The Marriage Ref -- TV Review


Recommended Posts

Bottom Line: Yellow flag Alias complete series on the play.
When approaching The OC complete series the field of "The Marriage Ref," a show Weeds dvd box set with a Jerry Seinfeld exec producer provenance more highly touted than anything else about it, you'd best come wearing shin guards. Surely there was no good reason to expect that the series -- in which three unrelated celebrities sit in judgment over arguments otherwise-loving Glee dvd box set couples are having, with comic Tom Papa mediating -- would try and cover the Mars/Venus divide in a serious The Vampire Diaries dvd box set way. After all: Seinfeld.

And yet the great silliness damages seasons 1-2 dvd of what's thus far been put on display (a post-Olympics half-hour "sneak peek" on Sunday) seems to indicate Merlin dvd box set
that what might have been a vaguely informative if humorous take on dealing with spousal craziness is simply going to be played for entertainment smallville dvd box set value. Apparently, once television leaves Daypart Oprah, any chance to educate goes right out the window, and by 10 p.m. there's family guy dvd box set nothing left to do but giggle at the idiot box

There are some giggles worth Glee season 1 dvd having, sometimes even from the celebrity guests. The panel is random enough to jolt interest, though the preview threesome of Alec Baldwin, Kelly Ripa and Seinfeld seemed Gossip Girl seasons 1-2 dvd box set to gel only intermittently; later episodes promise family guy dvd box set
Frasier dvd box set combinations like Larry David, Madonna and Ricky Gervais, a trio I'd pay money to watch.

But the real laughs lost dvd box set come from the highly cast couples, which I don't doubt are real but clearly are Made for Television mad men dvd box set. In an odd bit of synergy, both women in the preview presented similar problems: They objected to items their tone-deaf husbands insisted Glee dvd box set on having in the home. In one case, this meant taxidermy of the not-so-beloved family Gossip Girl seasons 1-2 dvd box set pet; in the other, a stripper pole in the bedroom ("No! It's for exercise!" was the feeble defense). Both wives earned big laughs by repeatedly sputtering Glee season 1 dvd their denials; both husbands got full reality Frasier dvd box set checks from the panel. Meanwhile, the usefulness of surprisingly mad men dvd box set stiff Ref Papa seemed to fade with every passing moment.

So, it's inoffensive stuff. You won't learn much, but you'll get a few laughs, and while we tend to expect a bit more depth out of Seinfeld, there's far worse out there. At least this seems to be a show prison break dvd box set where the squabbling pairs actually like each other; there's little of that on primetime reality shows. Whether light fare like this deserves a full hour -- well, that's another story.
