Catfish The Series To Air On ABC2 It Might Give Insight In How It Happened To Casey Donovan.
ABC2 continues its love affair with reality TV shows (this is not a negative thing) with news it will start screening the MTV show Catfish.
Catfishing is when a person in a relationship online with a person who is not who they say they are. The series follows the journey of some of these people to find out who is actually at the other end of the computer and also examines the motives behind these hoaxes.
It is not as uncommon as we think and Casey Donovan revealed in her recent memoir that she herself had been in a six year online relationship with a man that turned out to be a woman. In fact she was engaged to them! People believe what they want to believe.
It is one of those shows which is compulsive viewing and it has you flipping between saying “You can’t be serious” to having empathy to the protagonists involved.
Even though Catfish the series has been revealed to have some producer interference. The Catfish investigators Nev Shulman and Max Joseph do have to investigate and have to follow the clues to get an outcome. The series started after Shulman was himself catfished and he did a documentary about it. By the way both Shulman and Joseph are easy on the eye.
Series one of the show is on ABC2 starting Friday June 13 at 8.30pm. Highly recommended.
