Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

As with most reality series of this type, much of the focus is on the contestants, who engage in catty, competitive, and outright obnoxious behavior to secure the affections of a man they've just met. But this show is as much about Matt Hicks, who is working hard to pretend to be a wealthy member of royalty, while simultaneously hoping that someone will like him for the average young man he really is.

The show is painful to watch, especially when the women are so easily duped, despite the fact that Hicks never really admits to being His Royal Highness. Meanwhile, Hicks' desire to find true love by being dishonest just seems silly. It doesn't send very positive messages about dating, relationships, or honesty, and it certainly succeeds in making American women appear foolish.
