Excessive violence in films and on TV has been joined by excessive sex, much of it acted out according to porn-established norms. Even if much of this is artistic commentary, without discussion, kids begin to believe this is how sex really works.
So, in one day I heard that Harry's Law -- a show I enjoyed for its wit and intelligence as much as the fact that its lead character was a 63-year-old woman -- was being canceled, and I gave Girls on HBO one more chance. I say "ugh" to both.
What a skill! Calling out the average looks of one woman by insulting the "conventional beauty" of another. It's like a weird competition all women are participating in, where no one really knows the rules and there are no winners and everyone is sad.
