SAINT HOODS

 

Have people watched Saint Hoods on Discovery Channel? It’s supposed to be an “unscripted” reality show on three rival gangs in South Boston, Roslindale and Dorchester. I watched one episode and was totally lost. Essentially these guys are running around taking bets and shaking people down for money and shit. They are getting interviewed on camera talking about all the crimes they commit. Umm isn’t bookmaking illegal? Isn’t knocking on somebody’s door and telling them you’re going to break their legs if they don’t pay illegal? Seriously how about the balls on the Discovery Channel? Trying to pretend this is real. Hey bro if this was real these guys would be in jail. Like I don’t know much about the law but I know this much. You can’t commit a crime and brag about it on National TV. That’s going to get you caught 1 billion percent of the time. Just strange. And you know what the craziest part is? This still may be better than the Vineyard, Southie Rules, Wicked Single and every other atrocious show that has come out of Boston recently. In fact I’m beginning to think TV execs may be the dumbest group of people on the planet. I just don’t know how anybody can produce anything that bad. Mind boggling really.
