Well, it’s been a month, but FX’s Snowfall is back to give us another pointed racial jab all the way from the 1980s. This time, it’s all of America that comes off as racist, not just cops. At least we can finally spare with the niceties.
AMC’s second season of The Terror, titled The Terror: Infamy, follows a supernatural entity stalking a community within Japanese internment camps during World War II. The “terror” therefore refers to both the evil spirit wreaking havoc on people as well as the evils of war, prejudice, and government imprisonment that actually existed during the time. Rest assured that even if the show doesn’t use that history to make “timely” comparisons to today’s border crisis, the liberal critics will.
The first season of HBO’s Euphoria has finally come to a close, and it could not come fast enough. This teen drama ranks among the worst shows of the year with its blatant sexual propaganda, and it all comes to a head with quite possibly the worst subject yet: teen abortions.
Barely a week after the premiere of Amazon’s The Boys, we’re back to the same ultra-violence, gore, and blasphemy from the same twisted minds behind AMC’s Preacher. Fortunately, this is the final season of Preacher, so unlike The Boys, this should be the last we hear from this show. Unfortunately, we still have to get through this awful season.
Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral tv adaptation is...odd. Co-created by Richard Curtis, who created the original movie, and Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), I had high hopes that this team could deliver a heartfelt, funny comedy that either left out the politics or was somewhat balanced. Instead, Republicans and conservatives are overtly insulted and mocked.
Amazon Prime’s latest series The Boys is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Garth Ennis, the same writer behind Preacher. The show is also produced by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogan, who helped to develop the Preacher television series. So is it safe to say that The Boys is just as raunchy, gory, and sacrilegiously irreverent as Preacher? Sadly, it may be much worse.
HBO’s Euphoria is easily the weirdest and grossest show of the year thanks to its depraved views of sex. Namely, the show seems to think anything goes with teenagers, whether it's taking sex pointers from porn or even statutory rape. Euphoria keeps up its gross factor with a teen dressed as a sexy nun receiving oral sex and college frat boys sexually assaulting a freshman boy in a perverted Halloween episode that aired on July 21.
In this latest season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the series has been unusually spiteful towards religious people. Of course, the premise of a religious takeover of the United States forcing women into slavery was never going to be flattering, but this year has been much harsher with Christians defacing monuments and priests being called child molesters. This week, we see a retread of the old pro-choice claim that pro-lifers and religious people treat women as “vessels” for growing babies.
Snowfall, the FX series following a fictional depiction of the crack cocaine epidemic in the Reagan years, is back for a third season, and it certainly didn’t take too long to get something wrong. True, the entire series is based on a debunked claim that the CIA was responsible for the crack epidemic in black communities, so getting facts wrong is just second nature at this point. The latest blunder comes from the idea that black cops are basically race traitors.
Into the Dark, Hulu’s monthly dark anthology show based around holidays, is mostly a mixed bag series at best. However, it has fortunately mostly kept away from politics. Unfortunately, the show takes a sudden over-dramatic turn to the left with its Fourth of July episode “Culture Shock.” Let’s just say no one’s rushing to say “God Bless America” in this show.
Watching HBO’s Euphoria is a lot like watching the recent Democratic primary debates. Each experience will slowly kill your faith in humanity. However, only one of these things includes an excruciating plot of a high school student granting sexual favors to grown men online and nearly thirty photos of erect penises. With those options, give me Beto O’Rourke speaking broken Spanish any day.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale has now gone so far left that it’s hard to make any sense of it anymore. This season’s appeals to fake refugee and child-molesting priests narratives were already bad enough, but the latest episode takes things to a new level with more bizarre anti-Christian sentiments, including a Nazi parallel. I guess nothing’s too outrageous so long as it insults a massive religion.
