The Family on Netflix
I kept waiting for proof of a conspiracy, but it turned into a hit piece and muh Russians.

Anyone else watch this turd?

Promo looked interesting but was hoping for the MTV board to tell me if it’s worth my time

I am at the Mark Sanford affair portion of it, and I've liked it so far.

Finished it tonight.

I’m not sure what the makers want you to believe so I ended up not believing it.

Did that make sense? No? Well that’s the entire series in a nutshell.

I watched the first episode and it didn't really pull me in.

Even if the testimony is accurate, it's just a typical protestant Christian group who has money and influence. You can find this with most megachurch pastors.

Hell, Trump stopped in to get a prayer from David Platt a few months ago.

Seems like the only weirdness they communicated through the first episode was that Douglas Coe had some strange comparisons to Hitler and other treacherous leaders when discussing devotion, focus, and power.

But again...I only watched one episode.

It really went off the rails. It seems completely different around episode 4. Definitely will get a thumbs down from me.

re: The Family on Netflix
I watched the first 4 episodes and then turned it off.

Was a weak conspiracy doc...just showing pics of JFK and Reagan and Bush and Clinton, and implying this Coe guy was some puppet master but never provided any evidence beyond Presidential prayer meetings...

And the meat of the entire sorry doc was that a few Senators shared a place to live and one guy cheated on another guy's wife.

And "the family" gave him a pass.

Show was stupid.

Kept waiting for some Star Chamber stuff and all it was about was a religious guy who hobknobs Washington like any other lobbyist.

It’s just boilerplate lobbyist shite. Almost like they thought it’d be some explosive thing after Butina but they never found anything.


I found the C-Street stuff interesting but other than that I was disappointed.

It was uninteresting blather that promised a conspiracy but delivered nothing remotely interesting during the first episode. It also felt extremely cheap, like I was watching a documentary on the ID Channel and smacked of inauthenticity.

It makes sense to me, I think I know exactly what you are saying.

They never presented a thesis. All I got was a religious group that is Machiavellian. I didn't think the idea of imperfect men doing God's perfect work was anything new.

I did learn some things about the National Prayer Breakfast week that I did not know but it was basically just trivia.

That secret conservative Christian groups are secretly controlling the government and America.

The filmmaker is a University of San Francisco film professor. The exact type of person to have an extreme bias
