Not sure if there is a thread for this already, but are there any other fans of Jon & Kate plus 8?

AnyFuleKno Fri 15-Aug-08 16:48:53

I've not seen it but I find programs about large families fascinating. (Would have loved one myself). Is it an old program or repeated now or what?

AnyFuleKno Fri 15-Aug-08 16:51:02

bugger, that came out wrong, never mind.

I love that program, although it does make me wonder why I can barely cope with one.

*waves back*

How many episodes have you seen? I have seen about 6 eps on Discovery H&H, and i watched the very first one with the babies birth on YOutube.

Do you know where else i can watch it?

And those kids are just supercute!

I love Jon and Kate although have you noticed her body language?

When they sit on that sofa she behaves like she hates him.

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 16:53:17

Bronze - there are old & new eps, it started when the sextuplets were born, they are 4 yrs old now i think

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 16:54:54

The way she shouts at him too!

I have noticed that she is turned from him, but in the very first ep, they are actually very close & she actually seems to like him!

I love this show too. My 7 year old ds1 has become addicted to it with me.

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 16:59:55

Has anyone seen the ep where they go to Disney World? OMG @ Kate when she lets them eat (or not!) ice cream shock

It is fab, Aaden, Joel, Collin, Hannah, Alexis and Leah turned 4 on May 10th and Cara & Mady will be 8 on Oct 8th.

You can tell that Kate is the boss but it doesn't sit easily on her shoulders and Jon is a bit too laid back as the father to 8 kids.

MatNanPlus Fri 15-Aug-08 17:03:26

The ice cream had my creasing up, i was with Jon, strip them, let them eat then wash and dress them again.

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 17:24:15

she is far too nuerotic! I was gobsmacked that she wouldnt let them walk on the hotel floor - "eewwww, germs!" lol

MatNanPlus Fri 15-Aug-08 17:27:28

LOL, yes but then having got stuck to a motel floor myself I can see her ishoo

juneybean Fri 15-Aug-08 17:28:04

Yeahh I really hate the way she treats him but their children are gorgeous!!!

AnyFuleKno Fri 15-Aug-08 17:32:53

I think I've seem most of them, I sky plussed it when it was on home and health. I missed the earliest one though.

I really feel for both of them - she has to spend her days being bossy to keep control, it must be so hard for them. As for Jon he constantly has several children hanging off his legs desparate for his attention.

You really had to feel for him when he was cleaning out their minivan before they went to disney - potties and food slopped around in the back etc.

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 17:36:41

That was pretty grim! I like how she made him clean it up!

Ive missed quite a few, i see that there are over 40 episodes, ive only seen about 8! Im going to see if i can download them from somewhere

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 17:37:15

Kate got a free tummy tuck!

MarkStretch Fri 15-Aug-08 17:38:23

She does speak to him like he's 4 too though.

Did you see the episode where there were in the toy shop and she made him stand with the trolleys and then yelled at him across the shop?

I would be mortified if I was him. And he was.

missjennipenni Fri 15-Aug-08 17:39:31

Its the way she goes "Jon! HelllooOOOOOO!" in that annoying voice!

MatNanPlus Fri 15-Aug-08 17:41:32

They have a book called Multiple Blessings to be released November 1, 2008. Originally, the book was listed with Kate Gosselin and Beth Carson as co-authors, however the cover credits Jon as a co-author as well.

Also Seasons 1 and 2 of Jon and Kate Plus 8 is available on DVD, it was released in the US on July 16, 2008.
