Catfish TV Show – Real Life or Foolish Ignorance?

A friend was over and she asked if my girlfriend or I have heard of a show called Catfish. Neither of us did so we ended up watching it because it sounded intriguing. The show is about people  that start talking to someone online and develop a relationship. Usually it turns out that they’re not who they said they were and sometimes this is to the extreme.

Now I won’t lie, I actually find the show amusing and enjoy watching it but how realistic is it?

I find it hard to believe that someone was talking to another person online for let’s say 8 months and never skyped or anything. I mean first off if I were talking to someone attractive online and we hit it off, I’d be instantly skeptical if I never met them in person. Why would they be actively chatting online when they could easily date someone local and more than likely get hit on all the time? Let’s get past that point and assume they made themselves very convincing and had a story about how they’re sick of people in their town or something. Now we’ve been chatting for months online and possibly on the phone and I still don’t have any new casual pictures or video chatted? Maybe they always come up with an excuse why they can meet, show a new picture or video chat. Those are pretty huge red flags that would normally alarm a person to demand proof or simply stop talking. “Oh but she/he is my soul mate I just know it!”. COME ON! Really?!

The voice alone if they talk on the phone is a pretty good indicator although not in the case of someone of the same sex and age. I’m talking about when you THINK you’re talking to a good looking model guy and he’s in a bunch of magazines and when you talk to him on the phone he sounds either like a girl or a 14 year old boy. Obviously something is wrong there. I’m talking about when you THINK you’re talking to a hot chick and she refuses to talk on the phone or video chat or maybe sounds one again like a little boy (Maybe it’s still a girl you might say? Well maybe it’s a 13 year old girl and now you’re apparently a predator).

CATFISH

I understand some people get desperate or get caught up thinking how perfect someone is or who they have so many of the same interests but how silly are you to let that blind you of common sense AFTER maybe 2 weeks? Shouldn’t you be interested in seeing they’re face when you talk and if they didn’t have a computer to Skype, wouldn’t you hope that if someone truly “loves” you that they’d buy a cheap laptop or webcam for you?

To be honest I’m not sure if everything is made up for television but these kinds of things DO actually happen in real life. They shouldn’t ever get to this point but they do. Be careful you never know if you’re talking to a  girl, guy or possibly even someone who is transgender.

Do you think the Catfish show is real?

Top 5 Movies Of 2012 That I’d Actually Re-watch

top5

The Avengers

Come on, you get all of these heroes together in one movie?! Yes please. Each an every character was interesting and obviously can do well in their own movies so it’s an absolute score to have them jam packed into one. Probably the best overall pleaser considering it can reach almost all audiences and spark intrigue by everyone. All around entertaining, clever and funny movie. Recommended for PG audiences.

Cabin In The Woods

Personally I absolutely loved this move and wished I could watch a sequel immediately after the credits started rolling. The idea that the whole movie could have had a different type of threat from fables is genius and interesting. It almost reminds of some of the old unique Goosebumps books where you could make a decision and you’d have a different outcome depending on which object was picked in the cellar. Overall grade A movie that shakes up the “Teens go into cabin in the woods and get killed” genre. Recommended for mature audiences.

Looper

I was so confused and creeped out when I started watching this movie not knowing anything about it beforehand. The main character I SWORE looked just like Joseph Gordon-Levitt only different. I couldn’t get over it because I figured it must be a different guy or possibly a relative. Basically that thought kept with me the entire movie and finally I realized it was in fact Joseph. Seriously? I feel a bit silly now thinking it wasn’t him but I didn’t realize that film could seamlessly change his appearance in the manner it did. Phenomenal. All the visual hype aside it was also a unique and amusing film that was very well done. Recommended for mature audiences.

The Amazing Spider-man

Not exactly what I expected from the etched in stone story of Spiderman but in a good way. When I first heard they were rebooting the series I rolled my eyes and thought to myself, “Here we go again”. Don’t get me wrong the main structure is still intact, it’s just that there was no Mary-Jane. Everyone loves an underdog story and you feel for Peter Parker along his ride. Recommended for PG audiences.

Men In Black 3

First off the guy who they get to play K (Tommy Lee Jones) in his younger years (Josh Brolin) totally looks like he would. Hands down a great casting job. It’s the usual wacky MiB movie with the quirky one liners and expected visual effects. The ending I found to be particularly good. Recommended for PG audiences.

New Iron Man Movie – Marvel Superhero

Iron Man 3

This is bound to be an excellent movie! I used to read Iron Man comic books and was jacked later on in life when the first movie came out. Perfectly executed plus Robert Downey Jr. is an awesome actor. Can’t wait to see how good this one plays out.
