This was just before the tv show aired, so I got the back story just in time. Have any of you seen it? If you've seen the tv show, then you know how the documentary turns out (cause it's in the credits). But if you've seen neither, watch Catfish the film immediately.
I'm guessing that many of you already watch the show. I must confess that I'm addicted. Which is kinda silly, since it pretty much turns out the same way every time. And yet still, I find myself experiencing a kind of shock-n-awe at the end of each episode. WHO ARE THESE CRAZIES??? I have some lingering questions, and would love your opinions & insight:
1. Who "dates" someone online for 2+ years without meeting him/her? Have you ever done this? Known anyone who has? Isn't it fishy when your love interest can't even so much as skype?
2. When Nev swoops in and solves the mystery, why do the perpetrators of this weird world show up and reveal themselves? That gets me every time. Somehow, they all magically agree to meet up when Nev calls, and the truth of the situation comes to light. But isn't that strange/unrealistic? One would think that they'd refuse, given that they're about to be humiliated on national tv. I need to get to the bottom of this.
Are you as into Catfish as I am?
