A room with a View
That vagina monologue crap fest "The View" is on my radar these days. But only because one of my favorite actresses got a gig there and is afraid that she will be ripped apart. So much so that she went on Social Media to ask for support from normal people when the Social Justice Warriors start to swarm.
Candace Cameron Bure is starting on the show as a co-host. Now I don't follow her because of her old sitcom "Full House" but because of her Hallmark Channel Movies. The thing is that TV has become so horrible that I can't watch most episodic TV shows anymore.
I am a big fan of TV. Much more so than movies. But every TV show has become devoted to gore and serial killers. You can't even watch a stupid fun show like "Hawaii 5 O" without them showing a burned corpse or a woman with a screw driver stuck in her eye. Look if you are watching an FX show about motorcycle gangs you expect a certain level of carnage. But if I am watching a show about Fireman in Chicago you don't want one of the regular characters to be abducted, tortured, raped and murdered. So I canceled HBO, Showtime and all of the movie channels. George Rape Rape Martin can peddle his wares elsewhere. What can be acceptable in a novel sort of bugs you when you see it on TV. If you have seen one incestuous rape you have seen them all. Now it is wholesome family entertainment for me.
Hallmark has a formula. There is always one of two situations. Either there is a single mom with kids who meets a fireman or a policeman or a ball player. Or it is a career gal with a high powered job in media or law who meets a widower with cute kids. Or a dog. They meet. Are attracted to each other. There is some problem that keeps them apart. But they get together in the last reel and everybody lives happy ever after.
Now the stars of these movies are always one of four women. Lori Loughlin. Alison Sweeney. Lacey Chabert. Or Candace Cameron Bure. One of them is in every one of these movies. It is familar as your bedroom slippers. Very soothing after a long day of nonsense to lay on the couch and watch one of these shows. So I don't want one of my favorite nice little actresses get brutalized by Whoopie or Rosie O'Donnell or Joyless Behar or Rosie Illegal Perez or whatever commie battle-ax they have running that crapapalooza.
Luckily it looks like "The View" is on the express track to get canceled. Last week they savaged a nurse who was a finalist in the Miss America contest who wore scrubs and talked about helping Alzhemier patients. There was a firestorm and several sponsors dropped them including some big time money. They are scrambling to do damage control but so far it is not working. So it looks like they are on the road to cancellation city.
Hey maybe they can replace them with reruns of some Hallmark Movies.
I think I am turning into a chick in my old age.
GET OFF OF MY LAWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
