Doctors are generally believed to uphold the value of “first do no harm,” but that wasn’t the case on the latest episode of medical drama New Amsterdam which portrayed enabling a suicide as an act of mercy. Oncologist Dr. Helen Sharpe is one of the most sympathetic characters on NBC’s New Amsterdam. She shows gentleness and compassion to all her patients. But on Tuesday’s episode she secretly provided a suffering cancer patient with the medical means to take her own life.
It has been nearly two years since the last episode of USA’s Mr. Robot and I can’t think of a single person who suffered from it. After all, we’re still bombarded with shows that denounce capitalism and Donald Trump. The last thing we need is a product of NBCUniversal telling us that corporations are bad. Sadly, the latest episode of the series does just that by tying corporations and various right-wing figures to a global terrorist conspiracy.
The Ryan Murphy-produced American Horror Story has returned for a new season titled 1984, and so far, it’s been pretty tame compared to earlier seasons. Sure, the FX series still contains the usual amount of gore, sex, and vapid characters, but unlike Cult, there’s nocontinuous onslaught of outrageous liberal bias.
Smug, unfeeling suits, unconcerned by harm their products have caused — that’s how New Amsterdam portrayed medical device manufacturers in its latest episode. Construction worker Mr. Martinelli is admitted to the hospital with strange symptoms and the doctors eventually realize he is being poisoned by cobalt from his metal hip replacement device, in “Replacement” which aired Oct. 8.
The same week as the Supreme Court prepared to hear arguments about whether Title VII should include protections for LGBTQ individuals, NBC’s legal drama Bluff City Law presented arguments of its own. They just hid the agenda, initially, in absurdity. In the Oct. 7, episode, “25 Years to Life,” attorneys Sydney Strait and Anthony Little go to court on behalf of their former law professor whose petition to legally change his age from 62 to 42 has been rejected by the city.
Batwoman, featuring the first lesbian superhero lead on television, is the latest comic-book series adapted by the CW. Unfortunately, following in the footsteps of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman also is annoyingly preachy and obsessed with social justice. Even worse, it’s not even fun about it.
With the 2020 presidential election on the horizon, a recent survey has indicated that the gaps between how Republicans and Democrats view national media outlets such as CNN and Fox News continue to spread, solidifying the country’s partisan echo chambers with no change in sight.
Fictional agricultural corporation Terennial was the evil big business in the second episode of NBC’s new legal drama Bluff City Law.
A show created by noted liberal producer Ryan Murphy that’s literally called The Politician was never going to be unbiased. Predictably, we get the usual leftist fanfare along with an obnoxious and downright hypocritical takedown of the white, rich, and privileged under Donald Trump. (It’s not like Netflix has a shortage of those.)
We’ve finally come to the end of AMC’s Preacher, and what a mess it has been getting here. From stomach-churning gore to constant blasphemy to straight up portraying God as the bad guy, it’s been nonstop hatred towards a faith that inspires literally billions. And now, after four seasons, the show finally signs off with probably the most slanderous and yet most predictable sentiment of them all.
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.
