I saw that my TiVo was all set to record an episode of Arranged in a couple of weeks and I thought surely it must be a mistake, but apparently new episodes will resume airing beginning Tuesday, October 20 at 10/9C. It seems to be a continuation of season one (S1 E11 according to my guide), and will follow the original three couples.

Thanks for this update. I'll set up the forum accordingly.

Ooooooh!  Just caught what really looked like a 'preview! Maria slaps Christian? Nina gets in Maria's face over it? Kinda out of character for Maria, so I really have to see what goes down....they sure knew which couple to showcase to ramp up the interest in Season 2.

I was hoping Season 2 would be new couples not these three couples again. Oh well, I just watched it and I guess it's a continuation of what we saw 4-5 months ago. Or was this more footage they filmed before the reunion show? Either way It still feels very scripted to me.

The only interesting drama is between Christian and Maria. He's still an immature jerk. She talks a lot about being unhappy but she defended him so much at the reunion that's why I think this is all scripted.

I'll wait to see if a thread is created for this season and comment more later.

There's conflicting information as to whether this is Season 1 Continued or Season 2. We're treating it as Season 1 Continued.

This actually Tivo'd last night (I never un-Tivo'd it from last season, forgot!).  Anyway, I paused it to go to the bathroom and I paused it at the part where Maria "slaps" Christian and she is clearly smiling while slapping him.  I even rewound it and watched it again...in slow mo and this show and that scene was clearly scripted.  she was definitely smiling when she slapped him, which wasn't hard.

I missed the smile, but I too have it on DVR and will re-check.  I am sure this show is scripted, but, actually, I do not mind.  Lots of little things do not really add up.  For instance, how handy that everyone leaves the house while Maria packs and then leaves.  The script has sent Peter out with Christian, but why did Michael and Nina leave?  Where is Jimmy?  And, where is the dog?  Why is this little yorkie never barking, never underfoot, never seen?  Does he exist?  I would guess yes, but has been put in a separate room for the filming.

Please do check and and tell me if you see the same thing.  You have to freeze it and slo mo it to actually see it.  I want to make sure I wasn't seeing thing.  But I swear, she is laughing as she "slaps" him. 

 

You can also tell the show is scripted because Christian and Maria are HORRIBLE actors.  Like the convo they were having in the street after Christian bought some clothes and was telling Maria she couldn't have anything?  totally scripted.  Also, his parents keep going on and on about how if the Gypsie community finds out that Christan and Maria aren't getting along then his little brother can get married off.  HELLO!  They are on tv.  The "Gypsie community" can just watch the show and see what a nightmare Christian is.

A new season with new couples was what I had initially expected when the show started up again and I had also hoped there would be some sort of extended filler episode giving an update on the first set of couples....but I have come to like the continuation of the three stories - well, Christian and Maria certainly, but Josh and Meghan are a total snooze and Veeral is so totally offputting in his arrogant, superiority, shoving his parents/sister into EVERY second of his marriage ( I say 'his' because it truly appears to be his mindset that it's all his and Ragini is nothing but the broodmare along for the 'ride') that the only reason I want to see either of those couples is to see them crash and burn into EXTREMELY acrimonious divorces - richly deserved on all sides...otherwise, GO MARIA!!!

I emailed Michael and Nina concerning Christian no t working. Michael told me that everyone in his familybhas,a high school education. He owns a construction company and Christian is a full time contractor for his company.

I thought Michael was in the flower business?  Maybe he owns more then one company?  I just can not see pampered laze about Christian in the rough and tumble world of construction.  Perhaps, he just stands around and tells the other guys what to do since he is the boss's kid? 

 

If Michael is a successful business man then that probably explains where they get the money from.  I wonder if the second season will pick up with Christian's brother?  it would be great to see Christian and Maria move out of the basement with the baby.

 

I do not needs to see anything else of the other couples.  Though an update on Josh and Meghan would be nice, as sometimes I feel they are the ones most likely ones headed for divorce.

The only problem with that would be that they'd all blame her, and she'd somehow feel responsible despite the fact that IMO Josh is an entitled, oblivious, self-absorbed prig.

Maybe she would be better off without him.

 

I completely agree. I suspect her family wouldn't be that supportive, though, and I wonder if Megan is strong enough to manage that. Oh, well, if it happens, we probably won't see it on the show.

I suspect that many on this show are reluctant for the world at large to know they are Romani.  Comments on this and other forums demonstrate their fears are not unfounded.  So I think this is why Michael never revealed his business on the show and why it was made to appear that Christian worked only that one day on the roof.  (I may even have posted a negative comment because roofing scams are a famous traveling con-man speciality ... but the Millers clearly are long time residents of their area.)  Perhaps many Roma do home school their children, but I wish Nina would have clarified that her own children attended public schools.

 

Recently I discovered a whole marathon of these shows appeared on my TIVO.  I re-watched a couple and was struck by how well Christian and Maria appear to get along on the "Couples Meet" show.  They just don't seem to match the couple we saw arguing about money, supposedly months later, though heaven knows all couples fight about money, and her comments about being a prisoner made in the diner do not match what she said at the Couples Meet.   One other observation...the trip to Serendipity...the trees are in full bloom in the background.  This episode had to have been made in either October, right after their wedding, or maybe April at the earliest.  Reminder:  reality TV is not reality.  It is edited/ cut and pasted/ rewritten reality, and FYI producers need to be more attentive to detail.

Can still get a high school education and be home schooled. Which it could be they made sure the boys will have it just so they do have a decent future or they up and leave. I can't see them wanting to be in a public school though with all those non gypsy girls around. Would be to easy for them to get in trouble if they did.  LOL If one does home schooling in the correct manner they will have a good education. 

  I agree that the producers/editors need to pay more attention to what they are doing.
