Not impressed

Have you seen Bump+? Having heard many stories and known more than a few women who were unexpectedly expecting, I have a hard time finding ANY of these characters believable. It really seems as though the show is geared to be a platform to convince us that abortion is the best choice for these women.

What woman is going to confess to adultery on a reality show if her motive to have an abortion is to conceal it from her deployed husband? Like nobody would see it and tell him?

Sheesh.

Give me the intelligent college girl with the bright future. Give me the 18 year old good girl who left home and is shacking up with some 30 year old unemployed slacker. Give me the unwed career woman or the pregnant with #5 welfare mom. Give me likeable women.

And let’s admit that it’s all acting and not pretend that these women are actually going to take advice from random strangers on the internet.

Dialogue, yes.

Pathetic reality show-esque acting, no.

  1. I hadn't heard of it, but after watching the trailer, I'm amazed that anyone would think this was a real documentary. Talk about BAD acting.

  2. I saw the trailer for Bump on Faith and Family and the whole thing just rubs me the wrong way. I don't like the concept one bit.

  3. I couldn't even finish it. Such bad acting and such a sad topic.

  4. I take it you're all professional actors then?
