CBS’s Madam Secretary is closing in on its 100th episode, so it’s bound to get crazier and crazier from here on out. Case in point, the latest episode reignites “the war on fake news” with more Russia conspiracies. Are there any other kinds anymore?
The CW once again kickstarts its big DC Comics crossover event with The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. December 9 started the three-night “Elseworlds” event with “Elseworlds Part 1” on The Flash. While The Flash is not nearly as unbearably one-sided as a certain other comic-book series whose time slot it took this Sunday, that didn’t stop the show from dropping a discredited wage gap reference, of all things.
Thanksgiving should be a time to put aside politics in favor of food, family, and the few things that still brings us together in commonality. For CW’s Supergirl, however, it’s another time to bring up politics for their leftist agenda. Sadly, the American holiday becomes yet another political talking point for the Girl of Steel.
We’ve finally reached the end of the season for Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, and it couldn’t get here fast enough. As usual, the comedian takes the half-hour to promote liberal politics, slam conservatives, and endlessly insult Trump. Remember back when her stated goal was to "connect with un-like-minded people"? Because I doubt she does. I know I shouldn’t expect anything from the series that has gone on more than twenty episodes, but I keep getting disappointed.
Remember how Fox’s Empire claimed two weeks ago that people are thrown in prison for being "born black or brown?" Apparently, that wasn’t enough for this show. The latest episode now has the claim that black and brown people are constantly threatened with death by the police anytime they're called on the scene.
NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victims Unit is back with another whopper of an episode. After covering illegal immigration and school shootings, the fictional cop show kicks the bias up a notch by addressing the Justice Kavanaugh allegations. What could possibly go right with this?
Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman is really pulling out all the stops for its last few episodes this year. After disparaging the GOP, smearing Kavanaugh, and demeaning Jesus Christ, she finally lets out all her feelings regarding "human garbage" Donald Trump - at least until next week. Leftist comedian Bill Maher is also on hand to dub Trump "the worst human."
The end is in sight for the latest season of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, but that doesn’t stop every episode from being more excruciating than the last. In a true pinnacle of awfulness, she provides a sketch with the voting, swearing, pansexual version of Jesus Christ. It just goes to show that when they go low, Sarah goes lower.
For the past few weeks, American Horror Story: Apocalypse has been nothing more than the gross, depraved show we’ve come to know and loathe over the past few years. Wednesday’s episode, however, dropped us a little Halloween treat by directly bashing the National Rifle Association. Here I hoped I only had to worry about the violent gay sex.
Fox’s Empire has been pretty quiet this season, but sadly, all good things must come to an end. The latest episode has brought back the series’ blatant leftist politics by claiming people are thrown in prison simply for being black or brown.
CBS All-Access decided to celebrate Halloween its own way with the release of its fairy-tale-based series Tell Me A Story. Described as “a dark and twisted psychological thriller” set in modern-day New York, the show aims to subvert expectations regarding the characters from three classic children's stories. By this, I mean there's lots of cursing, some casual sex, and, of course, references to Trump’s America. I doubt the Grimm brothers could have foreseen that outlook.
CW’s Supergirl is not just terrible at playing politics but at being subtle as well. First, it showed an image of Supergirl literally holding a flag in a hypocritical attempt to preach unity. Now, it presents the white male conservative-esque leader of an “Earth First” movement as the bad guy. I’ve seen DNC ads less partisan than this episode.
The October 25 episode of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman took a break from its usual diatribe of insulting Trump and conservatives. Just kidding. This week, Silverman focused on bashing Trump and conservatives while giving praise to modern Spartacus Senator Cory Booker. She has truly become that predictable.
CBS’s Madam Secretary clearly thinks white nationalism is a threat. In fact, it needed Hillary Clinton herself to explain why nationalism is bad. This week’s episode continues that streak with a talk about the deadly threat to black people from both white nationalist terrorists and police officers.
HBO’s The Deuce has finally touched upon the feminist’s golden calf of abortion. After nudity, gay sex and profiting off porn for 16 episodes straight, I’m only surprised it took them this long. The October 21 episode “The Feminism Part” features a scene with prostitute Darlene (Dominique Fishback) taking an old-fashioned pregnancy test after a night with her pimp Larry (Gbenga Akinnagbe).
CW’s Supergirl has built up quite a rap sheet of liberal offenses over the years. But that’s all supposed to change since this fourth season will, allegedly, “try and unite a divided people,” according to executive producer Robert Rovner. From this second episode alone, I’m going to have to call that bluff.
Since this was a Thursday, we had yet another obnoxious episode of Sarah Silverman’s Hulu show I Love You, America to suffer through. In her latest attempt to degrade the right, she now claims that the country is “dog shit,” with Republicans outright suppressing minority votes. Sooner or later, she has to run out of curse words for us meany right-wingers.
FX’s Mayans M.C. has been a wild card of issues as far as TV goes. We’ve jumped from wall jabs to racist border enforcers to abortion all within seven episodes. This latest week, however, gets us back to what’s really important: taking down Trump.
Once again, CW’s Black Lightning is playing politics. First the series claimed the police are straight-up murdering black kids, and now they're going after George W. Bush. And here I thought Trump jokes were getting old!
Fox’s The Gifted has clearly opted for a left-leaning perspective this season, and it unfortunately seems like this trend won’t end anytime soon. That’s why this one scene in the latest episode of the X-Men series took me by surprise. In a brief moment, the show reminded us about the innate value of human life, even in the womb.
