Critic Reviews for Dating Around Season 1

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (5)

Dating Around piles on excruciating, relatable awkwardness... Though cringey, the gaffes bolster the sense that genuine interaction is being portrayed.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

There's a raw honesty to Dating Around that's missing from a lot of more contrived reality shows.

Feb 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Dating Around's first episode is very bad. The rest of the show is exceptional.

Jun 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Refreshingly genuine dating series has some drinking.

Feb 26, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If it's not going to say anything about the state of modern love, it could use just a bit more of Tiffany's wild-card energy instead of playing it so damn safe.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Dating Around turns dating into a spectator sport, and a highly entertaining one at that. But at the end of the day, it's yet another reminder that no one can fully understand a relationship...

Feb 20, 2019 | Full Review…

I guarantee that you're going to chow through Dating Around like it's an ice cream cake. It won't do you any good, but you can worry about that in the morning.

Feb 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Somewhere between a nightlife docuseries and a Zales commerical, Dating Around first appears as a realistic, personal, vaguely boring, but very pretty glimpse into real-world romance. Then things get fun.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

By episode three, I had decided it was deceptively appealing. By episode four, I realized I'd forgotten to pick up my child from school.

Feb 15, 2019 | Full Review…

With its tackiness enamelled in urbanity and its timbre attuned to the Tinder age, Dating Around is marvellously of the moment.

    why they make the gay guy dates a bunch of freakshows? of course he'd go for the most normal looking one

    Dating Aroundâ??s stellar production, short episodes, and refreshing approach to reality dating TVâ??focusing solely on its diverse protagonistsâ?? first dates in each episodeâ??truly distinguish it in the genre, and demonstrate how engrossing reality TV can be without resorting to its usual drama-mongering.
