Decorate Like a Bates

Decorating for Christmas at the Bates house

"When we're doing anything in our family, there are quite a few opinions. Like, everybody has three or four of their own."

It's time to deck the Bates halls! As the Christmas season begins, the siblings gather at Gil and Kelly's to decorate. Even some of the married ones come back to the old homestead to participate in this fun family event. Below is a sneak peek from this Thursday's new episode.

  1. This program is too far behind the times. It's only Christmas here. A short 30 minute show does not take 6 months to edit and air. UP and TLC need to get with it and bring things more timely to television. Old news is not that interesting to watch. Of course, these families don't help the matter by posting every move they make on a daily basis. It only makes this matter more prominent.

    1. This is how all "reality shows" operate, at least six months behind. The Bates' show isn't UPTV's only rodeo. Any regular show or movie takes months, sometimes years to be released. It's just the nature of the business.

  2. I have to disagree with 4:30...I found this seasons episodes some of the best since the show first came on. This blog hasn’t interfered with my enjoyment of the segments, and if anything, has increased my anticipation for the show to air
    on Thursdays. I wouldn’t change a thing and thank you Bates family, UP Tv and TLC. This has been an incredible season!
