"this is so unfair to me" hahahaha

From the people who made children's hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV, comes a spoof on the bachelor / bachelorette reality format that i can only imagine takes place in the same fake TV universe. They nail the ridiculousness of the entire process to a T, with scores of terrible women competing for one terrible man in the first season, and then in the second season scores of terrible men competing for one terrible woman. They make fun of not just the dating process and the entire fakeness of reality television, but they manage to add a whole cast of over the top eccentric characters from big name actors who i'm surprised to see in something so under the radar. I only heard about this show because it was mentioned offhand in an interview about children's hospital but i'm glad i checked it out. Its one of those things that they didn't bother to advertise properly but its such a well done show that if they did, burning love would have a lot of loyal fans.

I think the funniest part is despite being a parody, most of its satire comes in pointing out how ridiculous the shows it parodies are already. And it uses each of its cast to perfection, from Jennifer aniston who refuses to leave her panda costume, to Natasha leggero as the slutty wild child who refuses to wear pants or underwear because she's just so "empowered". And then there's just a randomly placed old woman named Esther who somehow always makes it into the next round despite having pretty serious dementia, or Rob Huebel who is competing as an actual real life prince. Or Abagail Spencers character Annie who's ridiculous hotness is always played up as a way to steal June Diane Raphaels self absorbed temper tantrum throwing thunder. Hell, they even managed to make Ben Stiller funny, and i haven't liked much of his stuff since zoolander.

I think the one part about this show that was unpleasant for me was all the cringe worthy "blaze" moments, because i've actually known WAYYYYY too many women who only chased the one man who didn't actually want them. I can't tell you how many women i've dated who thought they were too good for me until i was repulsed by them in which they became obsessive whiny emotional horny freaks. Which is even more repulsive. So that hits a bit close to home. But its also pretty accurate.
