It’s Always Hazy In Nashville

by

Just so you know, I have spies every where.  I even have operatives who have infiltrated the lunatic fringe of the Religious Right.  If you ever see someone who looks visibly intoxicated at a Fred Phelps rally, he works for me.  Also, two of the members of Hootie and the Blowfish, at least one of the Pips (but not Gladys Knight) and three of the 4 Non Blondes are all working for me whether they know it or not.

Here’s an email that was forwarded to me from one of my covert agents,

Dear Sarcastro’s Spy,

The FX Network premieres another raunchy sitcom this week to continue its assault on television decency. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia promos reflect another FX show based on dysfunctional people obsessed with sex and profanity.

Clearly, FX network has a sick and twisted view of what is acceptable for family viewing on basic cable television. Its other shows like Nip Tuck, The Shield, and Rescue Me also dredge their content from the cultural gutter.

In the premiere of Always Sunny airing this Thursday night, the character Charlie disguises himself as a hippie-dressed Vietnam Veteran in a wheelchair, trying to pick up hookers at a strip club. When one of the strippers asks him what put him in the wheelchair, he screams, "Viet-G-dd–n-Nam is what happened. Go get me a beer bit-h."\n
\nIn another episode, a father, daughter and son are eating in a restaurant, when the issue turns to incest. The son yells throughout the restaurant, "I\’m not banging my sister, dad!"
\n
\nOther promos include discussions about genitalia and frequent profanity. It\’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia airs during prime-time hours when children are likely to be watching, despite its TV-MA rating for adult content.
\n
\nTake Action
\n
\nLet me know you are ready to help me carry out the "Fed Up With FX Network" campaign by agreeing to contact multiple advertisers on Nip Tuck, The Shield, Rescue Me, and It\’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia every week.
\n
\nFX Network may be able to dismiss your concerns, but they can\’t ignore advertisers who refuse to sponsor their shows.
\n
\nSign the petition letting me know you are standing with me and for our children. Our first "Fed Up With FX Network" campaign action letter will arrive in your email box this Friday morning.

I wasn’t really interested in watching this show until I read this email.   Wildmon has been on my arch-nemesis list since he tried to enact sanctions against WKRP in Cincinnati.  Over the years he has gone after Three’s Company, Charlie’s Angels and other shows.  Wildmon and his organization feel that Bill O’Reilly promotes the Gay Agenda.  Naturally, he has a reformed gay dude write an article that implies that O’Reilly is tacitly endorsing the teaching of fisting to children.   That is the kind of nuttiness we are dealing with.

Needless to say, I watched It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and loved it.  The first episode tonight dealt with being crippled and faking being crippled in order to pick up strippers.  The second episode was about how an Israeli businessman bought the neighboring building which apparently includes half of the bar the four main characters own.  The situation soon develops into a microcosm of the Intifada.

TV Squad put it thusly:
But as I mentioned before, that’s the type of show this is. It’s rude, offensive, vulgar, semi-racist, political, and unorthodox. But none of that matters because of one other thing.

It’s funny.

(Editor’s note:  A funnier and better written review of this show was originally slotted for this space.  Due to some inadvertant dumbassery, that review was deleted.  We apologize for the quality of this one but it is late and I have a headache.)

    Will having a headache help you pick up strippers?

    "Donald E. Wildmon, Chairman OneMillionMoms.com"That made me laugh so hard. Isn’t that every little patriarch’s dream, to have a million moms he gets to boss around?
