For the second week of “Duck Dynasty” this week, we had almost exactly what the doctor order: more silliness, and more fun. Was there a hilarious moment on par with watching the Robertson family race lawn mowers? No, but we did nearly see Si try and kill someone while working a piece of construction equipment.
Really, the best scene of the hour-long episode Wednesday night occurred while Willie was trying to help his son John Luke purchase a vehicle, and Si had the “bright” idea to take the two of them shopping at a local junk heap. Seeing Si actually willing to pay some sort of sizable sum of money for something with grass growing out of it was a thing of beauty; though to be frank, watching Si do anything is a thing of beauty. While the show’s first season was really all about Jase, it’s more the man with the two-tone beard who is stealing the show this time around.
As a matter of fact, the second half-hour this week was really all about the guy, as he made the spontaneous decision to quit Duck Commander after he started to feel as though he was receiving the short end of the stick around the workplace. There are times in which we feel certain episodes are orchestrated a la a sitcom, and it did feel that way seeing Si just suddenly quit out of the blue. With that being said, watching him try to do other jobs was a pleasant reminder that making reeds for duck calls really is his passion, even if may not always be the most exciting job in the world. The other highlight? Seeing Willie trey and replace him at the company with a man named “Swede” who looked a little like Mose from “The Office.”
