We admit it — we’re completely in love with “Duck Dynasty.” The show is almost like the hillbilly version of “Seinfeld” — we really don’t have any idea what the point of the show is, but it’s completely and totally hysterical. We’re absolutely convinced at this point that we could watch Jase read the classifieds and we would find it entertaining.
This week, the theme of the episode was pretty simple — there was a beehive on Phil’s property, and Jase and some of the other members of the wealthy Robertson clan wanted to get the honey out of by any means necessarily. With this, it was almost like watching a “Winnie the Pooh” cartoon with even more bad ideas. Our personal favorite? Watching the guys try and take the honey in the middle of the night because they thought that bees did not sting at night.
Of course, at the end of the episode Phil managed to bail out Willie and Jase, but this quest for honey was really all about the journey rather than the end result. The reason this show works so well is that these people genuinely don’t act like they are putting on a show, and that is what makes it better than some of the other “reality shows” that are already out there. The family is just being their awkward, offensive, and hilarious selves, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We’re not really sure how many people out there even know that this show exists, but this is the sort of thing that could become a smash hit. We just hope that as “Duck Dynasty” (which strangely was not even remotely about duck calls this week) ends up gaining an audience, that everyone within the family remains the same and allows themselves to have this much fun. After all, that’s why this show is a hidden gem of cable TV whether it be the humor, the production value, or even the actual love that exists with the family.
