The Game Show’s Erogenous Zones
A game show seems to be the last place where one would find love; however, many artists have seen a deeper quest hidden inside the game show’s pursuit of trivial knowledge: the desire to know another person completely. Round Two argues that game-show discourse and romantic discourse are not as dissimilar as one would initially think. Films such as Ron Shelton’s White Men Can’t Jump and Jim Sharman’s Shock Treatment,works of fiction such as Alexandra Kleeman’s You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine and Helen De Witt’s Lightning Rods, and the unexpected-but-nevertheless-real subgenre of game-show erotica demonstrate the ways in which the game show can help lovers navigate the romantic hypermarket.
