Polyamory married and dating episode guide
And unless it portrayed poly folks in a simply awful light, I think that any amount of increased awareness is a meaningful thing.Of course, there’s always a disparity between what’s accurate and what makes for good TV.
But all joking (mostly) aside, I present a list of my likes and dislikes about the show, in no particular order. The entire cast is white, able-bodied, cisgendered, thin and conventionally attractive. ) but no lesbians or gay/bi men, and everyone adheres pretty closely to gender norms as far as their appearances are concerned.It’s not exactly shocking that the show would be cast this way, especially with regard to the attractiveness of the participants.But I still reserve the right to complain about it.Even the poly potluck on the show included pretty much only gorgeous people as far as I could tell; I wonder if there were more normal looking humans present who just didn’t get camera time, or if there’s just some superspecies of genetically superior polyfolk in California.But just as a head’s up, I’m condensing my thoughts on all 7 episodes into one post here, and I’m not going to spend my time doing a recap on every episode, so bear with me if it’s a little jumbled.I do recommend checking out the show for yourself if you haven’t already, both because it is worth watching and because it will probably make my rambling here seem a lot more coherent.
To offer a bit of a summary before I move on to some of the finer points, though, overall I have to say this show is a good thing.
I don’t know what the ratings were like, but I can only imagine that at least a reasonable number of people now know that polyamorous relationships exist thanks to the show.
The new SHOWTIME docu-series, POLYAMORY: MARRIED AND DATING, exploring alternative relationship structures.
Polyamory or “poly” as it is often referred to, is practiced by couples who believe that they can also have deep, committed, long-term and loving relationships with people other than their spouses.
Recently, I finally got around to watching all 7 episodes of season 1 of Polyamory: Married and Dating, Showtime’s polyamory reality show.
Given that this show is (potentially) pretty huge with regard to public perception and awareness of poly relationships, I think it’s worth a blog post.
