Matt Maxed Out

This pumpkin season turns out to be the biggest ever for Roloff Farms. Facing capacity crowds, Matt tries to supervise his oversized and inexperienced staff, and finds that his micro-managing only serves to create more stress for everyone - especially him

Roughing It

In the fall of 2005, the Roloff men went on a camping adventure in the Oregon wilderness, while Molly and Amy stayed home for some girl time. This fresh look at unseen moments recalls a time when life was simpler for the Roloffs.

I still watch the show, but they're really running out of ideas, aren't they?

Iraq again? It was a good cause and interesting for one episode, but not something I care to see again and again.

Pumpkin season is like the LPA conferences. Here we go again. It's all basically the same with the same formula.

I don't understand if they really shoot 5 days a week 14 hours a day, how come the lost episodes are simply footage we've already scene, just from a different angle? They must have days and days and days of unused footage from things completely separate from what we've already seen.

Nancy, the problem is the family is trying to be more private, while keeping the show going and the cash flowing.

It's easy for them to repeat the same contrived plots. There used to be episodes about Jeremy's relationships. There haven't been one of those for a long time or any "real" issue. The contrived plots, Matt built something, Matt micro-managed and pissed everybody else - isn't invading on their personal lives.

They're trying to have the best of both worlds. A reality show without being intrusive.

Kelly said...

The truth is it doesn't matter what the shows are about. Over half the audience watch because Jeremy is cute eye candy. If Jeremy left or if his body and face was disfigured the ratings would die off.

It doesn't matter what the plot is from week to week. It doesn't matter that there is strong evidence that Jeremy isn't even a good person.

As long as Jeremy's ass keeps looking great in those tight jeans and he keeps losing his shirt (do you notice that is happening more often?) the show will get good ratings.

The new shows sound terrific. I wish Zach would be more careful riding those tractors. I recall the first incident. Jeremy needed to do some magnificent driving to save the day. I can still see the tractor on the hill at the verge of tipping over onto Jeremy.

If God hadn't been looking out for Jeremy, Zach's carelessness could have cost Jeremy his life.

I'm aware Zach wants to show that he can do what Jeremy can do, but sometimes he can't and he should accept that before someone gets seriously injured.

I'm proud to hear Jeremy was promoted.

Kelly, Jeremy is a handsome young man, I understand his popularity with teenaged girls, but there is more to Jeremy than a pretty face and/or a cute butt ;-)

The entire Roloff clan are a wonderful Christ-loving family with wholesome family values. I watch because they enrich lives and entertain while spreading Christ's love. Last week was a good example. Jeremy used the bible to teach Jacob a lesson.

Crawcraw said...

Sheri, I hope you saw the Bible on Jeremy's nightstand by his bed a two weeks ago. Amy doesn't need to force Jeremy to read the Bible like Jacob.

Kelly, I agree with you, but Jeremy is great person too. He's the total package.

You know that Zach must have done something stupid if it started an arguement between him and Jeremy. The last time Sheri talked about was the only time when Jeremy has been really angry at Zach. I'm glad Matt recognizes Jeremy is good with the tractors.

I think the Iraq episodes are boring.

It will be fun watch never before seen scenes from the first season. The camping trip was a good episode.

I'm happy Jacob isn't in these new episode. There has been too much Jacob lately. He's too bratty. When he's not bratty, he's boring (the Space Jake episode).

I'm looking forward to tonight's lost episode about Jeremy's social life. Those are the best episodes.

?? If God had been looking out for Jeremy, then perhaps the accident could've been avoided all together. By extension, does your statement mean that God wasn't looking out for Jacob during the numerous times he's been injured? Sorry to pick on you, but statements like these really serve no purpose and are thoughtless.


The entire Roloff clan are a wonderful Christ-loving family with wholesome family values.By what measures and standards are you basing this assessment? I couldn't disagree with you more. They may be "christ-loving", but that doesn't make them paragons of virtue and family values. In fact, the evidence regarding their family values points to a far different conclusion. Perhaps you'd like to tell us exactly what is so worthy of emulation and a pure result of their "Christian virtue"?

I watch because they enrich lives and entertain while spreading Christ's love. Last week was a good example. Jeremy used the bible to teach Jacob a lesson.

Basically, then,...anyone who claims to be a Christian who has a television show is a net positive in your estimation.

God has a special place for the Roloffs. They are truly what real Christians are all about. Unlike the immoral godless posters on this site.

Real Christians wink at their kids disrespecting them to their faces?

I am pretty sure Focus on the Family is not down with the patened Roloff "walk away from Dad while he tries to correct you" moves of Jeremy, Zach, Molly and Jake (I've seen all four do it)

Real Christians pointedly *downplay* their religious views for the money? I mean, for all the "DEAR GOD THEY ARE SOOOOO CHRISTIAN THEY REALLY SHOULD CHANGE THEIR NAMES TO ROLOFF-CHRIST'S BEST!" talk - lets see them *speak on camera* about God. All of them.

Lets see some commitment to Christ. Lets see Jeremy look the camera in the eye and say "I think its cool to love Jesus and I personally tithe to the church."

Lets see it. Because getting stopped by the cops and beating on your younger siblinbgs, and disrespecting your parents to their faces isn't godly in my book.

I find it very curious that with the exception of Amy, none of the Roloffs are willing to be so uncool as to talk about God on camera - but when it can sell a book, well... That's different.

That's money. Roloffs talk about loving Jesus when money is involved but because presenting themselves as staunch rightwing Christian conservatives would make them less palatable to the public, its not on the show. Considering how brat like and disrespectful the kids are, its very very clear that Matt and Amy do not Bible discipline their children.

If Matt Roloff and family is America's moral compass, then I fear for America.

The green eyed monster has got you confused again Rappy? Did you not see the Bible on Jeremy's nightstand? He is a wonderful Christian boy who brings joy to many people. He lends his voice to sing God's praises in his church choir. He gives of his time to help the downtrodden. He sure does more then the rest of you vile people who do nothing but bash this family on the internet. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. But I digress, God will be your judge.

Oh, boo to the hoo. I have a Bible on my nightstand...does that make me a "wonderful Christian"? It seems that your standard is lacking in depth. By the same token, singing in your church's choir doesn't make you beyond reproach. Prison's have worship choirs. Beloved ministers who lead hymns have molested small children and concocted monetary scams most of us heathens could never dream of. If your standards of morality are so tenuous, then I hesitate to respect your opinion of Christians. Tell me what Jeremy has done that is truly demonstrative of the "do unto others", self-sacrificing ethic! Aside from acts that were taped for the show (cleaning up the flood and building a habitat home), I've not heard of Jeremy's benevolence. Of course, he's a teenager and I'm willing to acknowledge that the camera can't catch everything. Yet, one would imagine those who, allegedly, know him could come up with something better than "he sings in choir". When he donates his pumpkin season income to a charity (not ran by his dad), then come back here and tell us about his example for teens. When he can keep his racist, homophobic slurs in check, then come back here and tell us how he's THE example of Christianity. Jeremy is an adult. He's not a child. Also note that no one questions Molly or Jacob in the same way...they are children with little say in their family's fame-whorish pursuits. When did Jesus say, "Go forth and produce a television show to glorify me! Do this in memory of me."? How is LPBW, with it's wanton materialism and extravagant exterior, glorifying God? How is a trebuchet or a group of kids who don't seem to appreciate that they have a lavish lifestyle glorifying? Most of all...read Matt's post. He's prideful and boastful beyond decent. When people question how blessed he is to have this opportunity presented to his family, he responds by saying that the show really isn't the cause of their wealth...he was involved in lucrative business deals and the show is just icing. As he said, "they've always been wealthy...otherwise how did they get the farm in the first place" (paraphrasing). Downplaying the fact that they owe their livelihood and opportunity to witness to the show and the audience isn't humble or any other "christian" trait.

I'm not a Christian, but if the Roloff's are what Christianity is all about, then I am even more secure in my choice not to call myself a Christian! I can think of several better examples.

Christian said...

Under your definition of Christian - I have nothing to be jealous as I happen to have a Bible on my nightstand and end each day reading it. I also am a tithing member of my church and donate my time to the youth group it runs, and to the homeless shelter that is one of our charities.

People like Jeremy Roloff are why a LOT of people are afraid to find Christ - they know that followers like Jeremy have nothing but scorn for them. Jeremy with his nasty racist language makes it clear that blacks, mexicans, and yes homosexuals are not welcome in his church.

It is not Jeremy Roloff's place to judge who is good enough to find Christ. It is not his place to judge at all, and when he does judge, with his nasty comments and when *you* judge with your comments about others not being Christian, you both are deeming your judgement to somehow be above the Lord's.

Any "Christian" who dares to judge someone else as not being good enough to be accepted by the Lord is behaving badly. I hope Matt and Amy have truly made an effort to correct this behavior.

Auzzie said...

If the criteria for being a Christian is having a bible on the nightstand, everyone that stays in a hotel are Christians according to RoloffRules.

I see some things never change with some posters.

when did the show become all about Christianity, its a show about a family who the parents and one of the kids happens to be little people, its about there struggles and things they have to face as little people, its about love, and making people realize that they are just normal people, so they just happen to be Christians, big deal, i watch the show because i enjoy it, it really made me look at things differently, it made me care for my own family more, and value my friends more, i love this family, flaws and all, as far as their kids go i think they are great kids, just normal everyday kids, they can be Christians without dwelling on it, some Christians think every waking moment has to revolve around god, and chruch, and the bible, well sorry but get a life, and as far as the comments jeremy made online and other places go, if your gonna thrash him about it you better thrash every teenage kid in america because they all make comments like that every now and then, he just got targeted because he is on tv, so don't try and analyze the show so much just watch and enjoy, i know i do, if you don't like it or the things that the kids do or say or parents do or say just don't watch it, easy as that, some Christians just take things to far, and over think the way others should live, i respect this family and all they have been able to accomplish, running a farm(which i would love to visit one day) raising great kids, and overcoming obstacles others don't have to face, so love the show and the family or don't watch them

Anon - Jeremy is being called a a great christian simply for being on this show. I personally think that being a great christian involves a person doing more than being attractive and calling their supposedly beloved father figure their N word. If Jeremy is supposed to be a wonderful *Christian* boy (I'm willing to ignore how he's been a legal adult for over a year) then please point to the acts that MAKE HIM a wonderful Christian. For the record, reading the bible is something A LOT of people do, including myself, and I read it daily, and if you think that makes Jeremy James Roloff a WONDERFUL DEVOTED CHRISTIAN then you better be able to say you consider me the same.

You also might want to consider how you have never seen either myself or Jeremy James Roloff say "I love Jesus Christ, I am a Christian, and I read the Bible every day because I LOVE GOD WITH ALL MY HEART".

Jeremy gets a lot of credit for things he's never admitted to on camera. I would love to see this cool kid admit to loving Christ ON CAMERA... but I doubt he's willing to commit.

Anne B said...

Why would you doubt that Jeremy would hesitate to say on camera that he loves Jesus?

It's not Jeremy's choice what they choose to include in the show.

I don't even know why you would think something as crazy as Jeremy being "afraid" to say he loves Jesus.

You need to realize just because it's not on the show doesn't mean it doesn't happen. When the Roloffs have their chance, they talk about their love of God in their books and interviews.

I thought Molly's graduation showed her as a smart aleck. She gave her speech, and then when filing out she was sucking on a lollipop. Put her back into being a little girl, instead of one who just had major educational accomplishments. Very inappropriate. Also, Amy went alone to the graduation--dressed also inappropriately in blue jeans. Molly doesn't show respect for Matt. She deliberately threw paper on the floor and refused to pick it up. The kids ignore their father and back talk him. Those kids show no respect for their parents.
