Moar Girth?
20 July 2015 | by greenwhichSee all my reviews

I found myself rewinding several points for the jokes and dialogue used. A good thing, as with a lesser show I would have been fast forwarding.

Obviously the song and dance is for the 99% who shout hoarse, but the 1% who would actually enjoy it, although in that situation probably only wanted a parade. HAHA

The baby, happy families, is becoming quite annoying. It is everywhere on this show, and I don't know what the responsible message is? We need to move past some of that psychology. The humane choice is to be responsible. Without whatever other influences affect logical thought, possibly like this show. I find that this situation, however interwoven to be quite irresponsible in the message offered. I agree it shows both sides, but any justification seems to be swayed by some opinions. The XYZ of life's equation. Science has often proved much of religion wrong. Today the amount of CFC's generated should be a concern, as well as every other thought and future. I found it more promoting, to be shown for the demographics here. Maybe just me, I could specify, but I don't want to influence opinion, because it isn't my choice.

As usual an explanation. Few have understood the numbers demographic, or quite what supposedly captures the other half. Realtionship, babbies and families, like bunnies, maybe with a song, or some tears. Sarcasm and humour! However in this show we have been bombarded, up to the point, that there hasn't been much other interaction when showing that coupling. A forced baby, a religious baby, x3 abortions no baby, and a bigger family from a commune. I agree there has been some of the flip side of the coin, although lacking by comparisons seen. Do I need to see this in a cop, gangster and noir TV show? Anything happening within parts of America currently as some clinics are closing, obviously because America is such a godly nation and that Anti structure is often so ingrained into common thought. Any numbers generated becoming part of the demographics. If dressing plastic upon any larger length, or any fatter girth it becomes a case of working for her, that pleasure for him might be gone, limited positions, slower, more goo, etc, but can possibly lead to conception. The religious baby shown was in middle of a break up, tightened into a family when the pill didn't work. There I have just gone and influenced, damn it. I wanted responsibility shown, which meant not seeing it, to any of those extents seen here today.

Good episode, seemingly a few motives built into this plot. Entertainment!
