my birthright
JEREMY KYLE: Birthright. Culture of entitlement I see! LOOK AT HOW BRITANNIA HATH FELLED people like you saying you have the birthright to choose how to eat a pineapple or whatever you said. Makes me sick you ROTTEN SCUM MORTAL SCUM. You ought to be minced you WALLY
MARLON: (getting up) HEY NOW. We may have our differences but Roscoe is my friend and no-one calls my friend a WALLY you SILLY BILLY. Why I oughta hit you on your body. What right to you have the judge the lives of others, when your career, HELL your existence is based around exerting superiority over people who are maybe vulnerable or who made some of the wrong choices in their lives. How dare you pretend you want to help them when instead you just exploit them and rile them up and encourage a culture of cruelty and of sneering at people who maybe didnt have the opportunitys you have or who made the wrong decisions. SHAME ON YOU COCKWIPE
JEREMY KYLE: (outraged) I am taking my leaving now GRR
DIRECTOR: Stop rolling yo
ROSCOE: Marlon those were some poignant sentiments that you came up with. I'm sorry I sometimes am a bit fascistic when we eat pineapples
JEREMY KYLE: We had him say all that stuff. We want to keep the audience watching so we'remaking them thing I was confronted and that it shook my confidence a bit but then I'll regain it triumphantly when I really let rip on these two heroin addicts I mean I am really gonna go mental on them har har pathetic humans
ROSCOE: Oh. Well you sir are a terrible wally
JEREMY KYLE: Silence you (he walks off, for karmic retribution a Bengal tiger that had been brought along as a seat-filler starts mauling him in the botty) OUCH ME BOTTY
MARLON: Why are we here Roscoe I thought this was your plan
ROSCOE: Well Marlon I thought we should come to the filming of the Jeremy Kyle show and I'm thinking if we stay here then obviously, judging by the TV schedules, we should find ourselfs on Loose Women too
TERROR MAN: (entering from the fire door) That's not how TV works, guys. They film them in different places
MARLON: No its on ITV Terror Man I dont think you fully understand
TERROR MAN: Come with me I've got a plan torescue Barry Primsall come with me. I'll explain hw TV works on the way
