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.
This won't be much of a loss to conservative audiences, but Hulu's Casual just dropped its last 8 episodes on Tuesday. This new run of episodes was pretty much more of the same liberalism but with one twist - season four takes place a few years after season three, with creators saying that puts it at around 2022 or so.
Showtime’s Who Is America continues to document Sacha Baron Cohen’s appalling targeting of conservative figures disguised as entertainment. Of course, the result is not entertaining in the slightest which explains why hardly anybody watches it. The latest episode follows the downward spiral by lumping in Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the golden shower tapes.
Season one of AMC’s Dietland finally draws to a close, and what a journey it’s been. Starting from a feminist group murdering for the #MeToo movement, to playing the oppression Olympics, the show is truly the pinnacle of third-wave feminism. To prove that, we leave off on the personal targeting of pro-life members of Congress.
AMC’s Preacher is no stranger to controversy obviously, but the worst of the worst usually comes from the original graphic novel. The fact that the show feels confident enough to bring it to screen says more about our society than anything I could type. The latest casualty this week is the Pope.
The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want homeowners armed is even scarier.
In a time when the phrase “Fake News” is bandied about on a daily basis, it would make sense for reporters to check, double check and even triple check the information in any article. That advice apparently fell on deaf ears when Emily Singer, a senior political reporter for the liberal Mic website, went ahead with an item claiming President Trump had met with Russian operative Maria Butina in the Oval Office.
If anyone else was tired of the cliché oppression games of last week’s episode, we’re in luck. This week, we jump back into the pure “hating men” narrative of AMC’s Dietland. Because in the world of Dietland, that’s all that matters. That and, apparently, dissing Trump.
