During these boring TV days of Independence Day I scoured the channels looking for something to watch. I’ve heard of Honey Boo Boo before but have never seen it. All I knew about the show I learned from South Park.
“Here comes Honey Boo Boo” is a show on The Learning Channel that follows the daily life of a fat, redneck family. There’s really no educational value at all yet the show is strangely compelling. Little Alana is cute and smart and following the family’s redneckery is interesting. I find myself jealous that they have such a large and loving family.
This show makes me smile. For me, smiles are hard to come by. That alone makes it worthwhile.
