Sight And Sound, GWOP Welcomes DWOP
Hello everyone! Happy well, its Tuesday. The baby is NOT napping, so this might be quick for me to add to later. I was e-mailed a few times as to why my review isn't up RIGHT after the show. Well first, I'm not like those crazies over at GWOP that are literally blogging 15 minutes into the show, with their notebooks in their hands. You know, the ones that SWEAR that they have had enough with the freebies and damage control and will NEVER watch again. Until next week. No Monday is chaotic enough for me as it is with the kids, homework and getting them to bed. By the time the show comes on I'm exhausted and eating my dinner at 9pm.
So by the next day I'm excited to see what everyone thought over at GDNOP and I read the reviews there before blogging. I DONT go to the other site, its all making fun of Kate for no reason than to make themselves feel superior and Anonymous, who posts every 5 minutes 50 times. I thought the show last night was awesome and the venue looked really cool. I am not overly religious, but if you check out the place HERE, you'd want to go see this show regardless. That show made some of the Vegas shows Ive seen look down right plain! So let me start off by saying those of you that live in the state of PA, how lucky are you? I swear all summer I take 3 hour trips to go to all the cool places they have for kids to go to. And you wonder why Jon & Kate wanted to take their kids to all of them? It would cost $222 for 2 adults and 8 kids (on a weekday!) to see that show. And you wonder why they gladly accept freebies? I need to move to that state STAT.
I promised not bash those haters anymore, but I feel the poor Duggars will get their fill from them soon. What with them now getting their OWN weekly series, the haters of children exploited on TV will have a field day with this family. Please don't be offended when I say they don't even compare, and that this family seems a bit "strange" to me. If you get where I'm going with this FINE, if not its OK. Us East Coasters are a bit more rough around the edges and thicker skinned, so it concerns me that the pitch forks will be out once again when this series starts. What really bothers me is that its apparent TLC is putting any boring multiple family on now right before J&K to keep the ratings up. A reader tried to explain to me that the Kids by the Dozen are different families, but I swear they all seem to look the same. Am I correct saying these kids stand out less to me than the sextuplets do? Since they do not have their own series YET, they havn't been blessed with their own personal hate site, brought to you by the makers of GWOP. "Where we get the dirt by bringing you the hurt." It will be interesting to see bloggers go to both sites with their comments about how these families choose to raise their kids. And what will happen when ALL these families get weekly series? Does the negativity of children on TV hold up when EVERYBODY wants a piece of the action? Time will tell us very soon, when the Duggar's new series "17 and counting" premiers on TLC October 1st.
