    Interesting column on Swap, Spouses

    Wife exchange is eye-opening viewing

    By MELANIE McFARLAND
    SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER TELEVISION CRITIC

    The question at the heart of both Fox's "Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy" and ABC's "Wife Swap" is: "Is the grass greener on the other side of the domestic fence?"

    After watching several episodes, green isn't the dominant color. Try red and blue, in deep, scorching, "direct viewing may cause blindness" shades.

    No other shows on television better demonstrate the chasm between liberal and conservative America as honestly. In their most basic interpretations, "Wife Swap" and "Trading Spouses" are about experiencing different household styles. The idea is for wives, and the occasional pair of husbands, to immerse themselves into another's concept of marriage, parenting and gender roles and expectations in modern society -- the very issues at the core of the marriage and family values debate.
