This week, the USA Network premiered a new show “The Moment” hosted by Super Bowl Quarterback and MVP, Kurt Warner. Regularly scheduled for Thursdays at 10, I caught it on DVR from a special showing on BRAVO.
When I first read about the premise, I thought this is the kind of Reality Show I like.
Each week, Warner introduces the viewer to someone who at some point in their life had to give up on a special dream. The reasons for the dream change is varied and explained in the show’s set up each week.
The premier episode featured an Alabama mother, Tracie Marcum, who gave up on her dream of being a photographer when a difficult divorce forced her to close her portrait studio.
Tracie’s new husband realized her unfulfilled dream and her love of sports would combine for a perfect career opportunity as a sports photo-journalist.
After being surprised by Warner and her family, Tracie is given the chance to learn from one of the nation’s leading photo-journalist and eventually have the opportunity to interview with Sports Illustrated.
This show does a great job of developing the characters and allowing the viewer into their world and their heart. Tracie Marcum overcame severe personal obstacles, and we saw personal growth during the time of training with her mentor.
Kurt Warner serves as the perfect “cheerleader” and host for this show. He is a proven example of never giving up, which he relays to the viewer and show’s participant with ease.
In the end, the week’s featured character is offered the opportunity to interview for their dream job, “The Moment,” they have waited for their entire life.
With all of the scripted reality shows on television, “The Moment” shines above. For all of us who have unfulfilled dreams, “The Moment,” gives us hope and determination to never give up, no matter what the situation of life presents.
I enjoyed “The Moment,” it’s feel good TV that we can all appreciated!
