MAFS

Recommended Posts

One of the real issues I have with holidays is watching the tv with the missus ( my penance). I am watching “Married at first sight”. For f@ck sake, I have not been so sick with absolute depression watching this. I cannot and will not understand why people watch this ABOSOLUTE SHIT. The only minute aspect of this would be a phsycology paper on fwits and losers. I am really concerned with my missus and daughter that watch AND ENJOY this dribble.

At least my wife is of the same opinion as me. "Reality TV is crap!". We also have not seen a total of more than 5 minutes of this series, and that would be a combined total as we flick across the channels for the past few weeks since it started. 

 

I really don't know why these types of shows, and the MKR etc shows rate so well. Is there that little else to do in the world? Generally, I would rather come into the study, log on to Trannies and have a couple of scotches.

I have had 6 beers, a can of bourbon and a bottle of red. This shit is totally fu@ked.  

My missus just asked what I am typing. Oh, problem. Just got the cold shoulder. Oops.

The funny thing is, I am up in Port with my missus and son. My daughter is also here with a mfriend and they are watching it too. 

I cannot fathom that this is the “event of my life”.

Mick, I don’t watch it either, but I can tell you your mate Nasser on MAFS used to be a tri dude with the Brats. I funnily enough remember him vaguely. 

A friend of mine picked this out after about 3 weeks in.

Batchelor in paradise starts Sunday!

Every time I see an ad for MAFS, or see them tell their family what they're doing and they get all up in arms, I scream at the tv, "they're not actually getting married!"

Agree Ironnerd, although I am tempted to watch the Honey Badger on the Batchelor next series, think his one liners might be worth it if they don't censor him too much

My daughter was watching it but I think even she has had enough, and I assume she would be in their target demographic. 

We now have a ratings box at home, so Ive told the kids they cant watch any reality TV in case it makes the ratings people think its popular. :lol:

I guess it is better than how the Bachelor started in the USA with a "rich dude" and 25 gold diggers...

It's voyeurism. And gossip. And drama. The producers of these shows are low life scum who will stoop to anything to get ratings. And the presence of so called experts is a thinly veiled attempt to give the whole thing some credibility.

By the look of her I think someone already has :wallbash:

Tracy's new partner is a total flog. Why is he getting all fired up an aggressive? He knew she had been banging Dean & on holidays around Aus with him for the last 6 weeks.

I like how Dean twisted it in to "sexting pic" rather than a "fk you buddy this is the bod & lingerie the new fella is getting text" 

Little man from Perth would get destroyed if he stepped up against Dean. 

Classic little man with some money from FIFO work WA flog, I'm surprised he didn't wear HI-VIS on the show.

I've never watched this show, but if I did I'd reckon Deano got set up. Sure he messed up, but Tracey should have let him go then and there.  Instead she keeps going, being as nice as pie and leading him on so Deano falls in love with her and, when she has him right when she wants him, -BAMMM!!! it's revenge time.  What a nasty pastie - Davina's shenanigans were very lightweight in comparison.

About a week ago when she decided to leave him, she said that that was exactly what she was doing - continually saying "stay" to his leave to punish him for the Davina shit.  Everyone thought it was "choice" (in the words of Ferris Bueller).  All I've read about the whole show is how Dean's the man's man, and how he's running the whole shebang with him and her and the boss of everything, and then she flicks it around and shows him he's been owned the whole time.

Classic reality tv stuff....... if you like that stuff.

I grudgingly went to see Ed Sheeran at Etihad and was all ready to be bored shirtless by a folksy ballad singer... 

Bug -ger me if it wasn't one the best and most entertaining performances I've even seen.  This guy is awesome. :)

Loved Bliss and Eso the opening act but second act Missy Higgins did fulfill my original expectations many times over.... :(

Ok really tv peeps....

Now that MAFS is done my Mrs needs something else to replace it with.  She watched it late at night before the Kardashians so something that's available on catchup, or Netflix or something!  She watched all the available RPA's, One Born Every Minute, and 24 Hours In Emergency's.

Anything else with a gander for her?

Before we had a term for it, what was the first Reality Show you can remember watching?

 I'm not sure if the '7UP' series from the UK counts but I reckon the first one as we know we know it for me would have been 'Sylvannia Waters'.

I remember Sylvania Waters. I think it showed you could make television that people would watch without much budget to make it.

Yeah the Donahers. That was some classic stuff. 

I drive through Sylvania Waters once or twice a week so constantly reminded of it.

My in-laws lived at Sylvania Waters at the time.  They didn't tell many people that. Lived next to a large prestige car dealer franchise owner and George Freeman's bagman

I lived in Sylvania Waters at the time and used to see him at the local shops. 

Remember that series The Shire where none of the people actually lived in The shire?  The home used as the Lebanese family's home was just around the corner from the Donahers. The production company rented it for the show.

Interesting developments with Daniel Webb. Did anybody here know he was disappearing from the set of MAFS each fortnight to fly home to visit his local police station as a part of his bail conditions after being charged a couple years ago for his part in a telemarketing fraud scheme. He will be fronting court this week instead of celebrating his new marriage.

I cannot believe this thread came up today. I sat in front of the TV with the missus last night. She looked at MAFS on the screen, I looked at the small spider above it - FOR 45 MINUTES.

Please send me to the dentist.

I'm lucky my wife hates all those reality style shows (not that you could call this reality by a long shot). I don't even have to watch those cooking shows or anything. :)
