Polyamory: Married & Dating (TV Series –) on IMDb: Movies, TV, Celebs, and more User Reviews I root for polyamory just like I root for gay marriage. Critic Reviews for Polyamory: Married & Dating: Season 1. There are no critic reviews yet for Season 1. Keep checking Rotten Tomatoes for updates!. Just as the concept of polyamory is many things to many people, so is Showtime's current series Polyamory: Married & Dating. It's alternately.
In fact even the frequency of such "action" scenes is low and it is almost always short with quick editing and cuts.
But what action there is full frontal with complete nudity. Other more mainstream series - think GOT, Girls, Girlfriend experience etc - or some mainstream movies - have more hardcore action shown.
Lets come to the content and plot.
Polyamory: Married & Dating: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes
Showtime is carrying two seasons with 8 episodes each. The series follows a group of Polyamorists in Southern California where else!!
And you can expect all combinations of lovers!! Kudos to the entire cast for putting it all "out there" and exposing themselves - literally and emotionally - on national TV holding nothing back.
Kudos to the crew directors and everyone for putting together a very slick documentary shot and edited extremely well. Among the main protagonists is Kamala Devi - who is kind of the "Queen Mother" lets say over this commune of Polyamorists.
There is a lot of material by her on the internet and mainstream media - check kamaladevi. Apparently she has even given TED talks on Sexuality and Polyamory Polyamorists clearly want to differentiate themselves from and keep away from the label of Swingers.
The former do not look upon their lifestyle as one for recreational sex.
It is one for literally - having many lovers hence the word who or which is supposed to enhance your life - and after you watch the series you may find yourself compelled to grant them a few points and arguments.
However- and this is also the obvious reason why Polyamory is not and cannot be mainstream - the series neatly skirts all the obvious questions and problems related with legality and possessiveness - most obvious being the children.
He apparently has had a look at all of the Season 2 episodes. Kamala is dating her business partner Jason, who is 10 years her junior.
Their lovers, Jen and her husband Tahl, have been living with Michael and Kamala for about a year, nearly as long as Jen's been dating Jesse. Like most reality television shows, Polyamory documents ostensibly self-directed stories woven out of interpersonal relationships.
As always, certain personality types serve as perpetual plot generators. But on Polyamory, the results are largely of joy and self-discovery, not turmoil and drama.
Sure, jealousy tiptoes into the bedroom, boundaries are trampled, and certain sexual encounters turn out to be awkward stumbles.
But for the most part, these people are having a great time. As in last season, the sex within and without the group is portrayed in a frequently cut, split-screen, and softcore Real Sex-esque manner.
It's as potentially giggle-provoking as the phrase "making love" — a favorite euphemism on the show.
Polyamory: Married & Dating - Rotten Tomatoes
You watch it for the conversations There's a particular exhilaration when it comes to polyamory because there's no normative model, nor could there be. The complex interplay of feelings and comfort levels expands and alters as more people are added to the mix.
A new consensus dictates new rules.
