Anyone watch tonight's episode? What did you think of the other polyg family?
They reminded me of The Borg from Star Trek, compared to them the Brown women seem totally liberated!

I thought the way the teenage boys talked about their dad was sort of concerning. If I were the Browns, I don't think I'd be so quick to want to marry my kids into that family.

I agree. Seems like dad is the dictator and the wives are second class citizens. I also didn't like how they kept trying to convince the Browns that their way is right. They MUST share a kitchen. They definitely had the " holier than thou" kind of preaching thing.

I didn't get what the big deal was with the kitchen, were they saying it was a family togetherness thing or something? And what about every other room in the house?

After that episode I actually appreciated Kody a tiny bit more, at least he doesn't appear to force his wives to act like a mindless collective, it looks like they do attempt to make decisions jointly. That other dude assigned seats, even for the wives !!

As much as I find having sister wives, as they are called a little strange, I find having, a real life blood sister being a sister wife even more disturbing. That other family REALLY creeped me out.

remember that one of the other families sons said he wasnt going to have multiple wives ...he said it wasnt going to be his thing..
And the other family are all controlling...
I dont like kody or his way of thinking ...but he almost seemed normal last night...but not enough for me to think he is Gods Gift to women....

I'm thought that Joe guy was beyond controlling.

Why does Meri want a wet bar so bad she doesn't even drink

I was impressed that Janelle was trying to save money by getting less rooms.

I also like Janelle didn't want a mission statement. Does any family have a mission statement???

I wish Janelle would say enough for me.

Yeah I totally don't get Meri and her excessive demands for a house. I'm sure we all would like big homes with extra rooms and a wet bar (which at my house would be treated with the respect it deserves not used for juice and tea!) but you have to get what you can afford. She's just a big illogical emotional mess, I get tired of her crying every episode.

Janelle seems so level headed, how does she stand this drama?

I also found it disturbing how Joe was physically hanging all over multiple women at the same time. Honestly me and DH aren't even that physical in public! I was grossed out, what a jerk! You know he's a tool when he makes Kody Brown seem like a better choice!

This! In my mind that's crossing a line that is best not crossed.

The Brown wives were trying to convey that they were not defined who they were by each having their own kitchen. Meri brought up the subject of decorating each of their homes or their own kitchen. I think Meri was trying to say, that they are each individuals, with different taste's and the Browns were trying to say, "it shouldn't matter, it is just a kitchen."

I could not imagine my sister being my sister-wife and our kids being half-siblings and cousins at the same time.

Youj are right...when Kody seems to be the better choice that says a LOT.

Yes, I agree about Mary. Her crying is getting old. It seems her daughter has the same set of emotions.. Janelle does seem very level headed and a couple of her kids that they show a lot seem to also be that way.

I liked the scene at the beach where Jenelle was standing next to him while he was getting all PDA. She'd look at them out of the corner of her eye, then look away, then glance back, see that they were still at it, and look away again. She was so obviously uncomfortable.
