  • Catfish has value as a cautionary tale, and documentation of one way the Internet has affected lives. That makes it sociology, not entertainment. show more

  • The producers do a shrewd job of not just building toward the reveal, but then following its aftermath, with the emotions of the previously unseen party brought into the equation. show more

  • "Catfish" was a clever riff on a found-footage thriller, Catfish: The TV Show is a standard reality series mixing elements of the dating and rehab-therapy genres. show more
