    Duck Dynasty a big hit!

    Ratings for the A & E show Duck Dynasty was a leader in it's time slot. The folks in the concrete jungle, called New York took notice and wrote a article on the gang in the New York Times (slimes!).
    Imagine that fly over country gets some attention.

    I can't watch it anymore... The willing suspension of disbelief that viewing the show requires is just too great a gulf for my phsychy to span.... Another way of saying the writing for the show started getting pretty howkie... It was good while it lasted though.

    Si still makes me laugh from time to time with his "vocabulary"

    One thing I like about the show is at the end of each show they all sit down as family and friends to dinner and say grace before they dig in. That's the America I grew up in and will always cherish.

    I haven't watched it because I'm afraid I'll see people I know from here on it.

    I remember seeing the commercials a while back and thinking that this had to be the dumbest idea ever for a tv show. Then a couple of weeks ago there was nothing on TV except a "Duck Dynasty" marathon. I couldn't stop watching. This may be the greatest show ever on TV. Brian is right, it keeps getting less and less believable, but I don't care - I can't get enough. Phil has become my new hero. Swamp - if you poke around on youtube a little bit you can find some clips of Phil preaching. He preaches a pretty good sermon.

    We love the show. Is it all "reality"...no, is some of it staged...yes. But, it's better than most of the crap on tv these days.

    Hands down- the funniest thing I ever saw on the show was Pops boat riding with Mrs.Kay or whatever the grandma's name is... She's talking- he's (acting, pretend..) Totally ignoring her and every now again he just says.. "Uh huh, yep.." CLASSIC- I fall out every time I see that re-run.

    I would like to hear a sermon from him. I bet it would be funny yet inspiring!

    season 2 is noticably more scripted and controlled than the first season but still pretty entertaining. way better than 97% of the other stuff on tv
