No seriously. WTF??
From Date to Mate is a faux reality show, sort of like The Office, except here, a camera crew follows around 20-30 something Jewish singles in New York as they try to find love online. All the singles met each other on JMatch and we get to see what happens when they finally meet. There’s Justin, the TV production dude still kinda hung up on his non-Jewish ex. He went out on a date with Sarah, a bubbly blond Real Estate professional. Then there’s Brett who went out on a date with Daniel, the Wall Street dude.
Honestly, I thought this would suck but shockingly enough the first episode had awesome camera work, real production values, engaging characters and a script that left me cringing in sympathy for two of the characters. This has definitely raised the bar for online Jewish content. A lot. I am still bewildered at how something this good ever got made. But don’t take my word for it.
