reality blurred is three years old today.
Today is reality blurred: the reality TV weblog‘s third birthday. The site officially debuted on July 9, 2000, although a few posts were made before that day.

As the first central location for reality TV news, it’s been updated nearly every weekday (sometimes twice a day) for the past 156 weeks or so, which makes this post number 2,681. That’s a lot of summary paragraphs and probably well over 5,000 links. Holy crap. Anyway, thanks to all of you who’ve donated to the cause over the past three years, but mostly, thanks for reading, especially those of you who’ve been here since the summer of 2000. Andy.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
