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.

The kids in this show are nice. I'd like to spend time with them, whether in real life or watching them on TV. They all have varied interests and a positive outlook on life.
Unfortunately, the show is almost completely ruined by their parents. They don't run the house with an iron fist--more like titanium. Anytime one of the kids disagrees with them, I half expect a whip to come out as the parents scream at them to get back to whatever their personal pet project of the week is.
If there was someway to concentrate this show completely on the kids, or at least not try and pretend that the parents are "protagonists," I'd definitely be a big fan of the show. As it is, I can barely stand to watch it and flip to another channel whenever I can.
