The Swan: Fox's newest "un-reality show"

  1. Did anyone watch the premiere on Wednesday? What did you all think? Holy plastic surgery Batman! Kelly (I think that was her name) had some MAJOR issues. Just goes to show that "fixing" the outside is one thing, but "fixing" the inside is a whole 'nother show!

    I totally agree, Kelly had a lot going on "inside" that needed to be addressed! I liked the show, it reminded me a lot of extreme makeover. I find it interesting to watch, although my boyfriend laughs at me!

    Also, I think Fox put it on Wed, to compete w/ the Bachlor Premere! From now on the show is mondays! I liked it and I hope to be free to catch some more episdoes

    Just to let you and Anniekins know, The Swan will be moving to its regular time on Mondays at 9 p.m. I think the producers maybe wanted to give it a good jump-start by having it follow American Idol's results show Wednesday this past week.

    I didn't want to get hooked on another reality show, but couldn't resist watching it. I've watched Extreme Makeover (Is it on hiatus? I can't seem to find it lately) as a guilty pleasure, so thought I'd give The Swan a try. It was interesting to have the team of doctors and trainers conferring and then being in on the final reveal. I agree, Kelly was a mess. I like that they have a counselor involved and hope she continues with counseling after her makeover.

    Rachel's makeover was really incredible, and I'll be curious to see what becomes of her relationship with that creep she has for a husband.

    Even though I like the idea of having no mirrors where the women can see themselves until the end, the humongous curtained mirror is a bit much. Plus, the contestants' faces get all contorted as they bawl their eyes out over the transformation. I'll probably keep watching and yeah, I understand how shows like this can bother folks. It's a shame society places so much emphasis on the external, but I've just always been intrigued at makeovers-- whether they are in magazines or on talk shows.
