Ooh, what’s the angle?

Sometimes I wish I lived in the USA. You guys have so many more wedding shows than we do!

I have to admit, I’m going to watch it and see how it is.

 

It’s not a wedding show though, it’s about a polygamist man with 3 wives, and 13 children between them

It’s a ‘reality show’ following a husband and his polygomist family.

If you’ve ever watched ‘Big Love’ on HBO…you should get it.

Personally, my feelings are to each his own.  However, I also feel that TLC whose initials stand for The Learning Channel has lately seriously sunk to the bottom of the barrel. What exactly are we learning from the majority of the shows they air?

I do not know what to think either.  I don’t know if we will try to watch this or not; I know it won’t be on our must watch list.  Those girls amaze me “Of course I want my husband having sex with another woman!”  I know I could not live that lifestyle, that’s for sure.

I know it’s the “reality” version of Big Love, but nothing about polygyamy sits right with me.  I know these women say they’re happy, but are they really?  It’s just a weird form of the religion to me.

I don’t thank I can stand to NOT watch it. I’m just too curious about it! I will totally tune in just to appease my curiosity. I can’t imagine sharing my husband but they are rasied to be prepared for that !

I’m trying really hard to imagine how they can be “ok” with this lifestyle, but I just don’t get it.  It will be very interesting to see how life is for this family and how they justify it as “normal.”  I’ll definitely be tuning in though because I’m quite curious.

I’m a huge fan of HBO’s “Big Love” but not sure if i’m gonna watch it or not. I too agree the TLC has really sunk straight to the bottom. The Duggers, The Gosselins, Quints by Surprise, Hoarders, LA Ink…..the only thing i’ve learned from LA Ink is that i DON’T want to look or smell like Kat Von D. Ewwwww.

Honestly, I really enjoy big love on HBO, so I might try to catch the first one. It looks interesting enough. We will see what it’s really about.

I’ll probably watch it out of pure curiosity. I def do not agree with it bc i could never share my husband but I want to see they’re point of view and how they’re ok with this! I have a feeling the phrase “to each their own” will be used alot on this thread

I can not wait to watch the show either. I am curious to know if there is real drama between the wives; not the its her turn to cook drama but the its my turn to sleep with him drama.

I am just confused. I thought that polygymist have their own sects and communities and home school their children. I didn’t know they did reality TV shows.

I really don’t know anything about the lifestyle of polygamist but I just remember that major incident (I believe it was last summer) when the government took away some of the children.
