Great for everyone, children can learn about things that parents will not discuss and by the way kids are baby goats

love it, love it, wish it was on longer and really hope it's renewed for another season. Do not think that Josh & Brent being a same sex couple have a negitive impact, to us it's just what a couple go thru and different stages of their relationship. We know several same sex couples that are going thru the same things we are and we live in a rural area. Main thing we love is the farm and how much they care for their animals and how they become part of the family

Great Show

Very good environmental messages and teaches basic farming techniques and self reliance.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series takes a humorous look at the way the couple adjusts to giving up their trendy Manhattan lifestyle in exchange for a life in the country. But the series' primary focus is on the men's Odd Couple-like relationship, which is being tested by both the financial pressures associated with building a new business and the distance that Ridge's job puts between them.

The show -- which supports organic foods, local growers, and the gay community -- is both fun and fairly mild for reality TV (though there is some social drinking and bleeped language). Viewers might just get a kick out of watching these two city guys with yin and yang personalities trying to keep their farm (and their relationship) afloat.

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.
