Progressive TV Watching at its Best
16 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching season 2 on Netflix (saw Season 1 last year). I'm eager to see Season 3. Why? Because not only do I totally enjoy watching it, but I so admire the writers and producers of it for bringing the world a show that has a truly progressive woman as the main character. And, not only that, but it is the first show that I've seen in a really long time in which the main character has an abortion. Probably because the show is Danish and not American; in the US no women on TV have abortions, even if they get pregnant through rape or incest. In the US, getting pregnant and having babies is celebrated to such an extreme degree on TV and in movies that it's not realistic. I've gotten tired of seeing characters get pregnant, not want to be, yet have the baby anyway. Not so on Rita. Yay! Women's right to choose is still alive on TV somewhere in the world. Not only that, but Rita has the confidence and chutzpah of no other character that I can remember who's not holding a gun. I celebrate a character who dares to fight bureaucracy and that which she doesn't believe in. Bravo, Rita!
