Kind of boring despite all of the hype.
27 February 2003 | by perniSee all my reviews

When I first heard about this crazy new reality show, I thought it was a pretty interesting premise. Unfortunately, most of the episodes were just boring and tedious, with multiple flashbacks to past dates that dragged on forever. Fox seriously needs to be smacked upside the head for making its audience suffer so much. I mean, come on, did we really need a 2-HOUR finale? That's stretching my attention span a bit. I did tune in for the last 30 minutes or so of the finale, but in the end the big moment everyone was waiting for (when the girl finds out about her Joe's true past), was a huge bust. She just sat there, smiling, not doing a thing. Then the final scene in the ballroom felt genuinely staged, with false suspense created as we waited to see if the lovely lady would show up after all. She did, of course, and recited a speech only Hollywood executives could think was believeable. Fox tried to get one more punch in with The Aftermath, a bonus episode that told us what happened later. I didn't tune in for this one, though, becuase I did not want to be tricked into watching another snore-fest hour. And why did they call it The Aftermath? That sounds like something MSNBC would use to describe the effects of a hurricane or earthquake. It's not like Joe killed the girls one by one. Now with everything said and done, Fox is prepping a new gimmicky show called Married by America. Something tells me I won't be watching that one, as it sounds even more loathsome and flash-in-the-pan. As for the possibility of a Joe Millionaire 2, I roll my eyes at the idea. Why would anyone want to watch this premise all over again? They would have to put something really new and clever into the mix to get me to come back. Personally, I like Saturday Night Live's ideas: Joe Rapist, Joe Woman, etc. Hee hee...1/4
