Stranded with My Mother-in-Law Review 2023 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online

The six couples who are participating on Stranded With My Mother-In-Law think that they’re participating in couples reality series on that island, with a prize worth just short of $100,000. What they don’t know is that the mothers of one of each couple’s participants are lurking nearby.

Souza actually introduces us to the mothers-in-law first. It’s your usual assortment of MILs, most of which don’t particularly like the person their son or daughter married. In one case, her son has been married to his wife for 18 years and his mom still doesn’t think she’s right for him. In another case, the mother of a woman who married her husband a year ago is upset that he never took the time to meet her in person — they still have never met. Another MIL thinks her daughter’s husband is lazy. Another thinks her daughter-in-law has too many tattoos.

After the couples engage in some first-day risqué chit-chat, including an oh-so-mature game of “Never Have I Ever,” they’re presented with their first challenge the next day: Go row out to a jetty and get a treasure, then come back and unravel ribbons on a pole until a spike falls down. The first two couples to finish get VIP sleeping quarters; the second two get more plain sleeping quarters; the final two get a more “rustic” room.

The treasures? The mothers-in-law, of course! The couples, some of whom have members that are afraid of the water, need to row rafts to the jetty, get their moms inside, row back, and the three of them have to work on the untangling.

But there’s another surprise in store for them: When the challenge is over, the people leaving aren’t the mothers-in-law, but their kids! Yes, that means that the moms and the son- or daughters-in-law they don’t get along with will have to live together and work together to win the prize. Meanwhile, the group that got sent off will be secretly watching the proceedings from an underground bunker, able to at times influence the results.

The entire concept of Stranded With My Mother-In-Law is essentially “they hate each other, but can they work together?” It’s actually a concept we’re surprised a reality producer either here or in England hasn’t thought of already, given how often we see “mother-in-law letters” flood advice columns online and in print. It’s not like people being annoyed by meddling mothers-in-law is a new concept; it was an essential element of most sitcoms in the ’50s and ’60s.

There definitely could be some good, worthwhile emotional moments in this series, where some of the in-laws come to some sort of understanding with each other and maybe even (gasp!) start liking each other. But for the most part, this series is designed to emphasize throwdowns between the contestants and their MILs, as the scenes for the upcoming season emphasize.

Your enjoyment of this show will depend on just how much conflict you can tolerate. It’s pretty apparent that the show’s casting people found particularly, um, dramatic mothers-in-law to cast, ones that seem to blow small slights out of proportion and/or have extreme opinions of the people who married their kids. They’re all entertaining, of course, but we know that these moms are there to take over, not to mend fences.
