Of all the television shows for the husband of Sarah Palin to make an appearance on, Todd Palin strangely chose TBS’s extremely liberal comedy The Detour. Produced by leftist commentator Samantha Bee and husband Jason Jones, the show was originally based on the real-life family road trips of Bee, Jones and their children, but has now devolved into vile material that Palin should have thought twice about associating himself with.
Just when you thought Hollywood couldn’t sink any lower in their depravity and twisted attempts at humor, especially when it comes to child actors, along comes Tuesday’s episode of TBS’s The Detour, “The Stop.” Which were my thoughts exactly as I watched. “Please, for the literal love of God, make it stop.”
The entertainment world has readied the battlefield for the resistance with scripted and unscripted shows.
In the wake of the recent onslaught of sexual harassment accusations against men in power, Sunday night’s episodes of TBS’s Search Party presented their own case of sexual misconduct, but with a twist: a female senatorial candidate sexually harasses a young African-American campaign staffer. In the first of tonight’s episodes, “Denial,” candidate Mary Ferguson (J. Smith-Cameron) calls campaign staffer Julian (Brandon Micheal Hall) to her office to discuss an article he wrote (correctly) calling into question the truth of a once-missing person’s abuse story. When he leaves, she interrogates him about the size of his genitals, threatening to ruin his reputation if he doesn’t answer. Watch the uncomfortable exchange here
The September 4 episode of TBS’s People of Earth “Bee Kind,” revisited their sacrilegious storyline of a Catholic priest having an affair with a married woman, and this time, they took the story to even more offensive heights.
TBS’s People of Earth, a comedy that centers around a support group of people who have been abducted by aliens, hilariously took a shot at feminist, interpretative dance art on the Monday, August 28 episode, “Aftermath.”
Liberal TV loves to bash Christianity any opportunity it gets and Monday night’s episode of TBS’s People of Earth did not disappoint. The episode, titled “Gerry’s Return,” portrayed the relationship between a married woman and a priest that became sexual at the end of last season. One of the opening scenes of the episode had Chelsea (Tracee Chimo) enter the confessional to tell Father Doug (Oscar Nuñez) that she misses him. She flirts with him through the screen, saying she’s having “impure thoughts.” The two plan a rendezvous before Father Doug tells her to “Go in peace, my child” and “make reservations.
A quick check of the Newsbusters archives reveals that Samantha Bee is one of the more notorious Trump haters in the media. Therefore it was amusing to watch the TBS host of Full Frontal go into a state of shock on her August 2 show in a segment where she traveled to Kurdistan in northern Iraq and discovered that (GASP!) the Kurds love President Donald Trump.
TBS’s Wrecked is comical parody of the show Lost, known for its outlandish storylines and it’s one of my favorite shows on television right now. But Tuesday, July 11’s episode, “Tony Pepperoni,” went too far by making light of a very serious topic - abortion.
In a commercial promoting an upcoming showing of the movie Olympus Has Fallen, centered around the plot of North Korean terrorists violently seizing control of the White House and holding the President of the United States hostage, cable channel TBS edited clips of the film to make it seem like fictitious national security officials were relieved and thrilled by that prospect. A not-so-subtle reference to the current occupant of the Oval Office, Donald Trump.
TBS's Samantha Bee unleashed against her longstanding nemesis, the Catholic Church, during a segment on Wednesday's Full Frontal. Bee zeroed on the Church's opposition to a proposed "child victims act," and contended that "if you're an institution that has hurt so many children that paying out civil settlements would make you go bankrupt, maybe you should?" The left-wing "comedian" added, "Anyway, it's fine. It won't. You're sitting on more treasure than Smaug the Dragon [a character in "The Hobbit"], so pay up."
We got to bid farewell to season two of TBS’s The Detour in the April 25 double episode, the latter being a supersized, limited commercial season finale. But if you thought this was the last of the ongoing attacks on Christianity and family values, you’d be wrong.
