Veterans should be some of our most honored citizens, but ongoing scandals at the Department of Veterans Affairs punish those who give us the most. Though the liberal media would prefer us to forget this issue from the Obama administration, CBS’s NCIS: Los Angeles places VA corruption front-and-center in their latest episode, "Battle Scars."
ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. usually manages to toe the line between liberal ideology and hardcore reality. Their latest story arc takes the characters to a Matrix-like alternate world where the writers can make up any reality they want. In this case, it’s a world where we still have to deal with the “nevertheless, she persisted” line like it means something.
Not even the fictional world is safe from the transgender trend. TVLand’s Lopez is one of the latest shows to bring up the ongoing fight for representing less than 1 percent of the population, but it may also be one of the few to take an honest look at how ridiculous it is for a change.
ABC’s Imaginary Mary is…well, you can just judge by the title and the concept of a grown woman with a cartoon imaginary friend how dumb it is. The show is about Alice (Jenna Elfman) trying to adapt to a relationship with a man, Ben (Stephen Schneider), who has kids. What has so far been a lame late-season blended family sitcom sunk even further with one of everyone’s least favorite modern subjects: feminism. This time, it’s in the form of a student-written high-school play which, so far, has never in history made anything better.
Just when CBS’s Superior Donuts makes me think it can avoid a racial argument, it jumps into something just as bad: insulting all Chicago police as corrupt. Why can’t we just watch a show that doesn’t have either? In the April 10 episode “Painted Love,” Franco (Jermaine Fowler) gets inspired to paint a mural to his recently-passed friend and inspiration "Bam-Bam," who also happened to be a former gang member.
As predicted, Showtime’s Homeland continues its practice of pretending right-wingers are behind all forms of fake news with a new added twist. This time, the slew of obviously faked news comes with a mob of angry ill-informed protesters reacting badly to it. Where have we seen that before?
Apparently, subtle hatred of our president exists across many dimensions of the DC universe. In a reality-bending episode of the CW show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the icing on the top of the dark timeline cake is Donald Trump.
Even when it comes to alien politics, CW’s Supergirl can’t help but insert its liberal thoughts in everything. This time, in an episode focusing on another planet on an entirely different galaxy, the writers felt the need to add a “Make America Great Again” dig. And it's just as forced as you’d think.
Netflix’s fourth Marvel series Iron Fist debuted on March 17th to, well, some lackluster reception, and I can’t say that I disagree. With an unfocused storyline, mostly dull characters, and some uninspired fight scenes, there’s barely anything redeemable in all 13 episodes. But the final nail in the coffin for this show would have to be the its swing-and-a-miss at anti-capitalist propaganda.
Man, Showtime’s Homeland really doesn’t like Alex Jones or anyone who supports him. This week’s episode marks not only the third time the character based on him was a plot point but the second time he’s been saddled with the “fake news” label, this time with the help of a few thousand fake social media accounts.
After starting off the season failing at mocking police for brutality and later gun owners, CBS’s Superior Donuts really shouldn’t be discussing any more topics to do with the police. Or race. Yet here we are with an episode on both and so much more. Let’s get started because this one is a doozy.
The liberal media has waged a rather pathetic war against what they deem “fake news” since the November election, and Showtime’s Homeland seems quick to offer its support. Not content with simply parodying a right-wing media host, the episode is a little too eager to pretty much call him a liar.
After one clearly unsuccessful story regarding immigration, Supergirl apparently thought it was ready for another try. Spoiler alert: the CW show does not improve the second time around. This week comes with a new healthy dose of pro-illegal immigrant muck.
Fox’s The Mick finally got to the much-anticipated scene of a little boy wearing a dress saying it "breezes on his vagina," and the resulting episode is somehow even worse than the trailer implied, with the poor child having sexuality confusion as a result of being made to act transgender.
Having finally watched an episode of HBO’s Girls, I can now honestly say how inane, self-righteous, raunchy, and, quite honestly, stupid the show is first-hand. This is not something I say proudly, especially when it regards a topic something that should never be covered by Lena Dunham: women’s accusations of rape.
This week ABC’s Blackish takes on the judicial system and how it relates to black people. If you think that’s a recipe for disaster…you have really good instincts. Perhaps you should spend the half-hour buying lottery tickets rather than watching another weekly lecture on the show - you’ll have a better chance of getting something good.
After the outrageous season trailer promo for Fox’s The Mick went viral, I almost thought they would be shamed into cutting the image of a 7-year-old boy wearing a dress, but apparently that image is still alive and well in this most recent episode, albeit in a different dress.
This week ABC’s The Real O’Neals focused on the often-overlooked Catholic sacrament of Confirmation. As Kenny (Noah Galvin) states, it’s an act that “strengthens our bond with the Church.” Sounds like a nice little episode, right? Nope! That connection with the Church apparently extends to seeing God as whatever you want, even a woman. Yeah, nobody shows the bond to Catholic Church stronger than The Real O’Neals.
Showtime’s Homeland is really working on trying to get back on the good side of liberals this season, even after empathizing with terrorist sympathizers and demeaning Israeli settlers. But if they want a medal for that, they’ll have to wait a lot longer than six seasons. Until then, we have to deal with their next appeasement to the liberal crowds: an Alex Jones parody.
Despite the fact that I’m a Millennial myself, I’m always surprised by the things my generation is apparently doing. CBS’s The Great Indoors adds a new shock with Millennials definition of open relationships and hookup culture.
