Am I missing something?
Come on down here to West Monroe and set a spell. We'll see if you get it then.

Up til a couple weeks ago I had never been to LA. Went to LSU campus for some training. Never realized where Monroe was compared to Baton Rouge til I googled it. For some reason I always pictured it down near the bottom of the state. I liked it down there.

Nope, I don't "get it". I got a DVD of it for a gift last Christmas, and watched the pilot and first regular show. Just don't have much interest in watching anymore.

I don't really understand why a seemingly successful family, from what I see of their "business", would want to be on a "reality show"??

And speaking of business... from what little I saw as to how they "run" their "business", I wouldn't even consider buying a Duck Commander duck call.

For people who enjoy it, great! As I understand it, there is little to no swearing and they actually show prayer at the dinner table. That is rather shocking for TV programming now a days!

I have a different DD T-shirt for everyday of the week.
I absolutely love the show!

They are salt of the earth people who give thanks to God.
They also portray gun owners in a positive light.There's never a firearm far from them and that makes an important statement to the general public.

Hopefully,Willie really will run for congress.

Apparently you don't understand too much about "business" then. They're making a killing and that's what business is all about. Not only has their game call business continued to grow, probably catapulted further because of the show, they're also capitalizing on other marketing spinoffs from the show itself.

I've said for years that I can't stand reality TV shows and that otherwise is still the case. Was at some friends a year or so ago who said I/we should check it out and flipped it on, despite my protests. I found it entertaining and still do. Don't watch it regularly and doubt I've seen even half of the shows to date, but I think it's funny. Sure it's scripted and contrived but as somebody quoted above, it's a sitcom with real people who aren't actors and hence, actually has a reality component to it. The characters are very consistent in their portrayals and frankly remind me of plenty of good old boys I've met over the years.

I'm sure it is not for everybody but what is? They actually have a very interesting story, have really created a multi-million dollar business before they entered reality TV, from all accounts are genuine people who are something like they have chosen to portray themselves on TV and have a fun, positive message. They strike me as more "real" than "Housewives of ___", the Kardashians or just about any of these other reality shows I have some awareness of and if any of these other people have actually accomplished something of worth otherwise, it's certainly off my radar.

Not my thing. And reality tv in general really isn't my thing. I'll watch Naked & Afraid and Survivorman, but that's about all the reality tv I can tolerate anymore.

I have a coworker that is infatuated with Duck Dynasty. He tries to talk like, dress like em and has even tried growing his beard out with no success at all. I even had to tell him to quit calling me Jack.

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.

I've watched a few, it's O.K.. I think the real story is how much money they made with their patented, particular type of duck call. It is/was something with the reed best I know. That is the amazing story & good for them.

The wives look nice too, wonder why???$$

The Robertsons are good Christian people on a national network, Ill support them for that alone if necessary. Truth be told, I love the show, Si cracks me up.

I enjoy it. Yea it's scripted, but in the end I find it funny and good family fun. Given the current state of a lot of television, that's a lot.

I thought it was funny until all I heard at work was "Happy, Happy, Happy" or "Hey Jack" or "Are you trying to grow a DD beard?". And then the T-shirts. It was funny when I could watch it for an hour a week and laugh at it, but not so funny when it was ran into the ground and talked about 24/7 by everyone I know.

I know it's scripted. To me, the Robertsons act like they know that I know that it is scripted. It is just fun and entertaining.
