Endemol in 'win a kidney' TV show rumpus


Let's think about this....

My knee jerk reaction is that I am disgusted to see the decision of life and death (in a way) played out on a game show. It's not like not winning the million dollars, or not getting the man of your dreams. However, after thinking about it, I understand the importance of bringing to the forefront this overwhelming problem of there being a lack of organ doners. Perhaps a "happy" medium, would be to make a documentary style program following the life of the doner as well as the reciprient, and as well include those people who have not been accepted for the kidney transplant at this point. Somehow it would seem more serious and less trite as it sounds now, being played out in a game show.
