The occasional happy outcome aside, though, what's sad about this show is how it makes a joke out of an incredibly painful subject. The women seeking answers come across as glib and vacant, and the men in the hot seat seem amused (after being dumped, one man exclaims, "all right!"), perturbed, and defensive. Doherty obviously means well, but the way she injects herself into such personal situations with so little outward unease won't give viewers much to like about both her and her show.
