I think that the real reason that people stopped watching the show is that it
just isn't very good. Bad acting, bad plot, and the dialogue is pretty lame.
Despite what many think, people don't watch shows just because they are
full of sex and language and violence (there might be exceptions). I want to
watch good and interesting shows with the time that I have regardless of the
subject matter, and this show is not one of them.
I don't have cable and I have not seen the show. It is not likely I ever will.
But what really is sad is that this once great newspaper has degenerated into
little more than a ward newsletter. This is not news; it is a message from the
To me, it's reassuring to see that a television show can't rise to success
through shock value alone. Pushing against widely-held standards of decency
might get you some free publicity, but not a second season.
This article has nothing to do with the LDS Church's view on immorality. It has
everything to do with the complete degradation of society's morals. It's your
choice what kind of entertainment you choose, but I am pleasantly surprised that
people are finally rejecting this kind of smut. If viewers raise the bar for
filmmakers, maybe they will put out more good stuff. If we don't wish our
civilization to decline, we will stand up to immorality and teach our children
There is a certain budget for shows that aim to further erode our morality.
This show will stay on the air until that budget expires and then it will die,
or be transformed into a show that is less caustic.The same thing
happened with the early Hill Street Blues.Satan, and those
influenced by him, will try and try again, leaving his followers dangling in the
breeze of public opposition. Its no skin off of his non-existent nose.
Actually this article isn't very original. I've seen numerous almost identical
pieces the last couple of days in other sources. Originality is somewhat
Wandrew,I guess the bishop you mentioned in you comment was able to
convince Subway sandwiches and the other sponsors to pull their ads? That's one
very influential bishop!
I think it's funny when stories like this get bashed as being LDS stories.
There are a lot of other people with good moral standards besides members of the
LDS Church. This story proves that. I'm glad people are opting out of watching
this junk.@wandrew"But what really is sad is that this

newsletter."Don't read it if you don't like it. Pretty simple.
What kind of newsletters has this person seen?????
millerc and lib1, I wish I could be as enthusiastic as your two over
these development. However since all the coverage seems to have centered on
this show being essentially child pornography, it appears that the current
morals are applied in very limited ways. Still it is good to see
that there is a limit to how far pushing against morals works.
@wandrew, there's a reason this story is in the ENTERTAINMENT section. If you
were reading an actual paper, it obviously wouldn't be front page news, but it
is news. I've never understood those who take the time to read a
story, take extra time to write out a comment, and the comment is that the story
is "a waste of their time". It's your time, make better choices on how
you use it.
