Best show on TV! It is 180 degrees opposite of Hollywood, which is why it's
awesome! Watch the "real" housewife show of any city you choose, and
you'll hear language that you thought only sailors and truckers used (old
analogies, my apologies to both) you'll see people drinking to excess,
spouses flirting with others, and that's just the warm up. DD is wholesome,
family entertainment. I was shocked the first time I watched and saw them pray
at the end. I thought for sure some anti-religion group would boycott everything
and try and get them taken off the air. I'm glad that A&E has the guts
to stick with the design of the show and not try and mess it up. Watch Phil and
Willie on Youtube. They are the real deal when it comes to preaching.
When will the MISSIONARIES teach the gospel ti these fine folks....they seem
ready to accept
As I drove the family from my Mom's funeral to the airport to return home,
one of my kids asked from the back seat, "Dad, are all your relatives
Hillbillies?"This show encourages me that there might just be
hope for us yet....
I'm a fan of the show. The Christianity aspects do not feel forced or
overly blatant, despite the fact that the main bearded duck-call ceo is a
licensed evangelical preacher. What makes the show such a success is that it
doesn't hide you from the oddball things families do, but rather
accentuates those elements to make a zany experience in a setting that is hard
to match. It doesn't hurt that their success making duck calls has landed
a bunch of people not normally associated with money a fortune, a bit like the
Beverly Hill Billies of today.
@patriotWhat a contrast to the gutter trash Hollywood throws out
there in 90% of the other programming. DD is basically ANTI-LIBERALISM and that
is the best of all!!----------Ironic, considering
Conservatives are more likely to pay of trash: "Utahns, famous
for their wholesomeness and frugality, buy online pornography at higher rates
than the rest of America. That's the conclusion of a Harvard economics
professor who tracked subscriptions to online porn sites." -- Deseret
NewsAs far as Duck Dynasty, I like it. Even as a liberal.
re:spring streetYes respect. I kid my brother and my dad all the
time and at the same time I never degrade them. You can have some fun with your
family and laugh with them and at them all the while showing love and respect
for them. At the end of every episode on DD they ALL sit at the family dinner
table, have a prayer together and then enjoy a fun family dinner together. Where
would America be today if every family did the same? Grandpa-grandma-mom-dad and
the kids eating together. Wow - what a concept. Think about it for a minute, DD
is EVERYTHING the left hates...*Belief in God*Father and
Mother in the home*Family dinners *Hunting*No dysfunctional
family members wow - this show has it all and that is why it is on
top of the ratings with main stream Americans.
Wow. Good people on TV. How long will this last?
I love that real people are getting the money for shows. I am tired of
"professionals" getting so much money and then they have such lousy
values. I started to watch, not cause it appealed to me, but because I decided
to support a show with values, I am hooked now and "Happy Happy Happy".
When is Hollywood going to get a clue and make good TV?
And hear I thought I watched it because its amusing. @patriot"Respect"? Are we watching the same show?
Obviously Thornbirds has never seen Duck Dynasty. Since it is now in its 4th
season with the highest ratings on cable it's not about to fade away any
time soon. FYI, the stars of the show are college educated. That explains part
of the reason why they have made $millions$ selling duck calls.
DD is my favorite show...about all I actually spend time watching on TV and
about the only thing outside of ESPN that is worth watching. No swearing - no
adult humor just down home 'funny' stuff from real people. Yes it is
scripted but the unusual thing about DD and I believe why it is at THE TOP of
the ratings is because it does model the love and respect that most
'real' families show toward one and other in America as well as their
GOD. Husbands love and respect their wives and the kids reciprocate that same
love and respect for their parents. Hunting is shown in it's TRUE light - a
priceless family tradition where the game that is killed is used by the family.
The nightly scene of family prayer and the dinner table is wonderful. What a
contrast to the gutter trash Hollywood throws out there in 90% of the other
programming. DD is basically ANTI-LIBERALISM and that is the best of all!!
Likely just an amusing reality show that will eventually fade away like all of
the others. Must continue on til, at least, after Halloween.Perhaps
it's most important message.... Be certain to obtain a college
