Sure is a lot of trouble to go through in order to still gently caress relatives, just not blood-related.

Not to point fingers, but I sure do see a lot of stuff in threads about tlc (this one especially) where the poster preambles his thoughts with: "oh yeah, well, my wife/gf/whatev watches this a lot so I've seen a bunch". I feel if anyone I knew watched this show more than a time or two it would be impossible to not make fun of them.

To be clear though, Mormon-bashing is good and correct.

Tlc knows what they're airing. These shows are modern freak shows and they present their subjects as such.

If you think that, along the way, you're not going to fail... you're blind.

There's no one I've ever met, no matter how successful they are, who hasn't said they had their failures along the way.

I unironically enjoyed watching Sister Wives. There's something comforting about it, how this polygamist family are just like any other normal family of unimportant dullards. It's just magnified because there's four marriages around Kodi and a thick cloud of politics between those women, and it really showcases how horribly lovely polygamy is. They're unhappy, they're trapped by their convictions that this situation is godly and correct, and it's just really hilarious to watch the show try to spin a very minor event into an episode-shaping cataclysm, like commercial teasers being all "YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT KODI SAYS TO HIS DAUGHTER" and it's just him being really awkward about how kissing outside of marriage can destroy your soul while the girl and her boyfriend look like they want to kill themselves :v:

I fully admit that I get sucked in to this poo poo while my wife watches and I'm playing Rocket League in the same room, but goddammit is Sister Wives terrible. Just all around bad.

90 Day Fiancée is a more enjoyable trainwreck, BECAUSE it's a trainwreck.

gently caress this channel. It's watchable because it's overtly terrible.

yeah. I never got as much of a whitewashing vibe on Sister Wives as i did JIm Bob Express. SW makes it fully aware that dude ran from polygamist hate to las vegas and bought 3 super lovely mcmansions adjacent on a cul-de-sac to start his weird lil compound and everybodys super hot all the time and sweaty and just looks like theyre about to turn into a potato chip

Also please don't make fun of me on the internet oh nooo. haha you sat with your wife and watched some of her bad tv? you loving assbag. only the finest naruto dubs for me sir

To be fair, from everything ever said on that show, Meri actually talked Kodi into it. I think she came from a FLDS background but he didn't necessarily? Kodi's dad is FLDS now, though, and one of his sister wives is Janelle's mom. Janelle being Kodi's second wife.

What does catfishing mean in this case? I thought that was when someone made a fake online account to impersonate someone.

I love the explanation for the term at the end of the titular (teehee) movie

"it's called catfish cuz they make your life interesting or some poo poo"

fake edit:

quote:

In the film, the husband of the "catfish", Vince, relays a story of how when live cod were shipped to Asia from North America, the fish's inactivity in their tanks resulted in only mushy flesh reaching the destination. However, fishermen found that putting catfish in the tanks with the cod kept them active, and thus ensured the quality of the fish. Vince made an analogy of how there are people in everyone's lives who keep each other active, always on their toes and always thinking, suggesting that people should always be alert while socializing through the Internet.

There's only a few salt water catfish and they are all from tropical areas and cod are a cold water fish. And that's just for starters.

My mom grew up in a few relocation homes before she moved out. One was half a front floor of a house shared with another family and 1 bathroom. She had 3 sisters, the other family a bunch as well. From what I understand, she was really ashamed to be a welfare kid during the 1960s especially because she was smart enough to join things like the model UN etc. It made her really demanding to do better for herself and get what she wanted. I think in many ways going from a two bedroom apartment split by her 3 sisters + her and her parents, to the split front floor home location, and then some other equally small house really was a hosed up experience. Her dad beat her mom, there was alcoholism and cheating and poverty and anti-Semitism and in the end she made it out and never wanted to go back. This was after being a WW2 child refugee so I figure I'd tell this story. Especially seeing as how the top "anti-white privilege crusader" comes from a much nicer family and income than this situation and literally lives the little princess lifestyle whenever possible LOL

The sexless marriage that 50-year-old woman is in with Mohammed is absolutely laughable, but I also feel bad for her, because she's so disillusioned, and probably severely depressed.

He's a loving waste, though.
