Did anyone else catch the completely bizarre, over-the-top reaction of Elizabeth Hasselbeck and the new host Sherri something on The View
? Now, I can understand being a bit startled by the frankness and the explicit sex in the show, but these chicks were aghast. They were talking about how inappropriate it was, and (gasp!) "What about the children." Whoopi (god bless her) pointed out that it is on a pay cable channel and that people with kids should not get to dictate what the rest of us get to see. She reminded the two hosts with young kids that it is their responsibility to control what their children watch. Elizabeth acted like it was straight porn and shouldn't be on any form of television. It was as if there was no dialogue or context at all.
I hadn't yet seen the show, so I braced mysfelf and watched it. What I found was a thoughtful, sometimes painfully honest, look at couples in various stages of coupledom. I was so disappointed that of four adult women on The View not one of them mentioned the incredible subject matter or the assemblage of actors.
I know critics have picked up on the show's bleak mood, but for me, that hasn't translated to "bad series" line of thinking. Have I been deluding myself?
, you haven't.
