Apparently there are two new television shows that are set to air today. Both of these shows are completely ridiculous. The first is ‘The Fosters’ which userdand noted in the comments section of another blog post. It is about an interracial lesbian couple who have taken in troubled teens. It was created by Jennifer Lopez and will be on ABC which calls itself the home of “the new kind of family”. If you are wondering exactly what “new kind of family” they mean, this television show should answer your question.
The second television show is called ‘SheZow’ and is an Australian – Canadian cartoon created for children ages 6 – 11. What is so bad about it? The cartoon is about a typical weak boy who puts on a ring and yells “you go girl!” then transforms into a female superhero. You really cannot make this stuff up. While this will be on Hub, a channel with a rather small audience, the fact that it is being aired at all is disturbing. What exactly will boys learn watching a show which depicts the boy as weak and only becomes strong when he transforms into a girl? According to the Chief Executive of Hub we are just supposed to laugh.
