Netflix show: Travels with my father

socks

I cannot figure out if it's a documentary or scripted show. I'm not a big laugher and find most sit coms not very funny (except maybe Big Bang), but I have laughed at this show.


Has anyone else watched this?

There is no such thing as a "reality" show. They are all scripted to a point. But I do like the ad-libbing of this particular show. I don't know that it's a written script, or just "make a crack about _____" .... You know what I mean?

Of course, Debby. Producers of tv shows could not just let things take their course. Might be bad, might be boring. Do you laugh, Debby?


MAYBE SPOILERS HERE....


I laughed when the father saw the hostel accommodations especially. And when they were in the canoe too. The son is so accommodating, trying to make dad happy.

Every "show" is a scripted show. Events, comments, conversation, etc., decided in advance and rehearsed. Unless described as improvisation or documentary. Most and maybe all "documentaries" are scripted.


There are lots of phony "documentaries" around, trying to disguise what they really are, opinion pieces. The films of Michael Moore come to mind.
