A Good Show If You Watch It Just For the Kids
2 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jon and Kate Plus 8 is a reality show based around the lives of Jon and Kate Gosselin and their eight children, Cara, Mady, Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel. The shows wins points for being one of the few reality shows that actually isn't fake. Everything is shot in real time, and what you see is actually what is going on in their everyday lives. However, while the show is realism is a positive point, it also proves to be a negative point as well.

The show has been on the air for four years, and in that time viewers have watched Kate Gosselin go from a loving mother to a greedy woman who does not show her children the love they deserve. While Kate was controlling in the first two seasons, she still showed her children that she cared for them. But, too many freebees have gone to Kate's head, and it is painfully obvious. Jon is less greedy then his wife, but it is still obvious that much of the things they receive from helpful sources is just a bad attempt at product placement. Many viewers have been driven away by Jon and Kate's greed. It seems that they will take anything as long as its free.

On a lighter note, the true joy of the show are Jon and Kate's eight children. Each child shines in their own way.

Cara is motherly towards the younger children, and is the athlete in the family.

Mady tells it how it is. She is not afraid to show her family to tell her parents how she feels about something. While some may call this bratty, I call it spunk.

Alexis is the loudest of the sextuplets, and is the biggest troublemaker of the bunch.

Hannah is what Kate calls "the little mother." She is mature for a four year old, and actually helps fold laundry for her mother. But she also has an attitude of an eight year old.

Aaden is the animal lover, and he is always pretending to be some animal of sort.

Collin is the most stubborn of the six little children, yet he is helpful. Kate calls him her "helper boy." Leah is the smallest of the bunch, but don't let that fool you. She is a bundle of energy that is always running around and jumping off things.

And last but not least you have Joel. He is the quietest of the tups, but he is also the cutest of the boys. It's is to hard to describe Joel in a few words so I'll just say he is interesting.

Overall, the children are the reason the show is on the air, and it well worth the time to watch. You never know what to expect from these children, and each episode is a pleasure to watch so long as the children are the center of attention.
