Terrible Representation of RAs and largely offensive
I just watched the first episode of "Resident Advisors" and while I realize that many shows have a shaky Pilot episode, I have to say that I am thoroughly disgusted. The entire time I watched this episode I was cringing; this show should be used as a form of torture to weed out the bad RA's during the RA class/training. RA's dealing drugs and trying to sleep with residents/their hall directors? This show is not representative of actual RA life and I would discourage anyone from giving it views. Get this show cancelled; my job is hard enough to explain as it is. The worst part I have to say, is the mockery of the richness of diversity in actual residence life communities; mocking transgender individuals is actually really disgusting and I thought this show looked a little more grown up than that. The Resident Assistant/Adviser position is extremely challenging and honestly if you decide to watch this horrible show you should keep in mind that the people producing this probably never even worked as RAs... they were probably the ones who tore our stuff down in the hallways and kept getting caught drinking underage. Positive about the show: I can appreciate that the show makes no effort to hide the craziness of the incidents that we deal with on a daily basis. The only reason I am writing this much is because IMDb requires 10 lines of text. I have nothing more to say about this show.
