Who would have thought someone brokenhearted by a bad internet relationship gone wrong would and could help right the wrongs of many others, and play matchmaker in the process?

Nev is a humanitarian, matchmaker, detective, therapist, and so much more, all rolled into one. And you gotta love Max too. I saw Catfish the Movie about a year ago and when I saw that there was a show on MTV, I rolled my eyes and thought to myself, "really, you're making a TV show out of this? MTV is just never going to be the same."

Actually, though, the TV show is actually pretty good. I love it that Nev is getting addicts and compulsive liars to turn over a new leaf and life. People that have assumed other people's identities for years are coming clean!!! I always thought such people to be mentally insane or lacking or imbalanced or unintelligent to say the least, but most of the time, the people who did that were lacking love, or self-esteem. Some of the perpetrators are even beautiful and gorgeous. It's like why did you resort to such antics and thievery? The human psyche is quite complex and this show helps to make sense of certain things.

Nev's ability to make peace between people in situations that could otherwise go ballistic is such a gift. I'm retired on a fixed income and have spent a big chunk of my "entertainment" allowance watching segments of this show. Also, of course, this show is such an eye-opener as a warning to all of us regarding internet "relationships." As to his original experience in "Catfish" (the Movie); that it led to this series, which benefits others of us out here clicking around on our computers, was for the good. After viewing several of the segments, even if I think I know what's going to happen "this" time, I'm surprised again and again. As his program speaks to so many societal trends which were not even possible back in my college days, I find myself thinking that, if I were still back in college, I would -- with his permission, of course -- use Nev's "Catfish" series as the basis of some paper or another in my Psychology/Sociology coursework. Everyone who uses social networking should watch this series, and take the lessons it offers!

Catfish was an absolutely terrific movie, and I was skeptical they could bring the same sensibility to a TV show. I was wrong! Neve has the same everyman charisma he showcased in the movie, and the exposes and mysteries are well-crafted and keep you on the edge of your seat. I sound like a plant at this point but I'm just a very enthusiastic fan of the movie and now this show!

I dont want to say much about the documentary that led to the show, but its definitely worth watching first. There is so much of this going on, and its so interesting to see how these play out. Im sure parts were posed for TV, but the end result is the same. It shows how many ways online relationships can go wrong, or sometimes have a fairy tale ending. I think Nev and Max are entertaining and they are very careful about how they they approach each situation, making the person who might be being "catfished" feel comforted and supported. Hopefully this will make others look further into their online relationships before things get too serious, and use some of the "tools" they used on the show. It was helpful that they were explaining what they were doing, so you would be able to do some research yourself.

This is actually a pretty entertaining show.

The whole thing is set up as miniature "stings" - Nev's producers find a likely candidate, and point him and his crew in the direction of someone being catfished. Nev et al track down the fisher, and bring them face-to-face with their catfish. The whole thing has a low production value feel, but that works well to keep the show realistic. You see shots of airport checkin lines, crummy motel rooms, and cheap restaurants - all things that are a big part of filming a moving show. Nev keeps it real with this choice.

Nev also has a good rapport with people. He comes across as an aw-shucks sort of everyman; he can easily defuse a rough situation with an empathetic hug. In this way, he manages to get most of the people (both fisher and fished) to open up to the camera in a way a professional interviewer, or actor, might not.

Where the show falls flat is, unfortunately, in taking it to the next level and trying to understand / explain why this phenomenon happens. I get that Nev calls himself a neutral observer. Getting catfished sounds like it would be really, really embarrassing. Nev, though, has lucked into a magic formula for getting people to expose this issue. I would like to see Nev and his crew start exploring questions like "how could anyone believe this?"

There's a whole raft of case studies here that could be very, very interesting. It's obvious to all that the fisher is definitely a liar. Sometimes they lie for profit (although the show tends to steer clear of those sorts of scams... possibly due to safety reasons?); sometimes for revenge; other times, because they wish they were someone else.

But the second party, the target itself, is also complicit.
