Well, it took them long enough, I guess. FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse the 8th installment of the AHS anthology series, officially premiered last week, but at least one reviewer called it "meh" and bemoaned it "fails to conjure any real terror." This week, however, they rack up the crazy with blood, murder, a good old-fashioned BDSM gay sex scene and propaganda. No matter the premiere, the September 19 episode “The Morning After” does not bode well for the rest of the season.
In Wednesday's episode, "The Gang Beats Boggs: Ladies Reboot," the women of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia do the Wade Boggs Challenge of drinking 70 beers on a cross-country flight. The twist is that they go on an all-female flight (except for one male attendant) to California for the Women’s March, complete with pussy hats and feminist jargon.
If you had to think of an adjective that the nation’s mainstream media would most readily apply to supporters of President Trump, what would it be? “Bigoted,” “unintelligent,” and the now-infamous “deplorable” immediately come to mind. Hardly a news cycle seems to churn by where Trump, his policies, and his proponents aren’t categorically smeared.
Stephen A. Smith, the well-known ESPN talk show veteran said Monday on his radio show that his listeners and his producers were lucky that he wasn't going political because ESPN is not a political network. Then he stealthily approached the subject of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh being accused of sexual harassment. It appears that Smith (see file photo) is seriously questioning the Supreme Court nominee's accuser, but Awful Announcing writer Phillip Bupp assumes Smith is speaking against Kavanaugh and this story demands Smith not stick to sports.
Thought you knew Sesame Street stars, Bert and Ernie? Well think again. It turns out that everyone’s favorite Sesame Street duo have actually been gay lovers this whole time. In an interview with Queerty, Sesame Street writer Mark Saltzman claimed that he had always written them “as a loving couple.”
Who would’ve thought that Hollywood is full of hypocritical airheads who are more fond of lip service than meaningful activism? Well by now, probably everybody. And if you were still under the impression that these are the saints of our time and don’t want that bubble to burst, don’t watch last night's Emmy Awards show and stay away from The Washington Post.
Netflix is celebrating after winning big at the Emmys. But the streaming giant can’t claim a win on its new documentary concerning abortion: while Netflix says it tells the “whole story,” women abortion advocates showed up 13 times more than their pro-life counterparts. And it isn’t that producers couldn’t find knowledgeable women against abortion. They did, but literally “days” of footage featuring them ended up on the cutting room floor.
Breaking: Paul McCartney is still making records. Really. Egypt Station is the former Beatles’ latest, and he’s promoting the heck out of it, with stops at Grand Central Station (where he played a promotion concert), The Jimmy Fallon Show (where he surprised lucky visitors to the 30 Rock building upon elevator doors opening), and scads of magazine interviews.
Lefty groupthink can prove harmful to your credibility. That's what happened to CBS and other lemmings who took up tennis star Serena Williams' cause of "sexism" in tennis after her loss to Naomi Osaka of Japan in the Sept. 8th championship match of the U.S. Open women's tennis tournament. The New York Times has since reported that men are punished (see photo of unnamed male tennis pro abusing umpire) by tennis officials three times as often as women, deflating charges of sexism by Williams and her compliant media.
The opening monologue of the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, airing September 17 on NBC, included a little of the usual political slams worked into Hollywood entertainment award shows. The ceremony hosts, Saturday Night Live’s "Weekend Update" hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, took swipes at Christian conservatives and Roseanne fans.
On paper, the new Amazon Prime original series Forever should be great. It stars Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph as June and Oscar, a middle-class married couple in California. Those two actors together should have made it a hilarious comedy. Instead, Forever was a rambling and pointless slog and, in the second episode, unnecessarily insulting towards Christians.
According to a recent Southern California University study, the amount of women speaking roles on television has actually declined. What?! In today’s progressive society? This is quite shameful, America. And as you well know, Hollywood lefties are going to turn around and blame you for it instead of pointing fingers at the industry giving them a platform.
