As the new season of “Chrisley Knows Best” airs, some fans have decided to re-watch old episodes of the reality TV series. The recent conviction of Todd and Julie Chrisley on fraud charges has led to a shift in perspective among fans who are now viewing the show in a whole new light.
Fans have taken to social media to express their surprise at the stark contrast between their original perception of the Chrisley family and their current view. Many are calling the show “thick with irony” as they re-watch it knowing the outcome for Todd and Julie.
The Chrisley’s are known for their larger-than-life personalities and the antics that ensue on their show. However, in light of their recent legal troubles, fans are now picking up on subtle hints and clues that may have hinted at their fraudulent behavior.
Re-watching the old episodes of “Chrisley Knows Best” has become a sobering experience for fans who now see the show through a lens of reality and heightened scrutiny.
The Irony of Re-Watching Chrisley Knows Best
The recent airing of the new season of “Chrisley Knows Best” has prompted some fans to go back and re-watch old episodes of the reality TV show. With Todd and Julie Chrisley convicted of fraud, fans have a new perspective on the show and are picking up on things they may have missed before.
One of the most striking observations made by fans is the dynamic between Todd and his children, particularly between Todd and Savannah. Fans have called attention to Todd’s clear favoritism towards Savannah, and his dismissive attitude towards Chase, which they now view as toxic and abusive.
Another point that fans have brought up is Julie’s altercation with Nanny Faye over her cookbooks, which was depicted in an old episode. Fans now see this as an indication of Nanny Faye’s kleptomania and suggest that she may have been the one who taught Todd that stealing was acceptable.
Furthermore, fans have also noted the number of references to lying and going to prison that appear throughout the show. They feel that these references are now particularly ironic given Todd and Julie’s recent legal troubles.
