HBO’s The New Pope is still attempting to prove itself just as bad if not worse than its predecessor series The Young Pope. To do that, the show proceeds to show us how the cardinals and priests ruin lives and are generally terrible people. This time around, they push a woman into prostitution and cause a nun protest. There’s apparently nothing terrible that isn’t caused by someone religious.
Star Trek has always been a little political, but lately the long-running science-fiction franchise has suffered from social justice wokeness and Trump derangement syndrome. Unfortunately, it seems like the latest series Star Trek: Picard will take the same route as it questions the “moral authority” of once iconic institutions. Not even Patrick Stewart’s return as Picard can save the political spiral.
We’ve seen how little Freeform’s Party of Five thinks about U.S. immigration laws, but it turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg. Apparently, the 2020 reboot also doesn’t think highly of rich white people either. What a predictable development for this blatantly political show.
After everything we’ve seen from The Young Pope, the only way HBO’s follow-up The New Pope would stand out is if it tried to be reverent. Unfortunately, even after two episodes, it’s clear that we’re just going back to the same pattern of being obscene and insulting the Church. The “Second Episode” proves that with more nudity and a jab on how the Church “loves.”
In the Trump era, TV and liberal media always seem to want to talk about immigration. Of course, they never seem to know the difference between legal and illegal immigration, so it usually comes off as nothing more than bashing Trump and border laws. Based on the Epic Magazine collection of stories with the same name, the Apple TV+ series Little America is sadly another example of a show being political at the expense of good characters.
It’s 2020 and liberal television still thinks it’s a big deal to have a character be gay. It’s so important that characters outing their superhero alter egos on television is also a big deal. CW’s Batwoman goes the extra mile by “outing” Batwoman as a lesbian in the universe of the show. Apparently, that’s the latest milestone for the LGBTQ community.
From the pilot alone, it’s clear that Freeform’s Party of Five reboot supports illegal immigration. From the third episode, it’s clear that the show also supports pretty much every other crime to cover for illegal immigration. At this point, it’s a wonder if any liberals support border laws at all.
Not wanting to be outdone by Netflix, HBO presents its own anti-religious series in The New Pope. This companion series to HBO’s previous blasphemous, slanderous, and all-around unpleasant series The Young Pope is set to make up for the nearly three-year absence of terribleness. If the "First Episode" is any indication, we’re only getting started.
If there’s a single show to represent how awful liberal bias can get, it’s Freeform’s Party of Five. First off, the show is a reboot of a popular series that no one wanted. Second, it’s used as a blatant excuse to shove in a forced illegal immigration agenda. Third, and most importantly, it’s not even that good. TV in 2020 can’t get much worse than this.
2020 is shaping up to be worse than 2019 if Netflix has anything to say about it. After releasing a gory fantasy just days before Christmas, Netflix kicked off the New Year with its religious drama Messiah. Let's just say the violence may have been preferable compared to this.
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.
Apparently, Hulu thinks we need to start 2020 knowing that “gay slasher movie” is now a genre. The Los Angeles Times reported that Hulu "specifically wanted a gay slasher movie," so the streaming site’s Into the Dark horror anthology series celebrates the New Year with what is described as "gleefully remix[ing] familiar genre tropes with distinctly gay subject matter." Already the new decade is going downhill.
