In a particularly distasteful storyline involving a war veteran, Lifetime’s UnREAL cynically used a soldier’s service in Iraq to win the affection of the bachelorette, aka suitress, in the fictional dating show Everlasting. One of his rival contestants is a liberal pacifist, so the producers of the show decide to exploit the veteran’s story and pit the two against each other as a rating winner.
Last week, Showtime’s Homeland kicked off what turned out to be a string of fictional plot lines involving the impeachment or removal of the President of the United States (Sunday's The Good Wife even talked about assassination). Now the April 22 episode "All In" turns all that talk into action when they officially "remove a President so despised, her own Cabinet lined up to get rid of her." I’m sure the left wing is getting chills just hearing about such a prospect happening.
The Good Fight’s obsession with President Trump has gone from ridiculous to terrifying. Impeaching President Trump isn’t enough for the CBS All Access show. On Sunday’s episode, “Day 457,” a character makes multiple references to assassinating the president.
NBC’s comedy Superstore joined the ranks of other Hollywood shows that devalue unborn human life, likening a preborn baby to a “horrible parasite eating and pissing inside” of the surrogate mother and comparing him/her to a “bag of garbage” who should “figure out its own gender.”
After seven seasons, ABC’s Scandal has finally aired its last episode. Over the course of 124 episodes, the Shonda Rhimes-produced series has pretty much covered every aspect of the liberal agenda. However, as the finale proves, there’s always time to squeeze in a little more, especially when it comes to knocking white male privilege and promoting gun control. I guess it’s better to go out with an insufferable bang than with an annoying whimper.
Yes, it's happening again for the third time this week: ABC’s Designated Survivor joined the growing number of shows focusing on ousting a president from office. Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have a trend. The April 18 episode “Kirkman Agonistes” follows the public leak of audio notes from President Tom Kirkman’s (Kiefer Sutherland) private therapy sessions after the death of his wife. Because of the leaks, the press and even D.C. bureaucrats begin questioning Kirkman’s fitness to lead the nation.
In the April 18 episode of Fox’s Empire, titled “Of Hardiness is Mother,” a random profane line is inserted into a conversation about Cookie’s rising blood pressure as she blames it on President Trump’s tweeting. Yes, really. Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) suffered a heart attack during last week’s episode and the Lyon family is scrambling to help her fully recover. In order to change her lifestyle into a healthier one, Lucious (Terrence Howard) hires a chef to prepare heart-healthy meals for the family.
They’re on a roll and they can’t be stopped! NBC’s ultra-liberal high school drama Rise is in its sixth week and they aren't showing any signs of slowing down their obvious leftist agenda.
CW’s Black Lightning finally comes to the close of a mostly uneventful yet still obnoxiously SJW first season. The latest comic-book series decides to end on a low note with a "Make America Great Again" reference from the bad guy. I guess the only real supervillain in media nowadays is Trump.
What is it lately that makes the Hollywood left work Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg into ordinary, even rather boring, sitcoms? It happened again in the April 16 episode of CBS’s Man With a Plan titled “King for a Day.” This time it is because a liberal mom doesn’t want her daughter playing dress up like a princess.
After a lengthy hiatus, CW’s Supergirl has finally returned to fight for truth, justice, and the social justice way. Sure enough, the most recent episode does not disappoint with a reminder on how hard black men have it in America. At least we’re back on schedule.
It’s a timeless tale in the world of Hollywood entertainment. One can’t seem to escape the constant attacks on prayer and Christianity across a wide variety of television shows, but it appears the attacks are becoming more frequent lately. NBC’s time travel drama Timeless took its turn in Sunday’s episode, “The Kennedy Curse,” as a main character takes credit for answering his mother’s prayers instead of attributing it to God, Who, he claims, “doesn’t exist.”
