I looked at the calendar today and realized my kiddo has just over a month until school starts. That’s crazy. I swear, June flew by, and we’re already into the second week of July! I am happy, though, because it means we’re that much closer to the new fall TV season. Woohoo! But I’m getting ahead of myself, since there’s plenty on tonight to hold our interest. Check out our recommendations. 🙂
Jenny’s Choice #2
There’s a new channel on our TV lineup…sort of. Named the Biography Channel until today, the FYI network is rolling out a whole host of new shows, starting with my pick for tonight, Married at First Sight. Based on the hit Danish show, it’s an extreme social experiment following six people who are looking for a life-long partnership as they agree to a (crazy?) proposal: getting legally married the moment they first meet. Four specialists — sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; spiritualist, Greg Epstein; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; and sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz — will create what they believe are three perfect couples, based on scientific matchmaking. The couples will never meet or know each other until they walk down the aisle and see each other face to face, for the first time, when they get married. Each episode will follow the classic lifestyle stories of newlyweds — from the honeymoon, to early nesting, to other relatable events of married life. After several weeks together, each couple must make a decision: do they remain together or decide to separate?
This show seems insane and a recipe for a messy disaster (both in their lives and on our TVs), but I can’t help but want to watch. Color me intrigued. *shrug* Before tonight’s premiere, there’s a one-hour casting special.
On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Matchmaking,” a team of relationship experts is tasked with creating three ideal couples from a group of six singles, and once the matches are made, the couples must prepare for their weddings without knowing anything about the person they are going to marry.
See the start of this crazy relationship ride tonight on FYI at 8/7c for the special and 9/8c for the premiere.
