Editorial Reviews

The Duggar family may well be the best-known large family in history. Famous the world around for having 17 children all from one intrepid mother, this brood draws attention and questions wherever they go. And with mom Michelle and father Jim Bob barely in their forties, there's a good chance the family will grow even larger before their baby birthing days are done!
With 10 boys and 7 girls ranging in ages from less than a year up to age 20, there's never a shortage of interesting events around this place. In fact, even the simplest things are complex when your family's this big - laundry, dinners, home schooling, any trip out in public... it all takes brilliant organization and every individual pitching in for the good of the whole.

The Bates family of Knoxville, Tennessee come to visit with their 16 children. Jim Bob said, "They're almost a carbon copy of our family!" Both families go paint balling, roller coaster riding, hit a Branson dinner show and then the oldest ones skydive. And that's not even the most exciting event of the year. Oldest son Josh is engaged! Soon this family will be planning a wedding. And who knows, maybe mom and her new daughter-in-law will share a room on the maternity ward someday.

Duggars' big family album

The Duggars are wonderful. This is a great video that teaches the values America needs badly. Thank you Duggar family for bringing goodness to American television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Family to Learn From May 25, 2010
By Mwaa
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As of writing this, I have bought another DVD for my extended family overseas.

I have the DVDs '17 and Counting' and '18 and Counting,' also their book.

I have spent money on nonsensical trinkets, clothing, books and more. Why not learn from one of America's inspiring families?

I'm not so surprised with huge family members. Asia and some poor regions of the world have more than 12 babies at times. The great about this family is how they have solid foundation in the Lord Jesus (Christian values) and rules not to go beyond their means.

Like most people, I have reservations about having a big family. But since they live in America, why not? Look at China, some European nations, Japan and Korea with declining population rate or disparity in gender, the consequences are alarming.

If they can skimp on non-essential expenses and maintain their debt-free status, I think this is something to behold. I admire it so much because we live in a domino-effect greed. Wall street greed to global greed to the point we live beyond our means.

The Duggars help me realize that my days can be useful with sheer family fun instead of stuffing my closet with junk. I hope to be more frugal.

As a Christian woman, their lives help me meditate...meditate...and more meditation with lots of prayers for answer on how to walk the talk of a Christ-centered life. Living in NY, Im drawn to me, mine, and myself.

I hope to impart their lives to my daughter when she grows up.

VERDICT : Great buy! A realy family-oriented DVD. No demeaning language, mom-dad fights etc...

1.0 out of 5 stars Where are the 4 Bonus Features? February 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazon advertised this item as a "2pc" set. They titled the item "17 Kids and Counting (2pc)" and they showed the picture of the dvd case sleeve that clearly stated that this item "Includes 4 Bonus Features." When I received this item, there was only one disc in the case, and there were NO bonus features on the disc at all. There were 10 regular episodes, but there were NO bonus features....even though the dvd case sleeve clearly stated on both sides that the item "Includes 4 Bonus Features" and even names the four titles of the bonus features on the back of the case. Very disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the show, misleading DVD February 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've never missed an episode of the Duggar family, and when I found out that this dvd set was coming to Amazon, I jumped all over it. I had it preordered the minute I found out. When I received the dvd, I got excited to watch all the old specials, and so it was immediately popped into my dvd player. However, I realized after starting the dvd set, that the 4 bonus features were on another dvd. The explanation on both sides of the case said it has 4 bonus features, but that isn't the case. Can anyone fix this?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Love the Duggars, NOT the product received! April 22, 2013
By Linsey
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Amazon really needs to get their stories straight about this DVD, when I ordered the DVD it showed the bonus material, what I received was a DVD without the bonus features. When I went back into the product there had been a note added saying the bonus material was not included. This note was NOT there when I ordered because I read the entire product from top to bottom and all the reviews, simply because I wanted to make sure I was ordering the correct one and because the reviews of the product are about 50/50 with people receiving what they thought they ordered. I believe this is false advertising!! Here is a thought Amazon, change the picture if you are not going to send the product that we ordered! I will update further if Amazon corrects THEIR mistake. But the Duggars are an amazing family and an inspiration to everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Show November 26, 2011
By Jules
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just can't believe how well organized this family is! Such great values! The only reason I give it 4 stars is due to... I order the DVD with the bonus scenes and did not receive it, I received a regular DVD. Oh Well! Other than that, they will always be a 5 star rating in my books!

5.0 out of 5 stars I just love the Duggars. June 27, 2012
By Holly
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We DVR 19 Kids and Counting and wanted to see the 1st season. They are such a good example of a good family to look up too. I have gotten a lot of parenting wisdom from watching Jim-Bob and Michelle. My husband and our 8 month old like the show. Every time our son hears Michelle naming the names at the beginning of each episode, he will turn to the tv and start watching. I was happy to find it for a good price and free shipping. They also changed the cover so that it doesn't say it has the bonus msterial, because it doesn't.
