    I think this show is a good way to past time. If you criticize the show and you don't like it don't watch it. lol ;)
  • Don't Script it.

    4.5
    I think that this show would be much better, if it wasn't so fake. You don't know what to believe, cause it is so scripted. Try making more realistic.
  • Scripted and Stupid, yet entertaining

    5.0
    Though this show is clearly scripted, it manages to be more entertaining than shows like Jersey Shore and Ridiculousness. Please understand that this is no way a great show but it manages to put the factor of "mystery" in the show and I suppose that is why people stay to watch it. By mystery factor, I of course mean what kind of person will the child going on these dates choose? and who or what kind of nonsense will the the person watching their significant other have to say or feel about their boyfriend/girlfriend going on these dates with another person? I don't take this show seriously, I kind of look at it as a show that is watchable when there is nothing else on television but nothing to take seriously. It's entertainment value that's all it is, and viewers should take that into account when watching the show. I mean seriously, there is no way that, someone could go on a date with a completely random person they don't even know that well and within a few minutes decide which date she/he wants to choose, when most relationships have take time to build. Do I recommend the show? Not really, but if you happen to flip by this show and there is nothing else to watch, just take a gander at it, who knows, maybe you'll actually find it interesting.moreless

  • A horribly scripted dating show, that makes one liners from movies like Terminator and Die Hard look like Robert Frost.

    WTF happened to MTV? There used to be shows worth watching inbetween ACTUAL music videos being played. This channel has turned into nothing but scripted "reality" dating and teeny bopper shows. Are any MTV "reality" shows real anymore? I am starting to highly doubt it. Trying to convince a hardcore MTV fan these shows are scripted, is like explaining to a redneck wrestling is fake. I gave this show 1 point for getting these actors to say the crap they wrote. If anyone actually takes this show seriously, they need to be taken outside and shot. If you still watch this show only for the comical value, then i'll lesser your sentence to a beating within inches of your life.moreless
