Catfish: Trolls (MTV) – Premieres 18th July
Another Catfish spinoff to join MTV Suspect, where in this iteration Charlamagne Tha God and Raymond Braun help someone whose been getting abuse on the internet.
Following the same format as Catfish, Charlamagne and Raymond meet up with the person that been getting abuse. Where they talk to the pair about when it started and what’s been going on and for how long. From there the pair do the usual style research, where they look into the persons online activity, talk to folks they know, and then try to arrange a meet.
By the time the victim and troll meet, there is an unsurprising amount of back and forth, where Charalamagne doesn’t seemed to fussed about getting anything resolved. Leaving Raymond on an uphill battle to get anything resembling a conclusion on film.
The show then does the usual wrap up, where they talk to both parties a few weeks on from when they met to find out what they are up to. Altogether the programme comes across as a poor Catfish clone, that lacks any of the charm that the original has. Making it all a bit forgettable and a grind to get through.
