Episode Review Written by Rap541
Oh hey, the Roloff parents have been living apart for what… 8 months? And they’re finally starting to work on the marriage by going on a ski trip? Because that’s reasonable and also wasn’t the whole wedding business that they have clearly abandoned supposed to save the farm??
Anyway….the tail end of 19 kids and screwing for jesus was disturbing because I think Michelle is starting to internalize that there won’t be a J-20.
So Audrey is in the haybales and finally speaks and is totally on board with being a reality whore and staging a scene. Matt pointedly asks if they will marry on the farm and of course they say yes. I mean, if they don’t say yes, it won’t be free and god knows they can’t be expected to live within their means. God, I would love to see the wedding Jeremy’s non tv show income pays for but he’s a whore so…..Also Matt and Amy coo over the ring TLC provided and Jeremy didn’t actually pay for as it is a trade out. Hey kids, is Audrey more of a slutty whore now that she’s been on tv more than Tori and is getting her wedding paid for by the tv show? Or is Tori still the gold digging slut? Is the trip to Australia officially more expensive than a wedding? Or is Audrey now the gold digging slut?
Amy and Matt bitch at each other. Amy calls it a short engagement. I note that people have been bitching about Audrey and Jeremy for years. Matt gets all pissy at Amy and haybales how Amy isn’t kissing his ass. Matt wanders into the main house and asks for something? I didn’t catch it, but he’s a bitch about it and insists it must be in the house. It is his chess set? That he’s storing in his office in the big house.
Amy proposes a trip with the kids. Matt snidely notes the kids help but it will be a disaster. Suddenly they are going on a trip. Molly is abroad. Amy notes it’s a last trip. Matt notes he’s gonna play chess and backgammon and of course Matt has to do a project. Apparently the project is to move the church. Jeremy notes that the most important thing is that mom and dad might sell the farm and since he wants to raise his kids there, he’s against selling. Nicely selfish that.
They fiddle with moving the church and even tho Matt is the one who proposed moving the church, he notes that he is doing it all at Jeremy’s behest.
Matt and Jeremy continue the pointless moving of the play church. Amy and the menfolk head off to ski. Jeremy insists he lives officially in California now. Amy bitches at Zach the majority of the time. Amy takes pictures. They talk about wedding costs. Amy pointedly implies stupid Zach will propose since he learned it from Jer-Bear.
At the ski lodge, Matt insists this is a scored winter games event and its all competition for the cameras. Really, it sounds dumbass. Because this is how real family act.
Amy continually messes up cross country skiing. There’s a lengthy montage of Amy falling. Then’s there’s a lovely montage of Matt sitting on his ass bitching out Amy as Zach beats her. Then Matt is hauled around for the snowman competition. They have extensive props for the snowmen. Somehow Matt is judging himself. There’s endless bitching and somehow Zach is racing a snowman downhill to determine a winner because why the eff not?
Jeremy and Jake snowboard and Matt is planning to do some sort of event. Matt moans and moans how scared he is and how he knows what pain is and really, then don’t downhill ski. Jake and Jeremy snowboard. Matt sends Amy to wax his skies. Matt notes that only a challenging real run is open, the ski resort does not have the beginner track open despite clear skies and nice weather. Kinda not buying the presentation there.
Matt of course whines endlessly how its all so dangerous and he has to tape up his own crutches and he’s so old and so fragile and yet he must ski despite the burning pain because well… not really articulated. Matt skies. Jake and Jeremy snowboard. Matt of course somehow goes missing and notes how it all took a toll on him. To listen to him talk, he may have almost died.
Oh yay, Roloff trivia. Zach’s head scares are noticeable. Jeremy waxes on how nice it is that mom and dad are separated and less nasty on trips because you know, its all about Jeremy’s fun.
Now they’re dogsledding? Its very noticeable that Matt consistently partners with Jeremy. Also the dogs all appear to be yellow labs. On sheer weight, Amy’s team is at a disadvantage. There’s also some sort of selfie rule?
Jeremy and Audrey skype for the cameras. Oh look, product placement chess.
Now we have the pathetic and bizarre point plan. Its all rather dumb.
Afterwards, Amy and Matt feel the total distance. Also they totally disagree on tree planting. Matt gives up on the conversation. Also the church looks really bad.
