202 Media We’re Watching: Wicked, Supergirl, The Connors & Elementary
Taking a break from our usual hate-watching, we’re talking about media we are enjoy-watching today! Media that is pushing a liberal agenda, breaking down the walls of privilege, and showing non-traditional relationships.
In This Episode
This week we have a long-ass news segment that includes Nichole’s thoughts from her recent jury duty experience; and then we delve into the media that we’ve been consuming that we feel is doing things right: The Connors bring shade to the memory of Roseanne’s bigotry, Wicked and Supergirl spreading awareness of privilege and activism, and our ultimate favorite, Elementary, that takes a deep look at the importance of community, personal accountability, and the bonds of friendship.
SPOILER ALERT!!!! for New Girl and Friends endings ;P
Joke in the Middle
