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.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I find this show to be a case of much ado about nothing. I was intrigued with the premise enough to watch a few episodes, but once one gets past the fact that three of the cast members are dwarfs, there is nothing remarkable about this family whatsoever. They seem like a nice enough clan, with their comfortably cluttered house, occasionally bratty kids and a few bothersome health issues... just like pretty much every other family I know. After watching an episode devoted almost entirely to the astonishingly unremarkable task of cleaning the twins' room, I vowed never to waste another 30 minutes of my life in the same manner again. I mean really - if I wanted to see dirty clothes strewn about and dust bunnies under the bed, I could have just gone upstairs. The show is to be commended for attempting to educate viewers about little people and demonstrate how they are essentially "just like you and me", but that is also its downfall - for ordinariness simply hasn't made for compelling TV viewing since the days of "Father Knows Best".
