Alton Williams II,
I've only seen one episode and even I can tell this looks staged!
This, my friends, is why I almost always hate reality TV.
Basically, the premise of Parental Control is that there is a young man/woman who has a girlfriend/boyfriend that his/her parents are unhappy with. So the each parent chooses from a large number of applicants the "girl/guy of their son's daughter's dreams" and sets them up on a blind date.
This show is absolutely ridiculous. I just saw an episode with a guy named Julius who had a girlfriend who... well, let's just say that he must have been crazy to start going with her in the first place. She spent the entire episode knocking Julius's parents and dates and acting completely crazy.
And the parent's dating choices? *sigh* Julius's mother chose a girl who tried to woo Julius by taking him to the Universal Studios backlot. The father's choice was a girl who claimed she "has goals" and "respects herself"... but she was a pole-dancer! And the mother seemed okay with her husband's choice of a pole-dancer, which I find very hard to believe.
Do not watch this show, and maybe it'll go off the air for good.
