Does this qualify as a reality show?
29 October 2008 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Normally reality shows have some sort of realism to them. The characters in reality shows are supposed to act at least somewhat natural. The situations are also generally at least semi-plausible and make sense. "Parental Control" has not an ounce of realism to it, and is just obviously fake and staged in every way. If the show would just come out and say it's not a real reality show, it would become much more enjoyable, but as long as they keep the facade of realism to this show, it's just embarrassing and hard to sit through.

Every episode features a couple parents with a daughter or son. The parents hate their child's boyfriend or girlfriend, and they want their kid to find another date. The parents choose two kids from a few potential children, and the two go on a date with their kid. The parents generally act very stupid, and their child's boyfriend or girlfriend is always horrible to the parents and their kid. The dates they go on make no sense, and overall this show is about as much of a reality show as King of Queens.

This show is just overall obnoxious. The parents are always cracking bad jokes and act like babies, and their kid's boy/girlfriend are about as mean and rude as anyone could get. The dates that these kids go on are so fake! They're obviously set up, considering how unique they are, including going to an empty burger place and cooking food, to going to an empty dance studio for a private dance lesson to going to an empty school and oil sliding. Why is every place empty and why do these kids have access to all these places?

The premise is ridiculous, the acting is horrible and this is not a reality show in the least. If you can get past the stupidity, it is easy to let your mind go and enjoy this, but nonetheless this is still one of Mtv's worst.

My rating: * 1/2 out of ****. 30 mins. TV14
