After nineteen episodes (I missed the 31st and 32nd), The Hills still remains mostly boring, *but* every once in a while comes an episode that happens to contain some drama. This is one of those. Still, while this is an episode where some event actually seems to change the status quo of the interpersonal relationships between the people, the fact that these are "real" people (or as *real* as one can be, *aware* of the camera eye) and real situations means that compared to scripted drama, the arguments, peace offers, declarations and whatever are inevitably less dramatic (this isn't "Flavor of Love", after all). As one media studies professional recently pointed out on national TV here in Finland, the viewers can become attached to the people on reality shows (there is an actual scientific expression for it, but I can't remember it) and will lap up even the tiniest experiences of those people. It's just that in The Hills, things have yet to evolve to the point where the people in the show are *manipulating* the show to serve their craving for fame. Now *that's* when this show becomes more interesting.
