Here is the episode review written by Rap541
To be fair as I rewatch, Jeremy very clearly states that “Adventure” and not “God/Jesus” brought him to Audrey. Also, Amy who seems like a very jealous momma, seems to very much like Tori. I so don’t get the fun of paddle boarding but then, I like distance running which on the surface is dull. Matt’s whole health gadget thing is annoying in that he chortles about hiding it from Amy. Also for the record, I think its pretty clear Matt was being a dick about the wedding. You want to know why? Everyone, seriously stop and consider.
Would Matt have ever told Jeremy and Audrey, even in jest, that he felt that they should delay their wedding? Serious put your hand on your Bible and swear you genuinely believe Matt Roloff would have ever told Jeremy to delay his wedding.
I also renew my objection to Matt whining how awful it was when Zach and Tori asked for the play church to be moved when I recall not one protest from Matt when Jeremy asked it to be moved in the first place. In fact I am utterly certain Matt proudly snotted how clever he was to make all the farm structures moveable. If you praised him when Jeremy asked, why in God’s name do you think Jeremy’s twin brother was wrong, and awful, and bad, to ask for the same effort?
So previously Amy and Matt are clearly about to declare the divorce. Huh. I wonder if Matt will address how he snotted how awesome he was in comparison to other reality show whores who got divorced. I bet Matt won’t say a word on how he’s better than Kate Gosselin.
Zach and Tori argue about the placement of the church and tent. They argue like newlyweds. Zach calls for daddy to decide and I instantly wonder if this was staged. I very much wonder if Jeremy being called to the farm from California is staged. Oh wait, I don’t wonder at all, as Matt drones on how awesome it is that Jeremy dropped his entire life and business to make a gate for the goats. If this actually was real, I would have no doubt about why Jeremy is a failure at photographgy. Seriously folks, as presented, he dropped everything in his life to make a gate for the goats.
Amy notes that Matt married her to “perform a duty” in having kids. Matt notes how nice it was when Amy just did his chores without bitching. There’s lengthy flashbacks of Matt whining how he’s never at fault for anything. Amy says she is sad about the divorce. Matt notes how he needs to make a decision – since Amy making one is you know, a woman, and Matt is the man and he needs to be the one to say it.
So finally they talk. Matt notes how he has to be the man and say “get out of my life, bitch”. Ironically Amy is actually the one to say divorce first. Matt doesn’t seem all that sad. Amy seems to feel it but also seems a bit like “how did we get here?”. Matt notes how he isn’t willing to force it. And end dramatic scene we all knew was coming from 2010.
Jeremy wanders in for no apparent reason. No mention of Jeremy’s job or how he can afford to fly in. Zach wants Tori to compromise. Amy notes how she’s making the two boys food.
Now we’re in Portland. Matt goes over how Jacob and Molly were told off screen and now he’s telling his elderly parents he’s pitching his bitch to the side. I love how Matt does the prayers for show with his folks – and before you bitch, Christian fans, cite me examples of Matt praying by himself or not in front of his own parents. Honey is appalled by the divorce. They’re obviously very guarded in front of the cameras. This is a very cold scene. Also, since it has already come up, the reason you only see Pop and Honey for like two minutes is that they got cut out of the show back in the day because they wanted to get paid and Matt said no. Honey even wrote a letter about it online.
There’s a fight over the tent placement. I sense Matt is with me in that I am so bored by all the stuff. Matt takes Zach aside and tells him to let Tori have her way over the tent. Tori notes in a haybale that she’s perfectly aware that Zach is caving to her.
Now we’re back to the “crisis” gate that required Jeremy to drop his life in Los Angeles. Jer drones on about precision and design and Matt notes how utterly perfect it is.
Amy heads out with “Lisa Dixon”. They talk about Jacob in that Amy calls herself an empty nester again. Lisa pokes the separation for the cameras. Amy says it’s a divorce thing. It’s sad. Amy haybales how sad it is. Amy wonder why it happened and diplomatically doesn’t mention what an ass Matt is.
Despite you know, the wedding, the most important thing to Matt is the animal gate. Matt notes how while Jeremy’s photography is “encouraged” – it’s understood that Matt’s mini-me will return to the farm and take over the farm (despite the divorce). Despite the whole micromanaging undertone where Matt is clearly in charge, Matt insists Jeremy is in charge of the animal gate. Matt insists the cement thingy is wrong. Matt makes Jeremy pull out the thingy and redo it. Jeremy isn’t pleased. He stomps on it. In theory it’s done well. I have no idea since no one explained anything.
Matt sticks Amy with telling the twins they’re divorcing. I bet she had to tell Jake and Molly by herself as well. Amy tells Zach that marriage is awesome. She feels bad, it’s obvious. I’ll even throw Jeremy a bone in that he looked hurt by the business. Amy notes how she’s pleased she held out until Jacob ran from the house.
There’s a commercial for the wedding.
The twins natter about the wedding. Everyone, well, Matt and Jeremy, whine about the positioning of the tent. Zach asks Jeremy to be the best man by giving him a bottle opener. Amy is all “I’m divorcing! Time to redecorate!” She wants guest rooms for guests. They tie on bandannas and do redecorating. I wonder if Lisa ever saw the hoard. They start with Jake’s room.
We’re still on redecorating. Amy notes how Matt actually made most of the choices. She and Lisa paint Jacob’s room dark brown.
Now we’re back to the gate project. Matt is all about the goats. I totally see why Jeremy is not building a photography business. Matt calls Amy to see the new gate. There is a couch out in the open for no reason. The gate is pretty ramshackle in that you have to steer the vehicle onto the board that triggers the gate. But since we’ll never see it again except in montages, who cares.
Amy and Lisa redo a table. She drones on about the divorce that again, we all knew was happening in 2010.
Next ep – Jeremy notes how clothes always look like ass on his brother.
A quick note – no regrets from Matt on how he crowed like the cock on the walk on how he was so much better than the TLC families who ended in divorce.
