"The Family - Ep. 2"
Interesting show, but it's starting to look contrived. After the first challenge, which was riding polo donkeys (not horses, donkeys), Dawn Marie refuses to eat hamburger (hamburger!) of all things, saying it was a "donkey burger". Pul-eeeze!

The polo challenge WAS funny, but the casino challenge was rather dumb. Melissa lost, but got to choose her opponent going up before The Trustees... wow, she picked Dawn Marie! Stunning! (/sarcasm)

Speaking of sarcasm, there IS just a hint of the playful sarcasm that made "Joe Millionaire" such fun to watch, but it isn't quite as obvious or as much fun. The lessons on manners (that almost no one attends), and all the fancy trappings (and French food) contrasts with the clothing choices of the participants and their loudness and (sometimes) uncouthness.

An attempt to introduce l'amour (sorry if that makes Superman's head explode!) into the show, via the scorching hot Personal Trainer, didn't really ignite the show itself.

Melissa lost in the eyes of the judges, so she had to give up her medal.

LAST EDITED ON 03-12-03 AT 01:45 PM (EST)

Did anyone notice, from the previews, that it appears the Anthony is next to go? I think he will face a woman. Wish I had taped the previews.

Unlike Survivor and some of the other reality shows, this one doesn't try to hide much. Based on the editting of the first two weeks, it's going to be rather easy to guess the chosen two pretty early in the show. Last week we see a lot of Mike, this week a lot of Dawn Marie. I agree, Katem, that Anthony is up next week and I get the feeling he could be up against Mommie Dearest - Aunt Donna herself.

Dawg, that's Melinda, not Melissa. Show is really grabbing your attention, huh?

Oops, sorry... actually I was dating a woman named Melinda a few months ago... probably just me blocking out the name in my mind...

I agree that they're not approaching this show with any concept of spoiling or misdirection. The only thing I see that might be a problem is that they may show a preview for "next week" that is in reality several weeks away.

And Aunt Donna is certainly getting the "bad girl" image... "I don't want so-and-so to get the money because he might not share it with me!"...

Their editing is working. I can't stand Aunt Donna. Please let her be booted or lose her pin or whatever they call it.

I am loving George Hamilton in this though.

3. "10 reasons this show is secretly good"
10. It is funny because it is not my family.
9. The social secretary cracks me up with his Phelix Unger act.
8. The underdog seems to be winning every week.
7. George Hamilton is the perfect host due to his sarcasm, mellow sadism, and arrogance. (Could he have been any more obviously bored during donkey polo?)
6. The competitions encourage them to stab each other in the back and create conflict.
5. Palm Beach is beautiful.
4. The New York, Italian-American stereotype, reinforced by the use of the Godfather font in the title.
3. Bringing in the fitness vixen to showcase what dogs men can be.
2. They show the discussion and reasoning behind the Board of Trustees' decisions.

1. Two words . . . Dawn Marie.

So.....does this mean you are rooting for Dawn Marie to go the distance?

I missed the second episode, dang it. But from the very first episode, I saw that Mike the polite young man and Dawn Marie the victim seemed to garner the most sympathy in editting.

Woops... this was on last night? Ah well... any idea if the executed people still get to play in the games (if the answer is no, I'll try and go back and dig some vidcaps from the big preview from the end of Ep1)

Robert (executed in Ep. 1) was allowed to play for reward in the first challenge (and he was part of the winning team), but he was not allowed to play in the last challenge (that names the loser(s)).

I'm looking forward to your vidcaps, because I think at least some of the big preview at the end of Ep. 1 contained footage for episodes beyond Ep. 2.

Didn't both the previews from Ep 1 & Ep 2 contain footage of George Hamilton being run over by a golf cart? I wonder when that takes place. It does prove that the previews contain future footage.

10. "RE: The Family - Ep. 2"
Last night was the first time I actually disliked Dawn Marie, with that whole "donkey burger" business. It made her look like an idiot. Aside from that, I like Dawn Marie and Cousin Mike the best, or should I say that they don't annoy me as much as the others do. Aunt.Donna.must.go. I can't stand that woman.

I think Dawn Marie has been watching too much "Fear Factor."
