Microsoft Learning Meets Reality TV (Online)

Think of the most unsexy idea for a reality online show there is and you might come up with this: Four SQL programmers/Microsoft employee wannabes put to several challenges trying to squeeze information out of databases. And the title? Not one dreamed up by Microsoft marketing, for sure, because it's pretty straightforward: "Be the Next Microsoft Employee."

Well, I did watch one episode, and unless they bring in a loud, overbearing matriarchical dance teacher or drunk and spray-tanned malingerers or even a supermodel who can compile some C, it's probably my last.

I watched every minute of this one, but the next episode's teaser just wasn't compelling enough for me to waste another 15 minutes of my life that I could otherwise spend on Lizard Lick Towing.
