Return of the Gosselins!

post #1 of 369
Thread Starter 
OK, mamas, we're going to try this one last time. Here's the poop:
This is the television forum. The purpose of the television forum is to discuss Jon and Kate Plus Eight, the television show.

All posts must both adhere to the forum's purpose (see above) and the User Agreement, specifically
Quote:
Do not post in a disrespectful, defamatory, adversarial, baiting, harassing, offensive, insultingly sarcastic or otherwise improper manner, toward a member or other individual, including casting of suspicion upon a person, invasion of privacy, humiliation, demeaning criticism, name-calling, personal attack, or in any way which violates the law.
Defamatory = purposely harmful and/or untrue with the intention to malign. MDC no longer hosting celebrity gossip, which should cover most of it, but we will also not host speculation of a harmful nature, including allegations of abuse or armchair mental health diagnoses. This is also covered under "casting suspicion".

Baiting = trying to make end runs around the User Agreement and hinting that members posting to this thread on either "side" are somehow morally deficient. It will not be tolerated, and is not the purpose of this forum. Discuss the show, not the members who discuss the show.

Offensive/disrespectful: You can discuss your thoughts on their religious beliefs as they pertain to the show. But please, mind your language. We don't host any form of religious bigotry on MDC. Don't use words that would offend you if someone turned them around and used them to describe your own beliefs.

Invasion of Privacy = tell-all blogs, aerial shots of private properties, etc.

Personal attack and namecalling: To clarify, you may state how you feel or how something makes you feel. You may feel certain actions are selfish, careless, or mean. You may not call someone selfish, careless, or mean.

This isn't the place to debate religion, family planning/fertility, discipline techniques, etc. If you want to have an extended conversation on those topics, please start a thread in the proper forum.

This thread will be opened tonight and will be actively moderated. The plan is to start a new thread each month. Posts that violate these guidelines will be removed and alerted. Jon and Kate Gosselin are certainly not core to MDC's purpose, and if these guidelines can't be adhered to, the thread will be removed.

As always, feel free to PM me with any questions or concerns.

Signed,
Modzilla

Glad it's back. I expect to see a lot of "I feel..." comments. I don't want this thing to get closed again.

My fridge is quite clean now too.

O.K. speaking of refrigerators...did anyone else notice the brand new one in J&K's new house?

And all of the mold?

I watched the Moving Day episode on my DVR last night. Does anyone know where they moved to? For some reason I thought they were buying something out of state but it seems they are moving relatively close. I don't need a town name but rather just how far from their old house are they moving?

Also, anyone watch the Q&A episode? I feel like J&K glazed over quite a few major questions. I also felt the crew's responses were very rehearsed. Thoughts?

Count me in as another one who got their fridge cleaned!
post #11 of 369
I only caught the very end of tonight's episode. I did not see the new fridge. But, the other one was nasty moldy, and if I could remotely afford a new one, I probably would have bought one too!

They did not move out of state. I think it is about an hour away, closer to their hometown, and I think very much closer to their church and the kids' preschool.

Edited to say that I am glad to see the thread back, and that I wish someone would have sent me the memo about cleaning my fridge! Here, all your fridges are cleaned and mine isn't. It just doesn't feel right.

I haven't seen tonights episode yet either, but I just have to agree...if the old fridge had all that old mold in it, then yeah, I would have bought a new one as well.
post #13 of 369
I didn't get my fridge cleaned either LOL>

And about the moldy fridge, yeah I would have rather bought a new one than spent 4 hours cleaning that one LOL

For those who didn't get their fridges cleaned. That's your homework for next week.

For the rest of us, if my fridge were that moldy I probably would have just bought a new one too.

Is it a new fridge or did they just take the panels off? I compared the two eppys and the top is the same, plus it looked like stainless under the panels.

I really dont see them buying a new one. I would have though!

Count me as someone else who did work on their fridge

I find this interesting. How come? Kate is a self-admitted "germophobe".
post #17 of 369
Yea! I hardly ever watch the show, but I really enjoy reading this thread. Glad it's back. :

Maybe they didn't have a coupon for a new fridge. They only buy things if they have a coupon you know.

I actually have to agree with Kate on the tractor issue. I don't think kids should ride on lawn mowers or tractors. It just scares me. Plus, when Jon was driving the tractor, that means that 5 four-year-olds were out running around (unless there was a secret nanny that day). It just does not sound like a good combo. I would just worry about that.

I had the same thought-although I grew up riding on them. I also got a few bad injuries from slipping and falling off!
