Jon, Kate, and the Breakdown of the Evangelical Family

Date: 05/26/2009

My young daughter is a dedicated fan of the TLC program Jon and Kate Plus Eight , a reality show of a wholesome family with a set of twins and a set of sextuplets.   Over the weekend, TLC ran a marathon of four seasons of the show leading up to the beginning of its fifth season on Monday night.   I confess--I spent a good number of hours watching the reruns with her.   Rather unbeli ...

Jon & Kate Plus Sustainabilit-eight

Date: 04/20/2009

Just last week I was bemoaning the fact that shows featuring abnormally large families, at least by today's standards, such as "18 Kids and Counting" and "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" are sending irresponsible signals in an era striving for sustainability. I hoped that Discovery Communications, owner of both TLC and Planet Green , would formulate some kind of crossover event between the channels ...

The Duggars and Environmental Sustainability

Date: 04/14/2009

It's no surprise that Josh Duggar, the oldest child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar's 18 children, and his new wife Anna have taken up the family tradition of being in the family way (the couple announced Anna's pregnancy yesterday) with much enthusiasm. But, what I do find surprising is the transformation of TLC from The Learning Channel into TFC, The Large Family Channel. Home to the Dug ...

Will There Be a Season 5 of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8'?

Date: 03/24/2009

Last night's finale of the hit TLC reality show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" was pretty much a snore--aside from the last few minutes. Commercial teasers for the finale made it seem like we'd eventually witness a blowout between the Gosselin couple culminating in a possible marital separation or at the very least, some kind of admission of marital problems. But that never came. Instead we see Kate take ...

Eight, er, Fourteen is Enough: Octomom Be Gone

Date: 03/06/2009

Whenever I hear mom of fourteen Nadya Suleman referred to as "Octomom," I immediately conjure up an image of Dr. Octopus from Spider-Man 2, but, instead of Alfred Molina inhabiting the wildly gesticulating, mechanical, tentacled apparatus, Ms. Suleman herself is there with one of her eight newborns clutched in each steely claw. This woman, at first a curiosity, has taken a cephalopod-like hold ...
