Sick, Sick, Sick ... but somehow entertaining.
4 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of show that you would probably never deliberately choose to watch. I happen to see a string of episodes because the TV channel was already on MTV and it was on in the background ... and I got drawn in.

The show is formulaic (with portions obviously scripted), simplistic and revenge-based: you kind of want to see a rude and egotistical teenager get some payback (but it doesn't always go that way).

The setup which uses real kids, their parents and prospective dates works. The caustic dialog (again, obviously scripted) is just so nuts that it's actually interesting to hear it coming from their mouths.

Here's the setup: A teenager's parents are fed up with their kid's current boyfriend/girlfriend so they select two new prospects and send them on dates. Then the fireworks start: the parents and the current boyfriend/girlfriend sit together and watch the dates on video. They make very insulting remarks to each other as things happen. At the end, the kid has the final say: continue as before, or start dating one of the new people.

The bitterly outrageous dialog between the parents and the current boyfriend/girlfriend is the core of the show. The dates themselves are always shown to be blandly upbeat. They are a bit bizarre though, so they are probably ones thought up by the show's producers (like playing soccer with leaf-blowers - who would think of that?).

Even though I rate it a "6", this is probably not a show that you would look forward to watching (or would plan to watch) - it's just one that can hook you in if you happen to randomly start watching it. It's amusing, if you can appreciate a bit of sick fun.
