Here's a story... of a lovely family... with a very different twist. Laura and Todd Bruce, and their seven children were a happy blended American family, living a lavish life of vacations, expensive dinners, summer homes and more money than they could spend. Fast forward four years to a crippling recession, and you'll see the Bruce's flat broke with two homes in foreclosure, a collapsed contracting business and a daily struggle to make rent. The Bruce family's challenge of living life with nine people on a poverty-level budget is the focus of WE tv's riveting new one-hour, eight episode-series, "DOWNSIZED", premiering Saturday, November 6 at 9:00PM ET/PT. Witness a modern day "Brady-bunch" use love, humor and discipline to navigation the very real stresses of life in modern America. (Source: WE TV)

We're supposed to feel sorry for these people and consider them heroes of the American spirit? They were much better off than anybody that's been living below the poverty line all this time, and now that the Bruces are joining millions in the soup kitchens, they're suddenly plucky, hard-working Americans that symbolize how we all should pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and tough out this financial crisis? Is that what the network is selling us now? These people are not heroes, they are the roadkill of the upper middle class, not planning for the future. Maybe they would be doing better with birth control, planning their family; if they could afford two houses they sure as heck could have afforded some condoms. Read more
