Normally, I would look away and cringe in agony when I see a dating show on TV, I find them very lame and sappy for my taste. However, Meet My Folks is slightly different. The plot is, 3 men or women go to house to meet a charming mum and an angry Dad to attempt to win a trip to Hawaii with their son or daughter, the 3 become 2, they have a lie detector test, and 2 become 1, the 1 goes to Hawaii with the son/daughter, got that. Ironically this show has more secrets revealed than a Hollywood marriage, for one show I have never seen more blatant secrets revealed in my life. The one thing I don't get are the dates with the victim, why I use victim is simple, the son/daughter is the victim of some of the worse dates ever shown on television, yet he/she enjoys it, of course they don't get of of the house much that's why Mom and Dad had to supply 3 losers for their enjoyment. The best part has to be the lie detector test, although predictably, it really shows (no offense) that most Americans tend to lie, cheat and steal there way to win a date. All in all, something for the family, hey, at least it's better than any other dating show. *** (out of 5)
