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.
Well, TBS’s The Detour is at it again. The April 18th episode, “The Trip,” continued the show’s utter contempt for anything to do with Christianity or Christian values. With other issues, the show has done a hit and run, keeping the mockery to one episode and then moving on to other targets.
Tuesday night’s episode of TBS’s comedy The Detour, “The Dilemma,” featured quite a few dilemmas for main characters Nate (Jason Jones) and Robin (Natalie Zea). But one dilemma in particular ended up being a breeze…how to find someone to participate in a threesome.
Sometimes things that are intended to be mean-spirited instead create results that are so positive they are nothing short of amazing. That's the case with Kyle Coddington, who was mocked as having “Nazi hair” by Samantha Bee -- liberal host of the Full Frontal program on the TBS cable television channel -- in a segment about people attending the recent Conservative Political Action Conference.
The third episode of the second season of TBS’s The Detour, which aired February 28, contained bizarre racial tensions and was just downright disgusting. When main character Nate (Jason Jones) notes the abnormality of a friend, Judith, being 12 months pregnant, she spits back at him, “Straight, white, male doctors. What do they know?” Nate responds, “Same thing as gay, black, women doctors.” While this seems like a weird claim to disagree with, the African-American couple in the group has a disgusted look on their face. Considering Nate is shown as the belligerent loudmouth of the gang, I wonder what point the writers are trying to make.
The White House Correspondents' Dinner slated to be held in Washington, D.C., on April 29 will face a “counter-event” hosted by Samantha Bee, the foul-mouthed host of the Full Frontal weekly program on TBS.
Entitled “Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner,” the “alternative gala” was announced on Monday by Bee, who was a correspondent on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show before getting her own program in February.
For all those who loathe the vapid lives of self-obsessed 20-somethings… you are not in luck with TBS’s new dark comedy Search Party. While I admire the show for attempting to take a “satirical” turn on Millennials in a serious situation, Search Party seems to greatly overestimate our tolerance for these kinds of people.
