Ah, “K-Town.” I don’t know if it’s any better or worse than things like “Jersey Shore” or “Real Housewives of Whatever City,” but for some reason, none of the cable networks were at all interested in running “K-Town” in their lineups. So they’ve turned to the web and here are the first two episodes:

It looks like they cut the pilot into ten minute segments which is probably the best way to watch something like this.

I don’t know, man. I think it’s too early to really make a proper judgement. I’m kind of curious to know why no one wanted to run this. I’ve never watched any of these kinds of reality shows, but I feels like it fits right in there with the genre.

So what do you think? Does this belong on cable? Or should we just ignore it?

    Because they’re more comfortable with trashy white people, than trashy East Asian people?

    I guess? I wish I knew. It seems just like the other kinds of reality crap that’s on these days. Maybe it seems too scripted?

    I only was able to watch like 5 maybe 10 minutes of this before I decided this is a absolute failure.. I admite Im a mouth breathing idot, don’t really get into drinking, and am white so I might not be in the target audiance of this show.. but If you ask me.. And I think it boils down to a few simple things..

    First off, The race questions this is really off putting. I want to be a progressive person… and I think it could make it harder for me think of anyone being just like me in my wants and values. But this is a stupid show about xenophobic people who drink together just because they are all of the same race.. Am I off my rocker to ask, Would a white or black person being able to get into there clubs? I have to wonder if this is how a jim crow law felt to a black person in the 1940s just because of the whole race issue.. It honestly makes the world feel closed off to me that the only way I can see this corner of the world is to either be Asian, or have to watch it through a camera..

    The other problem is who wants to spend all there money drinking at a bar like your from Jersey shore? Times are tough, and while I like to forget my own problems, advocating causing worse problems though heavy alcohal abuse is really not my thing.

    Final problem , that this is not funny enough when that is basically what it needs to be most. Chris Rock can say the worst possible things about black people, because he is funny. (and of course because he is black.) But because he is funny anyone can laugh at him and its ok for anyone to go see his shows and laugh at these storys that relate black culture to all culture.. This does not seem like a really informational show… nor is a heart warming show… and as far a action and drama goes.. I’m severely annoyed by the fact its mostly alcohol, and hormone driven.

    SO.. Since I got that your too white to be here, not ingrained into getting drunk enough ever to have the stupid fun feeling this show seems to be enbroiling… really have to be insainly funny to hold me.. which it is not..
    I only was able to watch like 5 maybe 10 minutes of this before I decided this is a absolute failure..
    For me what could of been a invitation to a different American subculture boiled out into a big put-off.. It all boiled down to this show being about what seems to a group of unintentionally xenophobic people who drink together just because they are all of the same race.. The only seem to go to clubs that cater to like minded people… and drink till they profit..

    Am I off my rocker to ask, Would a white or black person being able to get into there clubs? I have to wonder if this is how a jim-crow law felt to a black person in the 1940s just because of the whole race issue.. It honestly makes the world feel closed off to me that the only way I can see this corner of the world is to either be Asian, or have to watch it through a camera..
    If I wanted to see places I could never see because im a white American, I watch National Geographic.. Any place that technically I should be able to go.. I expect to be judged on how clean my shirt is, how respectful I will be to the staff and the people around me, and how well I will tip the strippers.
    Sooo Yea.. thats my problem with it.. Is it ok to be white in there world?

    I concur. Although they’d give some reason along the lines of it not being “marketable enough” to “mainstream” America.
