Little People slammed for 'desperate' & 'cringe' change to show after fans call for 'boring' series to be canceled | The SunJuly 8, 2022
LITTLE People, Big World, has been slammed by fans for the show's changes while many call for the series to be axed.
A scene from the latest episode of the long-running series sent social media users into a frenzy.
Zach Roloff was playing with his two oldest children, Jackson, five, and Lilah, two, at a park when he decided to call his mother, Amy.
He told the family matriarch that he would bring the kids to see her at her Oregon home.
The 32-year-old offered to bring food over as they planned to stop at a Sonic drive-in on the way.
Amy accepted the offer and requested for Zach to order her a bacon cheeseburger.

Zach proceeded to ask the kids what they'd like to eat while he placed the orders through the fast-food restaurant's mobile app.
The group then drove to Sonic, where a waitress delivered their meals on roller skates in the carhop.
They brought their meals to their grandmother's house, where they all ate together.
An online thread erupted with comments about the scene as many complained about the "blatant" Sonic endorsement.

The original poster wrote: "The blatant sponsorship for Sonic when Zack was on the phone with Amy in the latest episode was so hilarious. They really take what they can get!"
A second person added: "Shameless, gross, and desperate! Amy and Matt must be so proud!"
Another chimed in: "The blatant acting when things are sponsored will never not be funny ahahhha."
And a fourth fan said: "They can take all the sponsorships in the world. It’s the bad acting and making it seem like it was an authentic interaction that was cringe for me."
'THE END IS NEAR'
LPBW watchers have already voiced their opinions about the show's direction after 16 years on the air.
Last month, fans suspected the show's current 23rd season might be its last as social media users complained about the mundane storylines.
The latest episodes have primarily focused on the feud between patriarch Matt and his son and daughter-in-law, Zach and Tori, 31, after the 60-year-old turned down his son's offer to purchase the family farm.
They have also highlighted the family dynamic since Matt split with his ex-wife Amy, 57, who remarried to Chris Marek last year.
One social media user questioned the show's direction: "This season has been so different and not in a good way. As soon as Zach and Tori are back to being bff's with Matt and Caryn, we'll see them snub Amy and Chris just like old times.
"Everyone this season sucks except Chris and Jackson. The end is near for this show."
Another agreed, believing that the family drama has been "not interesting."
"Agree. Chris and Jackson are keeping this show on the air. I’m over the Z&T storylines. Their lives are not interesting. Their feud is stupid and self centered. Zach is so angry I feel he’s a danger to his dad honestly," they wrote.
A third echoed the statement: "The problem is they drag out stupid storylines bc nothing else is going on. We had 2 seasons of will Amy sell her share of the farm..and now it’s disgruntled Zach and Tori for being denied by Matt."
They continued: "The drama between Amy and Matt is a thing of the past, and they have them playing happy exes for a storyline, and it’s annoying to watch. We know they would never be doing this if money weren’t involved.
"The show is forced and redundant. I said it before, but I’d rather watch a show about Amy and Chris doing fun things."
A fourth person chimed in with their thoughts: "You know, we all keep saying the show surely MUST be almost done, but somehow, it keeps being renewed."

A fifth tweeted: "I'm sorry but not even sure why I watch this show. I shut it down last nite and won't watch again. These people are BORING af."
One fan had a change of tune in a tweet about a recent episode: "As staged as this dinner is, it was nice to see Amy genuinely laugh with Matt and Caryn."
