I admit that I adore the reality show "One big happy family" on TLC---a show about a morbidly obese family (almost everyone is over 300lbs) and their focus on living healthier.
I like the show because it is one of the more realistic reality shows out there---I actually know a lot of people who have the same concerns that the family members have.
But, there is also part of me that cringes when they say something that seems stereotypical on a lot of different levels---sigh. Like, the whole issue about not knowing wear spinach comes from and thinking it only comes from the can.
I also feel a bit awkward in that the wife and mom works a lot, but the father doesn't because of his weight and other issues. It seems odd at times and I don't like the image it portrays.
I do hope the family is successful in their second season. Is anyone else a fan of this show?
