Had high hopes coming into this one. I like Stephen Dorff and am always up for a good cowboy lawman movie. Boy, was I wrong. I had to turn it off after about 30 seconds. Dorff is is front of a police panel and is being accused of warning illegal aliens that an ICE raid is coming(he admits he did), I turned it off right away. I went to IMDB thinking maybe I overreacted and NOPE I didn't, he is what he said right after I turned it off(added some reviews too).
" I will not do my job and will not uphold the constitution as a police officer because illegal immigration is not illegal."
The first line of the show was " I will not do my job and will not uphold the constitution as a police officer because illegal immigration is not illegal." Ok then, this is not a police show and if you can't get your first fact straight, I won't watch it. Good luck making a second season with this attitude ;)
Hollywood PC from the first sentence. I'd rather watch paint dry. Entertain me. Don't lecture me.
I was very excited when I saw the advertisement for this new TV show. I absolutely loved Longmire and I love all of the Goodnight series of movies on TV. I thought that it might be something like that, I was ready for a good cop show with a western type of theme. After the first 15 minutes I was totally turned off by the political BS with the whole immigration talk. I continued to watch it hoping that it was just going to be that little bit in the beginning, but the longer I watched it the more I just couldn't take it anymore. I really don't understand why they would want to alienate half of their audience from the get go. I guess you have to be a liberal to enjoy this series. I couldn't even get through the first episode before I pressed the delete button.
I love Stephen Dorff and was really looking forward to this project. However as all things go in Hollywood, the writers had to spin a political viewpoint within the first minute. I'm just not going to sit through another liberal dominated opinion piece. Time to go read a good book.
Well, the bad ass lesbian, tranny or whatever driving him around was a tipoff on the show’s direction as well.
An IMDB review.....
Just when you thought FOX was going to show you hard edged, gritty, lawmen not seen since Longmire left TV...the politically correct deputy walks in. The previews for this show had myself, a couple of law enforcement friends, my son, and a bunch of others excited to finally see crime fighting. What did we get? Social Justice Lawman. Every Leftist cliche except one was evident last night. The lesbian ex-military deputy with the short hair. The bad white guy that supported ICE. The whole "We're all immigrants here!" line. The only cliche not supported, the white cop with a wrecked marriage and a empty liquor bottle cluttered house. The previews had such a great promise! I have not watched TV in months, and was only interested in this show fro previews on Youtube. I actually posted a note on my TV so that I would not miss this show, I was that excited. Thank You Fox for reminding me why my TV has not been turned on for anything but video games and old movies since the spring. The NFL was ruined. Now Law Enforcement. What can the Liberals poison next?
Some ways you really could have went out on a real limb there FOX!
Had the little short haired lesbian deputy really surprise us and be straight, relocating for a man she met in the Pentagon. Now that would have been a shocker.
Or had the new sheriff actually support the Constitution as he swore, not pick and choose his laws.
Maybe the late partners son actually put up a real fight in the jail. Not go down at the first punch. 10 years experience there by the way. You go down that easy, you’re dead. D E A D!
When will Hollywood wake up to the fact that the public is sick of this Leftist crap? Box office sales dropped last year. TV viewership across the board is down. Most people that can afford to go to the movies or buy the products advertised are reading a book, or spending time with family. You only have yourselves to blame.
Have you guys seen the show Superstore? It's the big sitcom I guess. They have an on going story line where ICE raids Walmart like storm troopers and locks up one of the main characters, an illegal alien. They visit him and hes in an orange jumpsuit telling them conditions are dirty and the guards all scream at him in Spanish even though hes Filipino or something. The whole show is the other characters wringing their hands about how they should have obstructed ICE and not let them take away their friend like the Green Police.
