Six weeks ago three couples married as perfect strangers. After, marrying, honeymooning, moving in together and sharing their lives the social experiment comes to an end. Experts matched the couples ...
The couples entertain each other's friends for the first time and for some, this turns out to be quite a stressful situation. One more couple has consummated their marriage and they quickly discover ...
Fascinating concept- could use major improvements.
I just watched this as a marathon. I wanted to love it, kind of like Monet and Vaughn wanted to love each other, but some glaring issues remain:
My biggest gripe is that 1month is completely inadequate for an experiment such as this. I suggest at least 6 months to truly get to the depths of how two people adjust to an arranged marriage. I understand that there are other concerns when producing a TV show, but one month can't be taken seriously. It almost smells lazy in terms of production.
The show recycled sound bites way too much. It was awful listening to the same quotes every episode!
The matching process was hardly described- really vague. It made the first episode quite boring- which worked for me because I watched the wedding one first, so I was already hooked. But what would be educational about this show is to learn more about how they matched these couples.
Another suggestion: it might be beneficial to round out every episode with a therapy session for each couple. It's another chance to educate the audience on healthy ways to confront marital issues, and it might help redirect couples early on, thereby increasing their chances of staying together.
