Not guilty re Married etc.

Watched Portillo, however, for an equal amount of crap. He repeated the myth that it is 570 miles from Sydney to Broken Hill. We have seen this error on another of these rubbish 'rail' shows recently. We all know that it is 699 miles from Sydney to Broken Hill.


Sick of Portillo and Grif so called rail shows which seem to do little but lecture on the treatment of Aboriginals .............

At first sight, few would knock that back. Certainly a test drive would be a high priority, although I think it would be like hoping into bed with a King Cobra, however if you are still alive in the AM it will be worth it.

I've see a few episodes randomly on TV here which means they are usually US episodes. The stats in wiki are however interesting on how many do form a successful long-term relationship, kids etc which goes to show sometimes consented arranged marriages actually work.

Recently the Australian "single wives" series came on air here. I saw 2-3 episodes, but not the last. I can see why some women are single into their late 30's. The former arranged marriage Indian heritage chick clearly shows no "practice runs" at dating before her parents pimped her off to the highest bidder in a failed marriage. She seems nice enough and certainly a full package of brains and looks, but needed to learn a few social skills as shown to her before guys would show a more serious interest.

RTT you have joined my list of unexpected watchers of these shows.

You are joining one of the most serious professors that I know and the accreditation manager for a large industrial rail user......

I wonder who I will add to this list next?

Brian, last time I checked, you supply the Railpage website, so in theory, it is your website, so your rules, thus you get to decide Laughing

MAFS I can easily miss and as I said I've seen maybe 3-4 episodes in 2 years channel surfing.

"Single Wives" was a bit different, found by accident but kept watching and a bit interesting. If it was guys, not sure I'd be interested.

However, "Naked and Afraid" and especially "Naked and Afraid XL" this is a family must watch. I have to rip it off Pirate Bay as no other way to get it here. Yes not a love show, but I prefer the survival shows over love any day and survival naked is pretty hard core.

I've heard and seen snippets of on Youtube a German dating shop where they meet for the first time on an island naked and then date next day clothed.

Now if you really want to see an interesting naked show. There is a British one where they have 5 or so of one sex hidden behind a screen and they slowly raise from bottom up while a member of the opposite or in some cases non-opposite sex removes various people at different stages by their legs, pubic area, tummy, breasts/chests long before they get to their head. Then when they meet the final one, some time later they are both naked.

Yes! I have seen this one.  It is on, of all things, Stan, the Channel 9 streaming service. Ive never seen so much skin since sneaking out and watching Sex/Life (also a Ch9 show IIRC) as a young teen....

The funnier part is sometimes the section at the end where they check in on them after a couple of months.  Sometimes the interaction between the two is incredibly uncomfortable.  There was this one guy, massively overconfident, and his reaction to being blocked by the girl he picked was just gold.  Also in that episode, one of the ones that he didnt pick commented that she 'dodged a bullet with that one'. Some are like a train wreck in progress!

It's just turned into a trashy mess.

Honestly I don't like feeding stupid but what the hell, let them go for it.

In the UAE its legal for Muslim men to have up to 4 wives, but you are hard up finding one that has even two. Certainly none of the people I know at work apart from maybe one has even two and if you ask the others will they get two they just roll their eyes. My boss and peers are mostly local women and they joke about it knowing that is not easy on the guys. Traditionally it comes from an era when if the husband died who would look after the wife, so usually his brother or cousin would marry her. Note: marry in this context does not mean they have a sexual relationship and his first wife must approve and by Islamic law he has to treat them equally. Well thats the rules at least.

Back to Utah, there was a TV series on a polygamy village in the desert. From teh kids point of view it looked like they have a great upbringing. However at the adult level, like the arabs have found, bringing two or more women into one house brings drama, lots of drama and it doesn't always work out. Some women get on, others not so much.

This Hailey is quite a piece of work.  Do you think she is wrong or did her man over react when talking about his earning capacity?

This is another of those TV programs loosely referred to as "Reality TV" when, in fact, there's nothing remotely approaching reality in any of them.

Yeah I understand the historic reason for it but would think the tension wouldn't be conducive to a happy house.

There is an example in a futuristic Sci-Fi - The Expanse - where a minor group of 8 unseen characters live in a marriage.  Ostensibly it was to get around land ownership rights through.
