It Is What It Is
16 February 2019 | by leafs_rule-9See all my reviews

You can rate this either way up or way down. Fact is it isn't that bad. Annoying characters? Yeah. Some. But we deal with those in real life daily. Sometimes in the same home so it adds to the reality then doesn't it? Scenery is amazing. Truly. Editing can be considered rough but seems to be geared towards someone opening the episode without ever having seen the beginning. I watch this with my kids and there is a lot to be learned from watching these families and individuals deal with their lives. Considering how popular garbage surrounding the Kardashians is or even back with the Jersey Shore tools, this show is definitely a win. And I mean c'mon, how many people do you know with a pet fox? That's worth something.
