The Kids Are Not Alright



This episode was heavy. Up till now, the kids have been pretty much relegated to the background as Gene and Shannon try to work on their relationship. At the urging of Gene, he ask his therapist to talk to the kids so they can voice their opinions on the situation at hand. Nick was the first to open up and get a lot off his chest. And what he had to say was pretty profound and shed a light on the turmoil that he is struggling with. Sophie on the other hand was more guarded and really didn't feel like opening up to a complete stranger. She, along with the rest of the family, had voiced that doing so on camera wasn't right. "It's a family thing that should be dealt with in private and not in front of TV camera's for the sake of entertaining people."

I don't know if Gene is ever going to "get it". He continually does and says things that are contradictory to what it is he is trying to achieve. At one point, he invites his therapist to watch the show (KISS Concert). I found this extremely inappropriate in blurring the lines of professionalism and entertainment. She knew this was wrong and immediately called him out on it. In the end, she agreed to watch "some of it". I think she did this just to placate him and move on.

But the coup de grāce of the episode was when Sophie, in group therapy FINALLY opens up and reads Gene the Riot Act. She has come a long ways and it was exhilerating to see how much she has grown. She tore into him and he had nowhere to go. He had to sit there, listen and take it all in. When this was going down, Shannon had a "holy f*ck" look on here face, which is exactly the same look on my face when watching it. Gene...classic Deer-In-Headlights reaction to what he had to hear from Sophie.

I think the debate of whether this "story arc" is fake or not has to come to an end now. It's real in my book.

Belize It Or Not



HA. I KNEW IT!!!! Going all the way back to Episode 1, I had my suspicions, which I allude to in the spoiler below in Episode 3.

Spoiler (hover to show)

This was a great episode, even though most of it did seem staged, at least the ending seemed genuine. That's the good news. The bad news is I get the feeling that Hulu will not be hosting any future episodes, leaving me totally in the dark. This is a cliffhanger I don't want left hanging. Bah!!!!

The second half of Season 6 returns tonight. We were left with the biggest cliffhanger of Gene's life as he finally pops the question and asked Shannon to marry him. Not sure if Hulu will even host the episodes at all, let alone a week later. They didn't put the first half of Season 6 on Hulu until a good month and a half after the mid-season finale.

Added Episode 10: The Answer

The biggest shock for me yesterday morning was waking up and seeing that A&E had allowed Hulu to host this episode. Never has that happened before with their shows. A changing of the guard perhaps?







Naw. I doubt it.

The Answer



Her answer of course was yes. Now, the rest of the season will probably center around the whole wedding plans and all that stuff that comes with it. I'm sure most of the drama will stem from Gene wavering and looking for a way out of the engagement and they will probably have a huge fight or something just before they are scheduled to get hitched and then at the 11th hour everything will be fixed and they walk down the aisle. Should be a fun 2nd half of the season.

Tracy The Wedding Planner



Meh. It was just ok. Not a lot happened other than what you would expect from the title of the episode. It's the typical chaos of lining up everything for the impending wedding.

Till Death Do Us Part



Gene passes out, hits face on the concrete floor, rips open his eyebrow and then becomes obsess with dying. So, the entire episode was about this obsession and making arrangements for the future to protect his family financially with a will and all sorts of paperwork. Shannon does her best to make Gene eat healthy by going organic. Doesn't help.

Wedding Boot Camp



Wow. That was riveting viewing. I'm not an expert on Marriage counciling and my only experience with it has been on a show here and and a show there. And usually those show were never in depth at all. They would just gloss over it and make it out to jokey, or a "fun" couple of exercises that never showed any consequences between the couple. But Wedding Boot Camp definitely was eye opening. Not just for me as a viewer, but for Gene and Shannon and every other couple in attendance. Imagine being put in a room with complete strangers and being told every sh*tty thing about your past and thrown right back in your face and all you can do is accept it and acknowledge that the things you did in the past were wrong and harmful. That's some sobering sh*t that will snap you back into reality.

Shannon said it best, "Gene his entire life has dealt only with 'Yes Men" and now he has to stand in the middle of a room full of people that hate him and call him out on his sh*t". I can respect anyone that can own up to their sh*t and get through an exercise like that. That takes some serious courage right there. Another exercise that was particularly brutal was the "I would never be your spouse because....." and the one dude (not Gene) stepped up to Shannon and finished that statement with, ".....because your a doormat". Ouch.
