What could possibly go wrong with a cute, lighthearted musical comedy that on the surface looks to be a fun show? When I saw the first trailers for Apple TV+’s Schmigadoon, I was really excited to check it out. But, knowing how Hollywood is, I tweeted that I’d hoped it wouldn’t be spoiled with liberal politics.
Freeform’s “sitcom” grown-ish aired the second of their two-part BLM-themed episodes on Thursday, and it was just as awful as the first. This time they focused on woke (whack?) terms such as “white fragility,” continued to depict the police as brutal bullies out to hurt black people, and justified and made light of looting, rioting and arson.
When we left off with the creepy and perverted new Gossip Girl reboot on HBO Max last week, we, unfortunately, had the displeasure of seeing a teacher, Rafa Caparros (Jason Gotay), give into having gay sex with his male student, Max (Thomas Doherty), something that was completely unjustifiable despite Max claiming to be “of age.” This Thursday, in the opening of the episode, “Hope Sinks” (if you had any hope that the show couldn’t go any lower, those hopes will be sunk), we were forced to see Max giving his teacher oral sex in a classroom next to the American flag as students and teachers walk by just outside the open door.
Well, it was only a matter of time before an -ish series went there. “There” being a Black Lives Matter storyline on Freeform’s grown-ish (a spinoff of the racist ABC show black-ish) depicting cops as racist predators in a system that is “determined to destroy” innocent black people who have “targets on (their) backs.” There was also some racism towards white people thrown in, just for fun, as one character states, “white people are inherently bad.” And even a serious line about how hurricanes “statistically target black neighborhoods.” Yes, really.
We’re only four episodes into HBO Max’s Gossip Girl reboot and already we have witnessed the graphic sexualization of teenagers. Thanks to episode four, “Fire Walks With Z,” which became available to stream on Thursday, we can now add gay teacher giving into his lust for his male student and having sex with him.
It’s only the second episode of HBO Max’s Gossip Girl reboot, but the show is continuing full steam ahead on depicting inappropriate, sexualization of underage characters for their teen audience. This time, the worst scene takes place at a gay bathhouse where two naked, male teens students make out in front of their gay, male teacher to try to make him jealous so he’ll sleep with one of them.
When the original Gossip Girl series aired on The CW from 2007-2012, it caused a lot of controversy for its depictions of teen sex. But those scenes have nothing on the graphic sexualization of teen characters shown in the new Gossip Girl reboot on HBO Max which, along with a newfound wokeness, we're told is essential for realism.
They’re back! Unfortunately.
TBS’s God-bashing comedy anthology Miracle Workers debuted their latest season, this one set on the Oregon Trail back in 1844, on Tuesday. If you were hoping they couldn’t possibly find a way to blaspheme Christians and God in such a setting, as they did in the first season which took place in Heaven, you’d be very wrong. And it’s the reverend (because, of course) who delivers the worst line of all, calling God a “sick son of a bitch.”
Hello, Upper East Sider, Pedophiles! Do I have a scoop for you! The reboot of The CW’s iconic hit Gossip Girl premiered on HBO Max July 8, and if you thought the original had plenty of underage kiddie porn, you’re in for a treat with the new version! Yes, it’s HBO Max, where sex, drugs and foul language reign supreme, and, lest we forget, these characters are….children! But we wouldn't want them to grow up to "abuse" "power and influence" like Brett Kavanaugh, now, would we?
As America’s birthday was celebrated on the 4th of July, The CW’s liberal, racial sports drama All American aired an episode the following day that was racially divisive and celebrated liberal politicians and activists for “saving [America] from itself.” It’s shows like these that separate us rather than bringing us together as citizens of this great, free country, no matter our race.
