The seventh season of Showtime’s Homeland may be dealing with an out-of-control president, but the second episode just introduced a new potential threat on the horizon. Make no mistake, they may just take a story about a female Democrat president's abuse of power against innocent citizens and still manage to demonize the right.
As bad as the establishment press's coverage of national stories is, the situation with bias, ignorance, and sloppiness seen at local and regional news outlets may be worse. Here's an example from Monday: A story at St. Louis TV station KSDK about "crimes involving stolen guns" was headlined "More legal guns used in St. Louis area crimes."
While the the liberal media lauds fascist dictators at the Winter Olympics, liberal Hollywood lectures us (with a wink and a nod) about fascist presidents on Showtime’s Homeland.
Last week, I mentioned that all did not bode well for traditional values in TNT’s latest series The Alienist, and the second episode already confirms my worst fears. We have gone from implying “progressive” behaviors to actually showing them in a way that has me giving up my faith in human decency. After all, it’s clear that The Alienist gave up on that a long time ago.
To many fans’ pleasure, TNT’s latest show The Alienist finally premiered after years of production stalls. Based on the 1994 novel of the same name, the show is poised to add another outlet of gore, misplaced moral messaging, and perhaps the blandest depiction of Theodore Roosevelt you’ll ever see. All of this coming from the first of a ten-episode season.
Hulu’s original series The Path recently returned for a third season by premiering three new episodes. Since the show follows a fictional religious movement, it’s appropriate that it, too, falls under the liberal cult mentality of Trump bashing. At least we’re all on the same page now.
It has become a standard trope for the Trump era: patriotism is racist. And, although USA’s Damnation takes place during the Depression Era, it's not a stretch to think a racist group calling themselves patriots is supposed to parallel liberal fears of Neo-Nazis, the KKK, and other bigots of today.
With Christmas only one week away, we're helping Santa by making a list and checking it twice of which TV shows are naughty or nice.
Finally unburdened by idea of connecting with people on the other political side, comedian Sarah Silverman gleefully mocks those in conservative media in the finale of her Hulu show I Love You, America. Alongside the traditional mocking of Christians and Jesus Christ, of course. Merry Christmas, everyone!
We’re only one episode away from finishing the first season I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman, and the end can’t get here fast enough for me. Until then, we still must suffer through yet another idea Sarah Silverman deems meaningful or just politically advantageous. This week’s concept involves the frightening white nationalism of…flying the American flag.
Despite her attempts to reach across the aisle, Sarah Silverman’s Hulu show I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman rarely shows anything conservatives may enjoy. This time, we skip the pretense and find her openly campaigning for the left with her latest guest, Paul Ryan’s 2018 election opponent. At least she’s being honest now.
Marvel released the first three episodes of its latest series Runaways on Hulu on November 21, marking the premiere of their first live-action show with a teenaged cast. Unfortunately, with that premise, we are forced to deal with a few missteps in the show’s attempt to be hip and relevant.
