Firstly Jill has really not dealt with the whole Josh situation and I don't blame her given the 'counselling' she received

Secondly -what happened to Derrick's face?

Where Did you watch it?

Groovee Mon 11-Apr-16 22:21:40

I believe Derrick had jaw surgery. My daughter needs the same surgery.

Emochild Mon 11-Apr-16 22:23:27

It's being shown on TLC

started at 9 but I was watching the island 😁

I'm recording it overnight - can't decide whether or not I'm hoping to like it.

Groovee Mon 11-Apr-16 22:25:50

Thanks have set to record.

I've just watched it - bit of an odd episode. It was a real mix of happy and sad, especially John David and Jana.

Derek looks quite ill, he looks alot better now. I'm quite interested to see how Jessas birth was handled as I know it didn't go to plan.

Don't remember if Jessa has her baby in the first episode or not? Her face when announcing the baby's name....... Poor little baby!!

Ive just watched the 5th episode. Ben becomes a rapper. I kid you not.

AttitcusFinchIsMyFather Thu 14-Apr-16 20:48:13

Wait, are you guys watching the specials or the actualy TV show? They are both called Jill & Jessa Counting On. In teh soecials, Jessa gives birth to Spurgeon. In the series, its just like their old show minus the parents. I don't know which one is being shown here?

iamdivergent Thu 14-Apr-16 21:45:42

It's an hour episode - Jessa still pregnant at end of episode 1.

Just watching now, goodness they all look wrecked especially Derrick and Jill looks very fragile.

AttitcusFinchIsMyFather Sun 17-Apr-16 17:59:17

Ah, those were the "specials", they then went on to make a whole serires of them. Quite dull but at least Michelle & Jim Bob are not in it.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 17-Apr-16 18:30:02

Ben seems to be channelling Jim Bob's hair now hmm

hesterton Sun 17-Apr-16 18:31:27

Spurgeon?? hmm

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 17-Apr-16 18:35:24

Awful, isn't it?!

iamdivergent Mon 18-Apr-16 19:32:30

On again tonight.

ChalkHearts Mon 18-Apr-16 19:34:20

Spurgeon!!!!!!!!

iamdivergent Mon 18-Apr-16 21:08:34

I know! Would not have been on my choice of names! He is very cute though.

Has Anne's face always been like that? She looks/seems very different

Emochild Tue 19-Apr-16 18:51:53

Just catching up with last night

Anna looks haunted but I think she's lost a lot of weight very quickly

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 19-Apr-16 18:57:05

Jill and Derek look ill, not surprised they've left to get away from it all!

Poor Annasad did she say that he went to her parents before they married and reassured them he was on the straight and narrow or did I get that wrong?

Emochild Tue 19-Apr-16 19:48:44

Yes she did

It's been widely reported that her family knew about Josh's past but it was treated as a teenage mistake that he had worked hard on fixing

How you can fix that is beyond me

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 19-Apr-16 20:14:07

Oh Godsad

Found you! I've just watched the second episode. I'm being good and watching them as I record them.
I was thinking Jill seemed way too upset about a brother who cheated on his wife. I think if my brother cheated on his wife, I'd be pissed off for my sis-in-law and think my brother was an idiot, but we would not all be grieving as a family. It's probably brought up old stuff for Jill.
Feel so sorry for Anna, married for like 6 years? Living with your husband independantly running your house, then back living with your inlaws and in the girls/kids bedroom with your 4 kids. I hope she's not making a huge effort with weight loss/makeup becuase of her idiot mothers in laws words about always having sex with your husband even if you don't feel like it, and making it look like you are enjoying it so they don't stray, no wonder they are all kinds of messed up of the husbands think its normal to have sex with your wife when she doesn't want too.
And jill seems so fake in everything, I wonder if she wants to be in Guatemala or not, and why do they always refer to it as "Central America" but when they visit people in Asia, they say they're from "north west Arkansas" not America, as if everyone knows America, and these people look at them like, huh?
