User Reviews

 
Talk TV with a single objective
19 February 2015 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

In the early 1990s, Ellen was a very funny stand-up comic who made insightful humorous comments on everyday life - kind of like a young Jerry Seinfeld - when he was still funny.

Somewhere along the way Ellen felt it necessary to share with the world that she is homosexual - a lesbian. Since then, her focus has been to promote the gay lifestyle - overtly and covertly - in every way possible.

Starting with her stupid daily dance, it escapes me how women can watch her tripe day after day - year after year as they did for 25 years with Orca. Then again as H.L. Mencken once said - no one ever went broke underestimating the intellect of the American public. Just another show that proves his old adage correct.
