Do You "Get" Duck Dynasty?

My sister in law practically drools over this show. I've watched it a few times and I don't get it.
These dudes sit, mumble, and pretend to hunt. They sit in a boat, mumble more, show some ducks in the air clearly nowhere near them, they stand up shoot, and sit down and mumble more. No ducks, no splash, no dog....
Am I missing something?

I would say so considering that the act of duck hunting has been on the show for maybe 10 minutes in three seasons.

Its a show about family and life, not duck hunting. Some people cant appreciate that, they need mindless action.

I don't get any of these trashy "reality" shows.
I hold them personally responsible for the decline of Western civilization.

Some people actually believe those shows are "reality".
The truth is they are ALL faked with bad actors following a poorly written script.

They will be the downfall of our civilization.

I so totally agree. I can't believe the people that get into these reality shows. They are so mind numbing.

groovy! you've figured out the exact problem that is causing our society to crumble and fail. nevermind our current president, or our apathetic society, or the frivolous law suits going on or the fact that the fat peaople carts at walmart are rapidly matching the regular grocery baskets. we'll also exclude the fact that people are more worried about what ammo is available at walmart than what their kids are playing or watching on tv.

we have white folks whining about "unenploymnent" that are too fragile to dig a ditch for 50$ a day. people whine about illegal aliens but are hiring them literally by the truck loads to mow their 10x10 yard, or do their roofs.


but you're right, it's "dancing with the stars" or "survivor" that is ruining this country.

Western civilization was in a tailspin long before the concept of these shows were thought of.

Anyways, I like DD. They's my kinda people.

A lot of reality TV IS trashy.

However, with DD and a few others, you've got it backwards.

The reason that so many don't 'GET' it is because of the decline of Western Civ.

Duck Dynasty is about as far from "trashy" as anything on television since the 50s.

Like most "a day in the life" type reality shows they make up semi-fake scenarios for the characters to engage in. It's pretty vapid material. It markets itself as having simple family values to a conservative audience. Which is fine but there's nothing particularly engaging about it. It's mildly entertaining sometimes.

If anyone thinks these guys can't hunt, check out Duck Commander videos. Duck Commander was long before Duck Dynasty.

Beat me to it. Duck Commander goes back way before Duck Dynasty. These guys are duck hunting legends. The show is just a great way for then to make money. Good for them.

I had their VHS tapes back in the 90's. These guys CAN get a limit of ducks in a hurry, and have great calling skills.

I've tried a few times but can't get into it. Seems like another version of Honey Boo Boo

It's the only "reality" show I watch. I know it's scripted. I enjoy it for what it is.

Here in KY, people go nuts over those guys like 12 year old girls over Justin Beiber.

The show, like all reality shows, is scripted nonsense, and people eat it up. Synthetically engineered drama meant to attract the average american zombie. Reality shows get more and more preposterous every day.

I much prefer a quality REAL tv show like Breaking Bad or SOA. Following someone through their daily life doesn't interest me at all. Reality shows are the embodiment of the nosey American society we have today.
