The Beards are Back

On the first day of this media class our professor had us go around and share our favorite TV show, and  why it was our favorite. I went into instant panic mode. In that moment I became utterly aware of the amount of TV I watch, and the prospect of picking a favorite was terrifying. I needed to pick something that not everyone would choose, but it also couldn't be something lame that I would be judged for, like anything recently produced by ABC Family. Sorry. 

Gilmore Girls? Downton? Chopped? Buffy? Prison Break? 24? Parenthood? Beauty and the Beast? The Office? White Collar? Lie to Me? Modern Family? Community? Sherlock? This list is getting embarrassing, and I think you get my point, so let's move on.

As my turn approached I knew their was only one thing to do: I had to go with my most recent obsession.


Duck Dynasty. No judgment.


Before we go any further, let me tell you that this show includes a man named Mountain Man. Yes.

I have to admit, when Spence first stopped on this show and told me it was about a bunch of rednecks who became millionaires off of duck hunting calls, I had my doubts. Serious doubts. But it was probably seven seconds later that I had my first laugh attack/ab work out, and I have been hooked ever since. 

This show is hilarious. This family is so. ridiculously. redneck. I feel like watching this show is a cultural experience, it shows me a world I never knew existed. Even though these people are millionaires you can tell their money hasn't changed them. They are a strong Christian family and each episode has legit family-oriented messages. It's great.

  2. It's so weird to me that you probably don't know how much my Alabama life that show is. Like, seriously, it reminds me SO. MUCH. of home. I HAVE A LIFE YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT!!!! A bunch of us gathered around an iPad a couple of days ago and watched an episode. :)
