Favorite Episodes: Jon and Kate Plus Eight

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

Okay, so if you read my Friday posts, you know that I haven't seen the very final episode of Jon & Kate Plus Eight ("It's a Crazy Life, But it's Our Life"). But, I've been trying to catch it for MONTHS now, to no avail. And they never put it on DVD. So, I'm just going to go ahead and assume that it wouldn't have been my favorite episode in the final season (technically cheating, I know). But, since the new show (I'm tempted to call it a spin-off, although it seems there's a lot of controversy over whether it's a new show at all since there was one cast change and the title of the show changed), Kate Plus Eight just premiered (read about my thoughts on the first two episodes this coming Friday), I wanted to go ahead and do my favorites for this show.

It's really hard to break down TLC shows into seasons, so I'm just going off of how they broke it down online. Honestly, I don't know how they got 5 seasons out of just 3.5 years, but whatever.

Season 1: Shopping For Ten (S01E06) Both grocery and Christmas shopping trips are covered in this episode. We get to see the first of many coupon-oriented shopping trips for Kate (and this seems to be a favorite feature for TLC, as they love to show various series taking trips to the market, LoL), and the now-infamous Toys R Us meltdown for Kate.

Season 2: Hit the Road (S02E11) The Gosselins drive to Florida to see the beach and DisneyWorld. They have a grand time, and it's fun to see how excited the kids all are.

Season 3: Gosselin Family Christmas (S03E09) The kids learn Christmas carols, the family bakes, and we watch all the kids get excited about Christmas presents. :)

Season 4: Korean Dinner (S04E05) All the kids get to eat Jon's cuisine for once. He spends the entire day whipping up a traditional (and delicious-looking!) meal.

Season 5: Turning 5 & the Future! (S05E01) In a "beginning of the end" episode for the show, this one is heavy on showing how the paparazzi have affected the family. The sextuplets' fifth birthday is the main event, and it's really awesome. Those kids have such neat birthdays!
