It didn’t take long for Batwoman to show up on our radars again. The CW show already started off bland and annoying, and now it’s back for more. Given our social justice warrior lead, it only makes sense to make a Trump stand-in the bad guy.
Abortion has been a surprisingly popular topic in television this week. New Amsterdam, Bull, and Empire have all openly referenced, debated, or supported the right to kill an unborn child. Now NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is joining the pack with a plot focused entirely around abortion.
Apparently, Fox’s Empire wasn’t finished lecturing us about abortion. The October 15 episode “Tell the Truth” decides to take everything they said about “pro-life” beliefs and make it worse. This time, Christians and pro-life women are the ones to pay. As you may recall from a couple of weeks earlier, one of Empire Entertainment’s leading performers Tiana (Serayah) was part of a small scandal after posting “All life is precious” on her Instagram account in response to the difficult birth of Andre’s (Trai Byers) son.
It has been nearly two years since the last episode of USA’s Mr. Robot and I can’t think of a single person who suffered from it. After all, we’re still bombarded with shows that denounce capitalism and Donald Trump. The last thing we need is a product of NBCUniversal telling us that corporations are bad. Sadly, the latest episode of the series does just that by tying corporations and various right-wing figures to a global terrorist conspiracy.
The record-breaking primetime series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit prides itself on its “ripped from the headlines” stories. Lately, however, it’s been more known for its heavily biased stories that take only one political side of the story. The same is true in the NBC show’s take on one of the most infamous recent fake hate crimes: the Jussie Smollett case.
The Ryan Murphy-produced American Horror Story has returned for a new season titled 1984, and so far, it’s been pretty tame compared to earlier seasons. Sure, the FX series still contains the usual amount of gore, sex, and vapid characters, but unlike Cult, there’s nocontinuous onslaught of outrageous liberal bias.
Unfortunately for us, Fox’s Empire seems to have more to say about politics than its hatred for Donald Trump. Even worse, it involves targeting and lecturing the supposedly "anti-choice," "pro-birth" mindset of pro-lifers. With this being the final season, I guess the show doesn’t care who it attacks anymore.
Netflix’s Raising Dion is the latest edition to the ever-growing genre of superhero media. Unfortunately, it’s also the latest edition to the ever-growing genre of liberal propaganda. After all, only a progressive mind could believe that claiming the world is out to get African-Americans is a good thing.
Here’s something that’s already becoming routine: a CW superhero series acting political. CW’s Black Lightning has returned for a third season, and it wasn’t slow on bringing back its usual bias. In fact, it’s taken it up a notch by literally blaming the President for caging children in their city.
Liberals rejoice! Your dream of a Hillary Clinton presidency finally is coming true on CBS’s Madam Secretary. The sixth and final season of the show features the titular Madam Secretary now serving as the first female president in the midst of her first 100 days. Of course, even though she’s the perfect president, the series still uses her position to get out some last few Trump scandal jabs.
Batwoman, featuring the first lesbian superhero lead on television, is the latest comic-book series adapted by the CW. Unfortunately, following in the footsteps of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman also is annoyingly preachy and obsessed with social justice. Even worse, it’s not even fun about it.
The pilot for CBS’s new series Evil last week was interesting to say the least. The show followed an agnostic forensic psychologist and a budding priest investigating the validity of supernatural events, and yet, religion wasn’t maligned every few minutes. But in the second episode, all that goodwill was spent on morally ambiguous priests and a cry of "implicit racism."
A show created by noted liberal producer Ryan Murphy that’s literally called The Politician was never going to be unbiased. Predictably, we get the usual leftist fanfare along with an obnoxious and downright hypocritical takedown of the white, rich, and privileged under Donald Trump. (It’s not like Netflix has a shortage of those.)
We’ve finally come to the end of AMC’s Preacher, and what a mess it has been getting here. From stomach-churning gore to constant blasphemy to straight up portraying God as the bad guy, it’s been nonstop hatred towards a faith that inspires literally billions. And now, after four seasons, the show finally signs off with probably the most slanderous and yet most predictable sentiment of them all.
Despite the utterly embarrassing Jussie Smollett scandal earlier this year, the FOX series Empire managed to gain one final season. Though Smollett’s character has been unceremoniously written out, that still won’t stop the show from dropping its own political jabs now and then. Case in point, the September 24 season premiere “What Is Love” references a desire to throw Donald Trump’s “lying ass” in prison.
We’re getting closer to the final endgame in AMC’s Preacher. The best way viewers can tell that is surprisingly not because of the constant depictions of an evil God or by demeaning Jesus and religious believers. No, the penultimate episode does all that plus a lazy political jab. The series may finally be running out of steam.
Here’s a pattern that’s feeling familiar: AMC’s Preacher hating God and all aspects of religion. Unfortunately for us, each episode tends to be worse than the last to keep things edgy, and the latest episode is no exception. Here, we see God taking a direct and bloody action towards destroying His creation.
Hulu’s horror anthology series Into the Dark finally completed its twelve month, twelve episode season with its September 6 episode “Pure.” Each episode ordinarily revolves around a holiday or notable day in the month it airs, so why did the show pick the obscure “Daughters’ Day” over the much more obvious Labor Day for September? Apparently, it’s so the series can force its feminist, anti-Christian message.
Praise the Lord, HBO’s The Deuce is finally airing its third and final season. Although the network still has a sick obsession with sex and nudity, we can at least close the book on this awful series pretty soon. Until then, we have to contend with more sex, drugs, and porn films even within this season premiere. As a bonus, they even throw in a little blasphemy.
The AMC series Preacher is finally drawing to a close with only a handful of episodes left to go. Sadly, they still won't lay off on mocking God, Jesus, or religion. This time, the show insults all three along with the people who believe in God. It’s a busy hour.
