"I loved Love Island, and I don't know why," Ben Boskovich says of CBS' adaptation of the hit British reality dating show. "I could sit here and try to dig deep. I could type through it and hopefully land on a great response when people ask me why I've stayed up late making sure I'm caught up each weekend. But deep isn't really Love Island's thing. So in true Islander form, maybe I can chalk it up to 'looking for a real connection' with a television program that doesn't last much longer than the finale. Or maybe this imperfect TV turbine that effortlessly sucked me came with a significant benefit: Not once was a political conversation aired—it was a genuine escape. Who among us doesn't need some form of that right now?" ALSO: Producers didn't exploit Love Island's stars: Is it the healthiest network dating reality show ever?
