If you're planning on watching the season premiere of "Duck Dynasty" tonight, then you might first want to read this review of the program by the New York Times' TV critic.

The Times wrote, "We can already assume that the ratings for the double-episode premiere of Season 5 on Wednesday will be huge because certain conservatives, coming to Mr. Robertson’s defense, have made 'Duck Dynasty' a rallying point of sorts. But whatever numbers the show puts up, this will be a different 'Duck Dynasty' in one sense. For Seasons 1 through 4, this reality series about a Louisiana family that makes duck calls was harmless fun for anyone other than ducks. Now it has been politicized, which is too bad."

It's an interesting point, whether you love the show or hate it. The flap over Phil Robertson's comments makes it impossible to view the show's future success or failure without considering its place in today's political arena.
