    The search for love has never seemed more like a lost cause.

    It's awkward, sweet, sincere--and sometimes yawningly dull. [6 Aug 2012, p.37]

    3 rises above the genre's usually tawdry trappings, even if the opening episode is more than a bit static.

    The show is so low-key that it borders on tedium through the hour.

    You can watch the full season on the CBS website! The first honest dating show I've seen. Whoever titled it "3" should be fired, because I really feel like had they given it a meaningful name - like "Real Women, Real Dating" or something - people would have known what it was and checked it out. The three women are so likeable and the nature of the show is so noncompetitive and comfortable. Nothing feels fabricated or overdramatic. Basically, the three women are placed in a house together where they become friends and try to find someone to date seriously out of 100 men. Because there's no host, it feels more like a documentary than a cheesy dating show. The producers don't make caricatures out of the women or their dates, so you really get to know their good sides and bad. What a shame it was canceled so quickly. I attribute that completely to the title. Full Review »
