As mentioned in a previous item, for the brand new season of Little People, Big World, we're introducing guest reviewers to the blog. Last season was sometimes hit or miss on reviews due to time restrictions, but this year so far 3 people have graciously stepped up and volunteered to be a regular staple of the blog so that you the read reviews of the new episodes if you happen to miss it or just want to see what other people thought. The new season is now exactly one week away! Monday October 12th at 8pm on TLC.
By the way, these pictures don't have much to do with our reviewers, except that they'll be reviewing the 5th season so I thought I'd break up the text with some flashbacks of the past, the Roloffs from the original opening of LPBW! How they've changed!
I would like to extend a big hearty "thank you" to all who have volunteered. We aim to provide all different view points and believe we have a good cross-section of people with varying opinions. Their reviews will be based on their own opinions; it's meant to be informative and entertaining.
American Idol had Simon, Paula and Randy. We are introducing our 3 guest "judges" or reviewers:
To give you an idea of what their general views are about Little People, Big World and the Roloffs, they each were asked 6 basic questions.
1. Describe your feelings about LPBW - by completing this sentence....Little People Big World is...?
Rap541's answer: "...a trainwreck I love watching" :)
Expressed's answer : "...The only reality tv show worth watching."
Martin2005's answer: "... an amazing look at a family who doesn't let their short stature stop them from enjoying life and living their dreams on their 32 acre farm in Oregon, we are taken into their world of nonstop adventure!"
2. Who is your favorite member of the Roloff family?
Rap541's answer: "Tie between Molly and Jake"
Expressed's answer: "Jeremy James Roloff! Loads of fun, the party is where ever Jeremy is at. He's a positive person and makes the best of every situation. He also seems like a regular guy that I'd love to hang out with. I don't get that chance, so I have to settle for watching him on LPBW :) He's pretty darn cute and sexy too! :)
Martin2005's answer: "My favorite character would have to be Zach, he struggles the most as the only child in a family of four who has the dwarfism, he is also the twin of an average size brother thats gotta be tough!"
3. Who is your least favorite member of the Roloff family?
Rap541's answer: "Tie between Zach and Jeremy with Jeremy probably edging Zach out for the win as he gets older."
Expressed's answer: "Jacob. I think the rest of the Roloffs would agree ;-0) He's bratty, annoys his siblings, he's moody and is too much of a suck when things don't go his way."
Martin2005's answer: "My least favorite character would have to be Molly, she doesn't interact as much with the rest of the family, we don't see her as often as we do the brothers and Amy or Matt and she has so much to offer!!"
4. What are you looking most forward to seeing in the new season 5 of Little People, Big World?
Rap541's answer: "I'm curious to see how the Roloffs handle the economy and if the twins mature at all."
Expressed's answer: "Seeing the British Virgin Island vacation with only Matt, Jeremy, Mueller and Jake. Jeremy and Mueller are bestest friends and a lot of fun together. Matt and Jeremy are great best together because they are the most like each other, creative and fun! With that group of guys, how can Jacob not be annoying for once!? Will those 3 guys rub off on him? Tune in to find out! I will be for sure!"
Martin2005's answer: "I'm interested in seeing how the family has come along over the past year, what plans for the farm Matt has up his sleeves this time!"
5. What's the best thing about LPBW?
Rap541's answer: "The hard core porn. No seriously, the genuine love Matt and Amy have for their kids. I can't take that away from them."
Expressed's answer: "The Roloffs acting like normal, imperfect people that I am and like everybody I know are too."
Martin2005's answer: "The best thing about LPBW is the family is not shy nor reserved about what they show on camera, they don't care if their house is a mess, they don't care if people look and stare at them in the grocery store, they are a true and genuine loving family with a tight bond, they'd have to be after all the obstacles they've faced."
6. What's the worst thing about LPBW?
Rap541's answer: "Watching the kids act badly to others or to each other and seeing it excused."
Expressed's answer: "There is too long of a time between real time when stuff is filmed and the time that we actually see it. By the time they officially tell us Jeremy and Zach are done with High School and are going to PCC, in real life they'll probably be graduating from PCC by then!"
Martin2005's answer: "...theres really not a lot of negativity about the show really, just the fact that someday the Roloffs will stop the cameras from rolling, the twins will go off to college and we'll miss them - I really hope Matt gets his health problems under control too."
Thanks again to all 3 of the guest reviewers who have graciously volunteered their time and effort. It all begins one week from now, next Monday October 12th as the new season of Little People, Big World starts at 8pm on TLC.
