AMC’s Preacher is no stranger to controversy obviously, but the worst of the worst usually comes from the original graphic novel. The fact that the show feels confident enough to bring it to screen says more about our society than anything I could type. The latest casualty this week is the Pope.
The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want homeowners armed is even scarier.
If anyone else was tired of the cliché oppression games of last week’s episode, we’re in luck. This week, we jump back into the pure “hating men” narrative of AMC’s Dietland. Because in the world of Dietland, that’s all that matters. That and, apparently, dissing Trump.
Paid Off is a brand-new TV game show that claims to be “working to end the student debt crisis.” The show’s host even told a liberal magazine Paid Off stands on the shoulders of the Occupy Movement, revealing the game show’s tilt to the left on the issue of student loans.
Every once in a while, there comes an episode that sheds light on how dense progressive politics can be. The latest episode of TVLand’s Younger steps up to that plate by daring to call the new LGBTQ-whatever terms “confusing.” Throw in a little mockery with a fake term and this episode could wind up getting people arrested in Canada.
Looks like victimizing women might not be enough for Dietland anymore. After several episodes wallowing in female victimhood, the AMC series appears to go intersectional by hosting the oppression Olympics in a couple of scenes this week. As usual, the real losers are the viewers.
If it isn’t obvious by now, AMC’s Preacher isn’t a fan of God, Jesus, Christianity, or anything remotely resembling decency. So it comes as no surprise that the show lets out how it feels about the Creator of the universe - verbally and physically. In another less-than-shocking twist, it requires a censor just to talk about.
AMC’s new series Dietland has been pretty adamant that women are victims in America. The show has gone so far as to excuse murder in the name of feminism, so I didn’t think the rest of the season could get any worse. However, that was before I found myself seeing violent porn on television - for a full two minutes.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale is becoming more bizarre by the episode, but this week is probably the peak of silliness this season. After child brides, whipping women, and denouncing campus speakers, season two now proudly presents us with voice of the Resistance, Oprah Winfrey. Houston, I think we’ve jumped the shark.
The media are very worried about Justice Kennedy leaving for one main reason: abortion. On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement. The media immediately expressed fury that, with a pro-life judge as replacement, Roe v. Wade might be overturned. The 1973 Supreme Court decision legalized abortion on a federal level in the United States. Overturning it would leave abortion up to the states – but media figures from The New Yorker to Salon warned about abortion vanishing.
AMC’s Dietland has been a goldmine for feminist propaganda these past few weeks, and the latest episode is no exception. We’ve heard the demands from their manifesto, we’ve seen the murders they've committed against men accused of sex crimes, but now we’re listening to the main characters argue in support of their deadly use of force.
Deemed the “woke” superhero, Marvel’s Luke Cage returned June 22 on Netflix for a second season of racial issues, gun-running, drugs, corrupt politicians, and social justice. This year, however, there’s the added bonus of more Trump references. Just what every show doesn’t need nowadays!
