    This show isn't a really bad show, but I can not get myself to give it many points because ultimately it gives a sad example of how picky a lot of people have become. People are taught that nothing but the perfect partner is good enough for them and that you need to feel this magic 'spark' to connect. Even if you hardly know someone. This is what people have been spoon fed for decades.
    When it is dark they often feel a connection, but when ultimate moment in the show comes and the people see their candidate of choice, the final decision is often based on the exterior of the person. He is too young. She is too fat. He misses that manly jawline. She is black-haired.
    The only good thing about this is that those people will hopefully never get any kids and thus remove themselves from the gene-pool.
    Perhaps Darwin wasn't so wrong after all?

    For me, this show is a one-night stand, not a relationship.

    The gimmick is hokey, but beneath it lies a surprisingly untrashy reality show that actually sheds some light on the dating game.

    Dark is an interesting idea with a refreshing lack of bombast and fakery that propels so many reality shows.
