The concept of "Wife Swap" is so simple that it works beautifully. Like almost any other reality TV show, it operates on drama that is generated by pitting dissimilar people against each other.
But it’s actually down to kind of a formula. Swaps are made between either religious families and alternative families or frugal and super-spending families. However, that formula seems to work pretty well because there is always, always conflict among the families and visiting wives.
Re-runs air for several hours on TV every day, but I also like to watch clips of my favorite episodes online. But I haven’t always been able to do that. I used to have dial=up, which was virtually the only internet service available in my area but I came across some satellite internet specials one day and switched over to a new internet provider. Now I get to watch clips without having to wait forever for them to load.I also like to keep up with all the feedback on blogs because of especially crazy participants and the drama that ensues.
