Why does the media hate women?
16 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews


I am so sick and tired of the scapegoating of women in the media in general. This episode is a prime example of it.

They make the girl kill her father for money? What? It makes no sense. She was already living a good life. What exactly was she going to do? What?

The female motivations in this show really make no sense.

In the same ep, Danno's mother complains that her husband IGNORES HER. So what does Danno do? Set up a date between them, where his father TELLS HER THAT HE VALUES HIS JOB MORE THAN HER! And what, she randomly gets back with him??? WHAT??? #$%&*#@$%^&#@!

This show seems to be written by only men. And in these sick twisted writers minds women LIKE being insulted and told they are garbage, and to SHUT THEIR MOUTHS, and that EVERYTHING IS THEIR FAULT. WOW.

POINT BLANK Danno's father told his soon to be ex wife that he values his job more than her. NOT ONCE did he talk about why he ignored her, or even this show is so sexist against women.

The worst was the labeling of the TEEN girl at the end as pure You know, there are MEN AND WOMEN that are THIS WAY. Funny how they always PLACE BLAME on the WOMEN!!!!

Also ALL women have to be trim, half naked, & on full display in H50. But then men; no. They are basically always dressed and a good number of them are fat, or even morbidly obese...sexist much? Sure there are some scenes where men are shown half naked, but these are few and far between. Sex sells but do they not know that half the world's population likes to look at half naked men instead of women? Where are the overweight women? No where to be found, more sexism and double standards.

Can we stop catering to sexist men? This show used to be at least watchable. But it has take a turn for the worst. They are turning to desperate measures as objectifying women and being sexist in general. What about plot, story, character development? No, these all take a back seat to half naked teen girls. When will the media grow up?

No wonder this show was left to die on Friday nights....yet they still are going down the same path EVEN THOUGH the few fans this show has are calling how more ignorant can you get?
