On the ninth day of the sixth month, in the year of our Lord Two Thousand Twenty-Two, the American House of Representatives convened a television show about a political protest some years earlier. The clips from this show will be used as “facts” for elections in 2022 and 2024. These clips will be used by Democrat campaigns, of course, but more to the point, they will be used by the state-run media to condition voters and vote managers. The more people in on the next steal, the less work each plotter involved must do.
I cannot rate the show very highly. It has terrible pacing and features weak performances from the usual crew of identical new faces who for some reason keep showing up on our screens. It wasn’t like this in the old days. It used to be that a show needed some strong performances and tight writing to get popular. There was a kind of platinum age of television heralded by the beloved but now-unwatchable “Babylon 5,” which was a watershed in long-arc, multi-season plotting of a broadcast series. Shows followed in different genres: “The Sopranos,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Dexter,” “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad,” “Better Call Saul.” This current offering from the House is poorly done. It’s amazing it got greenlit.
I never watched the Sopranos until these days. I’m midway through the fourth Season.Published in
