This will make my wife happy happy happy. Hopefully happy enough to overcome the cancelling of Smash.

YO Jack! Watched the season premiere with my wife last night. Why do they have scripted reality shows? They used to just be called sitcoms. Anyway, still funny regardless. This is one of those guilty pleasures where I feel dirty having enjoyed watching it.

And the fourth season premiere just shattered cable TV ratings history as the most-watched non-fiction series telecast in cable TV history.

It isn't exactly scripted. More like setup or recreated situations.

For example, in this last show, they probably recreated the original events due to the absence of a camera when it happened. Probably with some embellishments. Someone decided it would make a good episode, they called in the film crew and away they went. Everything after that was probably just filmed as it happened naturally.

At some point, we'll probably find out that "Uncle Si" is really a Shakespearean actor with a British accent who had never met any of these people prior to the show.

The slow guy, Mountain Man, is making an arbor out of next to nothing at a snail's pace. The camera goes back to him and magically a beautiful arbor is completely finished. Come on...

Yeah, I don't care. That guys voice cracks me up every time. He appeared at a minor league ball park over the summer and the cable company hyped it up as "Come meet the star of A&E channels Duck Dynasty... Mountain Man"

Speaking of the show being scripted, one of the funniest things I've seen on the show was the episode where they were doing the Bass Pro photo shoot and Jep said he couldn't go because his dodgeball team was in the playoffs. The guys did the Jim Mora playoff rant ("Playoffs?! Don't talk about playoffs! You kidding me?! Playoffs?!") verbatim, each of them having a line. It was just a throwaway that only a football fan would notice, but they way the executed it was perfect - and it was obviously scripted and rehearsed.

Not sure if this has already been posted, but I thought it was pretty funny. Jase was mistaken for a homeless vagrant and kicked out of Trump Int'l Hotel. Seems like he took it all in stride.

It's a pity so many celebs lack this class.

I've immersed myself in this show -- watching about 30 episodes over the past two weeks -- and best as I can figure, Duck Commander is a real company, and the Robertsons are a real family, but beyond that everything's plotted and scripted like a traditional sitcom.

Didn't Gene Simmons pioneer this format?

I wouldn't know -- I've never watched any of the reality shows starring celebrity families. Come to think of it, Duck Dynasty is the first reality show where I've actually watched more than one episode!

Another observation: I don't think I've ever eaten ANYTHING that Miss Kay cooks on that show. Yes, I'm a yuppie from the subdivision.

I haven't either...but, then again, I don't live in West Monroe, Louisiana...so it'd be kinda difficult. And I'm proud to say I am nowhere even close to being a yuppie...

What I meant to say is, I've never had boudin or frogs' legs or crappie or catfish or dove. I didn't mean that I've never had the distinction of eating at Miss Kay's table.

Another thing: I thought Martin and Godwin were first names, but according to Wikipedia, they're surnames?

Oh, you just don't know what you are missing! Especially the crappie and the boudin. You didn't mention crawfish, but you are missing out on those too. When the crappie spawn in the spring, daddy used to go out and catch them by the loads. SERIOUSLY good fish! Light, mild and flaky. We mostly ate them fried, but they were good broiled as well.

I haven't eaten dove since I was a kid, but daddy and mama both were dove (and quail) hunters back in the day. Frog legs are okay...they really do taste like chicken.

Dove is pigeon, your hunting grounds are legion.

Um, no, Mayor "Mr. Nanny" Bloomberg of NYC frowns upon people shooting pigeons in his fair city.

I've had all the above, except boudin, as I'm still not entirely sure what it is.
It looks like sausage, but I'm guessing it's made from meat not normally found in sausage, so maybe I have had it just didn't know to call it boudin.
ETA: according to the google, boudin is exactly that, sausage made from "exotic" meats, and sounds delicious.

I've always though of frog legs as being on par with escargot, fancy rich people eat them, didn't think of it as a redneck dish, I tried both on cruises.

In my youth I had an uncle that took me dove hunting, rabbit hunting, squirrel hunting and fishing for both crappie and catfish.
We didn't think of ourselves as rednecks, just poor enough to eat what we shot or caught.

I've never had squirrel, either, although I've had rabbit along with quail, partridge, grouse, venison, and elk at one very memorable dinner back in the 1980s.

I've known several people-quite a few actually, with Martin as the last name.

Ack, once again I must clarify. What I meant to say is, why does the show refer (in the on-screen IDs) to Martin and Godwin by their last names? Everybody else is identified by their first name.
