Family Bonds? Family Bore

There is a new show on HBO called family bonds, that follows the family of bail bondsmen as they go about their day. The father owns the business and employs his brother, sister and their spouses. There is a fat cousin involved as well. The show had a great writeup in the paper this weekend so I was looking forward to seeing it. I was very disappointed and can only hope it gets better. As pops was off trying to find some Romanian, his wife was teaching the youngest kid to ride a bike- something pops tried to do but didn't have the patience for. He ended calling the kid a weenie when he was whining about not being able to do it. The little punk didn't try. They kept telling him to peddle and he didn't want to. This kid must be stupid as a rock to not understand such a simple concept. Once mom got him to ride a bit (he went the distance of about 3 houses before he stopped) he got off the bike and they walked back to the house. WTF? When a kid learns to ride a bike, they usually end up riding all the time. Who didn't as a kid? I bet we don't see the brat on his bike again.
But the whole bondsmen story just sucked. They hauled one guy in. That was it. Boring. It has got to get better.

So you felt it was necessary to post this one twice? I understand double talk, but this is taking it to a whole new level.
