Dating in the Dark Australia, Tuesday, April 24.
It is all a bit prurient. Dating in the Dark Australia has three guys move into one wing of a mansion and three girls move into another. They then go on ”dates” in a darkened room full of night-vision cameras. They are eventually given a brief glimpse of the person they fancy most and have to decide whether, now having seen them, they still fancy them. Is it a noble scientific endeavour? Hardly – the focus is very much on all the blind snogging and groping that our exhibitionists happily perform for the cameras. Other than that, it is about as interesting as any other dating show. Which is to say not very.
