Duck Nation: Why We Love Duck Dynasty
By finding a family like the Robertsons and allowing them to have the courage of their various convictions (about hunting, God and beards), A&E has delivered a show that demosntrates less flashy lifestyles while still allowing people to have distinctive personalities. Duck Dynasty gives us something of themselves and expects nothing in return, which is something that most new broadcast-network comedies and dramas lack.
Like Donnie Wahlberg said recently about Blue Bloods, Duck Dynasty gives viewers an alternative to today’s version of entertainment. “Everybody’s so busy trying to create the most outlandish family on TV, they forgot about the traditional family.”
