Really? The Astronaut Wives Club? Can We Start Treating This Material Like Old English?

Thursday, June 11, 2015

No offense, but if there's one episodic TV event that I don't need to see - it's this.

Again - no offense, but we've had a slew of "going to the moon back in the day flicks" where the roles for anyone not referred to as White, aren't always the most moving, engaging, or even there for that matter.

I really do think we should start treating this kind of like Old English, or fine - Middle English - where sure - we have to learn about that at some point - but we don't need to keep making or watching them as part of our modern staple of art and entertainment.

Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote,
The droghte of March hath perced to the roote,
And bathed every veyne in swich licóur
Of which vertú engendred is the flour;

Yeah...that's what I see.
