    Does anybody, besides me, watch these shows?

    Good morning on this, the last weekend of August,

    There are a couple of tv shows we've been watching for a few years now and we find them funny, annoying, entertaining and baffling; sometimes all at the same time and they all centre around marriage.

    One is 90-Day Fiancé, where Americans look for marriage partners overseas. We don't understand American immigration laws (that's where the baffling comes in) but I guess there is a time limit for when the wedding has to take place.

    The other show is Married At First Sight where people who have never met get married, then the show follows them for a while to see how their marriage works, or doesn't work.

    So I ask, does anyone watch these? They are on here early on a Sunday evening, after the dinner-hour news is finished. A fluffy way to end the weekend.

    I can’t believe I’m going to admit this on a public forum but I have actually binge watched every season of 90 Day Fiancé and all it’s spin offs! Married at First Sight is another one I watch. It was interesting when they did the Boston version because the couples went to restaurants that I knew and bought jewelry at my go to store. Toodies Jewlers got a good plug from it and the owner was pleased with the publicity.

    Full disclosure, I watch this show by myself if Tom walks in the room when I’m watching, he turns around and leaves.

    Like you, Donna cannot seem to get enough of these shows. I'll watch an episode or two then settle in here on the computer. Some people will do anything to be on tv.

    No way Jose!

    Paul is very busy hogging the DVRs with John Wayne and WW2 stuff.

    But the other night we were going thru the guide and came across Dr Pimple Popper and OMG, I needed beach for my eyes.

    Since pandemic, we binge watched West Wing, Criminal Minds and now are enjoying Heartland.

    That Dr Pimple Popper is outrageous. It’s definitely not something I can watch. Now, Marrying Millions is another story

    I have watched a few times of the plastic surgery "screw up" show.
    Again, scary stuff.

    Guilty! I have gone down a rabbit hole of reality tv, including 90 day fiancé. I’m not proud.
