  1. I dips me lid to the team on MAFS, it is super entertaining. I know, it’s horrid, exploitative rubbish, but I can’t take my eyes off it. Last night I even found myself wiping away tears (when the dad made his emotional speech). And the structure works so well with the ad breaks. Great casting, brilliant cutting, perfect art direction etc etc. Guilty pleasure.

    1. It really is good this year. Super-tight editing, pared-back interesting casting, and no obligatory roll out of every moment of every couple’s wedding, just the pertinent ones. I normally fastforward through chunks of the early episodes, but am just watching with interest, and also teared up during Brett’s dad’s speech.
