So much for Hawaii Five-O
« on: February 04, 2019, 06:24:43 AM »
They went full SWJ this week.  They seemed to be the one show that's resisted politics, pretty much, even being pro military, but wow, completely into the toilet, Friday, with anti-Christian and "OMG Nazis are going to get us!" all rolled up into one show.  My wife isn't even political and she looked and me and declared the show awful.  And we're not the only ones.

They usually get 7.0 to 8.5.  A 4.9, and they're getting roasted in the reviews.

/sigh

As far as I'm concerned, it had already gone SJW with a Latino Magnum and a female Higgins, so I'm not surprised the story-lines followed.  We watched part of the first episode and then clicked away.

I tried watching  Designated Survivor. I only made to 2 episodes.
After the attack which wiped out almost all of the cabinet, congress, SCOTUS, president, VP, etc....
2 white racist cops stop Kumar/Kal Penn because he has brown skin
Neighbors give him a mean look
A white racist MI governor rounds up Muslims just because
White racist MI cops are mean to some 17 year old muslim teenager so the US president gets personally involved. 

Who writes this crap? Maggie Q looked like she played a good role but .... She was in Deception with Hugh Jackman, one of my favorites.

As for good TV recommendations. I loved The Americans on Amazon Prime.  Recently, the one season Homecoming was real good, but you have to pay close attention. I watched the series twice because I missed little parts.  The Good Wife on Amazon Prime was really good. Not liberal IMO. They had 3 episodes dealing with FISA courts and US govt spying that were almost funny. Michael J Fox played a slimmy lawyer.

D'oh!

Ya know, so many of the shows feature that same SJW crap, it's easy to get mixed up.  (That's my story an' I'm stickin' tuit.)

Never really watched 'Five-O'.

Sounds like they need a nice Hawaiian Punch . . .

I was really confused because they really did have a Latino replacement for Grace Park.  There must be a different, but similar show.

When they killed off McGarret's Seal Team leader, you knew the end was near.

Me and the wife both like Californication.  Duchovney's character is an open libertarian.  He hates anything political.  It's very R rated but the banter makes me laugh out loud, something I don't do very often, anymore.

Sums it up pretty well.

My wife watches quite a few cooking shows. Even though she never cooks anything from them.

Heh.  Sometimes I'll watch a travel show...even though I never go anywhere.

Stuff like this was never intended to be watchable...it's just more and more progreSSive drivel...when even the saps who suck daily at the teat of their ideology begin to lose interest and their numbers tank...their answer is always more of the same BS.  It really won't fade away until people hired for it realize what a dead-end it is for their career and the show can no longer get anybody to be on it.  And then like locusts they merely go to another host with the same agenda and it is destroyed.  Rinse/Repeat until nothing exists.

I used to like Law and Order. IMO it was not SJW back when. Anytime they had a SJW plot the real killer turned out to be someone else.

I recently watched a Law and order SVU episode. It sucked. The writing was worse and they added all sorts of bigger, badder, more cops scenes with more action.

The Law and Order Criminal Intent guy was in a movie, Happy Accidents. Even crazier than in the show. I liked it but it was an outlier. Weird. Best if watched to the very end.

The only TV shows I ever really liked were Rockford Files and Wiseguy, long ago. In recent years I loved The Americans and The Good Wife (TV series). The Good Wife had some old Law and Order actors on occasion. Justified, Breaking Bad comes to time mind as good. Amazon Prime has some good shows.

My fav part of Hawaii 50 was the music.

The long awaited (25+ years) 3rd season of Twin Peaks didn't disappoint me.  Except the Log Lady dying in real life, and it was written into the show.  Emphasis still on characters and weirdness in general, and zero politics.

Justified started out good, then seemed to lose itself...and me.

Twin Peaks was twisted but the quirky characters were a treat...it was so much better than the boilerplate sit-coms and cop & doc dramas.

It's why I am looking forward to GOT starting up again...decent entertainment is so rare in these latter days...
