It's because they have no exposure. On a much older episode one of the boys was talking about the family bus and he said something about what they do to keep busy doesn't include TV or movies or that "silliness" - they don't watch cartoons, they don't read comic books, no america's funny videos or pratical jokes on each other. It's sad because even if they went with something Christian like Veggie Tales they'd get to see jokes and things that are silly and they don't do that so it's like their humor gene is completely shut down.
On the other hand - Did I see Michael running around the house wearing a magician cape and waving a stick around like a magic wand? I don't know where he learned that but I fully approve and hope JB never notices!
This was not "Jills Special Delivery" - this was a rehash of the births and babies that they already rehashed for three hours the night before in the babies over the years special plus a good dose of stroking MEChelles baby making ego. It would have been so easy for TLC to stretch Jill's final weeks of pregnancy, the extra long labor, the c-section and the homecoming into two hours; that story is more than enough and probabaly wouldn't have needed filler. I kept fast forwarding, watched 5 minutes, fast forward again, watch 5 minutes again and when the DVR said there was 20 minutes left I started to think it was a total fake out, that at the end she'd say her water broke and we'd get a to be continued.
If TLC likes re-living past events and stretching things out so much I can only assume we'll get all the other footage of Jill's labor in the special two part episode they'll have when Anna's next miracle arrives..........where the actual birth will be shown in the last three minutes of the episode. But not to worry because we'll get all of Anna's labor footage plus an extra special call back to Jill and Isreal in the five hour six night event that will be Jessa's birth experience.
