What do you think? Do you like The Briefcase TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
I liked the show, The Briefcase. Well done. Would love to see more!
I am hooked on BRIEFCASE. I love the dynamics of the show. The insites of men and women and their thought processes that they use to make their decisions.Great reality TV. Please don’t cancel the show.
June 24th show made me angry ,I am from the area around Dayton, Ohio and these people from my state totally made me angry. Here they see these people with 3 children living in a camper because of the Hurricane that hit , and they have a home to live in didn’t give them more than they did ,I didn’t expect anything different though from them, The other couple gave them 20,000 which would have fixed things in there home, She can defer her school loans for a while, he is out of work and this gives him to chance… Read more »
Love this show. It takes advantage of NO ONE, and no one on the show has been “poor.” The media is full of idiots. We finally get a good reality show with drama and ethics and it’s trashed for taking advantage of “the poor?” Ridiculous. This is agood show, thank you CBS.
Need to do a follow up, did the families do what was intended with the money …seemed to set up ….
The people on this show have not been needy. They have all had nice vehicles, homes, food etc. To me just not having your wants doesn’t make you needy.
Tell me about it right? That last episode where the lesbians could afford five years of invitro was especially hilarious.
A TERRIBLE’ show. It feeds on the emotions of the real people. What crap.
Yes, because “real” people should never show their emotions on TV, right?
There are people that do need help and this a great show for that unless your greedy people and some have only thought of only there own needs but it also shows there are still giving and wonderful people in this world
Loved the briefcase. Came upon it by accident. What a heartwarming show. So different from all the violent shows. I will watch it from now on. Should be renewed.
I see why this country is in such bad shape with so many selfish people in it!
Better concept. Cancel the show and give the money it would have cost to make directly to charity.
Another cheap to produce, profitable ‘hit’ for the fans of so-called ‘reality’ fans. Another loss for a trial run of a new creative (not just a copy of current scripted hits) show. 🙁
