I have never watched any Jon & Kate episodes. I have seen bits and pieces but have never sat down and watched a full episode. So, last night I decided to rectify that situation. I don't know what the show was like before but last night was one big pile of boredom. It was two episodes. The first was filmed before they officially broke up and Kate made some remarks about Jon being an idiot when it came to home remodeling but there wasn't much other conflict. In the second episode, it was just Kate + 8 + some production assistants acting as parents. The kids wanted to go camping so Kate had to pitch a tent in the backyard. She couldn't and so the production assistants helped. The kids all kept saying dad was the best at camping and that Kate was not going to be able to do it.
I get the feeling that every week is just going to be akin to watching kids at a pre-school. Today we are going to do this and all the kids do it. There was no drama and no action and even great editing doesn't change the fact that the show is boring, boring, boring. I'm sure they had big numbers in the ratings last night but they are going to need to have Hailey show up with her guns and Michael Lohan to show up with Kate Major for this to have any kind of chance to be on the air past this season.
