Blue pill moment

A review of "Animal Planet Presents"

I realized after only 2 minutes that the episode “Cannibal in the Jungle” was fake. I haven't watched the rest of the series, but apparently that's fake, too. I suppose this is the next step of downward TV evolution: presenting entirely fake documentaries as if they were the real thing (except in the fine print). Why does this happen now, as the “real world” turn out to be very different from how we all imagined it to look like? A co-incidence? Or is somebody trying to deliberately deceive us and blunt our critical faculties? Perhaps mockumentaries like “Cannibal in the Jungle” is a *blue* pill moment…
