Synopsis: See what happens when Willie hosts his own radio show, but makes the mistake of bringing Uncle Si on the air with him. Watch how Willie's unexpected employee retreat fails to build trust among the Duck Commander team. Catch Jase's plans to prevent Missy from finding out he's lost his second, newly replaced wedding ring. But the Robertsons never back down from a challenge, always taking on new adventures. Whether it's a family cooking, fishing or football competition, a blind leap into wine making or their run-ins with critters of all kinds - this clan makes the most of their funny business.
Over 30 minutes of never-before-seen material including a revealing conversation with the Robertson family.
I'm not enamored with this show like some friends and family are, but it's fine occasionally. I think the old uncle gave a shoutout to Blu-ray in one episode, so maybe some rednecks do have Blu-ray players.
Sorry, but one has to wonder how many of the haters here really don't like it because the cast so openly expresses their faith, in spite of the network threatening them to get them to quit, as the network sees anything that alienates the non-Christian market as potentially costing them money, so they want to appeal to people of other faiths as well as those who can't handle the idea of God at all - whether it's because the enemy has blinded them or because of the recent "scientific" discovery about atheists not being able to access a part of their brain that believers use regularly.
As for offering more objective criticism, I agree, the show can be fun to watch, especially with family or friends who really get into it, but for the kind of repeat viewing that I think of as the primary appeal for owning a series on discs? There are many, much more rewatchable, shows out there that better deserve the attention on BD, and I'd expect would sell better. But, then, these have been available on dvd for a while, so I assume the studio knows better than me what kind of sells projection to expect. Maybe there's a larger HD market that doesn't pay for satellite, cable, or the internet out there than we'd assume. I already mentioned this to several people who only have internet access at work or taking their computer to the local library, and they are already ready to buy, even despite watching the show regularly via satellite or cable, so I may be wrong on both accounts.
I might even pick it up myself, if it drops as low as some other Lionsgate tv series have. But, not sure I'd keep it. I only watch the show on occasion. As funny as it can be, I'm amazed that these guys can own, operate, maintain such a successful business with some of the crazily stupid things they do with their wealth.
The only way you don't like this show is you've never seen it. Period. You can tell that that's the case with the comments here - likening it to just another reality TV show, comparing it to Honey Boo Boo. No one who has ever seen the show would make such claims.
So reality TV is finally breaking into blu-ray eh? How about focusing on actual scripted shows? Why are so few getting released? Where are the blu-rays for Revenge? Veronica Mars? One Tree Hill? Grey's Anatomy? Gossip Girl? Buffy? And so on and so forth....
