At one time Boston Legal was one of my favorite TV shows.Â It was funny and outrageous.Â Unfortunately, it has gone the way of most shows that last beyond a few years.Â The storylines are getting more and more absurd, and apparently they no longer are happy with their “progressive-friendly” scripts.Â Now they simply MUST have scripts that preach theirÂ anti-conservative and anti-religion biases and intolerance.Â
Last night’s show, in particular, was a constant barage of derision and disdain for conservatives and for religion.Â It has stopped amazing me atÂ the extent of intoleranceÂ the “progressives” can display toward anyone who doesn’t agree with them.Â Â Their “accept everyone as they are” mantra only applies to other progressives – and certainly not towards conservatives or Christians.
If past blogging history is any indication and this post receives comments from the progressive side, they will most likely be laced with profanity and personal attacks and charges.Â Â To progressives, conservatives are the “other America” that Denny and Alan discussed with so much disdain in last night’s show.Â The “other America” that doesn’t believe in giving people equal rights and the “other America that elected a president.”Â AndÂ I have yet to hear a progressive admit or evenÂ recognize that such a discussion is the epitomy of intolerance and stereotyping.
In last night’s episode, Denise told Brad that he was the father of the child she is carrying.Â Immediately they put Brad in the dunce category as he started talking about getting schoolsÂ lined up for the baby – “It’s never too early.”Â
Then Denise told him she hadn’t decided definitely about continuing the pregnancy.Â So now it looks like that storyline will be one in which Brad will be portrayed as anÂ idiot male trying to exert his “father’s rights” while Denise will be portrayed as the brave and liberated woman guarding her “right to decide.”
I wish that “entertainment” shows would stick to entertainment – and leave the political commentary to the political shows.
