    I'm not generally one for judging shows I haven't seen but I think its safe to say RTE have hit a low with this. The concept sounds tired and jaded, the trailer is headwrecking and as for the title.........why? Just why?

    I haven't seen it either but just googled it.

    CRINGE.

    On a side note: why on earth do kids who are in their early 20's esp. the second girl on this above trailer need anyone to help them to find a date? Aren't they in college/mixing with young people, hanging out with mates, going to clubs/bars etc...normal young stuff? What's this infatuation with young kids being on Tinder and such? Other than they feel it's the 'done' thing now and fear of missing out?

    I too haven't seen it, and I didn't think it was much use either

    I also didn't see it and I thought it was the best thing since the Sopranos.

    I saw a bit of it on Gogglebox. I'd say it's a nightmare. Basically one's desperate to get on TV

    Inadvertedly caught a bit of this a week or so ago. Awful muck but the worst thing of all is that horrible title, urgh!

    Its all about the parents trying to prove how trendy they are. Most of the contestants don`t seem to want to be there
    Awful stuff

    Jaysus this is bad....this is bad..


    But interesting that one of the mothers tonight is the owner of the matchmaker dating agency. Hear her on the radio. Why does he need to go on tv for this?

    There is a "celeb" version starting next Wednesday on RTE 2 at 9.30pm

    Tragic.

    I can't believe they actually commissioned further episodes. I've watched it a couple of times just to see how terrible it is.
