Is anyone else watching this series on Bravo? Basically Newlyweds follows the first year of matrimony of four different couples. Sounds kind of fun, and it is as times, but it seems like they purposefully chose irritating people to film.
Couple 1: Kathryn and John
I cannot stand greedy people. Kathryn is all right, but every sentence out of her husband’s mouth is about money. Did they just get married so he could get a check from everyone he knows and then judge them on how much they spent?
Couple 2: Kim and Alaska
Wow. Kim says she comes from Alaska’s rib so she should be subservient to the man in the relationship. Is it 1913 or 2013? I respect their religious views, but not when it’s used to create a master/slave relationship.
Couple 3: Tina and Tarz
Half of the drama is about Tina’s Indian father not approving of Aryan Tarz. He never will, there’s not much to happen here. Also, if Tarz is asked what’s more important, having a kid or work, and he honestly doesn’t know, then that probably means work.
Couple 4: Jeff and Blair
Just way too cutesy. They seem great and all, but I’ve never gotten going on and on and on about someone being the moon and stars and whatever. We get it, you love each other, you got married, now you’re going to fight for the rest of the season.
This is a cynical Elliot Arthur Cross signing off.
