Three’s Company on ‘Couple to Throuple’ (Review)

Reading now: 601

Couple to Throuple all bed down for their first night, the show could be any other in the proliferating genre of hookup TV, populated by bed-hopping singles shacked up in sex mansions.But look closely, once the screen shifts to spy-cam night vision of bodies writhing beneath the sheets, and you’ll not mistake a third eager, willing participant bumping and grinding with the main pair.

Set to boldly explore the bounds of polyamory, the show’s couples and singles — thirds, if you will — might represent a lighthearted, next logical step in society’s surging discourse on ethical non-monogamy.Then again, to more traditionally-minded viewers, or those simply with different tastes in popular entertainment, these semi-exhibitionist throuples might just speak to the unrelenting decline of American culture.

But, hey, why can’t it be both?Actually, if the show aimed a little lower, and just went balls-out for shameless lasciviousness, the results might be more thrilling than the generally repetitive, thinly plotted unscripted drama that plays out here.

Instead, episodes draw out scenes of longtime couples Lauren and Dylan, Brittne and Sean, Corey and Wilder, and, the lone same-sex couple, Rehman and Ashmal, talking over their feelings, with one another, with other couples, with sex and relationship expert Shamyra Howard.“Poly’s supposed to be fun,” pronounces the single lady who’s first picked as a third by Brittne and Sean, and we’re inclined to agree.
