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.

I try to avoid most TV dreck...it is almost universally just one leftist self-gratification episode after another...so...not surprised...and really I don't care they can keep doubling-down with the hatred and see how all that works out for them in the end...

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.
