Oh yeah. Have worked with many Sheldons, as well as much lower functioning spectrum kids.

A shame, Kayelle. BBT is my absolute favorite sitcom. Even beats out Seinfeld!

We watch reruns of it all the time, and can always find something we missed.

Us too Dawg! Sometimes I have to say to DH , "hey we just saw this one last week!" I draw the line there. I don't mind reruns, but enough is enough. There is no shortage of television available ;)

I loved it. It's almost the only thing I miss since I haven't had a television.

I'm sure it's entertaining.
Reality.
A family of nine on a journey to find a new homestead.
They were kicked off national park land and moved to central Alaska to set up a new homestead.
All 7 children have never had TV, phones or electricity in their lives. They are a bit different as you can expect.
Its a good show and just came on a few weeks ago.

I really like these shows about Alaska and its people and their jobs.
The only thing I don't like is the uppity attitude of many of these so called "sustenance" survivors.
Many think they are above the rest of the population because they must rely on the land for every need.
Thing is, no one made them do these things. They have picked this life for themselves.
They could easily assimilate into society, but choose this life. Free will if you will.
They have no business looking down their noses at the rest of us. But many do.

Since I'm not fond of 'reality' shows I've never watched this one. (I did get caught up in Deadliest Catch because a friend liked it. Even that one, I felt was scripted or edited fairly heavily.)

But Alaskan Bush People---- I just read this on the Web:

"[...] endearing in the strangest ways, like Bear, 25, who runs everywhere, digs holes with his hands and climbs trees all the time. Or Bam Bam, 28, who calmly tells his angry father that building their cabin on a foundation of stacked rocks is not a great idea. And Matt comes off as personable and normal, except that he's 30 and still lives in a room with his parents and six siblings."

Then:

"On Tuesday, the show took an unexpected turn. At the beginning of the episode, a title card appeared, stating: "The Discovery Channel was given permission to document the life of a secluded Bush family. During production, an incident occurred and filming was stopped." According to the episode, someone in the Copper River Valley did not like the Discovery Channel or the Browns being in town, and after multiple threats to both, they came onto the Browns' property and began shooting at them. There's camera footage of the supposed late-night altercation, but then the show picks up again months later after the family has sold their property and moved back to Ketchikan to live on a boat."

Did you see that?

I rather agree with you---- there's no need to have survivalists or sustenance adherents feel superior. Some of them might even be doing it to avoid the law.

I, too, like to hear about/read about Alaska. I almost moved there many decades ago.
