I get sucked in every season, I love the drama...I love the weekly snippets of love and hate building into a massive polygamy festival on national television...
but at the end of the season--that last episode is simply too much. It really makes me think reality shows have gone too far. (well, that and the whole Swan thing, but at least no one was getting hurt--except for the surgeries, broken bones, and facial reconstructions---but I digress).
What I meant to say is that these poor girls literally get their hearts broken, not to mention that it's on NATIONAL television! I know they "signed up for it"--but it's the devil in disguise.
(in my best commercial voice) Come to the show, take a 1 in 25 (possibly 27) chance of getting "picked", um...that is if you --(and only YOU) -- can make this polygamist* fall in love with you in a fairytale setting within six weeks.
I didn't like seeing the girl get hurt. I cried. I thought the ending was stupid. And I'm sure I'll tune in Spring 2007 to watch the next season.
*if you don't like the term "polygamist" then insert the word "adulterer", because that's what he is! Forming these intimate relationships with several different women at the same time...leading them ALL to believe they are the one -- (and only ONE) -- for him.
