The four couples are diverse and engaging individually
The show revolves around four couples at a crossroad and this could have been as interesting as watching a vegetable grow in your garden. However, I find that the couples they hired really made for an entertaining show. They were diverse in maturity level, they were diverse personalities and had a certain level of commitment and goals in mind. Also, the fact that the men as well as the women engage in conversation and we can see how they have each other's back while processing their own thoughts is nice to see. They are having real conversations. One whose honesty I can appreciate is Nicole. Nicole actually adds a difference to the show considering that she acknowledges and was not afraid to say that her love in the relationship is not as deep as the other girls. That is very difficult thing to say, and yet she is not afraid to tell it like it is. Shari is another interesting character in the show, because at the beginning she has you thinking if she is so closed minded will she get to open up and grow? She certainly surprises us as the show continues to grow and we can begin to understand her because Javen is the only man that she has ever known. I also can appreciate the fact that the cast has been very engaging in social media and that also helps shed some perspective into what we are watching. They've done a great job this season with the casting of the couples and singles, I hope that they can have another great season come season 2. Definitely, the success will be in the casting because at this point social media is what fuels the show as their cast is very likable and relatable. The show should look in the future to work a little more on their editing. Nonetheless enjoyable, entertaining, do recommend watching.
