In all my years of watching TV, I don't think I've come across anything more utterly pointless and boring than Splash. It's literally a show that makes you wonder how a show like this could ever have any appeal whatsoever to the audience.
The show centers around a group of celebrities chosen to compete against other celebrities in a diving competition. Yes, you've read that right, a diving competition. How desperate were these creators in coming up with a competition? I mean they really couldn't do some obstacle course or a game show or something? A diving competition sounds as appealing as filing your taxes, even with celebrities in it. And just so they could try to liven the show up, we are shown the back story of these celebrities and how they trained along with some guy named Tom Daley before they do their dive. And when the celebrity is going to dive, you don't feel any tension at all whatsoever since there really is none to begin with. Really, are we supposed to feel suspense or tension from seeing somebody about to dive? I feel more like I'm ready to fall asleep from the sheer amount of boredom in this show. Why should a TV show focus on something that feels more fit for a home movie than being a national show? And for that matter, was this really the best they could come up with for this show? Honestly, are we getting so desperate for ideas now that we're resorting to this kind of junk? I hate to think what they'll come up with next.
Overall, Splash is as fun as having your head smashed against a brick wall repeatedly. It has virtually no appeal whatsoever to anyone at all and its premise is not interesting in the least bit. What's the point of this show anyway? Why is it even here in the first place? I guess I'll never know, but I certainly hope this show is axed ASAP. Even if you love the celebrities you see or are a swimming activist, I don't recommend this show at all. If I could say one positive though, this show is perfect for those with insomnia. I guarantee you'll fall asleep within a minute of watching this show. Everyone else though should steer as far away from this boring and pointless show as possible.
