The Leader (Tasman) - - FRONT PAGE -

Just when you thought re­al­ity TV was a spent force in this coun­try, along comes Mar­ried at First Sight.

NZ Idol is long gone. Danc­ing With The Stars, or, more ac­cu­rately, Danc­ing with the Mi­nor Celebri­ties Who, As Luck Would Have It, Just Hap­pen To Be Avail­able, has flamed out.

The Block is over for an­other tor­tur­ous sea­son and MKR hasn’t re­ally come up to the boil. Re­ally it just seems to be a gi­ant ex­cuse for the con­tes­tants to press each other’s faces against the grill.

But now we have MAFS we can all breathe a sigh of re­lief.

The start is where it all looks al­most rosy. But the view­ers have been quick to spot the holes, which have started to widen.

Will any of these re­la­tion­ships turn into a life­time of com­mit­ment? No. Do we want them to? Not re­ally. In fact the big­ger the im­plo­sion the bet­ter.

I per­son­ally would like to see a happy end­ing for Fluffy but I can’t stop my­self wav­ing at the TV and yelling ‘‘Fluffy, look up. The bridge, it’s washed out. You’re rac­ing to­wards it.’’

Good luck Fluffy.
