TV Show Reviews
Knows Best" review by Suzanne
Season 2 Premieres Tuesday,
October 14 at 10/9c on USA Network
Fair warning: I don't watch reality shows, and I hate
most of them. However, I do like to give them a fair shot
when the network goes to the trouble to send them to me to
review. One of the things I don't like about them is that
they're not "reality". The people on these shows are
all lying and/or following some kind of outline (if not an
actual script). Nothing is as it seems, except for the bad
acting and the lust for fame.
I suspect that this one is a guilty pleasure for many
people. Todd Chrisley is the patriarch of a rich family in
suburban Atlanta. He's a total control freak who has to
dictate everything that his wife and children do and wear.
They all say outrageous things and are rude to each other
(even the young kids), which I gather is common in these
shows. Because it's set in the South, all of the girls have
big hair, using lots of hair spray. I used to live near
there, and trust me, very few people actually look like
this. Also, it's a very white show for one that takes place
in the South. Atlanta and that area are very
Africa-American. In fact, Atlanta is a large
cosmopolitan city and has people of all different types and
colors. It's a great city. Please don't judge it by
this terrible show!
In real life, no one would or could act like Todd and get
away with it. His family would have killed him by now. Also,
the whole family is just pure trash. I want to see them all
tortured and killed, honestly (and I don't like violence or
torture at all, but I might make an exception in their
cases). This is how you know it's not real because these
people are just mugging for the camera and putting on a
show. None of it is real.
If you enjoy watching outrageous people doing and saying
outrageous things (even if it's obvious that it's not true),
then you might enjoy how ridiculous these people are.
They're all rude, shallow and spoiled. I think we're
supposed to think that they're like the people on "Dynasty".
Even at its 9th season worst, Dynasty was never this bad. I
guess you're supposed to think it's funny, but to me, people
acting awful and abusive to each other is not funny (also,
there aren't jokes to speak of).
Chrisley Knows Best returns with two back-to-back
episodes on Tuesday, October 14 at 10/9pm on USA. The
real-life family comedy follows the entertaining lives of
Atlanta-based, outspoken and very protective, but very
loving husband and father, Todd Chrisley, and his colorful
clan, including his lovely wife, Julie, and their charming
yet scheming expansive brood. Season Two promises even
more comedic moments and not-to-be-missed extreme parenting
lessons. Viewers will join the Chrisleys for many milestones
and family adventures, including: their move into a
brand-new home, teenage daughter Savannah's first date
without her watchful dad (or so she thinks!), Chase's
much-anticipated 18th birthday, and a memorable Father's
Day, which does not exactly go Todd's way.
"Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter" - Season Two
premiere episode 201. When Julie announces she's going
back to work, Todd must transform into "Mr. Mom" and take
over some of the household duties. 16-year-old Savannah
feels like she is ready and old enough to start dating; she
pleads her case to go out with a 19-year-old heartthrob
"Misadventures in Babysitting" -Episode 202.
Todd and Julie head out of town and leave their teenage
children, Chase and Savannah, at home to watch 8-year-old
Grayson overnight for the first time. They hope their
teens can be trusted to follow their rules, but Chase and
Savannah have plans of their own, with their little
partner-in-crime Grayson along for the ride.
