Snark Should Be Multiplied, Not Divided: General Show Discussion

Do we know for sure that SW is going to Discovery Plus?  Honestly, I subscribe to enough streaming services right now, I refuse to do another.  Just leave us snarky COL's alone and keep them on regular old TLC!  

However, for the brief time that I cut my cable cord and couldn't watch TLC, I was the one who held my breath and pouted until y'all up in these threads started doing regular recaps, which were always much better than actually watching the show, so hopefully a few of us will be able to watch this trainwreck continue to careen through Flagstaff and report back.

Since the show started and I was only watching on Netflix then, I started buying the seasons from itunes.  They don't cost that much and I can watch them anytime I want.  I already have Netflix and Hulu with 3 of us watching them it's worth the cost.

In last season(14), near the end they were looking at houses and they only showed a scene here and there about the "buying/renting" endless debate between Kody and Robyn's polar opposite views of God's Great Plan for the Family. They showed a lot about the debate...however very little about the actual buying.

In this season just past(15), there is only one little scene where Kody is at Robyn's house when the call comes to tell them the lender has closed and they now own the house. The COVID storyline took up most of the season.

I have always wondered exactly how long they paid rental fees on those 4 U-hauls parked on the property the whole time as well as how many days they had to pay a daily rental on the house they were trying to buy.

As I remember it, the house that Robyn was "forced" to buy because God was too busy with more pressing matters than finding her a rennal, came fully furnished.  I wondered whatever became of her throne chairs?

I’m hoping they’re in one of the storage trucks at Coyote Pass and Janelle takes Robyn’s to make an outdoor “throne” she can use with her squatty potty stool.  She can chop Kody’s chair up for a bonfire next season as all the fools meet up where angels singk.  The gang will still be sitting around talking about their fillings, moving, and putting up their walls.

I’ll try to recall and see if I can view it again.  My memory must be rusty, because I thought Robyn’s house was in an unfamiliar area......I recently saw something that led me to believe otherwise online.  Also, there’s a post over on the Janelle thread that confirms where it’s located.  I’m being vague here because I think there are rules about posting where realty stars live and wanted to avoid doing that.  I was just surprised.

It did come fully furnished, but I think they planned to get rid of the stuff that came with the house and move Robyn's stuff in. I don't remember what plan, if any, they had for the stuff that came with the house though as I recall, the decor was not to my taste.

For what it's worth: I'm in Europe and SW was (and still is) on TLC which had its own streaming service called Dplay. Dplay changed to Discovery Plus a couple of months ago. And most shows, including sister wives came along.

So, if it happened here, I'd say it's a safe bet it will happen in the US too.

Are the Browns connected to the polygamysts who live at Rockland Ranch in Utah, from that documentary "One husband and three wives" ??

Share this post


Link to post

TLC has not confirmed, but it looks as if season 16 will premiere early in 2022 (January/February).  

Article here

Quote

The future of the Brown family seemed up in the air after the Season 15 finale of TLC's "Sister Wives." According to TV Shows Ace, tensions seemed extremely high within the polygamist clan, with husband Kody Brown even saying, "I am in polygamy hell. I can't take it anymore." During the season, fans got to see the Browns adjusting to their new life in Flagstaff, Arizona, living separately in temporary homes, according to Series Date. Adding in the COVID-19 pandemic really put a strain on the entire family's relationship, and it had some viewers worried that this could be the end of "Sister Wives" altogether. 

While nothing has been officially announced for Season 16 of "Sister Wives," Mykelti Padron, daughter of Kody and his third wife, Christine Brown, hinted that another season was in fact happening in an Instagram Live back in April (via Showbiz Cheatsheet). TLC has not confirmed anything, but there are plenty of rumors as to when the show will return, who will be in the cast, and even some of the drama you can expect to see the Brown family tackle.

Don't forget that Mykelti mentioned that her home birth had been filmed.  They are so far behind in presenting the happenings in Brownville, the child will be able to narrate the couch sessions herself.

I did forget that!  Now that FT is no longer a "banker" they'll be back, and I hope Mykelti didn't bellow in a tub like Maddie did X 2.  Maddie might want to show off their new house, too.

It is my fervent hope that Tony doesn't climb into the tub with Mykelti as Caleb did with Maddie.  The water displacement would cause a tidal wave in the bathroom.  

I also think that Mykelti will have enough respect for the viewing audience not to "pull a Maddie" by reading a few pamphlets on the birth procedure and condescendingly explain her new found terminology to all.

The problem is that there are many potential stories but the tend to pick one (see: moving to Flagstaff) and then beating it to dead for 10 episodes, repeating the same issues ad nauseum. 

I think they are hoping all of these riveting ideas will each buy them a new season.

But as been said, the birthin' drama looks pretty stupid when the kid is old enough to drive.

Don't forget the numerous flashbacks to previous seasons! I guess they add those in case we weren't paying attention the first time around.
Either that, or they're added as a way to throw some more shade on the Brown's shenanigans.

Which potential stories are you thinking of?  I honestly cannot think of anything exciting there that could fill a whole season….

The move to Flagstaff probably was God’s gift in their eyes as they could escape the financial drama of those expensive houses and offer TLC an ‘interesting’ new season.
This family typically creates a drama when there is none, not just for ratings, but because they can (see their book). No matter what the costs. Other than that, they’re just stupid, annoying and boring! (Yet I still watch….)

I think Kootie likes drama and constant moves because nobody has time to think about their predicament and what they really want in life and from their partner(s). They are always reacting to some crisis, not planning for what they really want.

I was being sarcastic.  In Kootie's tiny little brain, every single breath he takes must be fascinating to we, the viewers (not that I am one, I haven't watched since season 1).  So I'm sure that a trip to the grocery store goes on his list of "must see TV" and has to be scripted and filmed. 

He can't have the crew miss catching those magical moments where he approaches total strangers, puffs out his chest, and announces loudly that he has FOUR WIVES.  I would kill to have someone tell him that they don't give a flying crap and walk away.

This reminded me of the pic of Kootie wearing a high ponytail and knee brace showing his fans out in public how he can balance on one foot: https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/05/15/15/13531738-7032467-image-m-7_1557931065265.jpg

Let's not forget that last season Kody gave us the gift of knowing how to properly use toilet paper to wipe our nether regions during the pandemic.  He even gave a  demonstration of the appropriate amount of squares to be used for cleaning the different areas.  

That's a lesson most other reality shows would never think to do.  

It's the little things we learn from this show that give it life 😂

I'm not even gonna lie – I spent way too much of my day (i.e. some of it) trying to figure out what on Earth they'll show in the next season.

They're not going to build on Prairie Plague Pass; the wives refuse to live together and now Kody is pretending he never wanted to; we're still in the middle of a worldwide pandemic so no one is really doing anything; last time we heard, Kody was whining that polygamy is Hell...

I'm both anticipating and dreading the upcoming shitshow.

Except that at this time last year, they were all traveling and pretty much disregarding pandemic precautions except Robyn and, therefore, Kootie). The only essential travel was for Ysabel's surgery, but Christine went to Phoenix (to resell inventory that lesser mortals couldn't unload) and Utah, Janelle went to NC and Meri was back and forth to the B&B. Meri just attended a huge gathering of ugly-cheap clothes sellers in Anaheim. I suspect if she's vaccinated she will also go on the next cruise. 

Heck I have friends who are planning to cruise this fall (I forget where - I tend to tune that sort of things out as I HATE cruises. They are breeding grounds for disease, they pollute the oceans and disrupt the daily lives of ocean-dwelling species, the US bailed them out even though most are not US-based companies etc etc. It is a disgusting way to travel, all those people in tiny rooms, gorging themselves at buffets and getting drunk and raucous. Ughhh.)

I mean really, the snark practically writes itself with these people.

I am just about to re-watch the episode where Robyn drops her cookie on the floor in front of a room full of children.  I cringed so hard during the preview that I think I pulled a back muscle - but this time I am going to re-watch and try and catch the faces of the other kids and the wives, while Robyn sobs to Kody's teenage sons and daughters that she wishes Kody would've been her "first."  EWWWWWWW but also LOLOLOLOL.

Another goldmine of misdirected emotions is when Maddie is engaging in the first tub birth.  Meri had gone to the airport to pick up Mariah and Audge and they came bouncing in to Janelle's living room in giddy high spirits.  Meri acted bewildered as to the whereabouts of the rest, (she couldn't ask the camera crew I guess).  They flounced out and returned to Meri's house to hatch conspiracy theories about being excluded, as IF Mariah and Audge would have also been welcomed to witness this momentous occasion, providing a chorus of "Ewwws" and "Glad it's not me's".

 If Meri had thought to shoot one of them a text saying "hey, we're back" and Maddie had said "you can come over if you want, but leave Mariah and Audge at your house, I don't even know Audge", could you just imagine the hostility from Meri.

Just another entry in Meri's binder of slings and arrows that she maintains to remind herself of how mistreated she is by the others.

 I really cannot really see this show dragging on for many more seasons, especially if Prairie Plague Palace or Prairie Plague Village is not happening. They have completely fallen apart and there's nothing left of this ambitious, huge happy family.  

I'm quite sure that either this season or the next is going to be the last on the Kody Klan and shall be used as a springboard for a spinoff featuring either Christine (surviving outside the polygamous world) or Meri (rejected wife starts own successful B&B during her enduring midlife crisis)

I highly doubt they'll consider Janelle for a spinoff (literally nothing happening there). And Robyn and Kody?? Well, in the end, they're just like any other unhappily married couple of which there are plenty in this world. And who would want to watch that?

I had to check the date on the article, because the description sounded exactly like last season. So basically nothing has changed and they will just keep bitching and moaning without actually changing anything they are doing.

 

Precisely.  This is old news that we've heard about on social media and, honestly, old news for the entire world.  We've all dealt with (and endured in the entire country) Covid and its impact on everything.  Do they think their issues are any more riveting than any of ours? 

Personally, I think trying to build a season on what we've been dealing with for 18 months is just stupid with Covid Fatigue rendering people weary of hearing about it.  I see no point in rehashing that kind of crap.

Christine's not going anywhere so don't even try to pretend the "boiling point" will lead to anything.

I'm tired of reality shows trying to use Covid as a storyline. Just stop. Get Christine and Meri to leave Kody (Janelle is hopeless at this point). That drama I would totally tune in for. 

I would like to see a side-by-side of Janelle's RV versus Robyn's mansion. Then have Kody keep trying to say all his wives are treated equally. Say what you will about Meri, but she would never have agreed to an RV with no electrical or plumbing hookups on the prairie land.
