Millions of people love Apple computers and wouldn't be caught using a PC. By contrast, there are many millions of PC users who feel the same way about Apple computers. Many men like double-breasted suits, but I wouldn't be caught dead in one. Some people swear by Cadillac cars, but my favorite is Mercedes-Benz.

The 2-part season finale of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, “The Judas Cradle” and “Morning Glory,” which aired Sunday night, wrapped up the season with this message: Those in favor of assisted suicide are “the good ones.” Those against assisted suicide are “bad guys.” Even in the midst of a murder investigation, her partner turning on her, and her daughter never wanting to speak to her again, Holy Mary (Caroline Dhavernas) still finds the time to kill people. She meets a man suffering from cystic fibrosis in a hotel room, and the two proceed to push the show’s justifications for assisted suicide, likening “refusing to let people die” to medieval torture.

For-profit health insurance and government medical care mean one thing for patients: what
was once ‘basic and ordinary’ is increasingly regulated, rationed, and often denied to those who
need it most.

Let’s face it, in the age of “woke” celebrities and ESPN talking heads, “shut up and sing” (or act, or catch the ball, etc.) is an increasingly unrealistic conservative ideal. Yes, many of us would love to be entertained without politics – right or left – intruding. But it ain’t gonna happen.

A 77-year-old man died the other day, and, according to The Nation’s Walsh, it should have been a major learning moment for the Republican Party. In a Thursday piece about the career and legacy of former Fox News Channel boss Roger Ailes, Walsh mused that the passing of the GOP’s “intellectual patron” might “serve as a warning to the party” that “anger, arrogance and seething resentment of a rapidly changing country can be fatal.”

The May 17 episode of NBC’s reliably liberal Law and Order: Special Victims Unit quickly picked up the mantle of anti-Christian media, portraying Christians as humorless stiffs who believe rape can cure homosexuality. The episode centers on Ann Davenport, a small town girl from Indiana on a church trip to New York City. While the group is meandering through Times Square, Ann has the audacity to reach out to her lesbian friend Lydia who left Indiana at 16 to move to the city.

Wednesday night's episode of Fox's Shots Fired, "Hour 9: Come to Jesus," continued to build on its storyline in which wealthy white donors are furnished with guns and tasers – as part of the "Tours" program—and take part in ride-alongs with racist police in the fictional town of Gate Station, North Carolina. To recap, a wealthy white donor executed black teenager Joey Campbell while he was helpless, on the ground, and crying for his mother. What else would you expect from a wealthy white man armed with a gun? In tonight's episode, we learn that the wealthy white donor – who also happens to be building a private prison (classic!) – thought he was taking out his taser, intending only to stun the boy. Instead, he slaughters the poor youth.

I don't know how it's possible but the May 15 episode of ABC’s Quantico, titled "Resistance," was even more transparent in its attempts to be a dark allegory for the Trump era. Just as the creator and showrunner indicated in a recent interview, this show is meant to resemble the current political landscape. Because of Trump, they say the idea of another Constitutional Convention is "not outside the realm of possibility anymore, which is so scary."

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.

Sunday night’s episode of Lifetime’s Mary Kills People, “Raised by Wolves,” continued to praise Mary for her lethal mission despite her and her partner’s doubts. The episode also revealed that Mary helped her mother commit suicide when she was only 16. In the wake of her ongoing investigation for murder, Mary (Caroline Dhavernas) visits her sister and tells her about her side job. When her sister, Nicole, looks reasonably shocked, Mary explains, “These people need me okay? No one else will help them. I’m a doctor and it’s medicine.” Of course, Nicole quickly comes around to seeing the apparent good in the service Mary provides.

House Intelligence Committee ranking member, California Rep. Adam Schiff, was the political guest on the May 12 episode of Netflix’s Chelsea, titled “Answer Me This.” Schiff serves as the House Select Intelligence Committee co-chair in the investigation of President Trump’s possible ties to Russia. While discussing the reasons given for the dismissal of F.B.I. Director James Comey, Schiff said, “It just doesn’t pass the smell test.”

A new Miss USA was crowned on Sunday night on FOX, but it wasn’t without some political controversy. Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough won the title, much to the chagrin of liberals who didn’t like her conservative answers in the question rounds. Her thought crimes? Saying health care is a privilege, not a right, and rejecting man-hating feminism in favor of equal opportunity.
