Q: Has anyone seen the new popular Chinese show, "Where Are We Going, Dad?"

It's now hugely popular.. and all it is for a reality show is a bunch of male B-grade movie stars taking their kids out to the countryside. That's it. It's basically watching the vacation movies of famous people, but with huge production values. I mean, crane shots all the time as well as the visual and aural clutter of all those sound effects.

 

I don't get why it's so popular. Anyone care to say?

Yeah, I loved the episode where the dads where supposed to catch fish in a lake and they hadn't even bothered disguising the fact that the fish where already in a large net in one small area of the lake. That episode had some great added sound effects and humorous on screen stuff going for it. 

 

Conceptually, I think the show does have value. It should just either be with top of the line celebs (if there is such a thing) or with average Wangs. The pseudo-celebrity part of the show is obnoxious. 

It is interesting for people living in a society where men are expected to drink, cheat, drink more, beat their wife, where children are raised by nannies or grandparents etc. to see those men in the role of the caretaker, food provider and parent. 

 

It could be a great drinking game. A shot of vodka each time the little fat girl whines about something.

Let's look at the check-list

* Crazy operator at the sound box, unleashing barrages of obnoxious sounds effects every minute.

* Kids crying and people thinking it's cute
* The story goes like "they wake up, walk around in some vaguely nice place, eat stuffs, go to bed".

Just in case anyone has the thought "Hang on, is this original Chinese television", no it's not, it's a Korean (south) concept.

I watched it whilst getting a foot massage a few weeks ago, I enjoyed it. Was interesting to see a Chinese father actually looking after their kid.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
