    Even though most parts are very stupid, ignorant, and disgusting, it contributes to the humor. But I think the disgust almost towers over the humor. I think it might be child exploitation....but in a humorous way.

    Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Child is one miserable half-hour. [27 Aug 2012, p.44]

    As with many of these series, Honey Boo Boo wobbles along that strange line of being at once an exploitative mess, and not just an exploitative mess.

    While I was creeped out by the way Honey Boo Boo was framing the family and presenting them to us, I couldn't help loving the Thompsons themselves.
