With all the reality television that was brought to us at the turn of the century, it really makes us appreciate simple shows like "Love Connection" that much more. TV has evolved into a never-ending grasp for ratings, but when this show was on, people loved it because it was fun to watch and it had an interesting setup, without the need for gimmicks to keep viewers glued to the screen.
It was light-hearted, friendly, and possibly one of the most wholesome dating shows to date.
If you ever watched this show when it was on the air, you'd realize how rare a breed it is compared to what modern game shows (or reality television) are willing to do for ratings.
Simply put, "Love Connection" was such a basic dating game show, but it was a pleasure to watch.
I was too young to watch it when it first came out, but I watched it (both in syndication and original airings) often throughout the early to mid 90s.
It was great to watch with others and discuss who would pick whom, and it really is a shame that television has evolved so poorly.
