We watch almost no contemporary American TV. And if we do, we’re shocked. Really, the quality just isn’t there.
And the main reason it’s so bad is, they keep plugging their politics into the story.
We watched an award-winning episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Because of their fetish for “diversity,” and their mania for preaching it at the audience, almost every scene was crowded and tedious, as each and every group in New York City had to be represented at all times. This was supposed to be the cream of the crop. I can’t imagine what the bad episodes were like.
If you want to give a speech, give a speech. If you want to preach a sermon, preach a sermon.
And if you’ve got a story to tell, for heaven’s sake, just tell it.
