    Like NBC's faux-reality show Siberia, Surviving the In-Laws feels too much like a standard issue reality show when it's not, especially because it's also not trying to be a satirical send-up of the format (like Yahoo's Bachelor-parody web series Burning Love). Its impression is ultimately a muddled one.

    The basics of the story are given interview-style, with the most telegenic parts recreated in sparse scenes. The presentations are peppered with enmity from both directions.

    For the most part, the actors chosen do a reasonably laudable job of looking real, but there are also pregnant pauses and exaggerated reaction shots where they hit the inaudible rim shots a bit too hard.
