Critic Reviews

  1. It's trying to be juicy, stupid fun, but it isn't smart enough.
  2. Farmer Wants a Wife feels about as "real" as "The Dukes of Hazzard," suggesting it should be viewed in much the same spirit.

    Farmer Wants a Wife moseyed onto the air last week bearing the best title of any pop-culture commodity of the year to date and, given its standard-issue inanity, a surprising subtextual richness.
  4. This farmer may want a wife but, in the end, the only guarantee is that he gets a reality show.

    How could they be so harsh on critizing this show? The only thing the critics are looking for is another version to the Bachelor or the How could they be so harsh on critizing this show? The only thing the critics are looking for is another version to the Bachelor or the Bachelorette but with all the drama in it. I loved watching 'Farmer Wants A Wife' and never missed an episode because I thought it was funny and that it was more of a REALITY tv show. The Bachelor, the Bachelorette, and all the other dating shows they have on tv have so much drama in it and have ridiculous challenges and the contestants constantly arguing because the wrong words or actions were said to each other. Reality doesn't have all the dramatic experiences that they choreograph into the shows a bit too much. 'Farmer Wants A Wife' was a wonderful, refreshing country twist to a Bachelor show and seemed to just be fun and enjoyable without being so fake. Full Review »
