colonists Amy-Kristina and Jonathon talk about lingering effects of colonial life.
In a chat with WashingtonPost.com visitors, Colonial House‘s Amy-Kristina Herbert and Jonathon Allen answered questions (The Wyers family chatted on Tuesday). Among the revelations: Amy-Kristina is dating Danny Tisdale, and she says her departure was pre-planned because the producers, not knowing that the Wyers family would leave, wanted to see what would happen if someone left the colony. She also says that the effects of colonial life linger to this day. She says, “everything was too sweet for me when I got back, and I still have to water down juice. I don’t eat a lot of sugar anymore. I forget to turn lights on in the house.” The show concludes next Monday and Tuesday with four more episodes. Like the DVDs of the other House series shows, this series will be released on DVD June 12.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
