Reality TV Gets Ugly! Movie Makeup Artists Face-off on FACE OFF

By at January 26, 2011 | 8:38 pm | Print

Bad cooks. Dog groomers. Desperate spouse seekers. Man, we’ve seen a lot of reality / contest show crap on TV. But here’s one competition that seems bigger on creativity and lower on trash: Face Off, Syfy’s foray into the reality / contest world, where 12 special-effects makeup artists will compete to impress some pretty impressive names in the movie makeup business. It all starts tonight on Syfy at 10pm ET.

Check out Syfy’s home for Face Off videos: trailers, clips, bonus goodies, etc.

Now, this might sound a little too purist for most, but if Face Off can stick to the movie stuff and ease up on developing lame TV personalities among the contestants, they may have something. Oh, and there should be plenty of movie and TV talk.

    Face Off had a promising start. The format is fairly typical for a reality-show but the subject matter really makes this one come alive. As a DISH Network subscriber/employee I am glad I was able to watch this one in HD. High Definition is almost a necessity for a show like this where the smallest details matter. If you don’t currently have HD I recommend making the switch. The prices for HD TV’s have gotten very reasonable and DISH offers HD Free for Life with all of their top packages. You’ll be amazed at the difference. I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of this season, SyFy hit the mark with Face Off.
