Heidi Klum hosts a reality series where aspiring fashion designers compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges' panel.
Fox is proud of its fostering relationship to the most grimy, intelligence-insulting reality TV trash like Joe Millionaire and The Swan. Shocked, then, I was to find that their Trading Spouses is far better than ABC's far more grimy, intelligence-insulting Wifeswap. In Trading Spouses, the crassest of networks, wonder-of-wonders, consistently puts together a show that succeeds, without straining, in achieving something that is truly broadening, touching and even (gag) "heartwarming." Episode after episode, people who thought themselves deadly enemies on sight cry and kiss on parting. Lifelong friendships are forged. The show actually sends a very Liberal message: the similarities binding all people are more important, more relevant, than their differences. I can't help but wonder if Fox was aware of that.
