I Am Cait Episode 7 – Back to Standard Reality TV

To its detriment, this week’s I Am Cait dips a little back towards the more standard reality TV template. It’s still not following the same content of reality TV but after two shows where they decided to throw the formulae out of the window we’re back to reality TV land. That’s not to say this is a bad episode, it’s not, it had a couple of interesting things in it but it’s not as different as the last two and I think that’s a pity.

To me this was the least reality TV—but most real—of all the episodes that we’ve seen so far. We got a little slice of life into Caitlyn Jenner’s private world when all the parties aren’t happening.

I Am Cait, Episode 3- Friendship Is Magic?

It’s the I Am Cait road trip part two, with this episode carrying on from the last one during a four day road trip. Normally each episode has a theme, this week is no different, it’s friendship. We get more Caitlyn partying and being rude to people, but also some realisation that she’s not acting in the best way, with her mending relationships. So it’s not quite the slow motion train wreck of last week where Caitlyn Jenner proved to be a diva of the worst kind. Is the show any better? Well

I Am Cait #2 – It Goes Bad

Reality TV is a parallel to reality, it’s been packaged and polished; Caitlyn Jenner’s I Am Cait delivers this unreality. A lot of people love this kind of TV, but I’m not one of them. So before I even try to unpack the content of the show, I struggle with its format. Last week, I was largely positive toward Caitlyn personally, as well as the show; for one of those, it’s about to change.
