TV: Jon & Kate Plus 8

We started to watch this show on a recommendation from our friend Jamey, and we were quite glad we did. It is an interesting study into mankind and motherhood. It makes us wonder about what kind of mothers we could have been had our parents not removed our girl parts when before the tender age of one.

Basically, a couple couldn't have kids, so they used fertility drugs to have twins, and then tried again and had sextuplets. The eight children are under ten and the show follows their crazy lives. The mother is an uptight control freak, which turns out to be a bad combination when you have eight children. There is a lot of yelling and general freaking out.

Quick vote: This show is crazy. Watch it once, that's all you need.

One of my biggest guilty pleasures. I don't know what it is about watching two helpless parents struggling to deal with the stress of having 2 six-year-olds and 6 3-year-olds, but if I'm watching TV and this happens to be on, I more often than not end up watching it.
