Claim to Fame

Exactly what is this family's claim to fame? The parents keep having sex and popping out kids? Wow! Do people really find that to be impressive? I think it is the height of conceit to think that you have to replicate yourself 18 times. Someone please explain what is so wonderful about this situation.

I find it to be rather embarrassing. I think even the older kids are starting to be embarrassed by the whole situation. The little ones have no idea what is going on.

I don't understand why some people, such as Meredith Viera, think this is laudable. I got the impression, when I saw Matt Lauer pass them by, that Matt Lauer understands exactly what these people are doing. I think it's rather gross. It's bad enough they exist, now they have to make a tv series out of it.

Gee... look how we can herd everybody around. Look how we can prepare meals for an army. Look how we can run an industrial laundry. Look how we have a uni-sister and uni-brother clothes closet. They stand on a street in NYC and let everyone stare at them.

They sit there and grin and announce that they're gonna keep popping them out -- as long as they can. And Jim Bob always looks so damned proud of himself!

I really do feel sorry for those kids. Not only don't they have their own clothes -- they don't even have their own initials!

Big Family Meets Big Apple & Duggars Do New York (Sept. 30, 2008)

I think the first two episodes of the Duggar series were some of the most boring tv I have ever seen. We watched them walk, ride on a bus, ride on an airplane, wait for an airplane, eat, weigh luggage, drag luggage, remove and put on shoes, and SMILE. We watched Jim Bob try to hail a cab with a fistful of money -- that was truly embarrassing to watch. We also heard Jim Bob say that they weren't robbed or mugged because there were probably too many of them. What a doofus! How backward and simple can you be?

The New Yorkers weren't a lot brighter... especially the policewoman who jumped out of a police van and asked them if they were the "family from tv who had 20 kids or something."

Then the Duggars took a move from the Gosselins and gave out pictures! We can all be happy that they didn't ask for $20 for each picture.

Did anyone else notice that more "personal" pictures were taken with a "Duggar cam"? TV cameras were not allowed into their hotel rooms. This does not make a lot of sense, considering that tv cameras were present when Michelle had her 16th? 17th? babies.

QUESTION: Why didn't the Duggars do anything in New York besides seeing Central Park, the NBC studios, and Times Square? What about the Statue of Liberty? Ellis Island? The incredible FREE museums? I would guess that Bill Gothard doesn't think these places are important. "Can you say immigrants?" "Can you say Picasso?"

This series will not succeed or continue very long.
