I think we can all agree that television is the lighthouse we need to guide us through a troubled world, especially when we’re too drunk for church. The fact is that TV gives us hope for a better tomorrow as well as some really good ideas on how to get out stubborn tile stains.
The more time we take to reflect on past mistakes and see how we can improve, the better for the future of television. The unbearable thought of abandoning our children in front of the tube, to be assaulted by inappropriate programming, is too hard to bear. If we can’t trust young minds to be nurtured for us while we’re commuting from our important jobs as bank tellers and strippers, what kind of future will we have?

The only thing good about this show is that it delivered so much butt-hurt to social justice warriors; most of them punched themselves into submission and cried themselves to sleep during yoga. If the series hadn’t been cancelled, the streets of Los Angeles would have run blue with the blood of their hemorrhaging Smurf wounds.
Now, the second most cringe inducing television show in history…
