I must confess that I continue to despair that this programme continues to use pretty women, wherever possible. After all, women come in all shapes and forms but they just prostitute these pretty women to attract more viewers. Of course, increased viewers = more money
Some may ask as to why I continue to watch it if it pisses me off so much. The reason? If everyone just becomes complacent and when they find things offensive, they turn off and switch over and watch yet more crap.
But, I do not see it that way, just like my battle (and it is a battle) with Berwin Leighton Paisner, Paicolex Trust Management AG and my father. Some would say that I have a good income and yes I do but that is not the point; it is the fact that I am battling for what I am due, as my brother Martin, an equal beneficiary, has got more than triple.
People today just turn the other cheek when there is injustice, as they just care about themselves. It is sadly the way of the world these days and it a world I do not want to be in.
But I am not like most. I will fight for injustice to me or others even if it causes me issues, even serious issues.
Yes, Murdoch Mysteries really cheeses me off, sometimes it is a bit funny and is in the whole, well produced, as far as detail goes, but they is a gross GENDER imbalance in the programme. What they do now, I have no idea as I am bound by the scheduling in the UK, but I expect it is the same.
A simple example. In the episode “The local option”, pro teetotalers, who were mostly women, smashed up a bar but they were all released. In many other episodes, you see male ONLY drunks and those who cause minor trouble being arrested being put in the cells.
Another example is that there are no male journalists/private investigators of note at the forefront of ANY story.
And please tell me. What the fuck is Helena Joy, who plays Dr Ogden, doing in the programme; she just sees to swan around and insert herself in most episodes
WE ALL KNOW THE REASON WHY; DON’T WE?
If it was a balanced programme, then I would enjoy it but I ask the question
Why do modern dramas have to be so jokey and a bit stupid? A good drama would attract far more viewers. Shaftsbury just are on a production line with cheap anti male jokes and easy writing of the scripts.
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO MONEY. IT IS CHEAPER TO MAKE A CRAP PROGRAMME THAN MAKING A GOOD ONE.
AND, OF COURSE, IN TODAY’S ENVIRONMENT, IN MURDOCH MYSTERIES, IT IS EASY TO JUST PORTRAY MEN AS WIFE ABUSERS AND DRUNKS.
I CANNOT THINK OF AN EPISODE OF MEN COMING UP ON TOP
I will continue to put myself through watching Murdoch Mysteries and will provide my negative critique on here, for my many thousands of visitors to read. Just like I will continue to battle against the bastards who continue to shaft me, EVEN MY FATHER
