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

Great show, Different Outlook
21 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I have watched this show from the beginning and always look forward to seeing each new episode. I'm eagerly awaiting season 3- there will be one, won't there?- and was delighted to find their own site page on IMDb, as when I initially checked when the first season first began, they did not have a page.

The thing one must remember when watching or- especially- discussing this show, is that it isn't a piece of fiction acted out by thespians. It's real people letting the world get a glimpse into their real lives. I find some of the comments made about this show on this site anywhere from silly to insulting. I find it kind of strange and upsetting and its not even people that I know that these internet lurkers are writing about.

Regardless, one has to remember that this reality program features a cast of characters that are all too real and human, just like anyone else you might meet. The parents bicker and argue- just like most married couples I've known. The kids are, well, kids. They can sometimes do or say the sweetest things and touch your heart. Other times, they can say something stupid or do something dangerous and it makes you want to ground them yourself. Just like any kid I've ever met.

The fact that half the family has dwarfism hardly seems to matter much, save for the episodes that touch upon the physical troubles they sometimes face, or the Little People Conventions they sometimes attend, which honestly sound like fun. It mostly seems like a bunch of people from all over the world getting together and making friends. They all have one thing in common that draws them initially, but it's their other common interests that creates the friendships and keeps them coming back. (No, I'm not a little person myself, nor do I know any, so the chance that I would ever attend such an event seems unlikely to me.) Otherwise, it's usually normal type stuff you see on the show. Kids off doing something they shouldn't be doing. Parents yelling at the kids. Parents fighting over money matters (come on, don't you remember your parents? Or even you and your own spouse?). Grandparents coming over. Projects that never get done. Some projects that DO get done. Working, going to school. Going to the store. Facing life's challenges. All the stuff that makes up everyone's lives. What makes it fun to watch is that its not your own life, so you can be enthralled in it without having a personal stake. This type of reality show makes for good viewing that the whole family can watch. It's better than most television now a days, whether reality based or not.

Anyway, it's just an interesting-slice-of-life kind of show. And knowing that the characters on it are not just actors playing a part, or celebrities mugging for the camera, or people trying to win that million dollars by eating bugs or swimming in toxic waste, but actually real, living, breathing human beings makes it all the more interesting and personable.

The one thing that did upset me though was hearing that some insurance companies will not cover the Roloff family because of their dwarfism- which they regard as a "pre-existing condition"- is appalling. Being someone myself that has many health concerns or "pre-existing conditions", I know that getting health insurance can be anywhere from difficult to impossible, which is SO WRONG! I find it a sad thing indeed, when it's so easy for a person to buy home insurance or car or life or even pet insurance, but it's so darned expensive to insure a human being, which should be the most important and precious thing to insure, period.

Okay, I'm getting off the soap box now, but would seriously recommend giving "Little People, Big World" a try. It's a wonderful series that follows a flawed, caring, very human family of six.
