Why do we all still love the 'I Love Lucy' show? Because he had his role and she had her role. A bit extreme yes, but there were differences in their roles and without political correctness too. Simple as that. This is why TV today SUCKS. There's no contrast between the sexes. Females DOMINATE leading roles and actions and men are always weak, subservient, clueless and never allowed to trump the female; GIRL POWER, even in the most mundane commercials. This reverse role crap IS NOT NATURAL and that's why TV sucks; EVERYTHING'S CONTRIVED FOR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS' SAKE AND DOES NOT FOLLOW NATURE AS ORDAINED BY GOD!!
TV shows (and ads) pretty much follow the same pattern these days:
1. The white heterosexual male is a blithering idiot; the pee-on. Hes good for involuntarily funding a society that hates his existence, though.
2. The person in charge is usually a woman or minority or a female minority combo package. The mom rules the roost; the dad is there to be the butt of jokes and ignored, except when mom wants to go buy shoes or the kids want $omething.
3. The token gay character represents the conscience/moral authority (what a f*cking joke) of the situation/show.
