Popcorn. If You Are The One.

Dating shows don't get much better than If You Are The One, a fast moving program from China giving twenty four Chinese women the opportunity to win a date with the man of their dreams. In round one the women decide if they like the man presented to them. Or not, turning out their light if they're not interested. The fun begins when the host asks one of the women why they extinguished their light: "He's too fat" or "I don't like his teeth" are typical responses. The girls also get to ask their own, often pointed, questions. For example this one to a young artist: "Are you one of those artists who sits in the corner at night and laments life?" She wasn't being saddled with no no-hoper artist. Compelling viewing, often hilarious.
