Jon + 8 / Kate + 8

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

Jon + 8 / Kate + 8

Postby supaunknown » Tue May 26, 2009 4:42 pm

Season 5 premiere last night.
Dark. Sad. Ouch.

Jon was evasive, pissed off, and possibly on meds.
Kate was busy, blindly indignant, and is about to be named People Mag's #1 Villainess in America.

The love is gone. Damn.

I don;t have any room left in my brain for this kind of stupid. Rock of Love done filled 'er up. Then the GF decides she wants to watch Rock of Love Charm School and I'm all like uh-uh. Go in the other room.

Had a friend who said they should change the title to Jon and Kate + Hate.

I'm still having a hard time understanding the continued appeal of reality TV. They can't even make the "Local Couple, along with an effeminate designer, renovate their neighbor's laundry room" shows on HG interesting without scripting pretty much everything.

I did see 3-4 episodes of this show - the early ones where they showed them just getting through the day seemed a lot more fun to watch than "Mommy and the three boys go on Oprah" etc. that they did later.

I think Kate got accustomed to the limelight. Obviously moreso than Jon. The kids have been raised in it so they don't know any other way of life.

If Jon really did cheat, who can blame the guy?
Kate's an immasculating & bossy ball-buster! And that hair-style :shock:

Her Suze Orman hairstyle is just fine and comments such as these, even if they are thrown out as whimsy, are sexist. Madmind, if you are serious about why you are unable to attract a mate maybe you should take a good look at some of the shit that falls out of your mouth. And if Jon did cheat on Kate then I'm glad that Kate is banging the bodyguard.

Dude, the babe looks liked she just got shocked in the back of the head or is wearing some sort of indian headress.

That hairstyle certainly makes me question the "realism" of this show (among other things, of course). No mother of 8, heck, no mother of 2, would have time to do that hair every day.

Well, TV is basically her 'job', so having her hair done, slapping on makeup, and tightening the Captain Kirk girdle are in her best interest.

I understand why busy moms get the lo-maintenence short haircut after having kids, but it's the equivalent of George Costanza when he started wearing sweatpants around during the the day. They're saying to the world, "I give up. Please no longer view me as a sexual being."

If I grew my hair longer, would I be able to nab for myself a reality show watching, sensitive and non-judgmental man like you?

Aw shit. I had a feeling that sharing my stinkin' overgeneralization on this would bring me some grief. Sorry. I should've kept my pet pervy opinion to myself.

No worries! When I was on here before I was a fan of yours, one stupid generalization isn't going to make that go away. And your opinion is just that - it didn't hurt my feelings or anything.

I was really just trying to get back into the groove of the DPF. WTF is going on in this place? Shouldn't you be asking me how long it's been since I've gotten laid? 'Cuz you just might be onto something...
