Did you look up from your phone long enough to take in The Seven Year Switch and say “None of these people should be together.”?
What are they doing there, living with a man/woman who no longer makes them smile, who seems kind of depressed most of the time, who refuses to hug them in public, who spends up big on a TV and then questions why you need a ceremony at a wedding?
WHO EVEN ARE THESE PEOPLE?
They are me. And you. And your sister and your friend and your mum. They are everywhere.
Perhaps the biggest shock about watching the undoubtedly exploitative Seven Year Switch last night was not how awful it was – I don’t think anyone watching was expecting an episode of Four Corners – but how human it was, how relatable.
