And So It Begins,..
The de-deitization (if its not a word, who cares,..) of TV again.
I normally don't comment much about television shows or the state of what passes for entertainment these days. For what I care, Hollywood is a leftist, festering swamp that infects our very intellect.
However, I was kinda surprised and saddened to hear that one of the few shows I actually watch, Eli Stone, has been canceled.
For those who didn't watch the show, Eli Stone was about a high-powered lawyer who began to have visions about cases involving the greater good, rather than the bottom line. At the end of last season Eli, tired of the strain, had the vision-causing aneurysm removed. This season started with Signourney Weaver indirectly playing a God-like character who persuades Eli to take on the aneurysm (cross?) again to complete his divinely-appointed task.
Wait?? God directing man to do good for mankind? Hmmm,...Sounds a bit like "Joan of Arcadia," another divinely-inspired show that lasted just long enough to catch people's attention before being canceled.
But how long did "Sex and the (Secular) City" hang around to annoy us?
On the subject of annoying entertainers, can we arrest for child abuse lip-synching "singer" Ashlee Simpson and her "beard" bassist Pete Wentz for naming their newborn "Bronx Mowgli Wentz?"
