Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is a few days away and the global marketing machine is in full swing. Retailers and advertisers are spending billions trying to convince people that all they need for an epic romance are some flowers, chocolates, and diamonds. And all that is nice, but...then there’s reality. And reality in this case takes the form of the semi-controversial Netflix series Indian Matchmaking. It turns the much hyped Hollywood “meet cute” on its head in favor of discussions about arranged marriage, “biodata”, fair skin, family compatibility, and appropriate height (yes; somehow that’s a thing). Join Sharon and Lisa as they react to episode 1 of the series.
