Wanna Get Away

Another reality television show needs a biker. J.P. Garzone, who has previously worked as a casting associate with the Fox series Kitchen Nightmares, is now casting a show called Utopia.

Garzone writes: “We are looking for a diverse group of people because America is diverse. We want as many groups and demographics represented as possible. There will be lots of different skill sets there too. One group we feel needs to be represented is the MC community. This group is well known but often misunderstood. We want to have someone that can represent this lifestyle and show audiences that they are people, with families, honor, pride and morals. Whether they have been formerly incarcerated or not, does not matter. We cannot accept anyone on parole or probation, unfortunately.”

“The show we are doing is more social experiment than reality show but it is going to be a huge hit on a major network. Any help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated. This could be a great opportunity for someone to represent the MC community and use it as a soundboard to showcase the truth about the riding community in America, speak on injustice and squash the stereotypes.”

Let’s Read The Press Release

You can decide for yourself if joining this show is better than prison. The press release says:

“Can a perfect world be created? From unscripted mastermind John de Mol, and based on the hit Dutch television series of the same name, Utopia is a bold new unscripted series that moves a group of everyday people to an isolated, undeveloped location – for an entire year – and challenges them to create their own civilization.

“‘Utopia will be the largest, most ambitious social experiment on television, and I’m thrilled that Talpa Media USA has chosen Fox as its U.S. broadcast partner,’ said Simon Andreae, Executive Vice President of Alternative Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. ‘The series offers people from all walks of life the chance to start all over again and re-write the rules of civilization as we know it. It addresses fascinating and fundamental questions about human law, morality and social structures, wrapped in an irresistible and truly forward-thinking television format.’”

“With no existing power structures and limited amenities, these ‘pioneers’ must draw on their own ideals and everything they know about societies around the world, to create a new one…will it be better? Will they rewrite the rules they have always lived by? Will they falter or prosper?

“As the Utopians build the new society, every decision counts. Each must try to become indispensable to the group or risk being exiled to their regular lives and replaced by potential newcomers who have been vying to join.

“With cameras following the Utopians 24/7, viewers can watch their society unfold, both weekly on Fox and also online. As they observe the inhabitants living together, and building their new existence, viewers themselves will have the chance to become a
valuable and powerful asset to the community, and ultimately to question whether Utopia remains an elusive but alluring fantasy, or whether the pioneers have truly realized their dream.”

    No thanks.

    Last thing they need is for me to be locked up with a bunch of idealist liberals who think that hugging trees and being one with nature is the way to go.

  2. RtC Says:

    MORE proof “Hollywierd” has NO imagination! Just this last fall,(or at
    least recent enuff to remember) 1 of the
    networks had 2 bikers that went around the country COOKING, using the local cuisine. I don’t recall(THANKS MORPHINE!!) the network OR the name of the show but one ol’boy was a well known chef, & the skinny guy could EAT! LOL
    Was a couple of Southern Ol’Boys & they rode to each location(supposedly)
    So, this BS is just a type of remake, AGAIN. I’ll do some checkin’ to see if I can find the show I’m writing about. Had some damn good recipes for stuff like Armadillo, possum & FROG LEGS(MMMMMMMMMMMM)
    RESPECTS to the REAL

  3. RtC Says:

    And on the real subject about this type of show… What Dave said…

  4. Bill Says:

    It’s always seemed to me that the ‘reality’ level of any supposedly ‘real’ activity whose participants were knowingly on camera 24/7 was probably about as real as life ever gets for this
    crap’s target audience.

  5. RtC Says:

    Weeeeeellll heeeeelllll! Was called Hairy Bikers on History Ch & had originated in GB! Yeah, innovation & revolution, that’s Hoollywierd!

    Were you thinking about “Feasting on Asphalt?”


    Ride Free

    You know how’s it’s really going to go;

    Someone will think “I’ll do this for the bikers and show people we’re not wretched, evil thugs”.

    Then he’s going to do this and pick daisies and braid the ladies’ hair while telling the guys that violence is not the answer to everything and offering profuse amounts of hugs for all…

    right before the ATF shows up to plant some drugs and guns on the biker, douse themselves with fake blood, and fall down hollering about evil bikers, guns and drugs and draw some sort of connection between the biker, Satan, and the Apocalypse.

    That’s how it would really go.

    These “pioneers” should be politicians and cops. The area they inhabit should be walled in, so as to prevent escape. I give ’em about two weeks before they cannibalize each other.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  10. BMW Says:

    Hell, if I was in decent physical condition, bored, with all my bases covered a year in advance, all my bills paid, the old lady and the kids happy, and absolutely nothing to do for the next year, I might consider it…LOL!

    What kind of “biker” will they get to do this? Obviously one in good shape, everything under control, and nothing to do for a year. He would have to have a steady and regular income without showing up for work. (An Utopian accomplishment that many bikers have been looking for since WWI!) He must belong to a different kind of motorcycle club than I do! We have projects we are working on, runs, kids in school, all that sort of thing. We work for a living. Besides, we go riding together every week! Who can take a year off?

    Once again, the “reality” TV executives are looking for a “biker” for “color” rather than a real biker. They seem to be looking for an “unreal biker” for the non-reality show, Perhaps we should be charitable and forward this request for an unreal biker to the Iron Order…not!

    L,H&R TO ALL 1% RIDERS!!!

    @ Dave, who said: “…and draw some sort of connection between the biker, Satan, and the Apocalypse.”

    Anyone caught in my house watching shit like this gets wacked behind the head with the remote, not to say all the other shit on tv is more intelligent, just maybe just not as dumb as those god damned tv romanticized illusion of a reality shows.

    Fuck em.

  13. RtC Says:

    @Road Whore, Nah, neither of those are it. I googled History Channel Hairy
    Bikers Super Chef & it shows the American version of the GB show.Heavy
    “french trained chef” & skinny other biker guy.lol

  14. Base Says:

    This will be as about as non-scripted as a Broadway play.

  15. coolhandLuke Says:

    @ roadwhore, I saw the link you posted “hairy bikers-asian adventure”….. now thst would be some tv I would watch. Sounds like my last road trip. Didnt click the link though, my imagination is gonna be better than reality on that show.

  16. rookery Says:

    The Dutch show is awful beyond words……..

  17. Oldskewl Says:

    Gentlemen’s bet:

    The biker cry’s at some point during the show revealing his soft nature…
    Any takers?


  18. Cap'n Bill Says:

    @ BMW
    When people ask ‘What do you want?’, I say, ‘More money, less aggravation’. Nothing like what you’re talking about, however.

    A fuckin’ year with a bunch of strangers…? No bike…hmmmm.
    What will the women look or act like…hmmm.
    Not very ‘utopian’ to me…

    this is a preposterous premise. you cannot create a cohesive cooperative “group” by having someone not in the group selecting the inhabitants of the group. even though the person creating the group he’s not in himself is announcing the event with all manner of exciting adjectives and all manner of exciting prophesies. this is called, i think, “hype for a shitty show no one will ever watch.” i think that’s what it’s called around the dinner table. the word “diverse” is really the tipoff that this is an idea going nowhere. diverse in this context, and in most contexts, actually means “people at each others’ throats.” this is Survivor but with more tribal fucking down the road.

    “One group we feel needs to be represented is the MC community. This group is well known but often misunderstood.”

    Yeah, you ain’t helpin’, Hollywood Boy

  21. jj solari Says:

    didnt that dumbass “architect” paulo soleri try this stunt in arizona in some pesthole he called arcosanti where idiot hippes who were unemployable in the real world fashioned bricks out of adobe like fucking apaches and slapped it all together into a nightmare swirl of paths-to-nowhere and circles and twirlies of mud that offended the eye and assaulted the aesthetic sensibilities and the world’s “journalists” and “thinkers” declared all of it as a utopian dream come true? yeah if the dream was generated by peyote and beer maybe. so they want to make a tv show out of this do they? at the end of the year the whole tribe will be festering more new STD’s than a thousand haitis fucking a thousand saudi arabias.

  22. uncle don Says:

    I was kinda thinkin free pussy.

  23. OC VAGO 1%er Says:

    Wasn’t this commune thing tried on a grand scale as the Soviet Union? And that failed miserably!

  24. Bill Says:

    I like the “peyote and beer” idea as the basis for some kind of “reality” programming. It would quickly take things “To the thin line beyond which you really can’t fake.”
