Good information and very interesting, but narration and interviews often overtly sexist
29 May 2018 | by muphiekinsSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed watching this series, however, I did notice a pattern in how certain women were talked about. There was one episode (Family Fortune Feud) in which one of the fraudsters married an adult entertainer. One of his friends is interviewed, and says that he didn't think she would have the qualities to be a good wife or mother, specifically because of her line of work.

I understand that he's free to say what he wants. However, the network has a responsibility to not promote casual sexism. They likely had plenty of interview footage to work with, but chose to use the "juiciest" parts. There is another episode where a woman they interviewed said she would never have invested with him (the fraudster) if she'd known what she (his wife) did for a living. The fraudsters wife was a stripper.

Men are also not spared. Multiple episodes go into great detail about how unattractive certain men were, or how short they were, almost as if to say, "so you understand why they'd..."

Even worse is the narration, when employs various outdated phrases to describe a variety of women who don't fit the oblivious homemaker mold.

It was very interesting to see a show explaining essentially that you can't trust someone based on what you see and what they say, while still enforcing the antiquated cultural ideas of who should and shouldn't be trusted.

So, yes, this was very interesting. I would not, however, recommend it to children or teenagers without context because of the casual sexism.
