Car crash television
9 September 2013 | by (Glasgow, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I feel compelled to write a review about this television show as my work colleague had become engrossed. She then proceeded to burn the whole first series and insist I watch them. Eight hours or so of my life that I will never get back. In retaliation to the punishment, I had to endure, I have written my first review ( to stick it to my colleague ) lol.

The premise of the show is good however that's where it stops. We are force-fed these ridiculous episodes featuring people ranging from surreal, desperate to pathetic and without shame. We are supposed to believe that these individuals lack any real foresight or acumen and they come across as rabbits caught in the headlights. The two hosts have a pseudo- homo erotic bromance going on which is further annoying. Speaking of the hosts, each episode they seemed to find it effortless to sort out the fact from fiction with regards to the online persona's and it smacks the question, why did the original people in the relationships not contemplate completing their own investigations? I believe that the whole show is scripted and may go as far saying that the "pawns" are on the payroll, a la Jerry Springer show.

The hosts had an opportunity to actually oust these fake profile makers and try change the publics perceptions and attitudes towards online safety. We have advertisements over here claiming that in America, 1 in 3 marriages are from relationships started online, so it is big business. My question is surely the individuals involved must realise quite quickly or at least have a notion that something is amiss ( perhaps this is my Scottish cynicism ). What I do see from this show, and this is only my opinion, is that the hosts are obviously planting the online offenders and/or fabrication and sensationalising the events. When it is all revealed toward the end, the hosts are stand offish and not ruthless in their convictions when faced with things that are blatantly blatantly wrong. Must be making money though. Anyway rantover.com
