Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Gotta be fake

I don't understand, if the 1 guy is so against progress and new people coming to HIS town, why would he or any of the other detractors ever agree to doing a t.v show that highlights how beautiful and enticing there town is. Wouldn't someone so vehemently against new people moving there be adverse to this. I don't know, maybe he should just build a giant wall, seems like that's the American answer

Men that Isolate Their Families

I think this show dispects the worst side of homesteaders and people living off the grid. Most of the individuals on the show was just plain manical. The acting out in barking wildly at people that oppose their opinion, along with physical actions of strapping a gun on their chest and stealing heavy machinery for a joy ride is borderline lunacy. Horrible things happen when you have a group of individuals like them. Jeremy is some sort of self proclaimed ruler and his sidekick Jane need to be put in a facility and observed. Something else bad will be happening there. When people think they can force other people to do what they want-right or wrong-they are a hair away from dangerous. Men that isolate their families to the degree that Jeremy is trying to do are only trying to control them to the degree of instability.
