the moment of truth

Posted: January 24, 2008 in tv & movies

Anybody happen to catch “The Moment of Truth” last night on Fox? It was the premeire episode of the new show where you win money simply by telling the truth. Contestants are given an extensive polygraph test before the shows with over 50 probing questions. 21 of those questions – mostly the juiciest and most embarrassing ones – are asked during the show.

Last night, a guy admitted that he had not yet pursued having a child with his wife of 2 years because he was not sure if she would be his life long partner. He smiled. She didn’t.

The show originated in Columbia. And despite high ratings…it was cancelled…because a contestant admitted she had hired someone to kill her husband! Seriously! You can read about it here.

The show almost demands we ask some questions of ourselves.

If you were submitted to a polygraph and could be asked ANYTHING by your significant other, what would they discover about you? If you could do the same to them, would you even want to? Would it even be remotely healthy? Is it better to know EVERYTHING about your mate (their every thought, fantasy, temptation, past sins, etc.) or is it better to know and understand them as a whole person…a flawed person…and to ultimately trust that their love is real and their intentions are good, despite those flaws?

    I believe that I would have no problems with my husband. Its my co-workers I don’t want in the room with me. They might not be too happy.
