The July 25 episode of The Bold Type “If You Can’t Do It with Feeling,” ran with the idea of the Trump era creating a culture of fear and hate, and used that false fear to excuse violence by the left.
Freeform’s The Bold Type, which is dubbed a teen drama and centers around three young women who work at Scarlet magazine (which is based on Cosmopolitan magazine) has pretty much covered anything and everything related to sex and beaten us over the head with it in every episode so far. So, what’s left on the leftist Hollywood agenda? Abortion, of course.
TBS’s Wrecked is comical parody of the show Lost, known for its outlandish storylines and it’s one of my favorite shows on television right now. But Tuesday, July 11’s episode, “Tony Pepperoni,” went too far by making light of a very serious topic - abortion.
Every now and then, there comes a show that is so full of offensive material that you don’t even know where to start. Enter Freeform’s The Bold Type.
Netflix premiered its new original show GLOW on Friday, June 23. GLOW stands for “Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling,” and though the show is inspired by the real-life GLOW from the 80’s, the fictionalized version differs greatly from the original.
I used to be a brand ambassador for The View. It was beyond frustrating to see the way Elizabeth Hasselbeck was treated on the show and in the press. She didn’t stand a chance with 4-5 staunchly liberal women there to bully her whenever she presented a conservative opinion. Enter Heather Flynn-Kellogg (Fiona Gubbelman) on VH1’s Daytime Divas.
The Disney-owned Freeform channel premiered the pilot episode of it’s brand new show The Bold Type Tuesday, June 20, and though Variety magazine dubbed it a “teen drama” (Freeform was formerly ABC Family and is geared towards family programming), the show is very adult-oriented, from rampant sex scenes to sex toy demonstrations. All very not teen friendly!
VH1 premiered its new scripted series Daytime Divas on Monday, June 6, with lots of drama, catfighting, and controversy. The show is based on the book Satan’s Sisters by Star Jones, former co-host of The View, and follows the lives of female daytime talk TV hosts of The Lunch Hour and their behind-the-scenes interactions.
Showtime’s new comedy I’m Dying Up Here premiered on Sunday, June 4. The show, produced by Jim Carrey, centers around a group of up and coming comics trying to become successful in the 1970s. Right off the bat, the show dove into the controversial topic of abortion, with the comic applauding the legalization of abortion. He encourages all the men to cheer, saying, "That's a big win for us, too."
When you set out to watch a show with a name like I Love Dick, Amazon Prime’s newest streaming series which debuted Friday, May 12, you should already be prepared for the shock value that’s inevitable with such a title. But nothing can truly prepare you for the vile filth that this show assaults you with.
In a show that has already stunned and offended many, Monday night’s season finale of Lucifer on Fox ended with more of the same insulting anti-Christian agenda and Biblically inaccurate storyline that it’s been pushing on viewers from the start.
The first of two Family Guy episodes that aired on Sunday night, “Dearly Deported,” played both sides of the immigration debate and threw in a random swipe at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka for good measure.
The series finale of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders on May 18 ended with an emotional, heart-tugging scene and a beautiful prayer acknowledging our Creator and honoring our country and those who fight for it in the Armed Forces.
In the world of entertainment, if a single woman faces an unplanned pregnancy after sleeping with a man she barely knew and that man ends up dying and thus can’t help her support the baby, and her parents are “church people” who she fears may judge her, abortion is almost always the automatic answer given as a solution to her dilemma.
OWN’s Greenleaf, a drama that centers around mega-church Calvary World Ministries and the family who runs it (the Greenleafs), has featured the story of husband Kevin Saterlee (Tye White) and his struggle with gay desires since last season.
Season three of Amazon’s Catastrophe, which debuted on Friday, April 28, opened and closed with two strong pro-abortion messages. Catastrophe is a British sitcom that covers the life of Rob (Rob Delaney) and Sharon (Sharon Horgan) who met while on a trip to London. Rob is American and Sharon is Irish, and the two found themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy after a week of “hooking up” in London in the first season.
In a society where preborn children are treated as disposable property, and disregarded in the name of cold, sterile, euphemisms such as “reproductive rights” and “choice,” it’s rare to find a mother who actually does the opposite of putting herself above her child.
If you’re a conservative who cringes whenever the Hollywood left sneaks political punches into movies and shows, brace yourself for the brand-new Netflix original series Girlboss, which premiered April 21.
Hulu’s new show Harlots has been hard to stomach from the start. Both for its sexual depravity and raw, gritty depiction of the underbelly of the world of prostitution in 1700’s London. This is not a “pretty” version of the life of harlots, if there ever could be one.
