A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show sends the message that finding healthy relationships can be difficult, but it's possible if you are willing to work on it. Clients are expected to change their looks and behavior in order to date more successfully, but most of the focus is on their behavior and attitude toward themselves and others.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this matchmaking series features blunt-but-constructive messages for adults navigating the dating world. Not surprisingly, it has lots of awkward dating moments, as well as some sexual references and tips for flirting. Strong language ("s--t," "f--k") is bleeped, and people typically drink alcohol (cocktails, beer, etc.) during dates.
Is It Any Good?
From big egos to endless talkers, viewers will be entertained by the wide variety of embarrassing dating moments featured here. Flicker also brings an intelligent sense of humor to the whole process. And, laughs aside, she's committed to demonstrating how these painfully awkward events become teachable moments that help people become more aware of their behavior.
Sure, the show is voyeuristic, but Flicker and her team offer some concrete examples of what to do (and not to do) on a date -- which many folks will find helpful. The series also serves as a reminder to single people everywhere that they're not alone.
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.
