It's a new concept in reality television. It runs counter to the existing "big family" shows that currently dominate the basic cable landscape. You know, stuff like Jon & Kate + 8, 18 Kids and Counting [that can't be good for the vag, yo], The Octomom, Table for Twelve, and many more personal favourites.
Essentially what this show does is follow and document the lives of a typical nuclear family containing a Papa Bear, a Mama Bear, and a Baby Bear. Yes, I know -- atypical families are so hot right now. But tomorrow is not right now, and tomorrow the taste for uberfamilies could very well turn sour, particularly in light of henbludgeoned Jon playing the field behind Kate's back.
So join us for such exciting fare like:
Diane wondering why Richard has to fart so loudly.
Richard explaining to Diane, "Hey, I'm a dude."
Diane replying that the "dude defense" is not an actual excuse.
Richard countering that farting real loud is one of his few talents and it would be a sin to deprive the world of said talent.
Diane explaining that her water just broke.
Richard freaking out and shouting, "I should have read the baby books!"
And that's just in episode one! I can barely contain my excitement.
