  • Absolutely The Best Show On TV!

    My husband and I watch this show with our 3 young children. I am not interested in watching other shows because why would I want to suggest that our family watch a show that destroys our individual and family character by putting junky ideas and junky language into our head? This show is one of the few shows available that inspires us to do good deeds, be kind and patient and gentle and merciful and exercise self-control, and to love one another. The Duggar books take it a step further and inspire us to be more serious about our faith. I am very grateful for such excellent role models.moreless

    I would consider myself a feminist and an atheist and pretty progressive, yet for some reason I LOVE watching this family! It definitely is not a lifestyle I would chose, but I just think they're fascinating. They all seem pretty genuinely happy with their life choices and the show never has drama like a typical reality show (the Bachelor, etc). It focuses solely on their family and their journey through life.

    I think they are a great family who just happen to have different views than me, but no reason to hate on them! They're successful and very level headed and haven't had the typical fall-out that reality stars have.moreless
  • Used to like this show now it's hard to watch

    6.0
    The show was good when it was about juggling life with so many kids. I enjoyed it when they showed how they organized their home, cooking for so many & budgeting. It has now become super corny & their obsession with courtship is awkward to watch. The entire family is all giggles & grins because someone is courting. Strange! I don't care how many kids someone has as long as they can financially & emotionally support them. I don't judge them by their beliefs or rules either. They are not hurting anyone. I do judge them by how they act about courting, girls vs boys, how Daddy or the husband is the ruler. It's their life they can live it the way they want but I don't watch for those reasons. I want the older format back.moreless
