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.
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.
The second episode of this season of Billions, “Dead Cat Bounce,” had Showtime’s much praised gender non-conforming star begin transitioning to the forefront of the show. Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon), Axe Capital’s new intern with exceptional financial prowess, makes a game-changing discovery regarding a business competitor. Before reporting the findings to the CEO, Taylor lists “their” preferred pronouns in an introduction.
The second episode of this season of Showtime’s Billions, which aired February 19, illumines the left’s belief that any sort of success must be associated with moral indecency. The show revolves around the power politics between billionaire hedge-fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes (Paul Giammati).

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.
One can be forgiven for considering reality stranger than fiction these days, but nothing will remind you how ridiculous political shows can be like the 6th season premiere of Showtime’s Homeland. If this episode is any indication, get ready for a new season of political correctness, terrorism edition.
Move over, transgenders. There’s a new kid in town. Huffington Post reported that Billions will make “TV history” for featuring the first gender non-conforming star in a mainstream show. Showtime, Billions host network, has a history of pushing boundaries with its leading characters. Season seven of Shameless included a major character who was transgender, played by a transgender actor.
So, as we have discussed before, Showtime’s Billions does not shy away from the dramatic. Though, at times they may shy away from telling the absolute truth.
So it’s been a while since I’ve written about Showtime’s Billions. Mainly because the show is just awesome and largely unbiased.
A strong indicator that the plot of your show might be a tad underwhelming is when you feel compelled to make your opening scene an orgy of sadomasochistic torture. I won’t describe it. Just watch, if you dare.
If you suspected that Showtime had a liberal agenda, the June 9 finale of “Years of Living Dangerously” confirmed it.
The finale of Showtime’s “Years of Living Dangerously” wrapped up a long effort to push climate alarmism with an interview between New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and President Barack Obama. Friedman and Obama agreed on the need to connect extreme weather events to climate change in order to sway public opinion, showcasing the partisan political goal of the Showtime series.
