I found last night's show with the family trekking 1,400 miles off to Kansas to meet another polygamist family rather strange. The Browns emphasized they did not know them (wonder how they even found them), yet in today's era of phones, emails, texts, Skype and social media I would have thought some initial contact would have been made beforehand. To take this trip in three vehicles with so many children in winter conditions made no sense. What was the rush that they couldn't have waited for nicer weather, other than it was spring break for the kids? To pull into camping grounds in complete darkness is absurd.
The Kansas "family" consists of one wife with nine!!! children and the other woman with none, certainly indicating possible fertility problems. I have concerns for this new family who are now "out" to the public and what problems it might cause them at home, particularly for the children in school. They all seem like lovely people, down to earth, and their children were adorable. The children are obviously being raised with good values and manners, the only strange exception being having to go thorough role call as in Sound of Music. I wonder if the family is auditioning for the next TLC reality series.
I can't see Wife no. 2 of that family they visited hanging around much longer if she can't have kids. It must be awkward, by the way Wife no. 1 explained it. It was painful to watch her discuss her nine kids, with wife no. 2 having none.
Did they say what part of Kansas the family was from?
There's no place like home!
Springfield, "Misery" . . . not Kansas. The Lamberts they went to would have been the one in Ozark.
Punkin: I thought the same thing! Unless he was trying to pull off a Japanese Warrior look, or maybe copy Truly........... And the way he described the Seder was totally incorrect. Butchering the Hebrew prayer was even worse. It made no sense at all. Such a Douchebag Bafoon!!
All things beautiful do not have to be full of color to be noticed; in
life that which is unnoticed has the most power.
I thought the parents seemed to have realized that being at odds with each other was not good for their franchise right now. They sucked it up and pretended to be on good terms. I get it. They focused on their great kids and that's okay with me. I like the kids, for the most part.
I will say that for the first time I saw how in the beginning they were crazy over Kody in a romantic way, except for Janelle, who said it was more of a friendship.
I thought the ending was pretty weird. A guess they consider it a cliffhanger to see if Robyn is pregnant or not.
Thanks Maveno, that's very nice of you. But the credit has to go to the Browns, they give us so much. Take this last episode (or the last one I saw, can't keep them all straight). I couldn't believe I was watching four adult, relatively intelligent women tell us, with straight faces, that one of the most wonderful things about Kody was that when he gives you the googly eyes you know they are just for you. And all four of them said it!!! Ladies, get a grip. There ain't no body parts on Kody that are just for you. By definition, the four of you share it all, including the googly eyes.
And it sounds like Kody was the belle of the ball at polygamy functions. Every low-self-esteem brainwashed from birth girl wanted to be his wife. But that shrewd Christine, she called her shot and waited until slot #3 was open. Of course, it sounds like she also thought she would be the last wife, the one who completed Kody and the family. Hey, you win some you lose some. But, heeyy, at least the hair matched the face, or the face matched the hair. Whatever shallow, Kody-ego-stroking comment she made. And those sly producers left us hanging on future family additions. Fortunately, I can do Robyn math:
Kody + money from investors = baby. Let's hope they give it a name of significance, like Dolla Bill Brown. But they'll probably go one of two ways: an obscure Biblical name like Apphia or a city in Colorado like Boulder. Boulder Brown sounds pretty good actually.
Just wait until the 5th wife comes along and see how Robyn behaves.
There's no place like home!
