BBC3 (the BBC’s youth channel) airs a series called The World’s Strictest Parents. It’s a reality show where tearaway British youths (“oiks” as the London mayor would call them) are housed with said Strictest Parents in an inverse of Nanny 911 (where a British nanny schools naughty American kids). In last week’s show, two kids are sent to Utah to live with a Mormon family. Enjoy:
There are archetypes aplenty including the feral British teenager and the American religious conservative. Whilst the Pecks’ Utah Mormon Nice is a bit much (and alien) for my tastes, the show ultimately celebrates their values and the positive effect they supposedly had on their British guests.
