You guys, I am hating this show. Initially I thought recapping this show would be hilarious and I’d be laughing my ass off at all the stupidity. However, it’s really depressing if you think about it. We have five couples (four if you don’t count Too Short and his friend with benefits) who are in disfunctional and unhealthy relationships. If wasn’t for your hilarious feedback after every minicap and recap, I dont know how I would be able to go on.
I will say this, after every show I give my husband a kiss and say: Thank you for not being a completely self-absorbed piece of crap. You’re awesome! Then he cooks me dinner and does the laundry. We have a system, it works for us!
The show opens with the Dr. Berman voiceover: “Let’s face it, no relationship is perfect. They all have their problems, but for the four couples who have just come into this relationship center, they are dealing with major issues that are tearing them apart. But instead of looking at their own issues, they immediately turn on one another.”
Dear Dr. Berman, your stupid show cast this ridiculous excuse for a couple – what did you think would happen? They would be ECSTATIC to have an underage girl who is pedophile-bait traipse around, demeaning their own relationships just by existing? And let’s be clear, these two antagonized the situation – they stirred the pot and started the problems and then played victim. SHUT UP DR. PHIL! You suck.
The show returns in the middle of Doug’s confrontation with Nik. Which Nik is brilliantly laughing off as Doug threatens that “you and I are going down.” I have no idea what this means, unless they are in prison and then I am grossed out.
Clearly, Nik is overcome with fear at Doug’s threats
Nik interviews that Doug is mindfucking him right now, and I have to giggle at that. He is giving him WAAAAY to much credit. And also, ew.
Doug begrudgingly leaves after his desperate grasp for more cameratime fades as quickly as Nik’s smile. On his way out, Doug keeps repeating that everyone calls him a child molester (true) and says that Nik gives him the creeps (ironic).
Doug, in the most condescending voice imaginable, interviews that he was hoping to come into a non-judgmental environment, which causes me to laugh my ass off.
I fall in love with the producers a little bit, as they subtly highlight the absurdity of the situation of these two even being in the house, by airing Child Bride’s interview about how since she is technically a child (despite that mini-skirt’s proclamation otherwise, she’s just misunderstood), and due to Child Labor Laws in the State of California, she can only work/attend therapy/stay the house for six hours a day.
OMG, Life is so haaaard being an attention seeking underage creepshow!
She says it’s just one more thing that makes life super hard, due to the age difference. I say she’s secretly thrilled not to be in bed with him and gets a break from his mouth breathing.
