Excellent Entertainment
28 May 2016 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I have watched many episodes and I think the format is refreshing and bold. I only wish that the teasers and trailers could be taken out (applies to most shows actually) because I have already tuned in so I do not need to waste a minute telling me what's coming next! Nor do I need to see a snippet synopsis of next weeks episode (who do they think I am? American or something? with a short attention span ?). The shows producers have taken time and trouble to match the interests of the couples but sometimes I think this takes some of the quirkiness away from the encounters. Since most "dates" eventually lead to no further meetings it is fascinating to watch how people deal with their obvious dislike and disinterest in the other person. All the participants have come across as being genuine and only one person has impolitely left suddenly at the last interview. I do not understand the reviewer who questioned why some of the participants repeatedly come back. These people want to find a mate with whom they can settle down with for the rest of their lives. Questioning their reasoning is for another show. My admiration goes out to those who constantly put themselves in the firing line for rejection and a massive plus must be the anticipation of the next date and who you shall meet. A great show and well worth a watch. 10/10.
