    It seems everywhere I go, or whatever station I listen to on the radio, I hear about the Duck Dynasty...even on ESPN.

    I don't have cable or Dish, but I can stream Amazon Prime through the kids Wii system.

    I was thinking about checking out the first season, but I'm not sure if I want to waste my time getting sucked into a "reality TV" show. Is that was it is?

    I didnt know the Nintendo Wii was also a steamer. Have you tried steamed clams with it yet?

    Talk of that "show" should not be allowed in the forum period. Those assholes have bred a new breed of duck hunter that a) does not understand decoys/calling b) sky blasts at singles 70 yards away c) no respect when ducks are working your own decoys/calls

    Good show. I enjoy watching it with the kids via Netflix. Started watching about a month or 2 ago. Reality-ish. Good clean family fun that often involves redneck entertainment like explosions, shooting things, and the like. The promotors are riding it hard, and that kinda sucks, but what do you expect when they find a show that is a big hit with such a large group of people? Marketing maddness.

    I enjoy it, but agree it is like every other "redneck reality" show. It breeds a new generation of idiots who do not understand the concepts of the sport. Same goes with four wheeling, fishing, hunting, etc.

    It's not the Robertson's fault that most of our nation can't discern parody and humor from reality. They have a deep respect for the sport. Since the show rarely shows any hunting where did you get this idea?

    These reality shows drive me nuts. I don't waste my time with them. I like watching the Military channel. Lots of history there. Or maybe the History channel. I gave up on the Sasquatch hunters. You would think by now they would of seen one. Three years now and no ape to be had.

    I'm sure that there are people on this forum that have fished for ten years and have yet to hook a steelhead

    I agree with you, I think it is just stupid.

    No need to insult the noble sasquatch.

    My grandkids, who live out in the sticks, love the show. I've only seen bits of it, because (like Old Man) I don't care to watch reality shows.

    But I can see where they would find watching the Military or History channel boring...grainy black and white films of a time that is, to their young minds, as distant as Roman Legions occupying the Black Forest of Germany.

    I do, however, admire who ever is managing their effective marketing program; they know there's a short 'shelf-life' to this stuff, and are making hay while the sun shines.
