Good article on Rob/Amber and how casting them has hurt the reputation of TAR. I mean, on the one hand the whole argument is philosophizing on reality TV shows--which gives way too much energy and thought to a crap entertainment medium--but Denhart makes good points on how, while they make for good television (in the same way that Kristin's beloved paternity tests on Maury make for "good" TV), they also hurt the integrity of an otherwise above-average show and erode the qualities that drew many of us to TAR in the first place (that being, when few people were watching it but those who did were fiercely loyal, ultimately getting it to the place of wider recognition it enjoys today). Catch-22 blah blah. Anyway, take a gander if you're interested in such things.
