The War at Home (2005)
Spare me that liberal knee-jerk reaction!
I've just skimmed through some of the comments, and I just want to say: Why don't we take a break from the idea that everything needs to be liberal and politically correct? Let's be honest here: NOT EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD IS POLITICALLY CORRECT. The sooner people realize that the better.
There was no better episode this season than the one where Hillary was dating the black guy. Dad was upset - as MOST white fathers would be to learn that their daughter was involved in a bi-racial relationship. Some may slam me for saying this, but from my experience it an absolute fact that there would be, at the very least, some tension caused by this relationship in both the black and white family. The War at Home is able to take this difficult situation and add some humor to it.
The scene with the fathers talking about golfing on the public course is another key moment. OF COURSE some country clubs are discriminatory. That is simply the way it is. I know of a country club in the DC area that only allows Jewish people. Is that discriminatory? Of course it is. But it is the world we live in. Instead of getting all up in arms about it, accept it and move on.
I think this show exhibits a true microcosm of the modern society we live in. No, its not perfect, and neither is the world.
Thank you Fox for putting a good show on the air -- FINALLY!
