In Sunday night’s episode of NBC’s Chicago Justice titled “Dead Meat”, pig farm owner John Beckett (Michael Rispoli) is on trial for arson and the death of an employee. Beckett tells his jury at trial that he was swimming in debt due to government over-regulation.
The Obama White House got the star treatment when they were in office, so they were all-but-guaranteed the same Hollywood treatment out of office. Universal Pictures and Anonymous Content supposedly have a “high-concept workplace comedy” in the works, a movie called From the Corner of the Oval. Set for a 2018 release, the movie will be based on a book proposal from former White House stenographer, Beck Dorey-Stein.
USA Today’s Andrea Mandell’s email account must be burning up with panicky press releases from the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – each reminding her of all the “great cultural works” those agencies have brought us.
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.
As previously stated, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger has been wanting to help Donald Trump as much as possible, despite its ABC arm attacking Trump and his supporters. ABC chief Ben Sherwood is doing all he can to destroy Trump and his administration at all costs. That would be a major internal conflict at one of the largest media and entertainment conglomerates in the country.
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.
In an op-ed published in Friday’s print edition of USA Today, The Atlantic contributor and Religion News Service (RNS) columnist Jonathan Merritt lashed out at conservative Christians for opposing the so-called gay “moment” in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast remake, charging they’re coming across as “antiquated bigots” keeping people from “coexist[ing].”
As many readers know by now, the Disney-ABC Television Group has become unglued with its of liberal activism. Not only is ABC News grilling conservatives or Christian, the network’s prime time lineup is advocating for every far-left cause possible. This activism has also infected their cable operations, including ESPN, Freeform and Disney XD.
The penultimate fifth season of The Americans debuts at 10 PM EST/PST tonight (Tuesday) on FX. As I’ve written before, while the FX series humanizes undercover KGB operatives working in the U.S. on behalf of the Soviet Union, the show also illustrates the ruthlessness of Soviet communism and how the American Left in the 1980s helped advance Soviet interests.
