A snarky but affectionate dissection of the love we see on-screen – and what it says about all of us. Hosted by culture critics Emma Gray and Claire Fallon, Love To See It is a weekly podcast that recaps reality dating shows like “The Bachelor” and revisits the romantic movies that shape the way we date and love today. We laugh, we cry, we break down every juicy detail and unpack all the weird messages that pop culture sends us about love, sex, and dating.

The Bachelorette is back and the Jenn-ergy is palpable! The men are arriving at the new mansion with all kinds of limo exits from balloon harnesses, fancy cars, face bandages, and plenty of shots. Jenn’s looking for a fiery, ruthless, reckless love. Are any of these men up to the task?
It’s time to gear up for Jenn’s season of The Bachelorette with a deep dive into her men! The boy bosses are coming in force this season with plenty of finance bros and entrepreneurs. Let’s hope Jenn is looking for a guy in finance!
Some films age well, others age poorly. This one ages… confusingly? Today we’re breaking down She’s The Man which somehow feels both ahead of its time and wildly outdated. But that just means there’s a lot to unpack! Joining us today is actor and friend of the pod Erin Darke!
Nothing quite says Perfect Match like five reality TV couples trying to convince us that they’re in love… right before breaking up a few weeks later. While this cast might not be the best at finding love, they are really great at stirring up drama! This finale kept things exciting all the way to the end, when Netflix came prepared with receipts. Justice for Melinda!
Only days left to find the perfect match! We’re down to women yelling at each other… about the fact that they’re yelling at each other… over mediocre men.
When you’re titling your outfit things like the Keep Her Man 3000, you know it’s getting serious! The ladies are really putting in the work to keep their matches and the men are… actively sabotaging those same matches? Look, it’s messy and dramatic, but that’s why we love it.
Perfect Match is back! The cross-franchise show brings together Netflix’s reality stars to remind us just how awful these men are. Will anyone find their perfect match? Maybe! But either way, we’re here for the ride!

We’ll also discuss the original book and some of the key differences between the two – including the ending. To help us along the way is author Alison Rose Greenberg! 
Reality dating shows are full of drama– that’s part of the reason we love them! But while it can be entertaining to watch, living through it is a totally different experience.

I think you two are the funniest and most real too. I choose your Bachelor podcast first, before any of the others.

Obsessed with this show!! I love watching reality TV through a race informed, critical viewpoint. This show delves into the sociological implications of the Bachelor franchise and it's fascinating. Been listening for four years and won't stop anytime soon!

Taking yourselves way too seriously! I totally agree about the need for diversity etc but holy cow. Say what needs to be said then MOVE ON. When I want that kind of commentary I'll go to places like NPR. I come to The Bachelor for brainless fun.

I think you need to change the name of your show. I am looking for recaps ..not feminist I the only one?

The first half of this interview was great! While it was cool to hear from her, the portion with LeNease could've been way shorter.

I agree with some of the other more recent posts. I know you might have to review these shows for you career but it seems lately you watch more for all the ways to point out your platforms than for the entertainment. and there doesnt seem to be any enjoyment. sometimes it is ok to allow a show to be for heterosexual dating. especially since it seems to be pointing out just how off track it has become. maybe some good comes from these shows. and if even some people learn communication dos and don'ts from watching its could be slightly helpful. also, its ok for a heterosexual man or woman to want to find a realtionship and even marriage with another heterosexual. I believe that you both, as well as some of the people you have on your show, are in committed relationships. as a woman we should be free to make choices even if that is choosing to stay home with their children if it is an option and shouldnt be seen as less than.

I get what yall are trying to do, but yall take it too far sometimes. Saying someone's hair is great, who HAS AMAZING HAIR, isnt racist. Not every dang word that comes out of someone's mouth is racist. Chill on the racism, feminism before you scew too far, then lose the goodness of what you are trying to do

OMG, please stop saying "like". You can't be taken seriously if you use that word in every sentence.
