As seen in: The Running Man (1987)

A full five years before the first episode of The Real World, The Running Man saw where reality television was headed. In The Running Man, everyone's favorite Governator is forced to participate in a violent game show after being framed for the murder of unarmed innocents. On the program, characters with names like Buzzsaw hunt him, most dangerous game style. Several years after The Running Man was released, American Gladiators premiered, clearly inspired by the film. Though nasty reality shows laid dormant for a while after that, it isn't hard to see a bit of The Running Man in shows like Survivor and the fights that break out on pretty much every reality show at least a few times a season.
