I don't know that anyone would watch the show and go - "THAT is what I want, why didn't I think of it before"...(but I could be wrong) - it's not a recruitment video...
Definitely agree that it's good PR.
And while you're right, it's not a recruitment thing, I certainly hope there will be some people out there who see this and go "You know, I've always felt this need to love more than one person too. I need to think long and hard about this concept."
So absolutely this was a good show for provoking thought and discourse!

Just Rob now. That's all. .

I haven't ever even made an attempt to watch it. Reality shows tend to select for people of average to below-average intelligence and maturity. I simply don't find most of that entertaining. I think most people would be disappointed by the daily activities of your average polyamorous person.

Is that a third season? I heard a lot about it when they were making a second one, but there wasn't as much hype this time around. How is it? Which families come back, if any? Are there new ones being introduced?

I watched the entire first season, it was mostly hyperbole and sensationalism from my perspective. It felt more like a show about how non poly people view poly. Not unlike Charlie and the Chocolate Factory being about a kids fantasy about what goes on inside the factory vs. the actual reality of it all.

Default The poly character on Fox's "Utopia" starting Sunday...

... is pretty smart, knows her stuff, and wants to educate about poly. But will she get any chance on a reality show?

She's Dedeker Winston. I've just posted a lot of backstory and inside dope at Polyamory in the News:


For better or worse, she's probably about to become America's poster girl for polyamory.

Keep up with Polyamory in the News!

I'm not a reality show fan but I hope polyamory gets some positive airtime on this one.
Love means never having to say, "Put down that meat cleaver!"
