Finally, a decent MTV reality show!
14 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Catfish follows around Nev and his film crew, helping love struck people expose the true identities of their online flirtations. Some of the anonymous love interests turn out to be exactly who they are... but others aren't so lucky.

I've never watched the Catfish documentary which started the TV series, but now I'm tempted to. There's something so appealing about the whole anonymous relationship thing, since it's something that's become the norm in our culture and a whole new way of dating and courtship.

I like the way the show is set up. We learn not only about the main person looking for their online friend, but we get to learn about the person behind the profile, despite them remaining anonymous to us throughout the first 30 minutes of the show. The camera work is straight forward and inviting, we even see Nev's friend Max constantly recording everything!

The only issue I have with this show is, once you have seen the outcomes of a few episodes, you will know what to expect from the rest, which kind of takes away the shock value that makes this show seem so appealing.

Great, entertaining show. 8/10
