Bates Dad v. Bates Kiddos

"The older crew, they're standing by, waiting for me to tell them what to do. The younger crew, I'm having to go find them because they're already doing something I didn't want them to do."
-Gil Bates

In this web exclusive from last night's episode (be sure to read our recap) Gil takes the kiddos to the new church building. His hope is to have them help him with a few things, but keeping them in line proves to be a difficult task (video below). Do you think they are goofing off more than they would with Kelly around?

  1. Oh yeah! They would not be doing that if Kelly was there. Poor Gil looks like he's trying to herd cats!

  2. I would guess that's because the older ones were actually raised by their parents. The younger ones are constantly left with the older ones and are not receiving the same training and correction the older ones did. I like the Bates, but it's clear to those who have watched them since they were on 19 K&C that their hone life has drastically changed since getting their own show.
