I'm confused. Really confused. First we have Kody, saying in the introduction, that Love should be multiplied, not divided...then later, we have his friend Andy saying if he enters the Principle of Plural marriage, he would be cutting his family in half. What's up with that?
|Robyn as a Monet|
You know, I've come to the conclusion that watching this episode was a lot like looking at a painting by Monet - from a distance it looks really good, but when you get real close, you see it's a mess. (Thank you Cher, from Clueless).
Yep, this is one mess of an episode, especially that Warren Jeffs bloviating by the Kodester. But before we get to that joyful piece of ministry, let's find out how two of the Brown teens are doing.
YAY! Hunter wants to play football again! Janelle is optimistic. " He might still be struggling," she says , "but at least there's gonna be this one thing that will be really awesome for him". And what's this? Madison has lightened her hair! Yes, according to Kody, she has tired of being grumpy so she's trying out a new attitude and a new 'do. "Yeah," Kody says, "It makes me wonder why you ever went black." Really Kody? Think about it, black hair in a sea of blonds. Who do you notice more? I rest my case...
Goody, goody! We get to meet more of the adult Browns' friends. I am simply beside myself to see some more friends - I just can't wait to hear what they have to say! So let's meet Andy and Nicole!
We find out that Andy and Nicole share the same faith as the Browns, the difference being their marriage is still monogamous. As described by Christine on the couch "...they are just wuuuunnnnnnnnnderrrrrfffffullllllll peeeeeeeppppllllllle." I kid you not, that's how Christine described them: They are just wuuuunnnnnnnnnderrrrrfffffullllllll peeeeeeeppppllllllle. Holy Toledo, Christine, could you sound more fake?
Oh, there's the knock on the door. Here they are!
Now at first, they seem like a nice enough couple. We find out they have six kids, and Andy wants to ask Kody "How do you date as a married man?" Now, I've heard through the grapevine that Andy's first choice to ask this question was Eddie Cibrian, but he was too busy. Second choice was Kelsey Grammer, but, well, Kelsey is just Kelsey. The others were either too old or dead, so Andy was stuck with asking Kody. Major bummage.
So the Brown's pack up the vehicles, and drive up to Mt Charleston for a picnic with their Lehi friends! Of course Kody leads the way in his 5th wife better known as his Lexus sports car (and don't you forget it) but that's not Robyn riding with him. Guess she rode her broomstick instead and let one of the Brown kids ride in her seat. Wait a minute, she's riding shotgun in that Honda van in FRONT of the Kodester sportster. Wow, Robyn is truly leading this group out of the darkness and into...well...the wilderness, yes, that's it!! This way to the food, fellas!
Holy Guacamole! Did I just hear what I thought I heard? Did Andy just say a polygamist living in separate homes is like a divorce? No way! My ears are lying to me....HIT THE REWIND!!
|Meri was ...|
Like I said, it's like a Monet painting...
Is it just me or does Christine have a condescending way of speaking during this episode?
"Now there is someone we can talk to alllllll offfffff thaaa tyyyyyyyyyme and we actually have his number!"
Hate to break it to ya, but those are letters - not numbers on that little poster you created.
Next time, use PowerPoint. And numbers. Thank you.
YIPPEE!! - DINNER CRUISE TIME! Yes, although the Browns have no jobs, and are living on 'finite resources' they have GOT to take their Lehi friends on a Lake Mead Dinner Cruise. Now I let my fingers do the googling and found the Dinner cruise website. For seven people, without wine (plus gratuity)the cost was about $378.00. Approximately the cost of one week food for one family all spent in one night entertaining friends. And we don't get to see them eating. Yeah, no pictures of Robyn turning her nose up at the food smells, or shoveling the food into her mouth. What a waste.

So it goes. (Thank you Kurt Vonnegut!)
