So in Ireland there's this TV show called Take Me Out, in which one guy gets his pick from 30 potential women to go on a date with. He describes himself, and if they're not interested they turn their little podium light off, and when he's done describing himself he picks of the remaining girls. Awkwardness and sexism ensue.
There are many, many things I miss about Ireland, but Irish reality TV is absolutely not one of those things. I think I watched one episode and walked away deeply relieved that we don't do that nonsense in America.
So imagine my woe when my little sister turned on the TV tonight and said "IT'S THAT AWESOME IRISH SHOW." Yes, we now have Take Me Out here in my country. It followed me. I am so sad.
