The show is pretty big time...they will end up paying.

200k for all them right, not each....

The friends cast was getting 50k an episode...each

That was me. And its so, so, not funny.

Paying unfunny, untalented people a lot of money to entertain dullards is nothing new.

I happened across this while channel surfing a few weeks ago - much the way I discovered Honey Boo Boo.

I watched about 15 minutes of DD - expecting there to be something about duck hunting on it. Not a chance - nothing but absurdity writ large.

It is not even as good as HBB.

at all this shite.

I never said YOU were a dullard. However, the vast majority of people I encounter who enjoy DD are.

Was my 15 minutes atypical? What is the theme? I am only interested if there is something about duck hunting on it.

What I say was the 'owner/foreman' of the shop telling them they had to get organized and not sit around so much. So they built an 'assembly line' (for folding cardboard boxes I think) and were riding on the belt when I finally abandoned it.

Did I miss the best part? Why did they need three men to fold cardboard boxes in the first place??

Are you calling me a dullard?

HBB was funny for one year because it was a train wreck. Trains getting wrecked every year become unfunny.

Well, hell, the vast majority of people who EXIST are dullards. That's like saying water is wet.

You shouldn't expect an efficient/good allocation of resources when the government steps in and subsidizes an activity/industry.

Or at least that's what my Econ professors claimed.

No. Every episode is nonsense just like that. For example, an "unforeseen occurrence" means the boys have to take over a restaurant for a night, and "hilarity" ensues...

Maybe it depends on where you hang out. I'm not much of a fan but know quite a few people who used to be into it. They are far from "dullards."

My dislike for the show has less to do with it being low brow than it being too staged and repetitive.

No. That is how it goes. You aren't watching a psychological thriller. Its just entertainment. I am in no way offended if people don't enjoy it. I find it interesting some people do seem offended if someone does enjoy it. (not you CB...just in general).

I don't see why anyone would be offended that someone enjoys it, but I am rather perplexed about what is enjoyable about it.

Perhaps I just wasn't into it - I admit I wanted to see something about duck hunting.

And to be fair, I cannot stomach ANY of the 'reality' shows. I tried watching a couple of episodes of the first one when the fad first started - was it "survivor?" - and just could not find anything other than contrived idiocy.

I spend my time on the History Channel, Science Channel, NatGeo, etc. when I am not watching football or the news.

The show is really not about actual hunting, but more about friends and family and cutting up. It is staged but still funny...

This thread needs to get moved to the OB. 20 pages about how funny it is and don't even mention the crazy uncle.
