Love is Blind?
- Love is blind will come up with season 2 of its own
- Netflix’s reality show is in cross hairs with feminists all across
- The producers need to decide what message they are trying to give out.
Love is really bonkers and blind
The coming-of-age reality show deals with the matters of love but there’s a twist. The contestants interact with each other from individual ponds on either side of a thin wall. Yep, they cannot see each other. It is in one episode that many couples decide that they connect emotionally on a deeper level.
You heard it right. What follows is a proposal. (Again, without ever laying eyes on each other). And then the engaged couples get to spend a vacation at a private resort where they decide if they’re compatible enough to end up getting married by the end of next 40 days. Say what!
Quarantine against Coronavirus gets spicy and dramatic
Honestly? It was only because I was in quarantine that I went ahead exploring this new reality TV show on Netflix. I wasn’t really prepared to see what I saw. I mean, of course, my opinion might be different from yours but then again, I’d really like to know about yours.
Anyway, it kind of resonated with the whole idea of quarantine during these tough times because of Coronavirus.Why, you ask? Well, you get your soulmate without ever going out of the four walls of your home, isn’t it? You get your chance at boosting your burgeoning relationship without coming in any physical contact. Damn you, Coronavirus.
Will the next season be just as popular? We think not.
Ha! Jokes aside, the whole concept of the show is new but comes with ample flaws. For starters, marriage is not something you just go for without knowing the person deeply. 40 days? Are you kidding me? Love is Blind treats marriage as a deadline instead of respecting its sanctity and meaning. The contestants are merely looking to find a companion for 40 days. Feminists all around the world are in crosshairs with the show.
The fact they men are discussing among themselves about which women contestant would make a “good wife” displays something fundamentally wrong with the show. It goes on to show that dating is merely a process for selection and that marriage is what defines a person in a society that they’re a part of.
Also, did you notice that all the contestants in the show are incredibly good looking? In a show that tries to propagate blind attraction, all the contestants are already too good to look at. And might I add, their conversations in every setting are monotonous and sometimes pretty annoying.
Make up your mind y’all
Alright, so the show tries to tell that soulmates are based on deep emotional connections that have nothing to do with the shallow concept of physical appearances being crucial. And again, in the very next episode, it sexualises couples and their relationships while they spend time to decide if saying “I Do” is in the cards.
The producers should rather stick to the fundamental concept of the show or maybe give some substance to it. If the next season is no different, I don’t think people will have the appetite to take in more such obnoxious drama.
