Hogan knows best, but nobody is listening!

"This show is brilliant as an example of what NOT to do as a parent and how easy it is to cross the line in an effort to win your childrens love by spoiling them and not holding them accountable for their actions. It should be plain to anybody watching why Nick Hogan ended up in jail and Brooke doesn't have much of a career as a singer...and why Linda, emboldened by her reality TV fame has regressed herself into a fantasy land. Hulk comes off as a caring dad who wants the best for his family but in an effort to make up for years away is all talk and no action when it comes to being strict and teaching his kids responsibility. I feel sorry for him now that the reality of his life has gone so wrong....he's broken down physically and at a time when he should be able to enjoy life and watch his kids grow up he's overseeing a disaster of epic proportions with his good intentions and lax supervision to blame. Hoganstein is what this should be called because of the monsters he's created.
This is one time where the show is more real than you could imagine...and while its severely edited to create a story arc its easy to see the sad sad reality. Nick Hogan is now starring in his own version of Red Asphalt."
Hogan Knows Best, but doesnt know when to retire

"Don't judge this review by the stars and title, I was a hulkamaniac and would still pay to see Hulk wrestle.
However what I am not a fan of is reality TV. I only picked this one up because a lot of friends said it was not that much of a reality TV show, but funny.
However, after watching it, I can see what they where saying, but what it's left me feeling is that Terry Bolleah is an a*****.
The way he treats his daughter and telling her she needs to be thin and should only eat healthy to me was just wrong. And the way he tells his son he can't date a girl because he should be looking for more girls is fubar.
I can understand he is a protective parent, but there is a limit, like secretly stalking your daughter by a gps unit and calling her every time they go down a street that they did not inform Hogan of.... come on, let them live a little, teach them how to have safe sex if there going to do it, not tell them sex is a bad thing and they are not allowed to do it.
Plus, a lot of things seemed to be copying stuff I saw on the Osbourne's. And it makes me wonder if anything they show is legit, or if it's scripted. Seems strange you see maybe a dog or two in one episode, then the next there is 100 animals everywhere.... is it selective editing, or someone coming up with something that might be interesting for that episode?
From a few clips I saw on youtube, it seems like season 2 got funnier, I might check that one out later, but as for season 1, i have lost a lot of respect for Hogan if that is the way he really treats his kids."
