Viewers tuning in to New Amsterdam to learn who died in the terrible ambulance accident from the spring finale will be shocked by the answers in the series premiere. What won’t shock them was that NBC’s medical drama was packed tighter with liberal views than the hospital’s emergency room was filled with patients. No change there from last season.
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.
The Memphis-based and blues-infused new legal drama Bluff City Law has a high-minded premise: that attorneys like Elijah and Sydney Strait are fighting to “change the world” by going after evil corporations willing to “ruin your life” to protect their profits.
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.
It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
This week, 250 news organizations around the world are colluding to produce global warming propaganda in the days surrounding the UN climate summit on September 23. Variety magazine is one of the publications involved and they reported on Hollywood’s efforts to combat global warming, wondering if the entertainment industry is doing enough to sway public opinion.
Apparently we don’t get enough progressive propaganda from mainstream streaming platforms, so pop music diva and former Disney Channel child star Selena Gomez is teaming up with Netflix to deliver viewers the harrowing experience of families who live in America “undocumented.” The goal, of course, is more lefty converts.
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.
Billionaire rapper and husband to Beyonce Jay-Z has drummed up social justice angst for recently surfaced video of him claiming that communities with missing fathers are more prone to violence toward the police. Well, no duh. However, in progressive circles, this is one of the most offensive things he could have said. What self-respecting progressive could ever admit that cops might be occasionally mistreated? Or that fathers could possibly be important?
For a group of entertainment producers who kill to come off as condescendingly woke, ‘SNL’ showrunners look super inept for hiring an apparent racist as one of their new cast members. One of the sketch comedy’s new talents has been labeled a racist by CNN journalists for making fun of Chinese people in 2018. SNL is in an even deeper pickle because another new cast member for the upcoming season is actually Chinese.
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.
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.
