Via the same impulse that makes us look at gruesome wrecks on the highway, I watched the first episode of this thing last week, and I’ve never seen anything on TV quite so repulsive. Its total awfulness is kind of an achievement.

This is the network that gave you, Outsourced, a "comedy" about shipping jobs to India that outraged people all across the political spectrum and still managed to last a whole season. Do you really expect them to act any differently now?

There is so much homosexual propaganda on TV these days. But no matter how hard they try, it still won’t be normal.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

it is not enough for it to be cancelled.

it must become so toxic no advertiser will touch it.

it must become so toxic as to end the careers of all performers involved.

“The Shore,” as it is commonly referred to, follows the lives of alcoholic, spiritually-adrift twentysomethings

I'm trying to think of something on network TV that isn't spiritually adrift.

There isn't much.

I thought it looked very unfunny in the promos.

I heard one of the guys interviewed and he pretty much said they intend it as indoctrination for us benighted straights who don't get the gay "family" thing.

Thank God for old movies and old show reruns. I can't watch today's tv shows. It's not even the moral content (or lack thereof). These new shows aren't even remotely entertaining.

I caught the lions share of an episode; what a dud. The show is about as much fun as a lecture on paint drying. The grandmother is a flat, soulless, comedy-free copy of the family matriarch from Arrested Development. The other characters are so stereotypical they scarcely need individual names. The tone ranges from preachy to sanctimonious, punctuated with what I'll charitably call 'the occasional laugh.'

Maybe not laugh, exactly. It's more like that vague pre-laugh feeling you get sometimes when you realize someone's telling a joke and you inadvertently shift the muscles in your face and chest in laugh-preparation. Then you realize it was a false alarm and go back to sitting there bored.

Other than that, it was pretty lame.

Breathtaking to see the decline of our culture in the past 30-40 years or so.
Can anyone imagine the reaction to this show in say 1967?

I decided some time ago that the expression, “the new normal,” signifies nothing more than the old SINFUL.

“It is because of the hasty and superficial conversation with God that the sense of sin is so weak and that no motives have power to help you to hate and flee from sin as you should.” ....GK Chesterton

Playing the liberals’ view of an intolerant conservative is what had Ellen “Barkin at the moon” sending all those “tweeds” (twitter screeds) about how much she hates conservatives before the show first aired to make sure no one thought she was really conservative.

They mix won’t matter when people tell the sponsors of the networks that they will boycott their products if they continue to sponsor this filth. The power of the $$ is supreme here.

“It will be canceled within 1 month.”

You’re probably right, Darth Vader, but don’t be surprised if they prop this show up a long time because of a desire to normalize and propagandize the lifestyle.

No where near as funny as Modern Family, which like it or not... most of us have a gay couple in family.

NBC tried to ahem stuff this down viewer’s throats during the Olympics. It seemed every commercial break they ran an ad for this creepy show. I can only hope it sinks to bottom of the Sea of Crud that constitutes network primetime tv.

No TV in my house. My kids are happy with the videos we allow them. I myself am a confirmed TV snob. I have not seen anything (other than the first few episodes of Scrubs) in the last 35 years. Have continued to get quite an amount of reading done. News via web. What else does one need?

OK, truth be told, one or two episodes of Seinfeld, the occasional football game, golf tournament, Triple Crown races,the odd World Series, and about five episodes of The Voice last year.

I choose to fight not against the breakdown of the family nor sexual norms but the language. It should be the new normalcy or the new normality. “Normal” is an adjective.

most of us have a gay couple in family.

I hear/read this all the time; but, considering that the percentage of the population that is "gay" is under 3%, I don't think this can be true. I know, I don't have a "gay couple" in my family.

“I heard one of the guys interviewed and he pretty much said they intend it as indoctrination for us benighted straights who don’t get the gay “family” thing.”

“Friends” beat them to it over a decade ago (none of the children, including those added as the show “jumped the shark”, lived with both of their biological parents).

These shows have about as much impact as the “Cosby Show” (none); networks have to go to increasingly desperate lengths to stop people from turning to a PC instead of the TV for entertainment...

We should never let the words “deviant”, “sodomite”, “pedophile” etc. disappear; I use them in discussions about “gay marriage”, and you really see people reflect on it.

You’re right. The Big Bang, Modern Family, it’s all trash.

No wonder so many of our young people are shacking up, delaying marriage, and abandoning church. While growing up, the kids watched garbage while their parents were off pursuing their adult dreams.

I think the best way to confront this is by parody. Create a video for the Internet entitled “The New Abnormal”, showing two (very made up to conceal their identities) actors who portray a flamboyant and a leather homosexual who supposedly live on Castro Street in San Francisco.

They adopt babies out of spite to the “breeders”, then utterly neglect and abuse them (dolls, thankfully) until they “die”. And then they adopt another one to meet the same fate. They know nothing about child rearing and care less, even now and then killing one of the babies because they cried when one of the homosexuals was in a bad mood or hungover.

The third character is a bureaucrat at the state child protective services, also homosexual, who describes in great detail to the distraught women giving up their babies for adoption, how their child will go to a loving heterosexual couple. Lying, of course, before tossing another baby to the homosexual men to kill.

In any event, the homosexuals would probably react more violently than the Muslims have done to the most recent Mohammed video.
