  1. It was suggested we start a new topic on the matter so here it is. @Tielsmomma I don't think anyone here has a problem with people who legitimately receive disability. My mom does and the limited income is her only income due to her disabilities. It's hard. I think, at least for me, the problem is watching someone who ate themselves into this situation receiving the money and continuing to eat themselves this way. All the fast food etc. All the manipulation as well. As we've learned with Pauline recently, she's a grifter and many on the show I believe are.

    Shoes cost a lot of money which is something our Wilders don't have a lot of and yes, our ancestors really went shoeless. At one time shoes were for the rich. And for many, hunting is best done barefoot.

    Finally have time to watch the finale and have to say I really wish production would step back. I hope next season isn't worse than this as far as them overstepping goes. Colbert has safety harnesses (we've watched him use them and he's adamant about safety), why didn't he use them in the scenes of putting on the rafters? Oh, gotta be production push so he can involve the neighbors. Annoying. Tony and Amelia getting the pigs. They knew they didn't have room for them and never mentioned pigs before this season. Why now and why the large number they got? Oh, gotta be production push so we can see them start to contemplate buying more land. With what money? We aren't suppose to know they are talking to cameras and making money from the show. I mean they had to sell all their wares at the farmer's market to afford the pigs, how could they afford land by selling jars of dried mushrooms?!?! :P Last year Tony and Amelia wanted to make babies (probably another production push) this year it's pigs. Looks like next year will be a hunt for a larger plot of land. Unless a plot next door is available but going by the arial views it doesn't look like it. ETA: Oh so we'll see them attempting to co-op and I can tell you now it wont work. Tony and Amelia have their own way of doing things although I am sure production would love to show us it not working with the co-op.

    And I don't know if you noticed, but they're now all even repeating the same lines. Tony and Thorn and Colbert basically all said the exact same thing about hunting. I believe it was Tony and Thorn who even used the same wording. I want to get back to the boring day to day stuff. Boring to them because it's their day but not boring to me because it's not mine and not the way I do things. We've gotten eye full in previous seasons that's for sure. I don't have an issue with his daughter being around him though. Nakedness doesn't have to be a sexual thing. She's learning about nature and dad has different parts than mom etc. And for her it's just normal/natural.

    Someone above said he was from another outdoorsy show. He's just not my thing. So much so, that much like the last seasons with the ones I didn't like, I am now fast forwarding through his scenes.

    Still watching the same episode and paused when Colbert was looking at the tax bill. I knew he had acres but didn't know it was almost 44 acres. That explains the distance he travels sometimes. I'd wondered if he was on public land or someone else's land before but now I know, it's mostly his that we see. ETA: Looked like his tax bill was 106 and some change.

    I agree. Am trying to get another episode watched (home sick from work), the one where Tony and Amelia finally butcher the doe. The narrator just said Tony and Amelia took a 3 day trip to the beach for the salt. WTF. It's a 7 hour drive each way = 14 hours. And say an entire day to boil that damn water so that's day 2. Where's day 3? On that episode they made it seem like it all happened in one day. And again, where did they get the money for the gas to drive 14 hours? Production is completely ruining a great show. I'll give it through the episodes of this season that are on my dvr but if the over involvement continues I'll going to have to tap out.

    Oh and anyone else notice that the baking sheet Tony and Amelia were scooping the salt onto was brand new? Not a scratch on that teflon coating. And as earth and health conscious as Amelia is I don't think she uses teflon coated pans, at least not regularly.

    I'm finally watching the going to the ocean episode and like the rest of you, I have to call bs. In the time it took Tony and Amelia to drive to the coast the meat would have spoiled. They live approximately 7hours from the coast. The gas it took to drive to the coast in that old truck cost way more than a bag of salt from Walmart. I really hope production doesn't continue down this road of over involvement. It will drive me away. @Pepper Mostly I'm not digging the new guy either. As I said above they just need to leave us with our lovable current 3 and stop trying to find a 4th or even a 5th as in a prior season. The 4th never works out.

    Welcome to the forum, Mo.

    Exactly. And the hostility the dude had over someone else potentially moving in, and then scavenging from someone else's plot was just wrong. And came across as scripted. Especially when he acted like he didn't know people had been there, but then he did, but then he didn't. Like he forgot his lines. Sorry but when whoever was building that big structure, you'd hear it throughout the area and supposedly it was only 1/4 mile from dude's treehouse. No way he didn't know when it was built if he'd been there the entire time. Almost reminded me of that show with the three families that were going to live wild but they all had issues. Sad, all these shows meld together they are so unoriginal and fake. I, too, will stick with our cast. I find it funny though they are still trying to find a 4th. Each season we've gotten a new 4th, they just don't stick. Keep our 3 and give up on the 4th if the current guy doesn't work out.

    This is actually the only show I really still watch besides things like GoT and TWD. I tried The Boonies when it first came out but it was just another overly produced show much to my dismay.

    The show is back for its late summer season. We see Thorn has moved to Georgia. Wonder how hard that was now that he wont get to see Briar very often. Colbert is Colbert :). We also have a new guy. That's really as far as I've gotten into the first episode of the new season. Hope to finish it later.

    Life Below Zero

    They usually alternate between Glenn and Eric/Martha each episode or two. In the earlier seasons we saw Eric for the first half of the season and then Glenn the last half because Eric wasn't available to film due to his guiding business. That said, while I still love most of the cast, I am just over this show. It's the same stuff each season. It's great but it's just not for me any more. This isn't the first show I've cut out of my roster and wont be the last. I hope the cast had a great time filming and y'all have a great time watching.
  15. Rob and Tara come to an understanding about his relationship with her parents; Rob surprises Ro with a romantic getaway to celebrate their anniversary; while celebrating their anniversary, Craig and Brandon receive news that leaves them speechless. **As noted last week, there is no mention of Adonis and Erika in the description for this week.
  16. That's how I was with season 1. I read recaps of what happened in the last couple of episodes and read a recap of what happened on Watch What Happened Live with them. It took a lot for me to try the show again for the second season. That wasn't the surrogate, it was Brandon's sister who miscarried the baby she was carrying for her and her partner. The finale bits were filmed last winter/early spring.

    And I just checked and he's made his page private.
  18. They didn't do a reunion for season 2 either. Season 1 got a WWHL episode and that was about it.

    Newlyweds: The First Year

    Bravo posted news about Ro's pregnancy. I will include the link to read the entire thing in the spoiler text area.
  21. I am puking and laughing at the episode starting with Realtor Rob and Tara in the "Passion" suite. GROSS!! Summary of their scene - "I'm an insecure jackass who doesn't like your family but somehow am afraid you'll leave me because your family doesn't like me" or something along those lines. The scene where Tara goes to her sister, I totally recognize her sister. She's been an agent (not one of the stars of) at various properties on Million Dollar Listing LA. Did anyone else see the look of shock on Tara's face when her sister said she stopped pretending to be the perfect wife? Tara knows she can't ever do that. If we believe the story Rob is telling his friend (I'm on the fence) then editing is having fun and making him the bad guy and not showing us what her family is really doing. That is believable because a) It's Bravo and b) it's a show about the newlyweds, not their extended families. I am so glad Tara's sister told her that SHE is responsible for the boundaries and what is acceptable and what isn't. Also it looks as though the sister unfortunately used the same surgeon for her boobs. Tara walks in the kitchen, sees the coffee cup on the table and asks if it's his. Who else's would it be, production?! I hate when people do that, ask the obvious. WHOAH! He apologized. I am going to faint. Also, this episode has proven that their remodel timeline was bullshit. I will forever think that was storyline. They are realtors, they know reno takes a long time, especially on a house that big. Brandon and Craig - Ok I love these two but I just don't need to see anyone's ass being sugared. Another GROSS!! moment. Happy for them that the meds worked and Craig has viable sperm again. I did chuckle that it took Brandon only 4+ minutes to get that sample from him. It was TMI but funny TMI. I just love them. Love the scene talking about Brandon being a cryer and then all the flashbacks of how difficult their year has been. OOOOH Bree's pregnant!!! YAY. Teary eyed viewer. Loved the joke about her turning femme. Oh sad, she miscarried. Rob and Ro - fingers crossed for nothing gross. Oh yeah, hotel stay coming up. Happy times. I love how goofy Rob is. My husband is too and we've been together 19yrs as of later this month. I also don't think he was really asleep, I think he was just having more fun and pretending. I think they, along with Brandon and Craig, got the least air time this episode because they are the normal couples. Other than their poor arguing abilities they are happy and in love and no drama. Ah! They are having a baby!! Adonis and Erica - watching it since this is the last episode. Erika is deciding to go to Seattle. I'm trying to listen to Erika talk to Adonis but am extremely distracted by her shirt. It looks like something a design student would work on but in project form, not a finished product. Their conversation just shows how much of a couple they aren't. Even at 5yrs (that's how long they've supposedly been together) there were ways and times that my husband knew me better than I knew myself and if I said what do I like he'd be able to answer. Neither Adonis or Erika herself know what she likes? I noticed during the conversation with her sister she was sitting in a brand new Hyundai Genesis and when she's loading up to go to Seattle she's back to the dumpy looking Mercedes. "Just come back if you want to". Who says that to their wife as she's getting ready to drive away for what could be forever?!?! We get a text update at the end and it said she came back. Of course she did. How else is she paying the bills? I think the trip to Seattle was planned and that her car was in the shop getting checked up, oil changed etc for the long road trip and the Hyundai was her loaner/rental while it was there. Proving that this was just more storyline. So basically they had nothing and production wanted drama and this couple said they'd go along with whatever just to get on tv.
  22. Craig confronts his anxiety over showing affection to Brandon in front of his father; Rob and Ro head to Florida to weight the pros and cons of leaving New York; Rob and Tara's ongoing problems threaten to ruin their romantic trip to San Francisco.

    Ooh in my previous reply I meant to say I thought he was married to another lid, not another pot.

    I believe it was said off camera. Had it been on camera we'd have all jumped all over it at the time. ETA: I also don't think it was said the day of, I think it was said in a conversation after the fact.

    I couldn't find his age anywhere but I vaguely remember them saying something about him being in the mid 30s.
