It’s called Conveyor Belt Of Love. And why is it awesome? There are far too many reasons. Far too many reasons.
It airs on ABC, the network that’s trying to be catnip for the ladies. And they’ve hit a goddamn home-run. They sit women in front of a conveyor belt of single men, where they get to judge them in sixty seconds, and decide who they want to go on magical dates with. What have I learned? Looks are very important to women. As in, there was only one person who was picked that was not especially good-looking. Also, not being crazy. But I’m very happy that the stereotype of crazy Asian ladies is finally making its way to prime-time.
Highlights? Keiko, the crazy lady, went nuts over a man that was completely naked, save for a speedo, and clutching a dog. That was it for her. That’s all she wrote. Rejected? Men doing magic tricks, playing the accordion, and doing impressions, only to be dismissed instantly. Ladies don’t love the accordion. Which changes my future plans to learn an instrument.
You can catch the first episode over at Hulu. One of the contestants, Jen, starred in the documentary Confessions of a Superhero, which you can also catch on Hulu.
