    Week is about as much a serious social experiment as "Survivor" or "Kid Nation," but the production qualities are strong for a cable reality show and its subjects are fascinating as they react to the new world order

    It's too soon to tell whether this amiable show, which runs for five episodes, will upend those preconceptions, though it's probably not in its interest to do so.

    The men's stewardship of their children proves concerning enough to give you hope that future episodes will find Yemassee transformed into an entertainingly nuts mix of the town from Children of the Corn and the prison on OZ.

    The truth is once you've moved beyond the set-up, the only real moment that counts is the inevitable reunion, when the women return and the men, presumably, tell them just how much they were missed and how indispensable they are.

    The only experiment actually being done here is the ongoing one of determining just how long people will watch this sort of thing. That is an experiment with no end in sight.

    This American version incorporates the redneck humor so beloved in reality TV these days with battle-of-the-sexes cliches that should have been retired in the '70s.

    YUK! This show is so stupid and boring...and an equal opportunity offender. Couldn't even sit through an entire episode. Congratulations, Lifetime, on taking an already low bar and aspiring to rock bottom. Collapse
