Storyline

In the most in-depth television documentation of the lives of Little People, the series follows the Roloffs - an extraordinary family composed of both little and average-sized people. Over six months and for 10 hours per day, the series captured the family's everyday successes and struggles. The result is an intimate view of life as a Little Person. Parents Matt and Amy Roloff are both little people - 4 feet tall - but they are determined to succeed in a world that isn't always accepting of differences. Matt has risen through the ranks of the business world, closing deals with some of Silicon Valley's most well-known companies. After being laid off, Matt decided to pursue his dream of owning his own business. Originally a stay-at-home mom but now holding down two jobs, Amy has raised four children: 15-year-old twins, Jeremy and Zach (Jeremy is average height and Zach is a little person), 12-year-old Molly and 8-year-old Jacob. Together they own and operate Roloff Farms, a sprawling 34... Written by Anonymous

This show has a big heart . . .
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first watched this show out of curiosity about "little people", but I quickly forgot about any of the Roloff family members being different from anyone else. In my opinion it is the best "reality" show on TV, a great series for families or anyone else to watch.

To me most reality series are just stupid. Their producers try to make the participants look silly or want to bring in conflict when there is none. I like this series because it seems so honest. Sure, they edit their footage to make it more interesting, but I think what we see for the most part is a very truthful look at a very normal family.

I love the interaction and the caring between family members. They don't always agree and they're not always polite, but that's life. They very obviously love each other and are there for each other. Matt and Amy are exceptional parents who are doing a great job in raising their kids. Anybody who has raised teenagers will recognize a lot of what is going on and that is said in this family.

This series is SO much better than some other reality shows where the kids act like little robots and everything looks carefully scripted and always so perfect. This is real life, never neat and orderly, but about as good as you can get.

I wish that I had had the opportunity, or made the opportunity, to raise my kids on such a wonderful farm. And I admire Matt for attacking life with so much gusto, trying so many new things, taking so many chances. He is a role model to every adult out there, regardless of their size.
