Just getting bored 😴

My husband I Think this show has gone way too far..Think Danielle is All about herself/selfish and her business..Not about the kids anymore, all about her feelings and her new business...Not much of a family show anymore...I feel sorry for her husband...We would rather watch the Derricos!🙃

I loved watching Outdaughtered when the girls were infants, babies then toddlers. The 2023 season feels SO scripted!! After seeing what has happened to almost all families…Jon & Kate +8, the Duggars, ect.. WHY are you trying to push your family on TV so bad!! I tried to watch the episode, but the whole "our oven broke & we have to make Thanksgiving dinner" was completely scripted and nauseating to watch!!! Sorry, not sorry, can't stomach much more!!! 👎

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21 ):
Kids say (10 ):

The reality doc offers a rather mundane look at the everyday challenges that come with raising multiples. What sets it apart from other multiple birth-themed shows such as Kate Plus 8 is the fact that these quintuples, who were conceived with the help of fertility treatments, are the first all-female set born in the U.S., as well as the first set of surviving quintuplets in the United States since 1969.

The quints are certainly novel, and there are a few lighthearted moments here and there. Grandma Mimi occasionally makes things interesting, especially when she makes the more challenging baby-rearing moments about her. But most of the series is spent creating voyeuristic entertainment out of the otherwise tedious routines required for keeping a household full of small children of the same age running as smoothly as it can.
