I rarely catch a show on the night that it airs, so I am very thankful for our DVR, to watch shows when I have time (usually in peace meal). But, having the DVR is one, remembering to set it up for new shows to record is another. :-)
One new show that I was looking forward to seeing recently is "It Takes a Church," which airs on the GSN. This reality dating show is unlike others that you have seen.
"Hosted by 2014 Grammy® Nominee and multi Dove Award winner Natalie Grant, IT TAKES A CHURCH features Christian congregations across the country who play matchmaker in a competition to help an unattached fellow parishioner find their partner. Each one-hour episode features a different congregation from across the country including Brooklyn, NY; Baltimore, MD; Goshen, IN; Milwaukee, WI; Rock Hill, SC; Oxnard, CA; and Tempe, AZ.
Each week, one unsuspecting single who has a desire to find a mate, is surprised to learn that their church is coming together to help them find love, led by their own Pastor, who speaks to the situation and gives advice on the potential suitors.
Luckily, I was sent a screener copy of the pilot episode, which premiered on June 5th at 9/8C, and have to say that this is a wonderful concept and one dating show I can see myself watching and enjoying. I oftentimes hear single friends talk about their dating struggles, and how a few found love through match ups from fellow church members. I personally liked watching the church members recommending and even helping the contestant select potential dates to go on.
Are you a fan of reality dating shows, but have found some to be stale or not as entertaining as they used to be? Then, why not tune in each Thursday at 9/8C on GSN and check out this new series, "It Takes a Church," and watch matchmaking happen in churches all around the US. Who knows, maybe the show will be coming to your neck of the woods. :-)
Make sure to head back here after catching an episode and letting me know what you think. I now how my DVR set to record this show weekly, so I will not have to worry about missing an episode -- that it, once I find time to watch them. :-)
Disclosure: I was sent a screener copy from the vendor in order to write up an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.
