Question: When is a reality television show not a reality television show?

Even though it contains a number of contestants, trapped in a hostile environment, governed by rules not of their own choosing and trying to find their ‘soul mate’.

Answer: When it is on PBS and they are transported back to the 19th Century for a Regency House Party.

I can’t describe how excited I got whilst watching it. Absorbing anthropological television. It even caught Alex’s attention – but, who can resist heaving bosoms, rigid social etiquette, pretty frocks and that’s just the chaps. Will the young bucks manage to outwit the moral watchdogs and get some ‘alone time’ with the pretty ladies? Is the hermit the best catch? Makes you wonder what your social position would have been a few hundred years ago……
