Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The formulaic series attempts to turn the tables on traditional reality dating scenarios by giving "older" women the power to choose potential partners among eager younger men. Outside of the flirtatious behavior, innuendo, and tension between the men vying for their attention, the women appear to be searching for men who demonstrate a maturity more common in older men. On the flip side, there are moments when the women appear to be talking to contestants as if they were teenagers, and mothering is sometimes a theme. All of this gives the show an odd overall vibe. But Back in the Groove refrains from being too catty or cut throat, and tries to keep the insults, which are often uttered by Pedro the Concierge, to a minimum. Not everyone will appreciate the characterization of 40-year-old women here, but if you like dating competitions, you'll find it mildly entertaining.
