It is nothing new for Fox’s The Simpsons to mock Christians, but it happened once again in the March 15 episode titled “Better Off Ned.” Bart Simpson found himself in trouble and facing suspension from school over a prank gone bad, so he used a fake hand grenade during a school performance to cause a commotion.
Fox's Family Guy finds finds ways to offend both conservatives and liberals in its quests for laughs. The jokes can be either a hit or miss depending on the target. This television season has seen the show mock many groups from feminists to transgenders to devout religious believers. This week, in the episode "The Movement," on March 8, it hilariously parodied Colin Kaepernick's fame by turning Peter Griffin into an accidental face of "racial equality."
When viewers of Fox's Deputy found out on the February 13 episode that Deputy Brianna Bishop (Bex Taylor-Klaus) claimed to be more than one gender, it was only a matter of time before the show tried to insert the issue into the series plotline again. This time it's so that Sheriff Bill Hollister (Stephen Dorf) can tell her to "live your truth."
The Simpsons voiceover actor Hank Azaria is coming out about his recent decision to step down from the role of Indian “Kwik-E-Mart” owner Apu in the legendary animated series, claiming, “it just didn’t feel right.” Sure, dude, that’s exactly what we’d expect from someone who was scared straight by the Twitter woke mob.
No random opening is too small for a primetime show to incorporate the name of President Trump into an episode. An example of this is seen in the February 23 episode of Fox’s The Simpsons. In the episode titled “Frinkcoin”, Mr. Burns, Springfield’s wealthiest resident, discovers he is no longer the richest man in town.
Tim Allen's Mike Baxter is on a mission to teach exchange student Jen (Krista Marie Yu) about capitalism in Last Man Standing's February 20 episode "Baked Sale," as she figures out the best way to earn money on behalf of the Geology's club bake sale. Mike also has some choice words for capitalism's staunchest detractors in the Democrat race for president.
Sheriff Bill Hollister (Stephen Dorff) is having a busy day on the February 13 episode of Deputy. It's a day made all the more complicated by getting into a car accident with Deputy Brianna Bishop (Bex Taylor-Klaus). Being in the hospital sets Bishop off, which leads to the show's reveal that the character, like Taylor-Klause, is non-binary. What's worse is when she talks to the Sheriff's wife, Dr. Paula Reyes (Yara Martinez), the doctor claims that "there are more than two sexes."
If you wondered what kind of dad that liberal Ryan (Jordan Masterson) was going to be to his new daughter on Last Man Standing, January 23’s episode “Bedtime Story” clued us in.
Seth MacFarlane loves mocking Christians. Family Guy has called them “stupid people” and “idiots” and mocked Jesus. MacFarlane often makes a point to mock Catholics and Catholic priests, in particular. He has used the stale “pedophile priest joke” in the past. MacFarlane must be running out of material because he reached for the pedophile priest “gag” again this week on Family Guy.
Fox’s new series, Deputy, told the story of Sergeant Bill Hollister (Stephen Dorff), the great, great, great, great grandson of one of the first Los Angeles deputies killed on the job. Hollister became sheriff after the newly elected sheriff suffered a heart attack and died.
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.
Dear Hollywood writers, to quote Festivus founder Seinfeld's Frank Costanza, "I've got a lot of problems with you people, and now you're going to hear about it!" Since its December 23, it is time for Newsbusters to air its many grievances with television in a proper Festivus spirit. So I’ve grabbed my aluminum Festivus pole to give you all a piece of my mind.
