Polyamory married and dating tv show
Nevertheless, I have to confess that I’m not an informed consumer or producer.So it is with great audacity that I dare to venture an opinion about Showtime’s new polyamory reality show.
I’m very happy about it, and would love to be a creative consultant on a polyamory sitcom or movie some day.I’d better begin by saying that I don’t own a television set, not even for watching movies and I haven’t had cable service for nearly twenty years.As you may have guessed, this means that I don’t watch a lot of television, cable or otherwise.We’ve been sighted at the gym, mall, comedy club and even the YMCA when picking my son up from summer camp.I don’t get recognized as often as my girlfriend Jen, but that’s because I don’t leave the house nearly as much, and I get out of my Pajammas even less.It works not just as the freak show that we've come to expect from reality TV, but also on a political level.
The slippery slope anti-equality argument stating that if gays are allowed to marry, then soon we'll have to allow multiple partners to as well, is bullshit not just for side-stepping the issue – if you believe in the fundamental principle of sexual equality, that it doesn't matter what people do in their bedrooms as long as they aren't hurting others, there is no legitimate ethical argument against the kind of configurations you see presented on .
I had fun creating a “top ten” list of how this series changed my life: #10 I now own a TV, subscribe to premium cable, and actually know how to work the DVR.
Prior to doing this show I never actually watched television, much less reality TV and I’m afraid to admit, my mind might have been better off without mindless hours of Jersey Shores, Gigolos and The Kardashians, in this process, I did however, learn there is a big difference between “reality shows” and “docu-series.” Unlike in most reality TV, I was happy to learn that our docu-series was not set up, scripted, or edited radically out of context.
At the very least, those on reality TV are made to sit through marathon interviews picking apart the nuances of their behavior and its motivation.
Never have I seen a situation that naturally fits this format as well as that of Showtime's currently airing .
Ultimately, however this half hour show can only capture a mere snapshot of the complexity of our love lives with 13 minutes per family, per week.
