A&E new reality series "Duck Dynasty"

Judging by the previews it's a "reality" version of the old Jed Clampet "Beverly Hillbillies" . It's about a Louisiana family that made millions from a duck call/duck decoy business and ....here's the kicker...they enter society and have beards and southern accents and wear tuxedos with snake skin boots. That's it, just another ho-hum class exploitation and ridicule of Southern culture show. Anybody believe that the good-ole (rich) boys play golf with a shotgun? You can't blame the Robertson family. They are no doubt in it for the money but give me a break it's a comedy show at the expense of the good people of Louisiana.

They get to laugh all the way to the bank.

And if you remember the original show, the butt of all the humor was Drysdale and the other grifters who tried to latch on. (And Jethro, who thought money = brains) Ellie, Granny and Jed may have been naive, but they were't stupid.

I remember the show. It was hysterically popular at the time. Hollywood tried to tell us that (the typical?) Kentucky family (in the 60's) was clinically retarded. In retrospect the Bev Hillbillies was as insulting to Southern rural culture as old blackface routines in movies seem to be to the modern Black community.

I don't know. I saw it as sort of an answer to The Adams Family. The grifters usually came out badly and the family maintained their dignity.

Integrity is what makes having sunday supper on the pool table dignified rather than mocking.

Looks more interesting than watching the Kardashians

What I wanna know is why PC doesn't apply to BS like this. It's offensive so why are Southerners fair game and why would someone find this entertaining? If it were Blacks,Latino's, Muslim ect people would be screaming bigotry, yet trash the South and for some half assed reason that is supposed to be OK. I won't be watching.

What are you talking about?

There have been plenty of "reality" shows about Blacks, Latinos, Muslims, etc.
