Ultra-conservative parents grapple with their oldest children's independence and life choices. The show highlights the contentious relationship between the mother and her son's new wife. The new daughter-in-law, Olivia, introduces her husband to wine and decadent desserts. While the parents brag about their unreasonable restrictions such as no sugar, no secular music, no traveling, no cell phones, and no traditional education, Olivia becomes a family favorite by indulging her husband's siblings in all that is forbidden.
Hypocritical? Yes. Cute kids? Yes
First get past the fact that the show is a complete contradiction; meaning that the parents claim to keep their children sheltered from exposure to TV, radio, the real world, cell phones, sugar and more, yet they are in a reality TV show. Then look past the fact that the older daughters of this so-called extremely conservative family are allowed to drown themselves in makeup, gaudy jewelry and horrendous nail polish. After you get past all that the kids are cute. And it's refreshing to hear teenagers speak without saying "like" between each word. And although the older kids are itching to stake their independence The angst is at a minimum. It's nice to see kids get along with each other and with their parents. There's no yelling, bickering or fighting. It's actually a sweet show.
