not a fan...

...although I do follow the Duggars, not out of admiration, but out of a sick fascination. Regardless, both Counting On and it's predecessor are just plain dumb: For every 30 seconds of even slightly interesting footage, you have to watch about five minutes of talking heads that add nothing of interest whatsoever.

Example: In the epi where JoyAnna and Sierra are preparing a baby shower, I was curious about Sierra, who Jessa referred to as Joy's best friend*. Sierra wasn't dressed fundy, so I was curious: Where did the two meet? Couldn't've been school, as Joy is homeschooled, and besides Sierra looks older than Joy.

But instead of giving us some background, we get Joy's brothers telling us that any suitors will get "screened" by them. Big DUH. Anyone who's been following the Duggars for five minutes already knows that; it's true of all the sisters. What we're interested in is what makes the siblings individuals.

*Their interactions were quite stilted for best friends. I saw no sign of friendship there at all.

In short, if you want to follow the Duggars, don't bother watching their shows; just type "Duggar" into the search bar: You'll get news of every sneeze and fart -- more than you ever wanted -- and you won't have to support the TLC network.

Clean Christian family values
savvy_silla25 December 2016
I love love love this show! It keeps the best of what we enjoyed in 19 kids and counting and builds on it. It is wonderful to follow the journey of Jill and Derick and little Israel in the mission field in South America, Jessa and Ben's adventures with little Spurgeon, and also stay in touch with all the older kids and what their lives are like every day. We get to see every new courtship and share in their joy upon finding their one true love. I also love that they are unashamedly Christian and their lives speak as loudly as their words. It is a family-friendly show that I can easily recommend to anyone and the whole family can watch it together. I hope this show stays on the air for many more years!

Counting On is AWESOME

Counting On is awesome! In a world where there is so much crazy nonsense going on it's nice to finally see a show like this! We all love it! Josh is not on the show-never mentioned. End of story. What's left is everyone else getting on with their lives and trying to be the best they can be! It's a GREAT show!! Thank you TLC!

so,this show, I love it!

I know, I know this is a controversial show...but I do love it and I love this family. There so sweet and kind and I love their faith in God. I am so glad that the brother isn't on the show anymore, because he shouldn't be. I will always love this family and I love that they are so close and I like how they try and save money and there very smart with their money as well. I feel like they do have good hearts.

Waste of time and money
aivarjak14 June 2018
Boring, so booring. Boring. Boring. Boring. Nothing ever happens. Only boring everyday life. Why waste money on something so boring. Wouldn't be better to give this money to poor Africans? Boring. Did I say that this is boring?

And do they know, that there is no God?
