Well, we can’t say we weren’t warned. After the truly awful premiere of HBO’s drug-fueled, underage sex series Euphoria, star Zendaya stated as a preview for the rest of the season, “Let’s just say like, the first episode is the most mild, to be honest.” The June 23 episode “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy” proves her right with a long-awaited scene featuring more than a dozen penises.
Truly, we’ve hit another new low on television. In just the first hour of HBO’s latest series Euphoria, we have rampant graphic underage sex and drug use, a bizarre defense of minors sending nude photos, and the statutory rape of a trans teenager. Somehow, I ended up longing for the simple porn set-up of The Deuce - at least that show is about adults.
We’re all perfectly aware that Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale doesn’t like Christianity. Why else would it paint the religion as a part of a theological dictatorship where women are treated like cattle, child brides are legal and men beat their wives? After all, it’s not like the show’s going to acknowledge those are very real things in the Islamic world today. Instead, we get a moment trashing Catholic priests and Christians right before taking part in a baptism in the latest episode.
Tuesday, June 11 marked the beginning of another season of Pose on FX and the flood of LGBTQ+ activism that comes with it. By now, the constants cries about homophobia and racism should come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with this show based in New York in the late '80s and early '90s.
ABC’s Designated Survivor almost faced cancellation last year until Netflix surprisingly saved the series. Considering the show already featured awful jabs at Republicans and America’s “gun problem” when it was on network television, pushing it to a streaming site with less restrictions meant nothing but trouble. Sure enough, Designated Survivor is not only worse than before but one of the most social justice-pandering, politically-slanted, overly-vulgar shows of the summer.
The left’s favorite #Resistance series has unfortunately returned. Hulu’s fictional dystopian series The Handmaid’s Tale is now on its third season, and it doesn’t look like it’ll lighten up anytime soon. Case in point the series premiere not only continues the infernal feminist propaganda but also adds a refugee and illegal immigration allegory.
Amazon has hopped on the “let’s smear Christianity” train with the release of its latest series Good Omens. Based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the series follows an unexpected friendship between an angel named Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and a demon named Crowley (David Tennant) as they attempt to prevent the end times. Together, they defy their respective sides to find and, if necessary, kill the Antichrist, an eleven-year-old boy named Adam (Sam Taylor Buck). Needless to say, this doesn’t follow the spirit of the Bible.
Syfy’s gruesome series Happy! is finally ending its second season. This seems like a perfect time to remind everyone how much it hates Christianity. There have already been jabs at “bringing sexy back” to Easter with an evil “Make Easter Great Again” plan, so the bar is already low. Somehow it gets worse with the assertion that God is simply an imaginary friend and prayers do nothing.
Detective Armando Cruz (Armando Riesco) is known by fellow Detective Alice Toussaint (Crystal Ann Dickinson) as having a “bleeding heart for black men,” and in May 26’s episode of Showtime's The Chi, “Blind Eye,” viewers gain a glimpse as to why.
Ever heard of the phrase “guns don’t kill people, people kill people?” Apparently, the new version of The Twilight Zone doesn’t believe the maxim is true. The CBS All-Access reboot introduces the crazy idea that guns can shoot themselves, and that we somehow value them more than people.
Amazon’s Fleabag is, as described by the Guardian, a sitcom “about terrible people and broken lives.” Somehow, that premise was enough for it get a second season that was released May 17. Even worse, it was apparently enough of an excuse to bring a priest down to its shoddy level.
CBS All-Access has officially turned The Twilight Zone from an iconic morality series into just another Hollywood vehicle for virtue signaling and social justice pandering. The reboot whined about toxic masculinity, warned about cops killing black people, and mocked Trump through a kid president. With this latest episode on illegal immigration, the once original show might as well be an MSNBC segment.
