.. there is hope..
26 September 2015 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

It's a very interesting program.. to get snapshot personalities of each of the participants, and what they reveal so readily to the camera is at times astounding. There are individuals you would want nothing at all to do with.. and why someone would subsequently 'choose' to go out on a date with them is interesting. As for the program format, the biggest issue is those returning for another 'first date'... as not enough background detail is provided the viewer. Like when we've seen both people before, but we're not informed as to which one of the two actually selected the other (that information would be most helpful). And why have some come back four or more times.. what's the point? Some insightful analysis of the problems must account for the repeat failures. And no doubt, it must be watched after being taped, for fast-forwarding through uninteresting/ boring footage (which there should be made less of) is essential to enjoyable viewing. It's a refreshing show, as the majority of these young people seem to be genuinely nice/ likable people, and in a age of such foreboding issues, that leaves a glimmer of hope for our future. And as a heads-up to the producers, the new format for the third season was not an improvement.. it turned out more of a distraction than was worth it.. giving the program more of a phony, contrived feel.
