Just watched this show for the first time, and a strange sort of anger, a fury, took hold of me. Anger now, is reason enough for a comment on IMDb. 'Date my mom' is a show bought by a Dutch TV-channel, and probably bought by a whole lot of other countries, intended for people of 16 or less to watch. While watching the actors, because that's what they are, say their lines, because that's what they are, all i could think was: where or what or who is the force that gives shows like these the opportunity to be on television? And, assuming it's a human force, alas, is it not ashamed of itself? Not to mention the shows that are far worse.
Regarding this as a fictional item, i can be brief: the actors seem to do their very best at making something of the dialogue they have been given; it's quite obvious, however, that they are not comfortable in their roles.
As for the director and the writer: if you can't make up your mind as to whether you should make fiction or documentary, make nothing at all. If you are afraid of unexpected turns, stay away from either. If you can't write, stay away from either.
The producer has a talent for selling rotten fruit so, even though there are thousands of people with a talent for buying, please, use your talent somewhere else.
Thinking of the generation of children growing up with even the least bit of this sort of television, wondering how they will rule the earth, my mind goes apocalyptic on me, and i don't know whether to laugh or cry. Probably both, and that will be the way that i go under.
