Just a quick hit before I collapse tonight. After some family YouTube viewing, I went to the Charter.net website (home page for our cable company) and was shown an ad offering the viewer a chance to “Sample the Best of SHOWTIME” — “Showtime” being the cable television network. The ad was pressing their current “big hit” original series. What was listed?
- The Tudors: Sexually graphic program about a “rockstar of his age” Henry VIII. (Previous mentions here and here.)
- Dexter: Our hero? A charming, sociopathic, serial killer.
- Weeds: A housewife who deals marijuana to make ends meet.
- Californication: Uh… Do I have to describe this one, too?
Apparently, if you are interested in finding comrades “who rejoice in doing evil, and delight in the perversity of the wicked” (Proverbs 10:14), then Showtime has you covered.
I think I will be skipping the “Best of Showtime”.
