Guilty Pleasure


Does anyone else watch this show? I have this feeling that I probably shouldn't. And I know it sometimes makes me mad, when they get the facts wrong or when they portray the Mormon neighbors as prudes, judgemental, overly spiritual, etc. But I just can't help it--I totally love the show! Am I the only one? Is there someone out there who can back me up on this? And more importantly, is there someone out there who will discuss the show in detail with me, so I have someone to scream "OH MY GOSH did you see last night's episode?" to?

Sorry we don't watch that evil smut (Hey, look at me, I'm a judgemental Mormon!)

Just kidding. We've never had HBO.

I've watched about 2 episodes. Only once did I see in the credit's that the Mormons protrayed are not LDS-Mormons.

The show was good. It had some things that made me mad though too. Usually when they imply things about the "mainstream" church and thiers being one and the same.

I did watch a bit of the first season, when we were somehow getting HBO on our bedroom TV. But, my husband would get so mad, so I didn't watch it often.

I'm so not in the cool club, haven't watched it and really, not too interested. I can barely keep up with my regular shows as it is!

We have HBO, but I've never watched it. I suppose I could add it to my DVR list and see if its any good.

I love this show! They do get it wrong sometimes, but I think they're much more accurate than other media portrayals I've seen.

I watched it a few times, but know we don't have HBO. It's kind of like a car wreck, you know you shouldn't stare but just can't help it.

As Mormons, don't we live this every day? Why do we need a show about it?
