Do you watch Take Me Out? Why / why not?
Like many TV shows I can appreciate that it's flawed ("tripe", my dad would say), I would not go out of my way to watch it but if it's on the TV and not much else is on, I can still kind of enjoy it. I'm not someone who believes that everything we watch or read has to serve some educational or cultural purpose, sometimes a little mindless light entertainment is just what I need and I don't think it's such a great harm.
In terms of what I perceive as flaws with this particular show:
- Putting some poor guy on stage in front of all these women to be picked apart and "no lighty-ed" for his looks, or the fact that he is close with his mum, or that he has an unusual hobby.
- It's SO cheesy.
- My heart dies at the final bit where the guy has to turn off the lights of the girls he is not interested in and sometimes the girls are so desperate that they're blocking the guy from reaching their light button. Owchhh.
