I think this format is genius. Of course fans of the show would be consumed with all the behind the scenes drama, just as we were in the 90s. Had they just done a straight reboot the script and show would have been savaged by fans. So it's smart to minimize the show, and show us the behind the scenes stuff that we want. It's hilarious and campy and I'm here for it.
And I love the passive aggressive swipes at Dean McDermott.
