Backyard Oil - Mixed feelings, but will watch every week

Reader Critique: Wonders if national viewers will take the show all in the good fun it is, or if they will take it seriously and make fun of and belittle Adair Countians for the good country folks that we are

By Marianne Brown

I watched two 30 minute shows last night on Discovery Channel and I am left with mixed feelings. I am thrilled that the people struck oil on their land but some of the stuff showing people as silly and maybe uncouth bothers me and maybe it should not.

In one way, will people make fun of the Adair County folks for their too redneck actions? Or will they take it all it stride and laugh and not give it a second thought. Example like when Kristy - I think was the lady's name - was fixing her hair that kinda looked out of place.

The rooster hunting oil and the price they paid for the rooster - It was a funny show; I will watch it weekly or till it stops running, but I just hope the TV viewers will not make fun or belittle Adair Countians for being the good country folks that we are here in Kentucky.

Just my opinion, but I wish them all the oil, luck in the world. --Marianne Brown
