MarkyMark: “How blatantly MATRIARCHAL TV has gotten.”

Our dear old friend MarkyMark (not the actor/singer)  is back with more of his unique perspective on contemporary popular culture, which has apparently gotten way too friendly to the ladies. Here’s Marky:

[H]ow blatantly MATRIARCHAL TV has gotten.  I was watching the NASCAR race at Loudon, NH today … when the predictable commercials and TV show promos came on.  There was one show being promoted that, as far as I could tell, had all FEMALE characters; they were all women!  There were no main, male characters I could see in the promo.  The show was called Political Animals, and it’s on the USA Network.

Here’s an official promo picture for Political Animals.

I think Marky may need to get new glasses.

But no matter; Marky has seen all he needs to have an opinion.

When I saw the promo for it during the commercial break for my race, I was like wow, why would I even want to watch that crap?  They have some old crones starring it, one of whom is Sigourney Weaver.  Even when she was younger and more attractive, I couldn’t stand her; she was a bitch back in the day, and she’s a bitch now.  Only now that she’s an old crone, she’s even more, er, ‘charming’ than she was back when she starred in Working Girl, circa 1989.

Um, you do realize that in Working Girl she was playing a character? A character that wasn’t supposed to be charming?

Marky begins to reminisce about the good old days, before television was taken over by the Amazonian warriors of the Matriarchy.

Back in the day, USA Network had some unique shows on; they had stuff on that no one else had, which made them worth watching.  One of my favorites was Silk Stalkings, which I think originally ran on CBS, but I can’t be sure; other than sporting events, I haven’t watched network TV like CBS in ages.  Another favorite show of mine on USA Network was Pacific Blue, which was about bike cops in Santa Monica, California.  …

Then, over the years, USA Network changed; they no longer had the unique fare that had set them apart back in the 1990s. …

After seeing the promos for the new shows this fall, I don’t know; I don’t know that I’m missing anything by not having a TV at all.  I had a TV, but I gave it to Ma because I never USED the damn thing!  The things that I really want to see are available online, such as the racing.  If I want to watch QUALITY TV programs, then I can go to Hulu.com; that site has the old, classic TV shows that were, unlike today’s trash, actually worth watching.  I watched a couple of seasons of Adam-12 & Emergency! on that site-good, uplifting programming that showed men being men.  I think I might be better off getting a bike or scooter with my extra cash.  Either that, or I could start taking trips to Central & South America to meet some nice, hot women down there. 

Oh, dear.

In closing, TV, from the looks of it, has gone totally matriarchal.  They don’t even make a pretense of catering to men anymore-none!  Since there’s nothing for me to watch on there, why get a TV, let alone a cable or satellite hookup for the damn thing?!  Seriously, why bother watching it?  The races are increasingly available online; sites like Hulu & Netflix carry TV shows and movies.  To see things that appeal to me, I don’t need a TV.  No wonder why TV and the rest of the old media are dying!  Until next time…

Watching Adam-12 on your computer while muttering bitterly under your breath about the evil that is Sigourney Weaver – MGTOW activism at its finest!

Hi! 🙂

You are right, in long-running series,probably almost all of them will pass the Bechdel Test. However, I am under the impression (and maybe I am talking out of my ass here) that some series do not even pass it in any episode.

Your version of the test looks good! It would be nice to apply it, even if the results are depressing.

I don’t know much about Political Animals, but USA hired people to hand out boxes of animal crackers in Chelsea yesterday to promote it, so I’m fine with it so far.

Cassandra:

do you really want to watch some person just randomly babbling?

Well … I do read Slavey’s comments sometimes.

Summer:

I have the impression that, in some shows writers are aware of the existence of the test, and are trying to shoehorn conversations between female characters.

Yeah, the test easily falls into the Goodhart’s Law trap, where creators try to Pass The Test rather than make entertainment that actually isn’t sexist.

@Summer-I’ve seen all of Breaking Bad because I used to watch Madmen but I don’t recall any woman interaction. With Skylar it was all between her husband or her son or her boyfriend. And her sister just seemed to interact with her husband.

“Marky Mark” is truly a “dicky dick.” He thinks tv is overwhelmingly matriarchal??! I think he has taken way too many steroids and they are affecting his brain. I personally do not watch tv at all, because I have better things to do. I do hear about so many misogynistic tv shows and films. What about mtv? I guess that is matriarchal as well. Mtv proudly features uncountable misogynistic music videos. Television makes women and girls look like one dimensional cartoon characters for the most part. Ever notice mainstream Hollywood films? The lead characters are almost always all male with the female as the love interest. Hey Dorky Dork, we live in a PATRIARCHY-NOT a matriarchy!! What drugs have you been taking? And leave Ms. Weaver alone you cowardly woman hater!!
