And obviously, this here is the "What are we currently watching" portion of this blog post.
I wanted the best,
I GOT THE BEST!
Gene Simmons Family Jewels is about, well GENE SIMMONS!
The Rock God!
God Of Thunder!
All of that!
And his more than lovely family.
Which is viewable via the link below.
Despite being on Youtube. It's not really all that embeddable here on our site hence the boring ass text link.
But that could pretty much give you an idea as to how the show goes.
This was actually one of THE last TV series we've ever watched before we ended up cancelling our cable subscription. I guess we've seen two season's worth of episodes before the said cancellation.
Well basically, It's your typical reality TV show. But unlike the Kardashians, the Kate Plus 8s and what have yous. You'd actually care for Gene and his family. Because they really are THAT genuine and a good role models for parents. Gene & Shannon's parenting skills are a healthy mix of the traditional and the contemporary. In effect, both Sophie & Nick had grown up very close to their parents. And mind you, both had eventually became refined and socially active individuals on their own. No bratty or inappropriate behaviors whatsoever. Which is quite admirable, really!
Despite the hectic touring/guesting schedules,
Kayden Kross, y'know!
There you go, that's more like it!
It's the normal "daily life-doing chores" part that separates GSFJ from all other reality TV families. And Despite having the reputation of a womanizer, every scene with Gene and his mother Florence is truly inspiring and quite admirable.
Like for example, as early as the first episode of Season 3. We've learned about how much Snippy (the family dog) meant to Gene.
It's that healthy mix of the luxurious life and the more candid moments at home that makes the show amusing and quite endearing to watch.
And just in case you were wondering, Gene did pass the Lie Detector Test.
And you know who DIDN'T?
This was the last episode where I stopped.
Wherein Gene had to get ready for his big Las Vegas show.
But then again, you better shut up because he fuck'n owns Las Vegas!
Funniest moment from the said 2 part episode:
