It's been a whole week since I got to spend quality time with Phil, Willie, Jase, Uncle Si, and the rest of the Robertson crew. Sure, I've had my reruns, but I so look forward to Wednesday nights now thanks to Duck Dynasty. Last night was no different. Whether the warehouse boys were convincing Si to pay out his last dollar over a gentlemen's bet or Jase wearing out his welcome at Willie's house, the episode went by too quickly. Sidebar, I love howJep is always referred to as "Willie's Other Brother."
Jase and Missy are renovating their kitchen, so Jase and the kids will be bunking with Willie and Korie. Thankfully, Missy is out of town, so she'll have to miss whatever debacle will surely ensue this weekend. Meanwhile, after a heated race between two toy woodpeckers, Godwin, Martin, Jep, and Si are betting on who can knock down red solo cup pyramids, and Si is doing his best to hustle the warehouse crew. Jep can't believe that Si and his father are related…after all, Phil was almost a quarterback in the NFL, and Si couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.
I think things are really going to be great this season of Duck Dynasty. It's fun, light-hearted and not too scripted! I love seeing the Robertsons get together, and I think it's hilarious the way Phil interacts with his grandchildren.
Jase is installing a new dock with his brothers and friends as Si gives orders from the edge of the water. Si is great at supervision, but he's reminded that he, of all people, does not have super vision. I think we can all attest to that having seen his coke bottle glasses.
At the warehouse, Si is regaling the warehouse crew with stories of his football days. Jasehas Si's football formula memorized. First, there is a grand exaggeration followed by Si's remarkable strategy. After awhile, the actual story of the game begins, but it's riddled with commercial breaks for Epsom salt, sweet tea, and more ridiculously exaggerated stories.
Last night's Duck Dynasty got back to the roots of why I love this show so much. It wasn't super scripted, but it was hilarious, wholesome, and fun to watch. The episode followed Willie, Jase, and Si as they gave Martin a good-natured ribbing over a member of the opposite sex, and Phil was able to spend some quality time (even if he didn't ask for it) with some of his adorable grandchildren.
The Robertson boys are fishing, but Si's singing seems to be scaring off all potential catches. As Phil so eloquently puts it, "If fish were vampires, Si would be garlic, daylight, and a stake through the heart simultaneously."
The men plan for a poker night, but Martin bows out quietly. He's got a date! I'm kind of excited to learn this news because it means that Martin is still on the market. Call me maybe! Willie jokes that he's known Martin for ten years and he's been on one date…if Willie is being generous. Jase inquires as to whether Martin found this girl in a mail-order bride catalog.
Last night was the season premiere of Duck Dynasty, and I must say, I have missed those Robertson boys and their families! While I'm all about a DD marathon, I love new Si one-liners peppered among Willie'santics and Jase and Phil'sdry humor. The episode didn't disappoint as the crew created a surprise wedding with nary a camo tablecloth. I'm shocked! Let's begin, shall we? CHAW!
Jep and Willie are playing Battleship as their wives watch with eyes rolling. Jessica and Korie share a scripted exchange about Phil and Kay's upcoming anniversary. As Willie jokes that the girls will never be able to convince his parents to have a party, Korie suggests planning a surprise vow renewal, and she credits Willie for the brilliant idea. She admits that the best way to get a Robertson man to do what you want is to make them think they came up with the plan in the first place…well, that and sexy time. A second wedding, it is!
Jase, Si, Godwin, and the boy are hanging out in the warehouse, and Missy is blowing up Jase's phone with ideas for the surprise wedding. The men wonder why they need a second walk down the aisle, and we learn that Phil and Kay never had a proper wedding the first time around. Godwin is excited about the idea as long as there is chicken dancing involved. Willie joins the crew in an effort to escape Korie's party to-do list, and Si can do nothing but Indiana Jones his nephew for being so whipped as Godwin yells CHAW in what has to be the worst whip sound ever. Willie denies being a pushover as he hands his credit card to Korie…
I cannot get enough of the Robertson family, and I was so sad to learn that next week is the season finale! So this season of Teen Mom is going to continue indefinitely (or until one of the girls finishes college…so forever), but we only get roughly six weeks of Si, Jase, Willie, and Phil? Something is not right in the world of reality television.
Last night's Duck Dynasty begins as Godwin and Jase arrive at the warehouse (fun fact…Godwin used to be a bull rider. I love him 8 seconds more than I did before!), and they are surprised to see a Harley parked in Willie's spot. Whoever would violate Willie's sacred space? Jase knows that there are two thinks you never mess with when it comes to Willie…his food and his coveted parking place. Jase enters his younger brother's office to find Willie strumming an electric guitar. When did Willie start playing? And why is his beard now five shades darker than his hair? It's almost black. Willie reveals that he's been messing around with the strings on and off…since yesterday. Mid-life crisis, anyone? Jase informs Willie that someone has parked in his spot, but Willie isn't concerned. The Harley is his. It goes perfectly with the new Warrant t-shirt he bought on eBay. Jase can't help but poke fun at his brother, sharing that Willie can barely ride a bicycle, much less a Hog.
As if y'all didn't already know it, Wednesday night is a beacon in my week thanks to the Robertson folks of Duck Dynasty. I can't wait to see what Si, Willie, Phil and Jase have in store with their silly antics and good, clean fun. Last night, of course, didn't disappoint.
We begin as the boys are making duck calls, when Si arrives with a taser. He's armed and dangerous, and Jase is very afraid. As he should be of course! Willie arrives to invite the crew to a human resources meeting. He's bringing in a professional to give a seminar because, as Willie states, "When your employees' standard response to problems is to shoot it, burn it, or blow it up, it pays to cover your butt." Words to live by, I say. Willie gets on Si for playing security guard with his taser and handcuffs. The security kit was purchased after the break-in, although Si reminds Willie that it was Jase who broke into the warehouse.
Last night's Duck Dynasty was rather risque for Robertson standards. There was bathroom humor, shrinkage concerns, and Miss Kay got super sassy talking about the birds and the bees. Willie fancied himself an action hero, while Jase took great pleasure in ribbing his brother. Si has never been colder than he was in 'Nam, and Phil just shook his head at the insanity of it all. Good times, for sure!
Willie and Jase are touring a giant Bass Pro Shop after being offered a large space to sell their Duck Commander products. While Willie is trying to work on a deal, Jase is hoping to score free stuff and tossing out horrible neon laden ideas. Is it just me, or is Jase a Si in training? The guys decide that a blown up photograph of the Robertson boys is just what the space needs.
At the warehouse, Martin and Godwin are playing Go Fish (don't they know that it's super hard to play that with just two people?) and Si is watching Jep play Donkey Kong on a Gameboy. Jase wonders why the boys are being so old school with their game choices, but Si reminds him that the simplest of games are the most fun…Kick the Can, horseshoes, lawn darts–if you are fortunate enough to actually survive a game of deadly lawn darts! Willie arrives and shares the news that the boys will be doing a photo shoot for their Bass Pro Shop space. After major eyerolling from Jase, Jep offers to take the pictures so he can 1) test out his new camera; and 2) avoid being memorialized forever in whatever craziness Willie has in mind. The photo session is set for Saturday–oh, wait…Jep isn't available on Saturday. He has his dodge ball league play-offs. Si likes the sound of that. He loves the idea of the duck, dive, and jive!
I guess we've been spoiled by Duck Dynasty and the Robertson family, and I'm certainly alright with that. However, imagine my sadness when I realized that last night we were just treated to one new episode instead of the two to which we've grown accustomed. Granted, it was hilarious, but I can always use a full hour of the Roberston boys. Phil, Si, Willie, and Jase bring a balance to my week, and I'm forever grateful to them for it!
I have to say that Missy stole my heart when she decided that "Jason" (who's that? haha!) needed a wedding band. We all know he'd never stray, she just wanted an outward symbol of their marital bond. Can you blame her? Of course not! And when hilarity ensues (like it always does with the boys from Duck Commander), you've gained my attention!
Missy takes Jase to Grassi's Fine Jewelry determined to put a ring on it. Beyonce wishes she were there too, without a doubt. Jase likens ring shopping to fishing when you don't have a good lure. He admits that he lost his initial wedding band over twenty years ago, but that's okay because when women see him, they run. Unfortunately, that statement isn't a compliment to sweet Missy. The pair look at bands, and Jase is hoping to find something that won't make him the laughing stock of the warehouse.
