TV HAS GONE TOO FAR
This show is not on pay per view, and it is, thank goodness, not on in prime time. Still it is so far out that I believe any company that sponsors it should be boycotted.
One of the characters in this show is Hispanic. He speaks with an accent and when he gets angry he reverts to his home language. His accent and his tirades (stereotypical of Hispanics) are a constant butt of what this show thinks is humorous.
This man’s wife, a stay at home mom to one small child, is forever buying clothes and trying to hide them from the overbearing Latin husband. The plot line for every show I have seen so far has been her cute plans to spend money without the husband finding out. The plans always backfire, and the husband always blows his Latin stack.
It seems every plot follows this misogynistic story line.
The misogynist attitude is offensive enough, but these cretins drink hard liquor and smoke cigarettes INSIDE a small apartment, often in front of their child.
Somehow I still watched this show as it did provide some guilty laughs, but today’s episode was the final straw. The stay at home mom gets caught buying expensive clothes and her husband gets so enraged that he takes her over his knee and gives her a spanking. All of this, mind you, with a backdrop of hysterical canned laughter. I do not see anything funny about physically humiliating and abusing a woman and will no longer watch this show.
I implore everyone, if you come across this show, please do not watch,
“I Love Lucy!”
