People cannot be this dumb. Not in 2014. Not with countless resources helping solve a mystery that doesn’t require embarrassing yourself on national television. But mama told me to never knock the hustle and I have no qualms admitting Catfish is a guilty pleasure.
Nev and Max return for the third installment of their hit series starting Wednesday, May 7 at 10:00 p.m. EST. From the looks of the trailer, there doesn’t appear to be a Dee Pimpin’ or Rod, but the show is always good for at least three knee-slapping episodes per season. Plus, when there’s a guy resembling Ving Rhames in Holiday Heart and a light skin brother shedding crocodile tears calling someone evil, the potential for rare levels of comedy and ignorance are hard to ignore.
The premiere falls right in the thick of the NBA playoffs, so chances are I’ll miss it when it airs live. But between this and The Boondocks,* it’s great to know there will be plentiful escapes from the rigors of playoff basketball waiting.
* – While I’d much rather McGruder calling the shots on the idea he birthed, I figure giving the first two or three episodes is worth the try.
