A sleazy, third-rate "Love American Style" for the new millenium.
This show is a tacky, terribly written and directed, abysmally acted, and pretty mild (considering the sexual innuendo) piece of sleaze. Each episode revolves around one thing and one thing only: how to get two attractive actors who (as somebody said in an earlier review) resemble porn stars rather than legitimate thespians out of their clothes and into the sack without actually showing anything. Every once in a while the heavy petting that results will involve spreading food over their bodies, but never on any area that would actually lead to any frenzied bodily reaction.
Also, since this is MTV, the "with-it" network, some of the storylines involve gay couples, but with equally tawdry results. The fun with these episodes actually comes with watching how comfortable these non-actors are with their on-screen gay personas. One episode I remember involved two gay teens, one of who has written a "prize-winning" play (which in rehearsal is even worse than the episode it is contained in) outing his in-the-closet boyfriend which is to be performed in front of the entire school with the gay playwrite's sister's boyfriend playing opposite him in a kissing scene. (Yeah, right.) The boyfriend spends the whole time moaning about having to "kiss a guy," while the playwrite's boyfriend has the nerve to be offended about being outed against his will! Will the playwrite submit to his boyfriend's demand to change the play and therefore compromise his "artistry." Do we care? Of course not. The reason I'm even bringing this up is that the entertaining part of the whole episode was watching the two "gay" teens, who had no chemistry whatsoever and seemed totally ill at ease within ten feet of each other while the sister's boyfriend and playwrite had tons more chemistry and made a more convincing couple!
But enough! I've spent more time on this dreck than I need to. I can only hope that this show stays on the air for a long time to come. Why? Because as long as it airs, I'll always be able to get to sleep. Grade: D Incidentally, this show is executive produced by Roland Joffe, who if I am not mistaken in the '80's gained two Academy Award nominations for directing two terrific films: "The Mission" and "The Killing Fields." How far the great ones sometimes fall!
