Xfinity has this as E12. Last week was two separate episodes. 

I guess TV Guide doesn’t  know that. They don’t even have the show title written correctly.

What is it with these people and pranks? I find that sort of humor mean-spirited and juvenile. 

In the description the word revenge is used. I’m curious if they will say that on the show.

 

Do not take revenge.... or something like that!

TLC itself doesn't know what it's doing with the episode numbering. They are the bleeping worst. It is what it is and I can fix it later once the season is done and effing gorram TLC figures out what the hell they want to do.

I hate them.

I agree and I believe you answered your own question.

As for the tissue box, I'll swap it out for the adult beverage of my choice. It's the only way I can endure these episodes. ?

They are "always there for each other". What the everloving nonsense. Where else would they BE? Josiah is a leader? Leader of what?

My heart must be cold and dark but having to write 52 reasons I love ANYONE (including my maternal unit) would make me Roll my eyes. 52?!!!! How long does that take to write?! My hand would start to cramp.

I think Lauren needs glasses, the way she looks at Josiah, she always tilts her head back like she's an older person who has presbyopia. Or she is just affected.

Ok I vote affected.

Damn, lauren and Josiah barely tolerate each other. They aren't even married yet and lauren is already sneering at Josiah that his breath stinks. Good luck you two. Lol

Look at Jessa working hard to drum up ratings. Isn't it cute?

We already saw it Jessa and it was awkward and sad.

Jessa' s comments sound like they were written by a young teen.

Jessa Blessa must be sneak-watching "This Is Us", because that's how they market every episode. Verbatim.

James does not look like a Duggar I've ever seen before.  

That 'D' is fucking hideous. Cindy might be good at what she does (is she??) but her aesthetic is so so tacky.

Si's reaction to the first look was...underwhelming. Thankfully, he managed to get into character and squeeze out a few emotions by the end of the scene.

The over-18 Duggar boys desperately need to get laid. They need more excitement in their lives than trashing wedding getaway cars. 

Eta: Lauren's breathy "Dear Daddy" speech? Ewwwww. I almost vomited up my Greek salad (take that, Austin!) when Lauren proclaimed she'll always be his little girl. It's not even the sentiment that skeeves me out, it's the semi-pornographic delivery.

James looks like Famy and Deanna.

I have to wonder how awful the wedding nights are for these poor women who've been so sheltered, getting married to equally sheltered men. I sure hope they've all been making good use of the internet at the very least otherwise that's not gonna be much fun. At least not for her. (I can't be the only one thinking that)

 

Edited to add: Hot damn that moment when she ducked away from the second attempt at a kiss was awkward. Don't think she liked that first one much as she said.

In the wedding preparations scenes on the two different days, did anybody else think this one guy looked eerily like Josh? He had a black shirt one day and a red one another. He was wearing a hat both days. It freaked me out.

In case you missed it, Lauren's gluten-free. 

Jinger looked gorgeous in that brief glimpse we saw of her at the reception. 

Abbie's worked for several years? Wow, that's a first.

Jessa's pimping it like the rent is due tomorrow.

Out of all the Duggar couples, Si and Lauren are the least authentic. I've never once sensed they're madly in love. I don't even think I'd say they politely tolerate one another. What sort of feels is Jessa talking about?

I feel like Jessa is overcompensating for the lack of chemistry and at the same time giving Kendra a big F you. When Jessa was gushing about the wedding It suddenly struck me that she really doesn't like Kendra too much.

What made you think she doesn't like Kendra?  What did she say?

These kids always loosen up for the season finale like, "Yay!  It's over!". Where is that spirit the rest of the season?  Austin was like a whole different person!

think Jessa is big-time jealous that Kendra got the light, bright, beautifully appointed cabin while she's stuck in the dingy Mold House. Kendra also had a relatively comfortable hospital birth and waltzed out of there looking like she was ready to go to Homecoming. It seems like the first birth is the Super Bowl of Fundie deliveries and Jessa botched it like she played for the Falcons. 

Sooooo....I might not necessarily agree with this particular observation; I wholeheartedly endorse the humor....holy hell, that's hilarious!

Falcons? That was at least a Raiders level delivery. Jill? She's the Browns x2.

Raise your hand if you think it is creepy and, well, borderline perverted that everyone seems to watch the first kiss with eagle eyes, then rates it???

I don't have a DVR and can't rewatch, but I'm pretty sure the older lady behind Jim Bob kind of gave a side-eye-roll during THE KISS.

Poor Josiah, I don't think the hand practice (heh heh) helped much with the kiss.  On the other hand (heh heh), he's probably pretty experienced........

And did Siah and Lauren kneel in front of the Candle of Unity table and pray to the Big D?  what was that about?

I like Abbie!!  Pentacostal Perm and all.

Omg the making out. NIKENIKENIKE. Aaahhhh!! Believe me I am a prude by no means whatsoever but the constant stopping and kissing and that one kiss in particular, later on, skeeved me so badly. They've soooooo made out before. Come on. I think they're just so riled up they can't wait to get on with it already. 

Also, Joy and Austin at the reception couldn't be more distant. Le sigh.

Since Mr. Dragon is from Cleveland and I know how bad the Browns are - I'm still pretty sure you just insulted them - LOL

It hasn't aired here yet. Did anyone laugh AND cry? 

Didn't think so. ?

From the previews and the TLC go clips, I sort of wanted to accidentally spray those stick on notes that covered the car with charcoal fluid and throw a match at it.  Ahem.  Off to the prayer closet.

What is a Lions-level delivery? When you have a great doctor or midwife but waste his or her talents in favor of using Teresa "Baby Juices" Fetoskey? When you go 0 for 16 in home birthing?

I was skimming through the posts and only noticed the first part of your sentence and truly did a double-take!

First of all they could have made this 2 separate episodes.  One being the wedding & the other being the commercials, predominantly TLC advertising their shows. I taped & rewatched it (I missed some of it)  and it took about an hour with me fast forwarding thru the commercials.

Can someone tell these couples-to-be there is more to marriage/your wedding than the first kiss and being alone. For being so religious (or so they think) you would think they could come up with a more unique answer.

What is it with these (fundy) gals and their obsession with their fathers & vice versa.  Lauren's speech was bordering on the lines of a eulogy. 

I agree with others, what made Austin the voice of marriage reason?

I did like that JB & Mechelle didnt have a part in the ceremony. 

Few misc questions: who sang the Lords Prayer when they were doing the Unity candle?

Who was  in the bridal party? I'm mainly interested  which Duggars were included.

Was food served at the reception besides cake & cheeseballs?

I liked seeing how the cake lady made the heart shaped wedding cake out of circle and square sheet cakes. Brought back many nice memories for me.  My mom made many of these for me and my sister's birthdays growing up.  Very easy to do:  Place the square one to look sort of like a diamond with corners(points) at top and bottom.   Cut the circle cake in half & place each half along side the top sides of the square cake, creating the heart shape.

ETA  Josie's hair really looked cute.
