Is It Any Good?

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

This show is touted as the first real-time dating show in the United States, and each episode is filmed a few days before it airs, which offers (in theory) a more genuine true-life experience. However, the fact that these folks are willingly exposing their dating lives on national television still makes it feel a bit contrived, especially when they ask viewers to send them tweets or go to the show's website in between scenes.

It's certainly voyeuristic, but it also offers some interesting insight about why dating can be so awkward and difficult, which includes finding people to interact with in person instead of digitally and trying to find a mate after choosing to spend one's younger years focusing on building a career. If you like this sort of reality fare, you'll find it entertaining. But, for those interested in knowing what the dating world can be like, it isn't for the faint of heart.

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.
