Matt Roloff is not dead; Matt's health

We don't normally publish other items other than the reviews the night that the episodes airs, but due to the enormous amount of inquiries and traffic, we're making an exception.

In the last few hours, our site alone has received over 20,000 hits -- most of whom are concerned fans in a frenzy wondering about Matt Roloff's health, wanting to know if Matt Roloff is okay, worried that Matt Roloff had a heart attack and died like Mike Detjen.

Matt Roloff is fine. He's been posting away on Facebook for months. He was in Hawaii on vacation, in Michigan for a Basketball game, in Canada giving a speech, traveling for other engagements, he will be on Fox Morning show very soon. Matt Roloff did not die. He is fine.

It was a cliffhanger to entice viewers to watch Little People, Big World when it returns for Season 6 - September 6th.

Judging by the amount of traffic and the inquiries, it is working perfectly and certainly got people talking about Little People, Big World.

In fact, Matt is in New York snapping these photos of himself hours ago and happily posting away on his Facebook fan page.



June 14th Matt Roloff: Zach and I made it home safe ...just in time to host a big fundraising party yesterday for our friend Senator Bruce Starr and Future Oregon Governor Chris Dudley. Now after a medium night sleep.. I'm off to NYC. to do the FOX morning show (Fox and friends) and a number of other media junkets. Plane leaves in 90 min.. I better hustle.

June 14th Matt Roloff: In crazy times square. Got to get up at 5:00am ... Its 11:45 pm Why is everyone still out? NY is wild.


http://www.facebook.com/RealMattRoloff

So concerned viewers can rest easy. Matt Roloff is alright. He did not die, you didn't miss a death announcement. It was just a cliff-hanger to fire up viewers into a frenzy so they'll make sure to tune into LPBW Season 6 in September.

Matt was on "Fox and Friends this morning.



EDIT: Interesting...Matt just deleted his NY postings and the picture. The internet is buzzing with "Matt Roloff Heart Attack" and Matt Roloff Died" rumors. The kind of thing that the spammers then attach onto and re-post that headline. Anyhow -- sites like ours that set the record straight for worried viewers, cite Matt's Facebook page the picture of him in Times Square last night to calm viewers...Now Matt has deleted his recent postings.

That sneaky Matt Roloff! ;-)

It truly is classless. Shame on TLC and the Roloff family.

Playing on people's emotions.

Poor Mike D did die and they did use it as a preview. I can believe that some people actually think that something serious happened to Matt.

Anonymous said...

NOT a very good tactic to use...We were so concerned that something terrible had happened to Matt...To have the season end this way, expecting that it would increase next season's ratings and just keep people guessing-WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

Anonymous said...

Did they need to do this to keep their show on the air? I hope they can see how much we all really enjoy sharing their lives with them and understand how that ending was really not the best. However, didn't everyone realize that it was pumpkin season - isn't that in October? And it is June 14th. Viewers really need to step back and remember the shows are all tape-delayed. They are also edited to show what the Roloff's who do produce the shows want us to see.

Anonymous said...

This was not right, are we to believe that Matt has spoken of death several times to bring in viewers and Amy always critizing threatening divorce. I am begining to wlecome the freshness of the Little Couple as they live and respect one another. Why do people think they need so much drama to get attention. In the end the families are only hurting themselves like the Goslens did.

Anonymous said...

I am angry that you upset me so much for no reason other than to entice viewers for next season.This may be reason enough to not watch at all. How dare you play with our emotions. Some people actually care about Matt.

Anonymous said...

I knew it would end with something dramatic, but what was "odd" was how Matt appeared to be completely unconscious and nobody was calling for an ambulance. I'll be tuning in when the show comes back on in the fall to see what exactly the outcome of tonight's show will be...mission accomplished, TLC.

Anonymous said...

There's are much better ways to get people to tune in for the next season than leaving concerned viewer wondering about the welfare of anyone in the Roloff family. Shame on you, next time think before you end a season like that on any family program.

Rosie said...

Everyone needs to get over themselves. TLC was showing us real life. I will continue to watch this show as long as TLC has it on air. Go Roloffs!

Anonymous said...

Why are Matt and Amy being so coy and reluctant about the future of the twins? The twins obviously have little motivation and ambition, have been very sheltered, and quite spoiled living as they do.

Matt and Amy need to sit them down, make them an offer of real employment with a regular salary, and let them begin running the farm! College and the real world is not for them. Their mom and dad need them more on the farm than anything else.

so sad......... said...

Did matt and amy roloff know how the finale show would end.I hope not because for a family i hold alot of respect for.My view of the show would change.

Megan B said...

Matt and Amy have the chance to review every episode and yes, they know exactly how the episode would end. This is a ratings/money grab and nothing more. They didn't "run out of tape" for the season at the moment Matt fainted (if he in fact did). Remember, they have several came crews that shoot probably 40+ hours of footage a week for several hours during filming season, and that is all distilled down into the storyboard highlights they can find for a roughly 20-week, twelve-hour season total (by the time you account for commercials and titles). Ending the season with this cliffhanger was a conscious choice for all involved, including Matt and Amy, who are only doing the show as a service to enlighten us all! LOL.

Anonymous said...

When they found Matt collapsed on the floor it was obviously for dramatic effect....a clear flashback to the classic movie scene where Elliot finds ET near death in a ditch.......
Maybe Matt's finger will glow next season and the family will leave Reese's Pieces out that will lead to his spaceship urn!!

Anonymous said...

TLC really needa to take continual lessons (maybe Matt and Amy, too!!) from Discovery. One of their greatest loved reality stars, Captain Phil Harris, actually DID die after a season had ended, with all fans knowing of his health problems. I HIGHLY recommend watching the entire set of their seasons, from season 4 to season 6, which is still in weekly shows with their season 6 ending shortly. It's called Complete Class, not Fishing for Viewers. You just lost this long-time viewer of LPBW, and probably all TLC programming. I already refused to watch any of the new Kate plus Unending Whining!

Lois said...

Watched the show and saw Matt lying there so very still on the floor. So was concerned about his health. It's about 3 am here and I could not sleep until I found out the Roloff family is alright.
Lois a fan of the show.

Maggie said...

I too thought Matt had died and passed on to be with Mike. I needed to check online to make sure Matt was ok.

Jeremy didn't react badly. I thought he was in shock. No one knows how they will react in that situation. God bless the Roloffs and continue to praise God.

Anonymous said...

So Matt didn't die at the end of the show. I'm glad he is alright. Praise God.

Anonymous said...

JUST NOT RIGHT TO END THE SHOW WITH MATT LYING ON THE FLOOR. ALSO AMY IS SO NEGATIVE. DON'T THINK SHE LOVES MATT AND IS VERY SELF CENTERED. THEY ALSO SHOULD HIRE SOME HOUSEHOLD HELP AS THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IS ALWAYS A MESS. AMY DOESN'T THINK SHE NEEDS HELP AND THE KIDS ARE NOT EXPECTED TO KEEP THEIR ROOMS TIDY.

Justin said...

It was a scuzzy thing to do, but there was any truth in it at all, I'm betting he wasn't on the ground for more than 15 seconds. He was on his back when Jeremy walked around the desk. Then they cut to Jeremy standing over him, now on face down, then they show Amy come in and replay the second when Jeremy was standing over him. Jeremy moves his leg and bends his knee, that's how you know they're just looping the same second again. I'm assuming he was talking while he was on his stomach.

The season finale is further proof positive that this show, like most of these reality shows, are first and foremost a business with the primary objective of earning profits. Creative editing and "producing" generate the drama that keeps people watching and the cash rolling in.

Kudos to the Roloffs for being smart enough to take full advantage of a good thing. They provide entertainment to many viewers and they generate revenues for the network and themselves.

Dorothy said...

You guys scared the heck out of me. I cried my eyes out when he fell and didn't move. Thank god he's alright. I hate the way some of the family members have been treating him lately after all he has done for them. And then to see that my heart broke. So thank you for letting us know he's fine.

Anonymous said...

I enjoy the Roloff family but it doesn't need a cliff hanger! It's been a learning experience to see that little people cope so well in a world not made easy for them. I don't however see any warmth between Amy and Matt...It's too bad really for they have a wonderful family!

Lynn said...

I do like the show. But was shocked by the ending. Obviously, he is okay because we would have heard any news back in the fall of '09 when the show was taped.
And re: their house - it is a shame that such a beautiful renovation has been ruined by clutter and mess and disregard for one's possessions. Those boys should be made to clean their room daily and keep it clean or else have their many vehicles and privileges taken away. There is a fine line between easy going parenting and just spoiling the child. The kids have had it too easy. They need to take responsibility for their futures and their bedroom!

Anonymous said...

Very unclassy as said above if this was done only for the drama and to snare us into watching next season. Shame on producers and whoever thought of this. I think they owe their loyal viewers an apology. And, been too much whining and carrying on between Amy and Matt this year. And, are those twins really that lazy???? I really liked this show for most part, but not sure anymore, if I'll be a return viewer. Too much crap!

Anonymous said...

REALLY CRAPPY publicity stunt! Shame on you TLC!
I also agree with a previous poster ~ the marriage seems doomed and those boys need to have a little guidance... they are spoiled, not made to do anything around the house and all they want to do is lay around and sleep or play video games! They need to wake up & decide what to do with the rest of their lives. And WHY doesn't anyone ever clean up anything around that house?!? It is beautiful, but it looks like a DUMP already!

Beckye said...

I really don't think it was necessary to overplay a fainting spell. He is diabetic and probably wasn't eating correctly. TLC, please don't play games with us !! I will return to see the show, but dramatics like this is not necessary. I watch the show for reality purposes. If I wanted to watch DRAMA, I would watch a GREY ANATOMY or something !

Anonymous said...

I can't believe people still think that the Roloffs are a real family. People, this is a business for them! Check out the credits... Amy and Matt are producers on the show. What does that mean? It means that they were in a meeting and were part of the decision of pulling this stunt. Remember that Matt is a good salesman. These people and TLC are playing on your emotions to get you to comeback and watch next season's premiere. They do it all the time because, like Jeremy said in his facebook page "fans are stupid" (sorry, I don't remember the exact quote), and they feel that they can manipulate you like suckers.
If the guy had a real heart attack (which I seriously doubt) how come the camera man didn't even react. No one did. And don't give me that crap about Jeremy being in shock. Come on the guy is 20 years old and a total loser. Zach too. The Roloffs already can see the writing on the wall and they are going to make these too losers the managers of the farm. They are always doing that... Oh, Jeremy is such a good sucker player he is going to be a pro sucker player... Oh, Zach is suck a good sucker player we are going to have him manage a pro team... a pro team... Can you believe the arrogance of these people... Oh, the boys are such great students that they are just talking remedial courses at Portland Community College... Oh, and they are doing so good that we need them to start thinking of running the farm.... not at farm hands like most responsible people would, but as managers... right! "because I (Matt I mean) might die soon and they need to know how to ruin... sorry, run the farm".
I can't believe people still fall for this crap. Taking Molly out of the equation... which by the way, Molly is either a mutation or Amy cheated on Matt at some point.
This family, except for molly, is a total disgrace!. Matt is even showing his new republican/Tea Bagger colors. Finally decided to use his republican friends to hurt Washington county Government offices. He thinks he has a divine right to just make as much money as possible and no one has the right to tell him how to run his business or pay any taxes. I can't wait for an audit of their books and charity work. I can see these people going to Jail. Maybe a mini jail.
Of course, TLC will be there to show us how low these losers can get. Remember, TLC is The Learning Channel so... Have you losers learn yet?
Don't act normal, go to work and like responsible lives. That's is too booooring... no, become a freak, if you aren't one already, and show the world all your arrogant abusive behavior and we will put you on TV so people call you a STAR. By the way reality shows don't have real stars. People that act in movies and in real TV shows with scripts and work for years at that trade are real Stars.
Shame on you Matt and Amy for closing the season this way. Shame on you for turning Jeremy and Zach into total LOSERS. (and NO I am not giving you any credit for Molly... She is the way she is not because of you but despite your terrible parenting skills.

We all should have known that this was a trick to get us to comeback to their show because the camera men didn't even do anything when he pretended to fall off the chair on to the floor. Don't you think (me too) that the cameras wouldn't have continued to roll when he was down or all the people in the crew would have done something if it really happened not just his family running to help him?

Anonymous said...

I'm very disappointed in the Roloff family. I love the show and expect more of this family. Won't be tuning in again next year - these type of stunts turned many people,including myself, off of Kate & Jon plus 8. Remember the public can love you one day and loose interest the next.

People! This is a "Cliff Hanger" as with ANY season finale to any program. You have to keep "Them wanting more" so we come back. You go with what works, and stunning finales work! Calm down, quit your complaing.

Anonymous said...

Oh, by the way, they pull the same stunt when Jacob and Mike had their trebuchet accident. They milked people's concern for ratings. I find that despicable and a horrendously manipulative thing to do to people that care for them. I am never watching this show again. I also wan to urge you to boycott the show so is taken off the air. We can't continue rewarding people for bad behavior. There is a lot of decent loving people out there that would never even consider TV as a way to make a living.
Maybe a the beginning it was about educating people about midgets. Well, today I really have a bad opinion about them.
This show needs to go off the air before it does more damage. I go kids here that think that living like Jer and Zach might be cool.
Well, it is not cool and don't let my kids watch the show anymore.

SHAME ON YOU TLC FOR SHOWING SUCH BAD EXAMPLES OF PARENTING.

Anonymous said...

You know Debbie. If it was my soap or an episode of Star Trek I wouldn't mind but this is supposed to a be a "reality show". How would you fell if you got a voice mail where I tell you I am having a possible heart attack and you hear me collapse and then I hang up the phone and you don't hear anything next until you buy a plane ticket and visit your father and realize he had a minor thing and decided not to call you to update you just to manipulate you into coming to see him.
You would feel used and very angry. So stop making excuses for the Roloffs. They are both producers of the show after all. They made the choice to continue using tactics like these to keep the shows ratings out of the dump.

Anonymous said...

It was OBVIOUS this was scripted BS. The fake dub ins of "what happened", "Father!"...Amy standing over him completely unconcerned, looking as if she was ready to kick him and say "Is it dead?"

Pathetic, cheap, scripted BS. That's what LPBW is now. Hasn't been about the struggle to live in a 'big world' since the end of the 2nd season. The jig is up Roloffs. Only the foolhearty still buy your propoganda. Those of us with a brain, do not buy it for one second. Your T.V. days are numbered so you'd better start saving some of that cash for the cold days ahead!

Glad to see he's doing better this morning! :)

Who is with me? 3 cheers for honest and raw reality tv!

Oh no, not Molly too. Get her out of that family. They're even taking her to the darkside by getting sweet Molly into the lies and deception.

"Father?" If you were listening she sounds like she's trying to hold back a laugh.

Brandon said...

Matt is such a slime bucket! Deleting those posts to preputuate the dead and ill-health rumors.

You know ego Matt is just loving all the attention and worry about his health.

What a scuzz ball! Nice Christian values there!

Laurie Collins said...

The Roloffs have no morals and no common decency! I'm sure they'll try to blame it on TLC for any negative reaction they get, but the Roloffs know exactly what they're doing.

Plenty of people including myself have been in a situation finding a loved one on the floor after collapsing knows the pain and horror of that.

For them to use it as a cliffhanger is DISGUSTING.

Ron and Peg Roloff - Gordon and Pat Knight, you have raised horrible kids to grow up to be immoral adults with no values.

To top it off Matt continues to play games by DELETING his entries last night so he can continue the facade instead of dispelling the worry and concern like a decent person would.

Scratch that, a decent person would never have been apart of such a despicable stunt.

Roloff Family - You are horrible people with no morals or character.

Ah hell, I fell hook line and sinker for this....I feel like such an idiot. I'm not crazy about the Roloff's but still, it really upset me and I was truly worried.
Keep digging your own grave Roloff's; you should be ashamed of yourselves. You all make me sick

You proved my Anonymous June 15, 2010 12:52 AM perfectly. It was a Discovery cameraman that FOUND Captain Phil of Deadliest Catch paralyzed in his stateroom on the Cornelia Marie. It was the cameraman who yelled for everyone, who got into action and got Captain Phil medivac'd to Anchorage, where he died a few days later. At least I have no worry that Discovery will consider any application from any TLC cameraman. Matt, Amy, et all, don't consider applying after your show is canned, either. You aren't even qualified as an 'extra' for any episode of "Cake Boss" in any capacity. Buh bye - a shame you've not saved a dime of your money. Someone will have a nice home for a cheap price at the bank sale. The new owners will enjoy it, after the months it takes a professional company to clean it!

Anonymous said...

Zach and Jeremy are close to 20 years old. They are both over-indulged brats. They should be told that their personal expenses, and the upkeep of their cars, are now on their shoulders. Watch how motivated they get when they don't have gas for their cars. Matt has been disrespected in that family for years now(especially by Zach) I admit he is a hand full, but Amy acts like a spoilt child. It's time she remembers that she is the grown up, not one of the kids. Jacob seems to be the forgotten child. He needs the discipline the most! Molly is a sweetheart. She acts more mature than her parents. I wish the best for the Roloff family, but this latest "is he dead" stunt was wrong. I was trully upset thinking Matt was sick or even dead.

Theresa said...

Everyone needs to calm down and stop judging and hating...it's a show folks....and we all know you have to keep the public interested. I am sure Matt does have a lot of health issues, so don't jump to conclusions. The kids are very spoiled, but a lot of kids are spoiled nowadays. I think Matt is a nice guy and so is Amy. I wish they would put 'their' relationship first...not the kids. It would empower both of them, if they stuck together on issues, instead of having a divided front and fighting in front of them. It is really hard to raise kids in this modern world. I wouldn't want to try it again, that's for sure. It cost too much and the Thank You's are few and far between. I find having a dog much more rewarding than it was to raise kids!

Anonymous said...

What do you expect...they enlarged their house and made it like a resort....the mom does most the shopping and cooking and laundry....the house has looked better this season...they must have got a cleaning lady. They have a heated pool and a pool table and game room. If I was the twins, I wouldn't want to leave or get a real job....I would be pretty happy with the status quo.... I do like Matt and Amy...just wish they would stick together and have a united front in front of the children and not try to compete for their love. Matt may not have much longer to live...so be nice to him.

Sandie said...

I think there's a fine line between keeping the public interested and manipulating. I did enjoy this show at the beginning, I guess because I believed they were portraying their real lives. But now...... I just don't like hypocrisy and the figurative (and literal?) laughing behind the fans' backs. I won't be watching again. Phooey!

Anonymous said...

Lousy trick to play on people who watch the show.

Amy treats Matt so badly all the time, what is her
problem? Everything she has is because of what
he has done. She needs to appreciate that.

The kids are fine, except for Jacob who is a
spoiled, obnoxious brat and is going to be a real handful as he gets older.

Sasha said...

All I can say is that it's pitiful what has happened since the show began 5 years ago. All that money and fame have gone to their heads!
(Except for Molly. I think there's hope for her).
It's really pathetic to end the season like they did.
That some people really believed Matt died or something. That's a great way to treat your fans,Roloffs.Don't you realize that they are the ones that made it possible for you to have everything that you have now?
I thought this was a reality show. HA! HA!
Why didn't you just do like "Dallas" and have a "Who Shot Matt Roloff" cliffhanger?
You have now lost my respect.Very sad.

Shadow said...

I guess what I find most amusing/sad in all of this is that anyone for a moment would think something serious had ACTUALLY happened to Matt. ANYONE who has watched the show knows that they are routinely MONTHS (years?) behind on events, so anything taking place on the show had to have been 6-12 months ago. If you take even a nanosecond to stop and think, you would realize that any news like this would NOT be a secret that long -- the TV blogs and news outlets would be all over it. We all knew about the trebuchet accident WHEN IT HAPPENED, we all knew about the DUI arrest WHEN IT HAPPENED. So you know NOTHING SERIOUS happened, even without this website to tell you that. THINK, PEOPLE, THINK!!!!! Sheesh...

Greg said...

I agree Shadow. I feel bad for some people, but do they not understand that it's not a live show? All over the internet suckers are saying "I was crying, I came to try and find out if Matt had passed on"

The only thing I can say (and death is different) but the mainstream media sucks when it comes to the Roloffs. They seem to wait to get most of their news from the Roloffs themselves!!

I'll use the DUII as an example. I don't have the exact date, but Matt got arrested on something like June 12th.

The media didn't latch onto it until July. Weeks had gone by before they reported it.

Roxanne said...

Shadow, I'm surprised people think Matt might have died too. But I think there is a lot of people that watch the show and never use the internet for the Roloffs.

Remember Mike died in June. They didn't air the episode until December. I remember being surprised how many people after the show posted that they had no idea Mike had died and were so sad because they had just found out on the show.

TLC just went from bad to worse....I am not going to watch any of their rediculous shows any longer...they are only out for ratings not decent shows

Anonymous said...

When I saw Matt on the floor, I never thought for a second that it could've been a heart attack. I thought more along the lines that he is a diabetic (and doesn't really seem to control it very well) and his blood sugar was way off. Prior to his fall, he looked like he had a headache and he was drinking water a lot...

Anonymous said...

These people are pure scum. My 80 year old neighbor was sad and crying because she was concerned about that douche bag, Matt. She is very old and frail. She watches the show all the time and didn't seem to understand what I told her about how they manipulate people with stuns like these just to raise the ratings. She couldn't believe it. She wanted to visit the farm to make sure. I found out that the Roloffs are charging 16 dollars for autographed pictures and 250 dollars for people to ride around with Matt, or any of the others, in a mule for 20 minutes.
These people might be midgets but their greed is gigantic and their morals are in the tank.

Kapper said...

Shadow, is it really necessary to berate those of us who fell for this scam? Yes, in retrospect I realize it was stupid of me to believe something was seriously wrong w/Matt. I didn't think of checking online at the time. Stupid? Yeah, but being human, I tend to do stupid things once in a while. I'm sure YOU don't though...

Shadow said...

Kap, I do plenty of stupid things. Being called on them helps me learn and avoid doing them again. For instance, I stopped watching this show about three "seasons" ago, when it became apparent where it was headed. Now I just visit Spirits for Rap's and Expressed's excellent and entertaining recaps and save myself an hour a week. Sorry if you were offended, but I was ASTOUNDED that so MANY people would not stop for 5 seconds to realize that the show is set well in the past, and that anything happening to the "star" would surely have been all over the news some time ago. Being human, I tend to be amused by people doing stupid things. I'm sure YOU don't, though...right? :>

Rick said...

TO: The Roloffs,
Never miss your show. You all are remembered in my Prayers. Matt, Glad to see GOD has given you still more days for pumkins.
In Christ,

Rap541 said...

Shadow - you know - I like Expressed's reviews a lot. I read over them and see things I missed, and Expressed has really grown as a writer. She also stands pretty firm on what she likes... but doesn't ignore the obvious.

I just thought it needed to be said, since Expressed and I often come at opposite points.

J.T. said...

If any one can recall before and during the over seas trip Matt was looking kind of frail and weak looking he also seemed to have lost some weight during those shows and he did get sick on the trip remember they left him behind in the taxi van on one of the tours and it wasn't un till the kids went back to check up on him was when he decide to go on ahead and join them on that particular tour so what they should us at the end of the season finale show was all what was going on with matt at the very beginging of the 5th season he simply was not well so what I am trying to say is that they realy did a bum bang up job of closing the season out with something that had already happen at the start of the season poor roloffs and tlc network it seems that they have not just lost their morals but are also at a lost for what kind of material to come up with for their show since they went into a new direction that just goes to show you the show is not real any more it is now a stage drama reality scripted soap opera show that no one cares to look at if we want to see drama show we can go turn to ABC NBC CBS TNT CW FOX USA networks for a one hour drama scripted show to you the roloff family and tlc get with the program that you all introduce to use back in 2006 real live reality show about the way life is in the roloff house rather than this fake phoney garbage that you are all showing us these past two seasons. there is this old saying if ain't broken well then don't try and be the jerk to fix it if ain't broken cause when you do fix something that is not broken well then all you are doing is setting yourself up for complete failure and this is the path that this show has now taken so go back to the oringial concept of the show before it is to late and before your season Finale turns into being your series finale.

Kapper said...

Point well taken, Shadow. Most likely I got annoyed because I didn't put 2 and 2 together.
I over-reacted, no offense taken!

Shadow said...

OMG - has anyone seen the preview for the next Cake Boss? ONE OF THE EMPLOYEES COLLAPSES ON THE FLOOR!!!!!!

TLC is PATHETIC.

mythoughtis said...

really interesting that they do the entire show in the middle of pumpkin season, even the mentions of Matt's health... and then they end it with something that happened way back in early summer. If this was Matt and Amy's choice, it is really poor choices... if it was TLC's choice... well it means they don't really do a reality show at all.

Anonymous said...

It's amazing that TLC, ostensibly promoting a reality show, dabbles so much in dramatic-effect fiction. I've got to give them this, though: I no longer believe any of their schtick.

I'm expecting next episode to be a carbon copy of The Simpsons, Who Shot Mr ejaz.

It's a show - and on the whole very funny - loved the mushroom vs. artichoke argument -
Everyone needs to either watch it for what it is or quit watching - because truly it is none of our business what they do!!!

I like little people big world, I think that Matt is great and that Amy treats him terrible, The boys are so immature and Molly seems like the most normal one. Why do we not see anything of Matt's parents? They seemed like nice normal people, Amy's father was rude too Matt and I didn't like him. He should be glad that Amy even found a husband as good as Matt.

I have watched the show for along time and right from the start it was obvious that Amy is over Matt,I have never seen her show any genuine care for him,every comment is sarcastic,rude, negative.She always feels so sorry for herself as though she is the only mother who has had the major responsibility,of raising the children.Matt can be annoying without doubt,but for a guy with very little mobility he has given his family a very comfortable lifestyle,we all as young couples go through tough times,but look what he has achieved.We have heard many times how she had to work two jobs at once along the way,as have many husbands and wives.The children are never expected to do any work or respect their father,how can they when all the hear is how little use he is to anyone.I am at this moment listening to how bad Matt is for going away on mothers day and the kids birthday,but watching the show it is obvious he is of the opinion that no one cares anyway.He is no angel but I have never heard him critisize her in a sarcastic way.I dont watch the show as much now because it is uncomfortable watching him begging everyone for a little attention.

I so agree with many of you about the conduct of the family. I love Matt & Molly but Zach's mouth & attitude toward his father(who gives him the world & much more than many other kids get)is despicable. It's no wonder though because Amy does nothing but constantly belittle & bad mouth Matt in front of all the kids. She shows him no love or support. She lets her kids get away with so much. If Matt has an opinion or wants to be involved in the parenting & discipline Amy & the kids (especially mouthy Zach) they just tell him he does not know what he is doing, they don't take him seriously & they berate & belittle the man who has given them a wonderful life that anyone else would be so proud & grateful to have. The 2 jobs Amy worked were both part-time!! But then she whines about being a mom & doing her other chores-of course we know one thing she is very lazy about doing & that's cleaning that beautiful home. All the boys & Amy are complete slobs. It's disgusting-clothes, pillows & whatever else all over the floors so you can't see the floors. Probably food on the floors too. I couldn't get over the time Zach put the toilet plunger on the kitchen counter-yuck. The boys are incredibly lazy, spoiled, lack discipline & all they want to do is sleep, eat & play. Must have been a dog or cat in a past life. lol Molly is a doll-very responsible, works hard at getting good grades & is mature way beyond her years. Kudos to her & she does this all on her own but Miss Negativity (Amy) will take full & sole credit for it all. I see that Matt tries to teach all the kids excellent life lessons and when they cooperate, shut their mouths & drop the negativity their mom taught them they can get a lot out of what Matt is trying to leave them with as a legacy.
I too was very concerned with what had happened to Matt when he fell & that was a tasteless thing to do to us viewers by leaving us hanging for so long. Why do they think they need a cliffhanger? People will watch or not watch-either they love the show or they don't.
Shame on everyone involved for doing this-the best it will do is cost them a lot of viewers. Please don't pull any of these stunts with the Little Couple! I love them...Jen is such a little sweetheart and Bill is a doll with a great sense of humor. What I love most about them is they are really in love and it shows. Very refreshing after watching Amy Roloff show so much contempt & no affection toward her husband. If she is so unhappy why does she stick around-waiting for insurance money, perhaps? Matt loves her so much but it's not reciprocated. So sad.
