THE PLOT THUS FAR
There are goings-on with everyone, from the guys re-branding Duck Commander to the governor of Louisiana giving Willie an award to the return of the dreaded beavers! Watch as the elder Robertsons share their special brand of wisdom with the kids along the way: Phil teaches Bella more than Willie was hoping about nature, Willie and Si insist on helping John Luke with his speech introducing the governor and Jep and Jessica chaperone Lily’s first date. Jase takes Reed frog-hunting the night before his high school graduation—like he did before his own—and Jep and the ladies pull a senior prank by toilet-papering Missy and Jase’s house. Willie also sponsors a radio contest and finds himself competing against Si for a wood chipper. Somehow, it all comes together.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Duck Dynasty” is all about watching backwoods people having fun in the land of “Southern Comfort”. I’m talking about “Southern Comfort” the movie and now the tasty beverage that makes these reviews possible. Dates get chaperoned, people go frog gigging and everyone pulls together for the business. Uncle Si tries to get a wood chipper and everyone has a big staged good time. Laughs are had, but I’m not really sure what else we’re supposed to get out of this show.
The Robertson Family is a safe source entertainment for people that find any progressive views to be threatening. Duck get shot, money is made and the country boys keep having fun. I appreciate the time we get to spend with Uncle Si. Sometimes, I like to imagine that the show is a narrative about Si still being in Vietnam and imagining the show. But, my ending gets a little too “An Occurrence on Owl Creek Bridge”.
The Blu-Ray comes with featurettes as the special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong for the release. The 1080p transfer is on par with the last couple of releases. The same goes for the DTS-HD 2.0 master audio track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
