Every once in a while, there comes an episode that sheds light on how dense progressive politics can be. The latest episode of TVLand’s Younger steps up to that plate by daring to call the new LGBTQ-whatever terms “confusing.” Throw in a little mockery with a fake term and this episode could wind up getting people arrested in Canada.
Looks like victimizing women might not be enough for Dietland anymore. After several episodes wallowing in female victimhood, the AMC series appears to go intersectional by hosting the oppression Olympics in a couple of scenes this week. As usual, the real losers are the viewers.
If it isn’t obvious by now, AMC’s Preacher isn’t a fan of God, Jesus, Christianity, or anything remotely resembling decency. So it comes as no surprise that the show lets out how it feels about the Creator of the universe - verbally and physically. In another less-than-shocking twist, it requires a censor just to talk about.
AMC’s new series Dietland has been pretty adamant that women are victims in America. The show has gone so far as to excuse murder in the name of feminism, so I didn’t think the rest of the season could get any worse. However, that was before I found myself seeing violent porn on television - for a full two minutes.
Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale is becoming more bizarre by the episode, but this week is probably the peak of silliness this season. After child brides, whipping women, and denouncing campus speakers, season two now proudly presents us with voice of the Resistance, Oprah Winfrey. Houston, I think we’ve jumped the shark.
AMC’s Dietland has been a goldmine for feminist propaganda these past few weeks, and the latest episode is no exception. We’ve heard the demands from their manifesto, we’ve seen the murders they've committed against men accused of sex crimes, but now we’re listening to the main characters argue in support of their deadly use of force.
Deemed the “woke” superhero, Marvel’s Luke Cage returned June 22 on Netflix for a second season of racial issues, gun-running, drugs, corrupt politicians, and social justice. This year, however, there’s the added bonus of more Trump references. Just what every show doesn’t need nowadays!
AMC’s Preacher is back, and it looks like it’s proceeding right on schedule. Already in the season three premiere, we’re kicking things off with the return of another outrageous and offensive image of God. At this rate, we’ll probably be scraping the bottom of the barrel by the Fourth of July.
Freeform is known for having its overblown, progressive teen dramas, so Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger using the phrase “check your privilege” only mildly annoyed me. Following up with the belief that "this whole country's trying to kill [black people] every day," however, is where I would hope to draw the line.
Sooner or later, every terrorist group comes out with a list of demands. The violent, ultra-feminist group in AMC’s Dietland is no exception as they finally make their demands known in the June 18 episode “F…This.” What a surprise, it involves equal pay plus reparations.
In a story about an oppressive near-future theocratic American society where women are treated like cattle to birth babies, everything is political. This week Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale even managed to weave a contemporary #MeToo narrative into the dystopian story based on the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood.
AMC’s new series Dietland got off to a less-than-admirable start in last week's premiere with its introduction of a murderous feminist group. It looks like it’s only going downhill from there. Now the show is digging deeper by proclaiming women are perpetual victims to violent, oppressive men.
