Parental Control - The Downfall To Human Society
16 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a wonder how MTV's Parental Control has lasted four years already. First off I would like to say I usually give an in depth, fair, non-biased review for most movies and television shows I watch these days. But I'm not going to do that for Parental Control. This show sucks so bad, that it doesn't even deserve a fair review. Parental Control is a simple minded show. A random teenager/young adult living at their parents house has an annoying boyfriend/girlfriend that their parents do not like. The parents therefore interview a number of people that could be their son/daughter's new companion and then pick a number of them to date their child based on their personality, looks, and so on. Their child then goes on a date with the candidates while the girlfriend or boyfriend and the parents sit back and watch all the dates happen.

To get on with the point of this review, this show has no positive points at all. All of the scenarios appear to be portrayed by actors. Why do I assume this? The words spoken out of the mouths of every parent and so called disliked girlfriend or boyfriend on the show are extremely lame, cheesy, and scripted. Sometimes, the disliked boyfriend or girlfriend will actually get dumped for one of the parents picks, and they act as if they don't give a damn at all! I would be furious if I were dumped on a stupid TV show. Fake arguments, fake facial expressions, and poor acting display how Parental Control is a horrible show, and the whole purpose of the television show is defeated due to that fact. I would envy MTV if they actually used real couples on families on this television show, but they do not.

It boggles the mind how anyone could enjoy or watch this show. No doubt MTV's audience is teenagers who are stuck at home with basic cable. I am not biased against reality television either. In fact, I am a big fan of shows like Big Brother and a few others. But this is not a reality show because it is portrayed by actors. MTV was once a respectable channel with a big goal in mind; to bring the world of music to more audiences featuring music videos 24/7. They brought to popularity some of the biggest musicians in the world today including Guns N Roses, Nirvana, and a handful of others. MTV's original image is gone now, replaced by craptastic shows like Parental Control, The Hills, and many other horrible shows. Why, MTV? What happened that made your channel go down the toilet?
