"One Ocean View", was brought to you by the same people behind MTV's "The Real World." But if you were unfortunate enough to have witnessed it, you don't need me to tell you this. The show's first ep is like a typical first ep of RW, where the housemates arrive in pairs to the beachfront property that will serve as their home for the summer, out on New York's Fire Island. And yes, they do have a hot tub.
Aside from the lower energy/ more mature exploration of the space (fewer screams about how great it all is), the typical discussion of who is who and what's going on, there's nothing notable about this program. Yeah, these people are "older" and are on their way to careers, but they're also a lot duller than the characters from a typical "RW" season. What is there worth watching about this group of 11?
Ok, there was a set of identical twins. So, maybe we should count them as one? And there was a set of exes that somehow are still friends, and maybe still more. So what?
The personalities in this group are the sort of people you might chat with over a drink at somebody's house party while you wait for your date to get out of the bathroom, but to spend a whole summer with these fools? Well, we didn't, because the show got axed in just two episodes.
At the time, Bunim/Murray had done fifteen seasons of "The Real World." You would have thought they could have produced something worth watching for a couple of summer months. No.
