Thursday TV: Romance Behind Barriers

LoveIsBlind_Netflix has done a lot of things but not a dating show (unless you count “Terrece House”). That changes tonight with “Love is Blind” (Netflix, streaming) in which singles flirt with others without the benefit of seeing them. They talk behind barriers and take notes.

When there’s a match, they even have to propose before seeing their partner for the first time. Then they have to adjust once they do. The caveat undercutting the drama: Nobody’s actually ugly anyway. Nick and Vanessa Lachey host.
