"The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it," said Oscar Wilde and I'm pleased to say that having given in to the compulsion to watch the first episode of the Big & Tall reality dating show "More to Love" I didn't watch the second. My review of episode one, though, was picked up by Alternet so if you missed it the first time, you can check it out here: "Is there really 'More to Love' about the New Reality Dating Show Featuring Larger Women?" My attention may have wandered from the screen, but - and I believe it was Celine Dion who sang this - my bitching will go on.
If you do check in with alternet today have a look at Tara Lohan's eye-opening piece "The Cove: Japan has a Dark Secret it Hopes the World will Never See" about a new documentary on dolphin hunting in Japan. Ric O'Barry, the world famous dolphin trainer who worked on Flipper is now working to free the animals and is the center of this "thriller" as Lohan calls it. If you click on the link you can see a trailer - it looks every bit as suspenseful as whatever the next Matt Damon flick is going to be.
Since it's a documentary you know it probably won't get as big an audience as, say, "Wife Swap." Sigh. I know it doesn't make any sense, but people don't like too much reality in their reality.
