Polyamory married and dating season 1
Husband and wife Michael and Kamala have many lovers, including couple Jen and Tahl.This explicit look at the ins and outs of modern-day polyamory follows characters grappling with the emotional, psychological and sexual drama of sharing their hearts, as well as their beds.Obviously, part of the show’s appeal is that these polyamorous people are having sex right on the screen in front of you, but it would be nice if the direction focused a little less on the “kinky” aspects of their lives and more on their interpersonal relationships.For example, it’s surprising to see genuine jealousy and discomfort from some of the members of these families, despite their established lifestyles.I’m very happy about it, and would love to be a creative consultant on a polyamory sitcom or movie some day.There is a lot of good drama/comedy in that little conundrum. Sometimes referred to as a Bizarre Love Triangle, after the New Order song.
In the ‘80’s, ‘90’s and into the early 2000’s, I appeared on a lot of television talk shows and a few documentaries, mostly as an expert on polyamory, but I don’t have any experience at all with reality TV which has only taken off in recent years, apart from watching a few episodes of the most popular shows and talking with a half dozen producers over the years who thought that a reality TV series on polyamory would be a big hit.
Even if the writer chooses to challenge that assumption, there will be some pretty tricky footwork required to make it all come out to a resolution. It can involve as many people as you like, turning it into a square, pentagon or more, but ultimately the love remains unrequited. Alice wants Bob, who is already in a relationship with Claire. Alice might try persuading Bob to give up on Claire.
Alice wants Bob, Bob wants Claire, and Claire wants Alice.
None of those conversations ever led to a show getting on the air so far as I know, although a few pilots were shot and at least one contract signed.
So it’s quite a breakthrough to see airing on Showtime after all these years.
