  1. S03.E05: Toby

    Well, we finally know where Randall and his family live. Alpine, NJ is in Bergen County, close to New York City. I remember in season one where we were all trying to figure out where William lived and now that we know it's Philadelphia, no wonder it took 2 hours on the bus back and forth to their house. I liked seeing Toby's backstory and hope he stays on his medication and continues his therapy. I was a little surprised to find out Kate did get pregnant. I have to admit, I like seeing the kids as teens even though every story line has some sadness to it. They do seem believeable by those actors as teens and it's kind of fascinating.
  2. Interesting that Josiah says it's a great movie to watch no matter what side of the aisle you're on. Does this mean he accepts people who have pro-choice views? If so, it's the first time I remember a Duggar ever doing so. I'm from South Jersey, lived my entire life 18 miles from Philadelphia and I never heard anything about this doctor or this case. I'm pro-choice but the details sound gruesome and I have no desire to see this movie.
  3. I'm not sure if I missed something, but don't Danielle and Adam also have part ownership in the cycle studio? So if Adam was downsized or quit or whatever, he can't work there instead? The individual outings were cute. Danielle made too big a deal of Adam not being able to be there, imo. By the way, they did the same thing on the Jon and Kate plus 8 show 10-12 years ago, so it's not anything new. It was probably suggested as a storyline by the producers. The Gosselins also went to Hawaii as a family, Jon Gosselin quit his job and then they ended up getting divorced in about season 4 of the show. Really hoping that doesn't happen to the Buzbys.
  4. I'm thinking that this show should really wrap up and go off the air in another year. The girls are 3 now and by the time they get to kindergarten, unless the Busbys plan to homeschool, they are going to get comments/remarks by their classmates. I have to wonder if this is already happening with Blayke. I think the other show, Quints by Surprise wasn't renewed after the second season when they were about 2 1/2. Fame caused a lot of problems for the Gosselin family and most likely the parent's divorce. I'd hate to see it happen to this family.
  5. I remember thinking that of all the Duggar kids, it would be Jill who would be the most likely to adopt a child. She really cared about the orphans when they were on their mission trips and I recall one teen girl asked Jill to take her home with her and Jill was in tears because she couldn't. I still wonder if that's a possibility, international adoption. That said, I'm also wondering if she'll soon be pregnant again. Jill may not be in favor of it but I really doubt Derrick is completely against birth control.
  6. S09.E02: Mo White for President

    This is Emmy Rossum's final season on the show. I'm not sure I'll be able to watch a season 10 without her. I too like the new Liam, he can really act and has some of the best lines lately. I can't get used to Lip's new buzz cut and I'm trying to figure out why he is so invested in the daughter of a woman who was just a hookup for him. I guess the actress who played her mom isn't back this season but we have the daughter and Lip acting as her foster dad.
  7. Way too much talk about potty training. Those poor girls are going to hate their parents when they get older and watch reruns of the show. I don't watch all the higher multiple shows, but the only other one I remember that focused this much on potty training was the Gosselin family, which even showed the poor kids sitting on potties. I'm with the poster above who said that it can be done in a week or so, just be prepared to stay home and do the reward with the M&Ms or whatever. One of my kids insisted on using the potty with the door closed, he wanted privacy. Both of mine were over 3 and I think the quints are getting close to that age in the show. The quints were also too young to understand the Space museum. it should have been something that Adam just did with Blayke.
  8. I think of all the Duggar daughters, Jinger and Jeremy will have the least number of kids. I guess we'll see but I have a feeling it's going to be no more than 4, In reference to an earlier comment, breast feeding won't prevent breast cancer. I nursed both of mine exclusively for 18 months and 10 months, and developed it at age 53, before I went into menopause. I had surgery and radiation and hopefully am okay now as long as I stay on my hormone blocker prescribed by my oncologist, but there is no guarantee it won't be back someday.
  9. Have we heard any more talk about Jessa and Ben adopting more kids? I was watching a rerun of the early season of Counting On, and it was interesting to hear that both Jill and Jessa were talking about adopting kids, even with both were pregnant. It's now been about 3-4 years and I haven't heard any more about it unless I missed something.
  10. I do have to wonder what is going to happen to some of the Duggar offspring after the show is off the air and Jim Bob is no longer around. They've certainly made a lot of money, but I don't think it will be enough to support the ever growing families as time goes on. It appears that Jim Bob is still supporting Jill and Derrick, even though they are off the show. He's supporting all of his married sons and their families since all of them work for him. I'm thinking maybe Joy is being supported mostly by Austin, but I'll bet they still collect from the Duggar family pot for appearing on the show. Jinger most likely bought their house through money she earned from the show, not on Jeremy's minister salary, which probably couldn't support a nice house like that anyway. Jim Bob seems to be in quite a hurry to now get all of his kids that are legal adults married and starting families in order to keep the show going, but it won't last forever.
  11. The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I was watching a little of the old episodes of Counting On the other night (too many summer reruns), and I think during the second episode, Jeremy was shown with Ben and Derrick in a grocery store when the guys were buying items to make "baby food" for Jessa and Ben's baby shower. The fact that he was introduced as their friend Jeremy makes me wonder how long he and Jinger knew each other before they started their relationship. It also makes me wonder why Jim Bob seemed a little less enthusiastic about Jeremy compared to Derrick. It had to be Jessa and Ben who introduced Jinger to Jeremy. And I'm wondering if they were already involved when that baby shower was filmed, otherwise, why come all the way from Texas just for that?
  12. Maybe I missed something, but I was just wondering if it was mentioned where Josiah and Lauren are living. Also, is she 18 or 19 ? I can't quite figure out how long he's known her. It seems like all of them are marrying children of the parent's long term friends that they know either from their church or homeschool group.
  13. Okay, I'm confused about Joe and Kendra's house. They got married in September, right? The latest show talks about them fixing up their house. So where were they living after the wedding? Or were they on their honeymoon for a month afterwards? Somehow, I don't think that Joe did all that work himself, even with his brothers helping. Most likely Jim Bob hired some contractors to assist in the remodel.
  14. I have a question about Riley. I missed an episode but I think I remember, wasn't she the first one to climb out of the crib, as well as the first one to be able to tell her teacher something that started with a certain letter? The teacher told Adam and Danielle that she and Parker were ready to move up to the next class. Maybe Riley is taking on a leadership role, so to speak, and is coming across as more "in charge" as she is somewhat more advanced than her sisters. Just my obsservation.
  15. Many of the outfits the quints wear are from Matilda Jane. Joanne Gaines continued the clothing line after the original designer passed away. You can only buy the clothes online from what's called a Trunk Keeper, not available in stores or on Amazon. The clothing line is from Texas. Of all the girl's names, the only one familiar to me is Hazel. My dad's older sister, who passed away 5 years ago at the age of 87. Lovely lady. It seems that some of the more old fashioned names are coming around in popularity again. I have a niece named Emily who's 33 and at the time her name seemed old fashioned. Then I just read that the name Linda is getting popular for babies. I don't know of anyone named Linda, Carol (my name), Diane, Donna, who isn't at least 50 years ago. I'm 55 and another very popular name growing up in my age group was Michele as well as Maria, and Mary. I've never known anyone personally with any of the girl's names. Danielle was very popular about 30-40 years ago .
