I’m so god damned sick of seeing or hearing about the show “Duck Dynasty.” If you have no idea what show I’m talking about, I’m so jealous of you.
The show is about a rich hillbilly family and their constant shenanigans. I watched the first 3 or 4 episodes when the show first came out because of the build up to it. The promos they had been running on the show for weeks up to its pilot episode made me want to see it. They had some awesome rock n roll featuring hilarious parts of the show in them, how could I not watch?
And then I watched it. What I saw was this.
They’re rich and they show it off. I hate rich, smug people.
They have a multi-million dollar family owned and operated business that they fuck up and destroy all the time. I wish I had that kind of multi-million dollar operation that I could ruin and still have it be successful.
This show is basically about one thing. Rich people and the crazy stuff they do because they can. The only reason it’s watchable for us northerners is because they’re hillbillies and hillbillies do things to entertain themselves that we’re not used to. So we’re watching and laughing at these guys and their crazy hillbilly down south ways. In essence, this show is making fun of hillbillies. Two great shows, Futurama and Family Guy, you may have heard of them, were once kicked off the air because they made fun of hillbillies. And now a network is banking off of that very thing, blatantly. I don’t find that entertaining.
And their wives are all hot. I’m going to move to the south where the women love ugly idiots. I’ll be a king there. Unless you have to be a RICH ugly idiot, in which case I’m still screwed.
I’m so sick of this show. This is one reason I’m glad I don’t have cable anymore.
