HBO’s The Deuce has made its views on sex perfectly clear. Namely, that sexual exploitation pays, porn can be empowering, and that our screens need to have at least one - usually many more - naked body an hour. Yet the series always manages to somehow come to a new low even after almost two years on air. The latest is the idea that most "sex workers" don't want to get out of the life.
FX’s '80s drug crime series Snowfall recently concluded a mostly uneventful second season. Still, between the cursing and the violence as warranted on the channel now, the series managed to squeeze in one last political jab for the year. Surprise, the drug war is…racist!
Every week, Sarah Silverman seems to push the limits of how many leftist spiels she can fit in thirty minutes. Her Hulu show I Love You, America once again is full of ignorant and insulting pieces aimed at conservatives. This time, the big target is Brett Kavanaugh.
Hulu’s latest original series The First, which debuted on September 14, is an interesting, non-partisan science-fiction series set in the 2030s surrounding the trials of NASA astronauts on the first mission to Mars …most of the time. Starring raving lefty lunatic Sean Penn, you might be surprised to learn the series manages to keep politics out of the main plot. Sadly, it fails to leave its liberal agenda completely behind.
Well, it took them long enough, I guess. FX’s American Horror Story: Apocalypse the 8th installment of the AHS anthology series, officially premiered last week, but at least one reviewer called it "meh" and bemoaned it "fails to conjure any real terror." This week, however, they rack up the crazy with blood, murder, a good old-fashioned BDSM gay sex scene and propaganda. No matter the premiere, the September 19 episode “The Morning After” does not bode well for the rest of the season.
If there was any doubting the political sympathies of Entertainment Weekly, the front cover of the Fall TV Preview hails the revival of the CBS hit comedy Murphy Brown, starrring Candace Bergen. It was revealing to compare how enthusiastically EW greeted the return of Murphy Brown, to how the magazine greeted the return of the comedy Last Man Standing, starring right-of-center actor Tim Allen -- with second-degree questioning of Allen's political beliefs.
Only two episodes into its return and Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America is already probably the most obnoxious show of 2018. After a lousy hate-fest last week, the Hulu series continues to promote its hatred for all things right-wing. This week is no different, except with more profane jabs at President Trump.
Fans of Chelsea Handler and Michelle Wolf should rejoice. While Netflix had the good sense to cancel those shows, Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman has somehow returned despite a horrible, terrible, no-good, very bad first season. For a show that claims to “love” America, it sure hates a good part of it.
FX’s new show Mayans MC is a spinoff of the biker drama Sons of Anarchy, which finished its seven-season run almost four years ago. That connection seems fitting as the new series covers many of the same issues, such as gruesome violence and a love for gun deaths. However, this time around, they manage to insert a new political edge. These days, what show doesn’t?
I'm a pretty big fan of the stories featuring Jack Ryan (there are more than 20 books by Tom Clancy, plus movies including Clear and Present Danger, The Hunt for Red October, and The Sum of All Fears), so I was delighted that Amazon Prime came out with a new series based on the American CIA officer called simply "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" on August 31.
It’s just like AMC’s Preacher to want to go out on a low note. We’ve had our share of gruesome violence and general blasphemy this season, so now it’s time to go political. The August 26 finale “The Light Above” seems keen to remind us that if you want to “Make America Great Again,” you’re in line with Hitler…somehow.
TVLand’s Teachers is about to wrap up its third season. What better way to celebrate that than through another leftist push? In this penultimate episode, we get one bizarre salute to the religion of climate change. The August 7 episode “Step By Stepsister” features a talent show at Fillmore Elementary School, and art teacher Ms. Cannon (Caitlin Barlow) tries to get some non-conventional students to participate.
