Starting this thread in case anyone wants to discuss the new show on FYI - Find Your First Love.
I caught the second half of one episode and 3/4 of another today. I know, I know - why didn't I watch the whole second one?... well, I had to pick my daughter up from school. :-)
So the first one was the girl with reddish-brown hair, who was searching for her lost love, who was a German exchange student in Michigan. His name was Patrick. For some reason, I didn't catch her name... or I probably just don't remember it. Let's blame multi-tasking.
The second one I saw was Alicia (I think?) looking for Benjamin in France, where she had been an exchange student in high school.
This Alicia one was weird to me. It was weird that Cherry (the host) just "sent" her off to France with a couple of addresses. Yes, she had a camera crew with her, but why didn't the host tag along? She did in the German exchange student one. But then, after a wild-goose chase, Alicia was just heading to Paris, where it showed in the previews that Cherry showed up. (That's when I had to leave the house.) Now, I'm supposed to believe that Cherry all of the sudden decided to fly to Paris, but wouldn't go to the other French cities? That part seemed so set up to me, it made me think that perhaps all of the other running around, knocking on doors, etc, was set-up. I'm sure the producers had already done some knocking, right?
I'm going to have to try to find a video of the whole episode, because after all that watching, I HAVE to see this Benjamin. He seems like quite the piece of work, which Alicia seemed to have blinders to. I mean, she's looking for him in a sex shop, the guy there asks if she's had one of his children, he drops everything and leaves places all the time, paints naked women's bodies for a living (?), and has an alias?
