My coworkers have been talking about this show called Duck Dynasty since I started working here. I thought it was some country family in town they all knew and praised, turns out it was a country family they praised, they just live in Louisiana. My coworkers, for the most part, are the Fox News types so I dismissed it on the premise that I wouldn’t enjoy watching white privilege adorn my television screen in a country fashion. One of my coworkers told me I should really check it out because it really was a great show and of course I humbly declined because she just so happened to be the coworker that must have her “Fox Fix” every morning or evening or she’ll be “uninformed”. I don’t speak politics, religion, or food with people who aren’t welcoming to a different perspective and it’s been working for me so far, but she reeled me in. I’m a sucker for a good story. Give me a plot, a premise, dynamic characters and I’m hooked. That’s what she did. That evening I decided to check it out. The show is what I think reality TV should be. It’s hilarious and wholesome and incorporates family, shenanigans, and values which everyone can relate to in some degree. I watched 5 episodes that night and 4 more the next night. The show sparked some hope in humanity for me because I LOATHE reality TV. It’s trash and is nothing more than modern day soap operas. This show is based on family, love, and ingenuity. All of which is missing from a lot of mainstream television. The season premiere was last night. Check it out; it comes on AME Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.
