Happy Birthday digitalwave! Michael's show under fire. [Jul. 5th, 2015|06:25 pm]
Happy Birthday digitalwave! Hope it's been a good one.

Michael's new show "Impastor" has come under fire from some "slow on the uptake" types who think he's playing a real pastor. (Every article, every preview of the show has made the premise abundantly clear, not to mention the title.) So Michael has been getting complaint-tweets and I'm resisting the urge to tweet the complainers back. "Remember how the "Nuns on the Run" were NOT ACTUAL NUNS? How Robert De Niro wasn't really a priest in "We're no Angels?" How Whoopi was a showgirl in a nun's habit in "Sister Act"? There's a grand cinematic tradition of undercover priests & prelates for comedy.

Anyhow, it's giving the show a higher profile which is good.

You know how it is in America . . . things don't run right unless we have these crazy right-wing groups telling us what to watch, what's good and what's bad! I don't think anyone's really listening, and all the reviews have been good, even for the hard-to-please EW, so I think all is well.

They'll find something else to decry soon, I'm sure.

It's not all Americans, just a tiny grumpy sliver! Anyway, hopefully lots of new fans discover Our Boy tomorrow night.
