Bleeding Hearts Delight
12 June 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show started out with some fairly good episodes. But it quickly slid into series of boring episodes where the people who put this show together, including Edward Asner. Aired their politics, with thinly veiled episodes, where the watcher is lectured on evil war monger, or destroyers of the environment, some other cause. This wouldn't be so bad if they came even close to using factual information. A lot of the arguments they made on this show could not stand up to scrutiny. If your hearts bleeds for every loser you see, or find yourself going AWWWW! a lot during Ophra or Dr Phil, this is the show for you. Hated it when it was new, still hate it.
