    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. :frown:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    What is there to get? Its on TV, hence entertainment. I find the show amusing and better then some of the other poo-poo on TV.

    I dont watch it but I have seen it..it was creatively amusing when the Nephews had it on at the hotel we were staying at while we were going to a car show...I said id never saw it before they explained it...even my father in law watches it he said...I DID find it relatively funny..I didnt find it intriguing enough to become a viewer though and have not seen it since then(last year in july)

    I like to watch shows that require no thinking or teach me something.

    Duck dynasty falls perfectly under the requirement of no thinking. It also pretty funny to me. And I think I have even learned a couple things.

    It's a great show, they have family squabbles they shoot they are into the outdoors and nature, and at the end of the show they all get together and pray whats not to like
    It's like a modern day Waltons, love the show

    The show used to be good. It's way too obviously scripted now. Of course it always was, but now it's way too apparent. It was a good version of most reality shows, but now it has gone the way of everything else, appealing to the masses. I don't watch it anymore because it has gotten really fake, but I still support their overall message of god and family. This is, of course, just my opinion, if you still like it, then great. It is/was a good show.
