Review this tv show
Dec 1, 2013I hate reality shows! But, "The Governor's Wife" has made itself an exception. I have no idea of how "real" these people actually are, but the impression is that they are all playing a little game of tongue in cheek. The Governor is very likable. Even the young wife is likable. The two older daughters seem a bit faked but they are funny and likable.
Overall, not an earth-shaking show, but a reality show with almost no nastiness and no phony conflict. These people seem to be having fun.… Expand
While Louisianians might feel compelled to tune in just to see what's been going on with Edwards, A&E might want to start looking for their return receipt for this Louisiana purchase.
American television, while not quite as efficient [as waste recyclers in Mumbai shantytowns], also has a rather impressive way of recycling dirt. The Governor’s Wife, a new reality series starting Sunday on A&E, is a case in point.
Louisiana no longer celebrates the entertaining crookedness of its politicians. By trying to build a reality show on the dead ground of a discredited mythology, A&E has combined the worst of both worlds.
