According to my unofficial research, roughly 70% of all scripted content on TV right now is composed of either crime procedurals and zombie dramas. One show that apprently combines both genres is the CW hit "iZombie." Per the IMDB synopsis:
A medical student who becomes a zombie joins a Coroner's Office in order to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat so that she can maintain her humanity. But for every brain she eats, she also inherits their memories. Now she uses her abilities to solve their deaths with help from the Medical examiner and a police detective.
Whatever. I watch some lame-ass TV shows, so I would never judge a person based on their viewing tastes. That said, sometimes a line has to be drawn.
This is from Tuesday night's episode, entitled "Love and Basketball."
OK, first of all, the very title of this episode is an insult to the work of Omar Epps and the divine Ms. Sanaa Lathan:
More important ... Darko Milicic? How dare you slander our boy Kristaps Porznigis like that, up-and-coming New Zealand actress Rose McIver? I was forced to watch Darko Milicic as a Knick for eight whole games, ma'am, and let me tell you: Kristaps is no Darko Milicic! This cannot stand! This will not stand!
Oh, but it gets worse, apparently...
@seth_rosenthal The episode also features discussion of Melo as a ball-stopper, and Sprewell choking PJ!— Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall) November 4, 2015
I'll have you know, iZombie hacks, that Carmelo Anthony just so happens to have the second-highest assist percentage on the team right now. Stick that in your ball and stop it! And as for the Sprewell thing ... yeah, that happened. No denying that.
It boggles my mind that the CW -- home to such groundbreaking shows as "Jane the Virgin" and "Supernatural" (Jesus, that show's still on the air?) -- would attempt to poison young minds with this filth. I plan to boycott this network effective immediately! (Except for "The Flash" -- a show that is awesome and never says anything bad about Kristaps!)
