Counting On, Season 4 Part 2: Still Far Behind Real Life

After the umpteenth courtship, engagement, wedding, pregnancy and baby, it really is like Groundhog Day. We've seen it all already. TLC is lazy and just repeats its 'winning' formula for the show. It's hard to care when it's all the same. Unless Jana gets married in the near future, I can't see how they're going to sustain viewership.

Just watched the episode. I felt so sorry for Joy. She was clearly on the verge of tears the entire time she was there, and I can understand why. It was obviously an emotionally draining experience. I

John David on what is an A-line: "I don't really care."

I thought Duggars were only allowed to multiply

I took my son to see the Full Monty movie (he was an adult) when it came out and he could have used subtitles. As for Irish, one time my husband and I were hitchhiking (yeah, I'm that old) in the west of Ireland and we got picked up by a lovely French couple who had come there to use/improve their English. We stopped 

That said, every place I moved, the Midwest was the worst for this, people would start talking about "Joisey." .......  but I've never heard it and it always made me want to hit them.

Yes! Same here. I’m from the NY Metro area. I KNOW I don’t say ‘Joisey’ and have never met anyone who does. 

I’ve found that level, eye to eye contact, while looking as blank as possible, usually shuts up all but the most boorish.

[mention=13860]RosyDaisy[/mention]  Do you mean the "fans" pay that much to see the games?  If so, that is absolutely incredible to me. 
 
 


Yes, they do. It's no different than paying big bucks for a concert, opera, play, etc. I don't see what the problem is. That money goes back into the university to fund education and research.

There is only on pregnant Duggar (that we know of) right now. So there will be a lull after Joy's baby in terms of babies and we'll all be dying of boredom. Then sure you could have an onslaught with Jessa, Jinger and Kendra all good candidates and Jill and Anna somewhat behind them. And truthfully it is less and less interesting with every new baby, who cares about Jill's #3, for example?

The courtships/engagements/weddings of Duggar sons are not that interesting but that's all they'll have for a very long time aside from maybe Jana. Who seems more content to raise cucumbers than contribute to the world's overpopulation issues. Good for her.

There's rarely a lull in babies. I wouldn't hold my breath for that one.

Definitely not. There are six couples who could potentially be pregnant at anytime. They have all been taught that any type of birth control is evil and that the wife should be joyfully available anytime. Chances are decent that there will be another announcement before Joy gives birth. If not before it would surely come shortly after. 

Since Jill announced her first pregnancy has there been a time where there wasn't at least one Duggar pregnant? I'm thinking it was only the time between Jessa's pregnancies but I'm not sure.

Yep the few months between Spurgeon and Henry. That was it.

Do you think they are going to do an episode for Jill's last labor and delivery? It seems strange that it wasn't one of the first episodes they did. Back when the show was really popular they put the special episodes out quickly.

I think this will be the last time for at least the next 10 years...

JB and Michelle will soon be lost in a sea of 50 grandchildren and not know their names or how old they are...(maybe only +/-1 year)

Mackynzie, as the first grandchild, almost is forgotten, as Izzy is the first grandchild by a Duggar-daughter, which, ironically, seems more important to the brand, even though it's all about the PATRIARCHY!

I'm starting to think they won't.  I think something went wrong that they don't think they can really hide and they don't want to show it.  I also think Jill and family are being phased out either because they want to or because they are not popular.

I think they aren't showing Jill and family because of Derrick and the things he's said on social media.  I too think something went wrong with her delivery.

I'm not sure, they were showing them less before the social media weren't they?  I think there may be a bit of a chicken and egg thing going on but I'm not sure.

i'd rather watch Benessa than those 2 anyway, they are tolerable. Jill drive me nuts and don't get me started on Derrick.

Henry was born in the middle of a season and they showed him birth in the next season. He was shown at Joy's wedding and then he was born either the show after Joy's wedding or two weeks later. It was shown pretty quickly. Samuel was born during the season as well. In the scheme of things, they aren't up to his birth. But, that doesn't normally matter.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
