Married but dating
I’d better begin by saying that I don’t own a television set, not even for watching movies and I haven’t had cable service for nearly twenty years.As you may have guessed, this means that I don’t watch a lot of television, cable or otherwise.Since poly-identified people are still a tiny minority, this show badly needs the Jen character to provide someone the rest of the world can relate to in the midst of all these hedonists.It will be interesting to see how the show approaches the dynamics with the “most reluctant” member of the family.Believe it or not, this is a fairly common question.
Both families struggle a bit with jealousy and inclusion, both families are happy to jump into bed, cameras and all, and both families feature strongly bisexual women.
Nevertheless, I have to confess that I’m not an informed consumer or producer.
So it is with great audacity that I dare to venture an opinion about Showtime’s new polyamory reality show.
With all those qualifiers in place, I’ll say that is a far better portrayal of polyamory than I feared and not so good as I had hoped, judging from the first episode, which aired July 12. The show flips back and forth between two poly families, one in Riverside, California and one in San Diego.
The Riverside group, a young and beautiful MFF triad, seem a little more like regular folks than the San Diego group.
