I love this show and this family.

Not saying that they are those kind of people but really anyone can do what they do on the show.

This only made me feel disgusted as it showcases the worst in the human race.

This family is happy and supportive of one another. Its obvious they deeply care for each other and are looking out for their best interests. No, they aren't living in LA arguing over which fall fashion line to buy and that is no reason to tear them to shreds. They have limited means but they make the most of it and know how to have fun. Its a different subculture than what you are used to seeing on tv but get over it. Highly entertaining, and Im constantly laughing. Makes for good tv.

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I ended up laughing at this stereotype of uneducated unwholesome family life in the fry-daddy rural south. I felt more ashamed of myself with each episode I watched. But it sure was funny and if the series was mean spirited in concept the Honey Boo Boo clan diffused it and disarmed it with their willingness to laugh at themselves. They embrace their lifestyle. They love each other. In the end I had to wonder who's zoomin' who. In a clear and mean attempt to poke fun, it was clearly the Boo Boo family who was laughing last and loudest.

I love this show and this family. I know that people criticize June for some of her parenting techniques, but the result is a family that loves each other very deeply. Alana missed a pageant because of the birth of her niece and was OK because she knew family came first. How many other children would take not getting what they wanted so matter-of-factually and without complaint? Not many. I could picture myself hanging out with these folks and having a lot of laughs. I look forward to watching season 2 and seeing what the Thompson Gals come up with next. Poor, Sugar Bear....;-D

My guess is TLC thought they hit the Redneck jackpot with this family and planned to exploit them for fun and profit. They've got extreme couponing, the Redneck games, the teenage, unmarried pregnancy, obesity, toddler pageants, roadkill bbq, and a couple other negative American stereotypes thrown in for fun. They're probably kicking themselves that they couldn't manage hoarding. (I mean TLC is more carnival side-show than learning channel anymore). I think it backfired on them when the family didn't turn out to be a bunch of fist fighting, bitter and angry Rednecks on food stamps who were paranoid over the government. Instead they got a family that loved and supported each other.

While I think the entire pageant system is a huge scam and detrimental to the self-esteem of young girls (and boys), Alana seems to think they're fun. Her family has a much healthier attitude towards her participation than most pageant parents as in, it's great if she wins but they don't punish her if she loses. I do think they'd be better served if they directed her energy elsewhere.

I'm just glad they got rid of Glitzy the pig. THAT was annoying.

What IQ or education is needed to be given that Holy Grail of human relationships-unconditional love. Where do you need to live.
Honey Boo Boo (Alana) is lucky. She has 2 parents she is close to. She has a family who all seem to get along. She has relatives and friends who know how to have simple fun. She has personality and her own style. She may never win ultimate supreme-but she is the one with her own TV show-neat! She is experiencing success in so many ways. I envy her. I can't wait for Season One to come out on DVD, along with accompanying paraphernalia. SO THERE!

Just happened to catch an episode on TV a couple of weeks ago. I had never heard of it before so my fiance decided to watch it. TLC must be running out of good show ideas because this one really hits rock bottom. A few people I know brought up the show in a conversation and were discussing how terrible it was too. It's kind of alarming that anyone would be into watching something like this. LoL, one of my friends had said he could sum up the show in a sentence.... "Rednecks with big dreams and little potential." Not saying that they are those kind of people but really anyone can do what they do on the show.
