1867

For those familiar with Colonial and Frontier House, PBS is showing a new 'house' tonight. It is called Texas Ranch House. There will be 8 shows in total.

I hope they do a better job with this event. I was less than impressed with Colonial House for several reasons. Frontier House missed the mark in a few areas too.

I couldn't believe, in Frontier House, how they weren't allowed to hunt.

Without hunting the whole system fell apart. It was so bogus.

Hope they do better this time.

I watch all of these too. What irks me is the language they sometimes use and some of the things they talk about.

I recently let my son watch Frontier House (I had seen it when it first aired and had it taped), but I had to fast forward through some things I thought were not appropriate. I hope to let him watch Texas Ranch House, but after viewing last night's episode realized I will have to pass by some more stuff.

A couple of things that bug me about all of these shows: People who complain about conditions, as if they had no clue what they were volunteering to do (maybe they didn't). And they try to be historically accurate, but still take 21st century notions into it, expecting them to hold up.

Oh, well. Can't have everything.
