Okay so since starting at MTV last December i was super eager to start watching this TV show Catfish that has been airing over in the US but wasn’t due to start in the UK until the 21st January. Massive perk of my job means i get to watch our stuff before it airs so every lunchtime i have been sitting with my little sandwich, watching what fast became my new favourite show.
The show is great on a variety of levels - i had seen the film Catfish early last year but even that couldn’t prepare me for some of the madness that would be revealed in the TV show version. It is entertaining, shocking and so, so relatable/ relevant. These are three of the main factors why it is so good. The biggest factor of why it’s so good?! Nev and Max. The hosts. It took me about one and a half episodes to fall in love with the both of them; they’re both so sweet and kind and funny and sensitive and whenever one of the people they’re with changes their hair or puts on a nice dress they always notice and compliment them on it. They just seem like two great guys and watching them was half the joy of the entire show. Just yesterday i posted a facebook status about how much i love them in fact.
Anyways, this morning i couldn’t really be bothered with my appearance - y’know where you’re just like ‘oh fuck it’ and succumb to an ugly day because you figure noone important will ever see you? I literally had my hair pulled back, little make up, my six-year-old glasses on and an oversized, unflattering jumper with flats. Normally when i go to work, or anywhere, i make an effort because i like to look nice but today i just couldn’t be assed…. So today at about 2.30pm i get told Nev and Max will be coming into the office to talk to a few of us about the show as it’s due to air so soon. When does this ever happen?! I can guarantee if i had made an effort today they would not have been turning up and i can also guarantee the next time i go into work looking like such trash i will be told that bloody Ezra Miller is coming on or something.
Anyways, despite looking like a hobo i went to this meet thing (where these super awesome cupcakes were, along with some champagne) and Nev and Max talked about the show and we asked a few questions and afterwards i hung back and spoke to Nev a bit more, i probably seemed a little obsessive just barking about every single episode and how awesome it was in an annoying kind of way, but regardless both of them were super nice and sweet and lovely. They are exactly as nice as they seem in the show and it was so good to meet them and have a proper conversation about the madness that is Catfish and see the genuine chemistry and friendship that they have with eachother.
I kind of wish i was in an online relationship with someone who didn’t skype just so i could hang with them for a few days while they try and figure it out.
Anyways, to conclude; Catfish, Nev and Max are all incredible and to anyone from the UK- be sure to watch it when it airs on MTV next Monday at 10pm, it’s one of the best shows i have seen and if you’re on tumblr i’m gonna assume that it is mega relavant and relatable to you.
