The following episode review was written by Rap541
On watching the rerun, I am amused at how Jeremy is presented as giving up his hugely successful career doing photo shoots. My basic question is “When did Jeremy fly to NY for a paid shoot?” since he openly mentioned how he flew to NY for an awesome shoot, and also – if he was so busy, why were he and Audrey always off camping? And why was Jeremy constantly flying home?
So the new episode. Amy is done with self pity, and Zach wants a budget. Apparently there is porta potty issues. I am reminded of Matt cheerfully telling the Manuel twins to crap and piss in the woods in episodes of yesteryear.
The wedding is a month and a half away so its early June and everyone is wearing heavy coats. It rains and hails. Zach is budget conscious. Ironically I think a weather alert chimed as I watch. Matt notes that the budget is an issue. Apparently there’s free glasses, and Matt is all “I have free glasses from Pondo when Pondo went out of business…..” Was there EVER any budget talk about Jer and Audrey’s wedding? I don’t recall one moment where Matt or Amy suggested on screen that Jer and Auj should consider less expensive options.
Now we’re on to Amy and Lisa Dixon and the charity and the possible mud run. Yes, apparently a haboob is about to strike Phoenix as I watch as we’re getting weather alerts on the cable channel,
Now we’re on to Zach and Tory’s signature drink. He makes a funny joke about a “babymaker” drink. The drink sounds like a fancy lemondrop in a mason jar. They come up with several fancy drinks. They name the drink after the dog.
Back to the mud run on the farm. Amy and Lisa are roaming around. The mud run looks like it is before the wedding. The swamp fort looks like it is pretty ramshackle. Amy wants all the kids in the mud run. Matt rides up on a vehicle. Matt is appalled at the idea of doing a mud run. He openly shits on the whole idea and oh look, another weather alert. Matt tells her he is gonna tell her how she’ll be doing it because he has a cock and she needs to shut her bitch mouth. He repeats how he doesn’t want a mud run and will spend his time bitching about it and not supporting it.
So Matt stops Jacob from mowing the lawn to tell him about the mud run. Matt tells Amy to shut her bitch mouth and accept his dominance. She runs the course to make some point to him. Matt openly sneers at her.
Zach and Tory try cakes. Zach clearly likes poppyseed cake, and apparently Tory likes it as well. Zach is all “poppyseed it is”.
Now Matt notes how they have to scrounge for the wedding since they are super poor and all the cheap shit is hidden in various barns but they have to go cheap because it’s Zack. Apparently Matt, like Amy, is a hoarder, and there’s some secret stash of wine glasses, chafing dishes and cables. Matt notes how awesome he is and shits on the mud run for charity idea again.
Matt proudly notes how he’s doing the entire mud run that he previously hated and yuks it up for the cameras. Amy wants the courses to be set to allow for different skill levels. Essentially Matt is an ass about it. Amy notes Matt needs to deal. Matt is condescending to her.
Matt notes how the place is a pigsty for the wedding. There’s like… hoarding everywhere. Matt thinks clearing out the secret barns is super important for the wedding. Matt decides Jeremy needs to track ho shit. For some reason there’s a ton of couches on the farm and Matt is all “We need to smash couches no one ever sees on camera to prepare for the wedding!”.
Jeremy notes how bees have moved in mysteriously, despite how he was featured in an episode several years prior where bees were intentionally introduced to the farm. I am pretty sure the bee episode is on dvd, Jer, if you need to catch up. Killer bees attack various Roloffs.
Amy notes how much there is to do. Sullivan is there. Amy orders people about. Oh look Audrey has time off from her prestigious job to attend the mud run. Matt notes he now loves the mud run and how he firmly believes Zach will totally suck at it. There is concern over the lack of mud.
Amy makes food for Molly and Zach. Amy sends Zach without food to do chores. Molly is all “oh mom, I eat raw hamburger” Amy actually prays for a change with Zach and Molly.
Matt pats himself on the back for loving and conceiving the whole idea! Also there technical problems and *someone* forgot the porta potties. Matt and Amy blame each other and Matt openly blames Amy for it. Caryn decides she doesn’t care who wins and tries to help.
More porta potty drama. People are arriving and they can’t possibly crap in the woods! Despite you know, how the Roloffs are farmers and crapping in nature is ok. I notice that the crowd here is fairly small and also I really don’t understand how this is making money. Audrey of course has adorned herself with warpaint. The crappers show up on time and now the race begins? Although I don’t really see how it was a competition or how teamwork was involved. The kids run the race in a stupid goofy way… looks like Audrey and Tory stepped up to be famous. If Isobel was on the team, she wasn’t mentioned by name, FYI.
Oh wow, ball lightning and thunder! Makes all those weather alerts make sense.
Now Amy and Lisa and her entourage are forced to run the course for no apparent reason other than that the crowd for this is pretty light. Amy is all about how this is a team thing. Amy notes how she loves her charity foundation. Matt notes how he was really the mastermind to the whole thing. In a surprisingly open moment, Amy admits it didn’t really make a lot of money. Jeremy is wearing his fem headband. Also it is super raining here! Next week apparently there’s a windmill tower. Let’s hope I am not flooded out.
