The GCBs of Hillside Park Presbyterian are praying for Amanda Vaughn--or so they claim. Will their evil gossip destroy her reputation, or will she show them exactly how to turn the other cheekSo the series is really about women's cat-fighting, but the writers felt compelled to make it about Christianity. They lose.
Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. Shes divorced her cheating husband and fled, along with her two teenagers, back to her hometown, Hillside Park, a Dallas suburb so upper-class that the question isnt where to bank, but whose family owns the bank. Amanda is thrilled to be back in Texasafter twelve years in Southern California, shes ready to leave behind her shallow, Godless life and return to the welcoming Christian world where she grow up. Or at least thats the plan . . .
But when she arrives, shes met with some Texas-sized trouble. Her old friends, neighbors, and fellow church members treat Amanda like a long-lost friend . . . until her back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda finds herself trapped in a world of salacious rumors, secret affairs, and Bible-study sessions gone terribly wrong. And whats even more puzzling is that a secret admirer is sending Amanda lavish gifts. Why, she wonders, would anyone send a Mercedes when a simple dinner invitation would do?
Packed with schemes, drama, and a Southern setting more fun than a barbecue at Southfork, Good Christian Bitches has humor, sass, and an unforgettable cast of characters.
Allegedly the show’s star, Kristin Chenowith, proclaims that she is a Christian in real life.
Maybe they should try the opposite line of thought and produce a show that encourages people turn to faith instead of turning away.
Before reading The Harbinger, I had no idea how close to the edge we truly are and why.
We, especially the Hollywood types, don't have many second chances left.
“poorly written, cliched, overacted, drama, no one will miss it.”
That describes almost everything on TV these days.
Letting gay’s write all the shows on TV sure has turned out to be the death of hollyweird.
Yeah....well....a LOT of folks ‘claim’ to be Christians. And a lot of those same folks are fine with abortion, including partial or late term abortions, and are fine with legalizing same sex marriage and other things considered abominations in the Bible. They are only fooling themselves.
I would ask Chenowith how she’d feel if all of the Christian references were switched to Muslim instead. I’m sure her “”Christianity”” would forbid such a spectacle....lol.
Who knew, a hundred years ago, that we in America would have our “Sodom and Gomorrah” (San Francisco and Los Angeles). God only knew.
No, it's actually about Dallas. Ever been there? ; )
As Billy Graham said, “If God doesn’t punish America, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.”
What a shame. There aren’t that many shows on TV with T&A mindless romp and sexual situations.
Mind the tagline, its a true story. I worked with a lad that was always mocking Christians, and Christianity. He is a devout liberal atheist. As he was mocking Christians one day I asked him why dont you ever mock Islam and Muslims? without even thinking about it he blurted out Muslims are violent.
Sometimes the truth comes out if you catch them off guard and they have their PC filter down.
They should replace it with Gay, Communist B..ches
> Everyone in my family loves The Andy Griffith show even my teenage daughters.
We recently re-discovered “Gunsmoke” on the Westerns Channel and I forgot how darn good that show was. Better than 95% of the crap produced today.
Never heard that, but it sounds right to me.
I could tell it was a lefty creation by the “stars” that appeared on it.
However, Monk was quirky but mostly a clean show.
Anyhow, a clean show can be very successful.
Unfortunately, the leftist who mostly control the media and hollywierd would rather flop than produce something that doesn’t push their agenda.
One down...how many others to go?
ALL reality shows
Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23
I mean, just look at what many of the titles say...
IMO, all the above show TERRIBLE morals and values and this is a BIG reason our country is so dumbed down and “worldly”...i.e. screwed up. Granted, I haven’t watched any FULL episodes of the above....but seeing the commercials and what little clips I have, tell me all I need to know about what they are “promoting”.
However, there are also other shows (mostly the dramas) that still promote promiscuity and immoral things, but at least the acting and writing of the script are decent enough to get past the bad message. I mean, I have to be honest and say I enjoy Scandal and Revenge...not to mention Sons of Anarchy. But at least I know right from wrong, so I’m not influenced by these shows. A lot of people just go along, thinking it’s all good and if Hollywood does it, why can’t we, etc.
Just my $.02
Desparate Housewives is gone. The last show was yesterday.
