  • The Watcher

    I tried watching this show.
    WTF???
    Failed to find any entertainment value.
    What’s wrong with these people? Who’s watching this crap? Is the whole country really getting this stupid?

    @The Watcher

    Sometimes I think it’s the “it’s such a trainkwreck I can’t look away” factor. Much like Honey Boo Boo or Jersey Shore.

    Why does Willie always wear a headband, usually the same patriotic one?

  • Johnson

    The show is awesome….its hilarious! You know it is all staged but the Robertsons are crazy and funny at the same time.

  • :D

    Scripted or not, this show is hilarious. There’s a marathon playing and I’ve been watching it for the last few hours LOL.

    @The Watcher: That’s uncalled for. Obviously everyone has different tastes and different senses of humor and you should really open your mind a little more and learn to accept that, rather than bashing people for liking stuff you don’t like. Immature much? I think so. I love this show, yet I also love other shows/movies like The Big Bang Theory and Napoleon Dynamite. There are different types of humor, and I suppose you’re just failing to appreciate the type that Duck Dynasty offers, which is fine.

    Such a fun show!! I can so relate to these folks – you cannot make this stuff up. It reminds me of folks I saw growing up – having fun in life and living it to the full. Oh and by the way “Watcher,” I and many others who appreciate this show are highly educated. Yes many people live this way and love it. (minus the squirrel and frog eating that is!!!) What’s wrong with you? You should broaden your horizons.
