12 Seasons?!?!
21 April 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I have a mother who enjoys this show which is the only reason why I have seen more than just a couple of episodes. It seems to me that this man is being paid millions of dollars and has international fame based on what thousands of others do for just a couple hundred dollars and completely unknown.

Okay so the show is pretty much a psychologist talks to people... You need more? Well Sorry that's a premise that's able to last 12 Seasons. Then there's the situations themselves. I lost count but how many times has he shown a woman who is like "I met this guy on the internet, never seen him face to face, constantly makes excuses to why he can never leave his native country but I threw away all my life savings to this man because I LOVE HIM!".

Okay I might have been a little too insensitive to people who fall under online scams. I know there are poor people who are victimized because they meet some unknown asshole on the internet with a false name and story but with this - broadcasting it on live television. It's not interesting and with every one of these things it's pretty much the same thing over and over. It's pretty much "I love him" "He's not real and these are all the things to prove it!" "Okay". I've just summed up an entire episode for you.

So pretty much all this show is is conveying a response from the audience while also having no substance and have Dr Phil be some Guardian Angel figure who says his life is pretty much the same as people in photographs, basically has no real problems or issues but somehow knows the advice for every single emotional problem and situation. I mean I guess you can like it but I just don't.
