Around the turn of the century, TV achieved an unprecedented greatness with shows like The Sopranos. But in recent years, these prestige television offerings have really begun to falter, so we go on for a while with a fairly academic discussion of these issues and then BAM! It’s a hard and fast review of FX’s A Teacher, a definitely too problematic and romantic and romantaproblematic teacher/student coital cable drama starring (va va voom) Kate Mara—but get your mind out of the gutter, perv! Shape up and eat the shame sandwich and learn THE DANGER OF GROOMING if you want to live in a society.
I’ve got complaints about the show, yeah, but also complaints about everyone complaining about the show. It’ll be a good long list of who needs to shut up, which is not me—my views are correct and I should keep talking.
