This past year the cast began filming and airing the 18th season of the series. It is hard to believe how time flies. It goes without saying that the show and the members of the cast have undergone a lot of minor and major changes over the years.

However, in the thread, the reality television show’s fans brought up a very interesting point in regard to changes that have taken place over the course of the seasons.  As one fan explained, “Watching as a first time viewer, it’s insane how much that happened between the last episode of season 3 and the first episode of season 4.” Many comments and viewers echoed this similar message.

A fan followed up commenting, “I noticed that too! In Season 1-3 they were moderately rich and after that: BOOM! Super rich, everyone has big mansions and super expensive cars.”

Season 3 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was a wild ride. The season kicked off with Khloé Kardashian preparing to serve jail time. The sentencing was linked back to an earlier DUI she received. Though it probably wasn’t the reality television star’s proudest moment, she definitely had a lot of amazing moments throughout the season.

Kourtney Kardashian began branching out and working on her own image as she tested the waters with her mom as her manager. On a more personal level, Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian had a lot of funny, yet challenging, moments when it came to sister stuff and borrowing clothes. There seemed to be a level of authenticity that fans and viewers were loving that made this season such a fan favorite. 

What happened in Season 4 of ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’? 

In the Reddit discussion, many fans expressed that there seemed to be a definite disconnect between Season 3 and Season 4 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Many viewers believe that the cast’s changing attitude toward money is one of the only explanations for the disappointing change. One fan bluntly stated, “that season 3 to 4 transition to me is also when they went from attainable rich to fuck you money rich.”

Some comments explained how the transformation between Season 3 and Season 4 was so drastic that viewers began to wonder if they missed some episodes. 

A lot of Season 4 focused on Kourtney Kardashian’s unexpected pregnancy, and Khloé Kardashian’s surprise love and wedding with Lamar Odom. Kim Kardashian seemed to be struggling with her breakup from Reggie Bush. Amidst these life-changing moments, the stars of the reality television show upgraded their lavish lifestyles to the next level. 

At the end of the day, the Reddit discussion shows that a lot of fans and viewers of Keeping Up With the Kardashians were less than thrilled with the changed attitudes and lifestyles that began in season 4.
