Sad to say that in an age of seeing young men and women (our soldiers in Iraq and in other parts of the world) die for freedom of press and movement that we have this show to remind of why we look so stupid to the rest of the world. The fact that on the very first show we saw or rather a failed attempt by the producers to show us that the 3 sons may have character and some level of individualism rather than being sponges of their parent's success. Instead we had to witness Rod's son fighting and arguing and than gambling badly (with comments like “it’s only money”) makes you appreciate him as the real nob (English term for a person with little or no brains) and then Spelling's kid tattooing himself as some form of respect to his father- whilst still partying, was incredible!!!!
What is reality TV these days- do we need to experience more junk like Gotti, Flavour and I love New York to make us appreciate that Jerry Springer was not bad really? One wonders what an A&E Christmas party would be like, i.e.a room full of egos and hot air and very little else? Please the only remedying show is the Gene Simmons family show where one appreciates that the kids and family have some stability and the kids are smart, funny and down to earth!!
