NBC’s The Carmichael Show is a show that, while leaning liberal, still manages to crack jokes at the crazier left-wing antics (which seem to be happening more often recently). If you need any more proof, just know that this episode managed to work in the Women’s March with only minimum eye-rollage and a few laughs along the way.
Season two of AMC’s Preacher has been relatively quiet if only for the fact that violence and crude behavior seem to be a weekly occurrence on the show. But now, the most recent episode gives us a reminder of about how staunchly anti-religious it can be by going after the Good Book itself: the Bible. Even in physical form, the Bible can’t catch a break.
Netflix’s latest original series Gypsy debuted its ten-episode season on June 30, and honestly, I have been dreading its release all the way. With its trailer alone promoting the plot of a psychiatrist having an affair with her patient’s ex-girlfriend, I couldn’t help but fear what they DIDN'T show. Could it really get any worse than that? Sprinkling in a few more graphic sex scenes and a gender confused eight-year-old, I must say yes.
AMC’s Preacher returned for a second season this week, and it didn’t waste a moment to get back to the gory, irreverent, and overblown show that people know and apparently love. Yes, the season opener proves we are in for more of the same, courtesy of another awful depiction of religion.
The Mist just premiered on the Spike channel, and if the June 22nd pilot episode is anything to go on, we are in for a long, painfully dull, self-righteous, and gory season. After all, what else can we expect from a television show based on a story by Stephen King?
Showtime’s new show I’m Dying Up Here is already well past the level of even pretending to be decent, so I’ll just get right to it. We’re three episodes in, and the show has not yet improved on the over-played cursing, the most degrading crude humor, and the occasional near-nudity. This week, however, the show decided to drag fatherhood down with it…on Father’s Day, of all times.
TBS’s Angie Tribeca often takes a turn for the ridiculous when it comes to their plots, but the most recent episode seemed more willing to go for brutal when it came to oil tycoons. Namely, while murderers can be awful, the real monsters are oil moguls.
The finale to The CW's Supergirl was thankfully focused more on action than politics despite what its title "Nevertheless, She Persisted" would have us believe. However, the final episode of the politically-charged second season still could not avoid a few glaring missteps as it flies off into the summer.
The season may be almost over, but the CW’s Supergirl isn’t prepared to let go of its liberal bias, even at the end of the world. In the confusingly backwards minds of their writers, an administration like Trump's is as bad as an alien invasion to the point where a president hiding the fact that she's an alien is ok - so long as she's still a Democrat, of course.
Aziz Ansari’s Netflix show Master of None returned for a second season on May 12, which means another chance to sneer at conservative culture and white people. This time, among other sins, the worst of the worst centers on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
We’ve finally come to the end of the presidential election nightmare storyline on ABC’s Scandal which means a return to plots that don’t have to do with elite bureaucrats for once. Unfortunately, that just gives the show more opportunities to return to its liberal talking points - I mean roots. This week, it’s the unfriendly message that apparently Trump supporters are potential racist church bombers.
ABC’s Scandal has still not gotten past the fictional inauguration of their next president. Granted, that isn’t that much different from how things are for liberals in the real world, but now it’s getting tiring. Wait, that’s not different from real life either. The show just keeps getting dragged down by real-world elements, and this episode sees a recycle of the term Hillary supporters embraced for themselves: “nasty woman” and of the claim that Hillary lost because of sexism.
Note to self: segregation is apparently a good thing now. I mean, we should totally be against segregation, unless a minority person says it’s okay, but even then segregation can still be wrong. Confused? ABC’s Blackish does little to help.
ABC’s Modern Family puts the awful Women’s March front and center in their latest episode, bringing with it all those biased and misleading talking points that come when liberals discuss what they consider “feminism.”
Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is usually one of the funniest shows in the humor wasteland of political correctness, but I guess it couldn’t last. The most recent episode decided to take a more serious and pointedly less funny approach to talk about racial profiling. Who knew that sitcoms weren’t the best places for one-sided racial politics?
CBS’s Superior Donuts has had its fair share of race-baiting, anti-police bias, and other clearly questionable opinions over the past season. Fortunately, this week’s episode gave viewers a quick grab bag of several questionable, off-putting, and just plain wrong moments for the whole family.
I have to give it to The Simpsons on this one. They know when something is clearly past its time. This week’s episode of the Fox sitcom tackles two things that just didn’t die fast enough: the Pokémon Go fad and Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
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.
