Liberal and Conservative TV

The Most Conservative and Most Liberal Shows On TV. Discuss.


I actually stopped watching 24 one season when it felt too conservative and annoying. But I heard that plot was later turned on it's head, so, shrug. I don't know if 24 is conservative so much as it is about a guy with a gun who is too busy trying to not get killed to deal with due process. I mean, David Palmer was undoubtably a democrat, and the first three seasons were all about how awesome he was.

I agree that the Sopranos shouldn't be characterized by the things its characters say but rather the feelings and judgments it evokes in its viewers. The gang's malapropisms, twisted conception of honor, and, you know, murdering and stuff, for example, clearly aren't intended to sell us on their worldview, but rather the opposite. "Here are some murderous conservative idiots and the methods by which they rationalize their monstrousness." Seems like the family stuff serves more as a delicious juxtapositional petri dish of irony than rah rah for family. And fuck anybody that thinks the conservatives own the concept of family, btw.

spankaliscious is what we're after folks, and that's what we've got in the extreme. WE think that maybe the time has come for what can only be described as chortle- a sweet confection of probabilities and corrections and black licorice that only a buntle could dislike. But then, who knows, right? Maybe buntles are all that's left...
