Finally forced myself to watch a whole 30 minute episode of TLC’s reality (definitely a misnomer because there is no way all of those humans live under the same roof with no friction whatsoever) show, “19 Kids and Counting”.
As expected, my glucose level began to rise, and after 11 minutes I began to drift off and imagine TLC’s biggest hit ever – “The Duggar’s 15 Years Later”.
As we envisage the show Josie, the littlest Duggar (that is unless Jim Bob and Michelle refuse to stop the madness), will be the rebellious teen crawling out the back window. The college kids will be posting drunken pictures of themselves on Facebook, the graduates will be searching for employment, and at least one of the children will be in rehab.
Of course, there will be more marriages, a few divorces and remarriages with accompanying step siblings, a “lifestyle” change, and LOTS more grandkids. Series highlights will include arguments over which grandchildren are the “favorites”, who was forced to do the most housework or babysitting when they were growing up, and who had the most on-air time.
You are welcome TLC! The Buffer Zone will be happy to act as series consultant and we will even throw in an autographed copy of our book, THE BUFFER ZONE.
