Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Coupled is a dating competition wherein women and men seek long-term relationships. It's less scandalous than other series of this kind, but there are lots of skin-revealing bathing suits, innuendo, and drinking. Words such as "ass" are audible, but curses are bleeped.
Is It Any Good?
The premise of the series is pretty unoriginal. It offers the typical, expected reality dating experience we've come to know (and sometimes love), with a tropical paradise, sexy bikinis, and lots of drinking. Adding to this are endless awkward moments, as well as the intimacy and expressions of love that come after about 24 hours of people knowing each other.
Unlike other dating shows, the women appear more supportive of each other, despite all of them wanting to find love from the same men. But while they get to choose who they want to meet at the very beginning, it's the men who are ultimately given the power to select who they want to be coupled with.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
