    Here Comes Honey Boo Boo!

    Anyone watch this show?

    What is your opinion? A tribute to self confidence no matter who you are, or child exploitation?

    From what I've read about it, this show is not for me. What's your take on it, Blue Dog?

    I'm so depressed about all the stuff that gets on television INSTEAD OF SKATING. This past week they've been announcing on the USA cable network that they will now be showing three hours of wrestling a night. Three hours of men with hair extensions and oiled muscles bellowing and throwing one another to the ground. Last night two of the three major broadcast networks had football all night. And now stuff like this family who should be conducting their lives in the privacy of their own home. All I can say is, if I hadn't found GS, I would be in a deep decline.

    here's the thing - there's an audience for these shows/sports. and it's bigger, and conducts more $$... and it's far cheaper than what the ISU is charging for allowing coverage...

    I understand that, Toni, though it doesn't make that easier to bear. Wouldn't you think that the ISU would figure out in 2012 what Henry Ford understood in 1908: that if you make a product cheaper, more people buy it, and you get more profit in the long run....

    I dunno what their issue is...

    but, I guess since growing up we couldn't get ABC on our tv (reception sucked) I am used to the "lack of coverage".

    It's a great show, Olympia. Not for entertainment value, but it's almost like an anthropology lesson. People in Southern Georgia definitely have a culture all their own, and even a language all their own. Their English is almost...Shakespearean!

    But, if you're going to take a look at it from a different standpoint, it reeks of child exploitation. It seems like the mother is peddling her kids for their backward ways. She's using her kids to get people to laugh at her mothering skills. They are a loving family, and they encourage having a good self-esteem, but it just...

    And the cooking of food like sketti...

    That's not the worst pronounciation of spaghetti I've ever seen.

    My second cousin used to pronounce it piss-sketti.

    LOL but Doris, on this show, it's not real spaghetti. It's noodles, butter, and catsup.
