Finally -- a reality show that feels REAL.
7 February 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although only a few episodes into the series I've grown quite interested in this show. It's real, it's Canadian, and it's as unvarnished as a Kiwanis Club picnic. It has quickly come to feel as comfortable as my favourite old pair of jeans. THIS is what reality TV should be! The closest the Americans have come would have to be those spousal-swap shows, which unfortunately must exploit the fish-out-of-water concept to a ridiculous degree to have any appeal. By contrast, TWTWW is based on a brilliantly simple premise that's very well executed, enabling us to sit back and enjoy without having to dial-down our IQs into two digits for the hour. Kudos to the families of Hardisty, Alberta, for baring all for the cameras and letting us check out the gritty details of their ordinary lives, and kudos to the producers for making those throwing just enough chaos into those ordinary lives to make for some truly entertaining television, without stooping to the level of US-style theatrics.
