Kody Brown, with his four wives Meri, Janelle, Robyn and Christine and their combined 17 children, attempt to navigate life as a "normal" family in a society that shuns their lifestyle. From their unconventional family structure and living arrangements to financial challenges, each half hour episode exposes the inner workings of a polygamist household, revealing the unexpectedly tight-knit and loving relationships between Kody's wives. The series also captures the intense dynamics surrounding a man juggling three wives while attempting to keep it a secret from the outside world- but the general public is not the only challenge that the Brown family unit is facing.

23 February 2018 | by bpashain-07133See all my reviews

I have watched for awhile and this show has changed considerably. It used to be one of my guilty pleasures, but now I fast forward through a lot. As for the wives, Meri whines non-stop about being an empty nester and Christine whines that she doesn't get enough attention. Janelle is so cut-off emotionally, I think a train could drive through her living room and I don't think she would notice. Robin? Well, I try to ignore her. She drives me insane. She acts like she's in charge of everyone and everything, and the truth is she just came into their lives a few years ago. She talks and acts like she's been with Kody since he was a teenager. She's only known the kids for a few years, but she talks like she's been around since the oldest were in diapers. It's annoying as all heck listening to her talk about the kids. Sadly, she is the one who acts the most comfortable in the family. The original wives seem depressed, miserable, whiny and jealous of EVERYTHING. They joke about how they can't kiss their husband in front of the other wives because it will cause problems. Kody also admits that he keeps things "private" because they keep score on everything. Right down to where the other wives went to dinner on their anniversary, what they got for birthdays, if Kody respects their opinions equally, etc. In short? Polygamy looks absolutely, devastatingly miserable. The show seems forced now. Like they know ratings are tanking and they are desperate for viewers. This is the 12th season and it has centered around Mykelti getting married to a Mexican guy. He makes NON-STOP "jokes" about "white people". He refers to certain candy as "white people candy", certain music as "white people music", so on and so forth. Isn't that considered racist? Can other shows refer to BBQ as "black people food"? Probably not. Tonight was the last night I will watch this show. It was actually the episode that aired 4 days ago where Mariah dragger Meri and Janelle to the womens march in D.C.. The entire episode was about Mariah and her GF and that stupid march. She ran around the march calling for "her 2 moms". Any other time, she will have nothing to do with Meri, but now that she can fit in with an alternative family life, she proudly exclaims she is a gay woman with 2 moms? Puke. I've read that this is the last season. I can see why.
