Ok...so before I start on this weeks reviews, I just kinda wanna mention something that I have been needlessly thinking about the past couple of days. What I would like to know is how long did Matt know about the show getting cancelled before he made the announcement via his Facebook page? I mean, I know that TLC most likely didnt just approach Matt and the rest of the family one day out of the blue clear sky to say "Oh hey, by the way, your little show is done. Why? Because we are cancelling it and thats all there is to that." But I was wondering about that because if I remember correctly (which, of course, I do!! Haha) Matt made an announcement, again via Facebook that suddenly the Golden Pass farm tours were being suspended (unless already booked) due to "over booking" just a week or two before saying that this was going to be the final season of LPBW.
Also, just a couple of days ago actually, I went to the families website and randomly click on items in their shop. I noticed that when I clicked on the picture that you can have the Roloffs autograph, it said that it was unavailable and the weird thing about this was that it was recently available for people to buy. So yeah...that on top of the suspension of the Golden Pass tours has gotten me thinking that they are both related to the show being cancelled. I mean, honestly I dont know so I'm just saying but it would be great if someone could shed some light on that. BUT if those things are related to the shows cancellation, I bet the next thing to become "unavailable" is Matts Facebook page. Afterall, Matt has posted several times saying in the past couple of months that "Facebook" wants him to prove that its really him or the page will be taken down. I think though that after two or more months of "Facebook" warning Matt would have already resulted in the deletion of his profile.
So heres to you Matt: thanks for those subtle hints that your Facebook page will become the next unavailable thing to us, the members of the Roloff Cult. Damned those "Facebook" people!!
*Amy and Matt start this week by eating whipped cream out of a spray can. She gives Matt a whipped cream Sanchez!! (haha!)
*Matt is shown giving a speech to a group of kids talking about the word "midget" and how bad it is to use it. Good for Matt for trying to educate the youth of the nation on how to treat people with respect. Maybe one day one of those kids will rise up and change this world!
*Amy goes to Portland to give a speech at a rally and brings Molly and Jacob with her. The speech was too scripted. Gotta lighten it up Amy. Dont go word by word off the page. When you do that it doesnt feel genuine.
*By the way...this episode is good promotion for Amys and Matts speaking career!
*Matt once again talks about how outta shape he is and how it takes a toll on him when he does his speaking tours but wait...wasn't last weeks episode all about him getting into shape? Hmm...bad contrast there huh?
*Amy goes on a speaking bli....whoops!! I fell asleep because this was a complete snooze fest.
*Jacob gives Matt some kisses during a birthday celebration for Matt. So if Jeremy is Matts favorite, why is it that Jacob is the only one that is ever shown giving love to Matt by kissing him? Someone answer that please!!
*Wait...hold on. Now Jacob and a friend help Matt cook hamburgers. Again, where is Jeremy helping out his dad? Come on Jeremy defenders, I'm talking AT you!
*By the way, this episode is supposed to be about how out of sync the family is when Amy is gone but they all seemingly acted their usual way and the house looked like it always does. There wasn't anything majorly different.
*I am currently eating dinner during this episode so I'm not paying a whole lotta attention to it but we'll see what I can do with it.
*Matt gets a "new" HUGE truck. I say "new" because we all know that he most likely already had it. It kinda reminded me of the truck Mike used to drive, only on steriods.
*A flashback to the first season or two shows Matt arguing with Zach and Matt talks about how he use to run away from home. Yeah Matt...good job. Way to say, "yeah man...when I disagreed with my parents I would just run away." That actually sounds a lotta bit like something my sister did when she was younger!! No joke!
*I think this whole idea of Matt not getting along with Zach is waayy too dramatisized. Every father and son have their disagreements so it's not a real big deal here. There is totally too much scrutiny placed on their relationship just for entertainment purposes...which really isnt entertaining at all.
*Some sex talk. Anybody noticed how much adult content is being featured on the show?
Last week it was all about butts and now this week its about sex. Hmm...?
*Zach throws up after drinking a milkshake. YAY!! Thats good to see and hear while I'm eating dinner! Thanks Roloffs!! :-|
*Jeremy is shown not wanting to talk. What!? Are you serious!? Thats the first time in LPBW history and I for one am super stoked that he didnt speak!
*As Matt is driving he talks about what would happen if another car suddenly swerved into their lane and crashed head on into them. He ponders what it would be like to be all bloodied and laying on the side of the road waiting for 911 to respond. Now Matt, didn't you have something similar to that happen to Jacob with the trebuchet? Maybe you should think about that and how unfun that was before saying something so ignorant.
*Amy and Jeremy go speed boating. Wasn't that a long time ago as part of Amy's first charity event?
*The long awaited reunion with the Salman family ends the show.
*It was very nice to see them again and I must say that I hope that God continues to bless them as they continue through their own personal journey.
You know...we complain a lot about the seemingly trivial things in our own lives and we forget about the fact that there are a bagillion other people in this world who have and who are currently going through much worse predicaments than we are and the Salman family is all the proof of that. So much love to all of the members of the Salman family. If any of them are reading this for some reason, please remember what I always say... TO TRULY SEE WELL YOU MUST HAVE FAITH!
