The low-budget and decidedly awkward dating series features 20- and 30-somethings attempting to hook up with people under the watchful eye of someone they consider to be their closest confidant. Like most reality shows of this type, it features over-the-top flirtatious behavior and drinking as each person cycles through the cast in hope of making a love match. But Dated & Related takes it to a different level thanks to scenes showing brothers and sisters watching each other make out with someone, and romantic couples who invite their kinfolk to sleep in their bed with them. The occasional competition for another's love interest also makes it weird. Overall, it's a show so full of uncomfortable moments that even fans of this sort of reality fare may be turned off by it.
