TV HAS GONE TOO FAR
TV HAS GONE TOO FAR
I am not a
prudish man; far from it, and yet I have been watching a TV show that is so far
out, so offensive that even I, a lover of “House Wives of New Jersey” and “Here
Comes Honey Boo Boo,” am offended beyond words…almost.
This show is
not on pay per view, and it is, thank goodness, not on in prime time.Still it is so far out that I believe any
company that sponsors it should be boycotted.
One of the
characters in this show is Hispanic.He
speaks with an accent and when he gets angry he reverts to his home
language.His accent and his tirades
(stereotypical of Hispanics) are a constant butt of what this show thinks is
wife, a stay at home mom to one small child, is forever buying clothes and
trying to hide them from the overbearing Latin husband.The plot line for every show I have seen so
far has been her cute plans to spend money without the husband finding out. The
plans always backfire, and the husband always blows his Latin stack.
It seems every
plot follows this misogynistic story line.
misogynist attitude is offensive enough, but these cretins drink hard liquor
and smoke cigarettes INSIDE a small apartment, often in front of their child.
still watched this show as it did provide some guilty laughs, but today’s
episode was the final straw.The stay at
home mom gets caught buying expensive clothes and her husband gets so enraged
that he takes her over his knee and gives her a spanking.All of this, mind you, with a backdrop of hysterical
canned laughter.I do not see anything
funny about physically humiliating and abusing a woman and will no longer watch
everyone, if you come across this show, please do not watch,
