Blog Spotlight: Review: Frontier House - TV Review - PBS Tries The Real World

The recent rash of reality television I’ve forced myself to watch inspired in me a great longing for more of the PBS efforts into reality. You’re probably familiar with at least a few of the “House” shows. While I liked 1900 House and 1940 House, and some of the more recent trips into the past were pretty good, none of them really lived up to the theoretical potential like Frontier House. For whatever reason, things just came together perfectly, and the show still stands out as one of the best things television has ever managed. The show can fairly legitimately be said to deliver some real impact to viewers, but more importantly it changed the lives of the participants. Perhaps no one could be said to have been more changed than Mark Glenn (who called me as a result of the following review, but the message was eaten by my answering system!), and his story is worth the price of admission alone.
