Please excuse my drunk moaning last night about these shows, like I say I don't bash people for watching them as my parents do, but don't watch them myself and don't watch telly anymore in general. It's all my parents and family watch along with soaps and dramas.
Cultural Marxism has been adopted as a catchphrase by the far right but to me that's not what it means and is what is actually going on our TVs. It's a combination of Marx and Freud/Jung and general cultural theory as started out by Frankfurt School philosophers like Adorno.
Won't bang on about it as I know film noir is not that popular topic on here but they are imbedded with Freudian theories, loads written on it, my mate did his masters on it which is what got me off on that tangent. Just google Film Noir and Freud, loads of theory, and nothing to say you can't analyse modern TV through the same lens. Although it's just as likely to be just entertainment.
