What on earth is the appeal?
26 April 2003 | by (Provo, UT) – See all my reviews

Try as I might, I can hardly imagine that the appeal for Shipmates is that it's a "great dating show." Perhaps host Chris Hardwick keeps SOME coming back, but why do people REALLY watch this show? Two words: Sex and violence. Each date ends in either one of these two ways. They either end up in the bedroom (sometimes before the end...) or ready to kill each other. I guess people who don't get enough S & V on other trashy shows like Blind Date and ElimiDate watch this show to get even more.

What is this world coming to when TV resorts to physical intimacy or aggression between perfect strangers, relying on these degrading elements to get people to watch. The really sad part was that it works. Oh the humanity... It's like people aren't people anymore, they're objects whose primary use is to entertain, no matter by what sexual or violent means. Decency is definitely a thing of the past.

While Shipmates has one or two redeeming episodes, they somehow manage to get the most arrogant, immoral, superficial, disgusting examples of humanity possible on display. You'd do much better to watch Survivor for intelligent, interesting and moral (comparatively) entertainment.
