Well the new season line-up is now in full swing so hubby and I hunkered down in front of the telly and had a boo. There was a lot of new sit-coms/dramas and of course the ever popular (depending who you talk to) real life shows or reality shows (personally I think they get a LITTLE coaching on the side as how to be "natural")
The first show we watched was about two young ladies from different stations in life and that now were both penniless. One girl is from a former rich-girl-world but finds herself with an empty wallet cause her daddy is now serving time for making all those millions in a not-so-nice- way. The other girl is also penniless but only because of her lowly station in life. Both are brought together due to the fact they both work in the same place. Sounds like it has some merit so we watched. That was the one and only episode that was going to get our time from this show as there was so much sexual inuendos and some comments that were just in poor taste.
I know what some of you are thinking (I'm a mother/grand-mother so I can read your minds). "Lighten up! It's only a show! It's comedy/drama etc so they have to talk and act like that and you're just being a prude." OK, how about the shows from the past? Were there no comedies, dramas and movies? Mmmmm.....let me think...Oh, yeah, the comedies/dramas I watched were REALLY funny AND entertaining and they did it without bad language, smutty "jokes", or really gory scenes. Soooo....is there no talent in the Hollywood Land anymore? Seems to me that mostly the only "jokes" now are sexual in content. Here's another thing. Women in shows now have to wear seductive clothing. How about the actress's real talent? Is it because men don't think we're good enough at acting? Or is it because men are still running the show? Do we as women not have any say in how we dress or act in a show? Let's keep in mind of the blood, sweat and tears that our mother's, grand-mothers, great-grand-mothers and beyond shed for us to win our rights to vote, work (outside our homes) and many other freedoms they worked tirelessly for us. We still have rights but we do nothing about it!
OK, I digressed! But really, is there no real, true talent in La-la Land anymore? I DARE the Hollywoods to produce a comedy/drama etc without any profane language,sexually explicit anything, provocative clothing on either men, women or children or gory sceens. Can it be done?! Let's see how smart and talented the Hollywoods really are shall we?
