Not wanting to be outdone by Netflix, HBO presents its own anti-religious series in The New Pope. This companion series to HBO’s previous blasphemous, slanderous, and all-around unpleasant series The Young Pope is set to make up for the nearly three-year absence of terribleness. If the "First Episode" is any indication, we’re only getting started.
CBS’s Evil seems to be kicking off the new year with a new racist conspiracy theory. Namely, it claims that nurses literally kill black people for fun. Between this and the show’s warning about “implicit racism,” the show looks determined to make black people fear hospitals. What could possibly go wrong there?
If there’s a single show to represent how awful liberal bias can get, it’s Freeform’s Party of Five. First off, the show is a reboot of a popular series that no one wanted. Second, it’s used as a blatant excuse to shove in a forced illegal immigration agenda. Third, and most importantly, it’s not even that good. TV in 2020 can’t get much worse than this.
2020 is shaping up to be worse than 2019 if Netflix has anything to say about it. After releasing a gory fantasy just days before Christmas, Netflix kicked off the New Year with its religious drama Messiah. Let's just say the violence may have been preferable compared to this.
If you were going to tell me that 2019 would be filled with abortion plots, even more conservative hatred, and some serious blasphemy, I wouldn’t be surprised. After all, last year’s roundup hardly promised a good new year. However, the latest batch of liberal propaganda may shock and disappoint anyone, as television often does nowadays.
Apparently, Hulu thinks we need to start 2020 knowing that “gay slasher movie” is now a genre. The Los Angeles Times reported that Hulu "specifically wanted a gay slasher movie," so the streaming site’s Into the Dark horror anthology series celebrates the New Year with what is described as "gleefully remix[ing] familiar genre tropes with distinctly gay subject matter." Already the new decade is going downhill.
In case you thought 2019 was finished giving us outrageously disgusting material, look no further than Netflix’s The Witcher. The streaming service’s latest fantasy series to aims to cover all the bases of nudity, violence, language, and every other horrible thing you could fathom. And here I thought we were finished with Game of Thrones.
Less than 72 hours away from Christmas, and we still find a show denouncing and demeaning the Church. HBO’s His Dark Materials marks the day before Christmas Eve with a finale reminding us how the Church controls, oppresses, and frightens the masses for its own gain. Liberal TV clearly never takes a holiday break.
For the past ten episodes, Apple TV’s For All Mankind has been cramming its alternate history story full of pretty modern politics. It was only inevitable that one day politics would pretty much overtake putting people on the moon. The season finale does just that by giving us another illegal immigration sob story.
USA’s The Purge clearly knows all about perverting American values, so it’s not a shock that it seems to revere liberal ones. In its season finale, the show attempts to co-opt the anti-Trump “Resistance” mantra as a noble cause against a fascist government.
The Christmas season is in full swing which means it’s time for shows to insult and denigrate Christianity as a gimmick. CBS’s Evil does its part by introducing the classic scenario of a priest having sex against his studies. Heaven forbid a priest can be a main character without turning to sex.
HBO’s His Dark Materials is closing in on its finale which means we’re finally figuring out what’s going on in the story. In an unsurprising turn of events, the Church stand-in in the story written by a devout atheist is bad.
Disney+’s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series unfortunately seems to be continuing its sad decline into liberal propaganda. As predicted, the show piles on its progressive image with the franchise’s first gay romance.
CBS’s Madam Secretary has finally come to an end. Much like the impeachment hearings, this show has been obnoxiously partisan and has lasted way too long. Predictably, its series finale is the same with one last terrible call for “equality.” The December 8 finale “Leaving the Station” sees President Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) officially signing the Equal Pay and Family Leave Act.
It’s no secret at this point that For All Mankind is bending history to its liberal desires. Whether it’s portraying NASA and its astronauts as sexist or elevating Ted Kennedy to feminist president, the sky's the limit for the Apple TV series. However, this time may be the most shameful alteration of the show so far. It’s clear now that nothing is above leftist revision.
One of the first original shows exclusive to Disney+ sadly included the progressive High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. In addition to having an annoying title to type out, the show appears to be leaning more to the left than a show aimed for kids should be. Case in point, the latest episode literally has a character wearing a Pride shirt.
So far, Fox’s Empire has been spending its final season criticizing pro-lifers, supporting abortion, and mocking Christians. With only three episodes to go, the series somehow managed to also squeeze in a transgender storyline to boot. I guess there’s always room for a little more liberal pandering.
It’s officially the week of Thanksgiving, or as liberals like to call it “Genocide Day.” It’s practically a tradition as old as turkey to have leftist shows claim the holiday celebrates pilgrims killing innocent Native Americans. Fox’s long-running series The Simpsons keeps the sentiment going with reminding people that pilgrims were “oppressive colonizers.”
Apple TV’s show For All Mankind is looking to show us an alternate world where the U.S. continued the space race against the Soviet Union. Because of that, there are a lot of butterfly effects in American history, and we’ve just stumbled upon the biggest one. Apparently, we have to stop the discussion on space travel to praise the feminist actions of one President Ted Kennedy.
The 2020 election is less than a year away, so it’s high time for tv to start badmouthing the Trump campaign. For its part, ABC’s new drama Stumptown finally joins the liberal crowd with its own slam against Kellyanne Conway.
