HELP: Looking for Bradbury Short Story
 Login/Join

I read a story by Bradbury years ago. I cannot remember the title or where I saw it. But it is about a future world where Reality TV has pretty much taken over everything. I was wondering if anyone could help me find this story. Either just tell me the title, or tell me some anthology somewhere that it might be found. Thanks.

Sounds like F451 to me. Anyone else?

Thanks. But I know it isn't 451.

I doubt much that Ray has much to comment and likely nothing to write about the recent fad of Reality tv. Tho it'll probably be around forever, like the hoola-hoop. Not a Bradbury work.

The story in question was from the 1950s (I think) it is definately not recent. So he may have had an inkling about Reality TV. Plus, the TV in question is a lot more... horrid than it is today.

Hmm, depends on what you mean by Reality TV and "taking over". You wouldn't be referring to "The Veldt", by any chance?
