Sexy Beasts: Netflix's new dating show brings out everyone's inner animal

All right! Which one of you slipped an ounce of dried mushrooms into my tea this morning? First of all, thanks. Second, what fresh hell has Netflix cooked up with its new dating show Sexy Beasts?

Feeling like a nightmare version of Netflix's other series Love is Blind, Sexy Beasts aims to mask people's facial features, allowing their personalities to shine brighter than before. The logic goes that if you can become infatuated with someone while they look like a panda, scarecrow, or demon from the depths of Hell, it must be true love. It's a high-concept show that feels as if it were ripped out of the mid-2000s. I'd love to get the Furry community's take on this bold theme.

Per Netflix, here's the official description for Sexy Beasts:

Real-life singles sport elaborate makeup and prosthetics to put true blind-date chemistry to the test.

Narrated by Catastrophe star and comedian Rob Delaney, Sexy Beasts is what you get when millions of people tune in every week for shows like The Masked Singer. Honestly, I don't know whether to be terrified or intrigued. After all, there's nothing quite like watching a man dressed as a beaver admit that he prefers looks over personality in front of countless Netflix subscribers. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm a total nerd for elaborate effects, and the make-up on display here is very impressive. While the devil on my shoulder is telling me to look away, I feel like morbid curiosity will win out in the end.

Sexy Beasts premieres on Netflix on July 21. Buckle up, folks. It's bound to be a real circus of events.
