When MTV aired the movie as a prequel to the initial airing of the show, I was pretty interested.
Then I watched a later episode and my suspicions began to grow.
How many times do you have to watch an average guy duped into believing that a super hot blonde girl is on the other end of that Ethernet connection typing for hours, pouring out his feelings and deepest emotions? The only music-related thing MTV does now is flash up the song that is playing at the bottom of the screen. I have to hand it to Schulman though; he has made a name for himself.
And that’s not an easy thing to do in a world that lets a show like Jersey Shore get renewed for six seasons.
MTV’s weirdly addicting reality show about people trying to find love online while hiding their real identities by using fake profiles. In our opinion, catfish stories are lose-lose situations.
Finding out that the person you’ve been spending countless hours sharing pieces of your life with isn’t who they claimed to be can be devastating.
I predict that the stories will become more and more outlandish as the show gains popularity.
This will turn in to another Teen Mom: people trying to get involved in online relationships because they could be on MTV.
The movie became very personal when he used himself to show that fake Facebook profiles are a very real thing.And the reason behind their deception can usually be found in their own insecurities.Can you imagine being so uncomfortable in your own skin that you think you have to pretend to be someone else?Catfish has the potential to be very entertaining, and most critics seem to agree.Since Manti Te’o is in the news for being involved in a Catfish-like scandal only brings more sensationalism to the show.
