For All Mankind may be interested in showing us its alternative history, but that’s nothing compared to showing us its propaganda. The Apple TV+ series continues to push its feminist agenda by dragging NASA as male-driven and sexist. What isn’t sexist to TV writers these days?
This is the final season of the CW’s superhero drama series Arrow. Not only does this bring the end of the show that brought us the shared TV universe of The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman, it’s also the writers’ last chance to make a political statement. Sadly, the show decided to reveal its real priorities by throwing in a last-minute MAGA reference for the bad guy.
Veterans Day might not be until Monday, but USA’s The Purge started things off with its own rotten take on the day. Like most things this series does, it’s tone-deaf, spiteful of America, and perverts any good feeling about anything patriotic. It’s almost a tradition for liberal shows at this point.
As we once again near the Christmas season, the last thing we need is yet another show dragging Christianity, religion, or God in general. Sadly, HBO gives us a show that does all three in its latest series His Dark Materials. Based on the books by noted atheist Philip Pullman, this latest adaptation continues the story’s usual controversy of despising Christianity and the Church and making them the bad guys.
Apple TV+ is the latest addition to the streaming service industry and with that comes many new original shows - and lots of opportunity for a liberal agenda. One of the new series includes For All Mankind, an alternative history story that explores what would have happened if the USSR landed on the moon first in 1969, three episodes of which were released November 1. It’s an intriguing premise, so, like most streaming service shows, it’s ruined by progressive bias.
Hulu’s horror anthology series Into the Dark is kicking off Thanksgiving celebrations a little early this year. Considering some of their last holiday-themed installments include perverting the Fourth of July and Christianity, it only seems naturally to attack one of liberals’ most controversial holidays, on All Saints’ Day, nonetheless. Get ready for a predictably violent and moralizing tale of a beloved family gathering because apparently that’s the only way to tell the story.
Even in its final season, CBS’s Madam Secretary is still managing to squeeze in more liberal pandering. As if the Hillary Clinton-esque female president wasn’t enough, now we get a scene fawning over the press. It’s enough to make one thankful the ending’s only five episodes away.
FX’s Mayans M.C., a spinoff of Sons of Anarchy, has been its usual overtly violent self in its second season. There have been quite a few dismemberment scenes, shootings, and other gruesome events, but what really sticks out is their blatant politics. Considering most of the show takes place near the border between Mexico and California, it’s no wonder that the characters bemoan the “paranoia” surrounding illegal immigrants.
This is sadly starting to become routine. On October 24, Netflix released yet another teen show with obnoxious, foul-mouthed kids acting “woke” and being self-obsessed to the point of to the point of killing each other. The only difference now is that it involves the apocalypse. Basically, that makes it The Society with more violence.
Based on the John Green novel with the same name, Hulu’s teen drama Looking for Alaska recently debuted on October 18. Like most teen shows nowadays, it’s chock-full of sexualized teenagers making poor life choices such as drinking, smoking, and viewing pornography for pointers. This time, however, we’re also surprised by a random appearance from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
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.
