Parental Control


Yet another MTV staple, Parental Control featured parents who were unhappy with their child’s choice of boyfriend/girlfriend and wanted to replace them. The parents picked a slate of potential replacements for their son/daughter to date. The unfortunate child then had to go on a series of dates with the parent-approved suitor… while the parents and current S/O watched on the living room TV. At the end of the dates, the child chose between their current boyfriend/girlfriend and one of the parental options. Of course, the kid almost never broke up with their current significant other. The whole thing was clearly scripted and full of terrible actors, but the sheer joy of spending a sick day watching strangers make horrible romantic decisions would kickstart many enduring Bachelor addictions.
