Social Rot in Progress: MTV’s new show Happyland celebrates Incest: “Incest is hot, and we’re going to have fun!”
Leave it to the morally bereft scoundrels at MTV to go for the “disgusting factor” to attract an audience!
MTV put on a panel discussion for the press with the cast and creators of a forthcoming series called “Happyland.” The female star of the show, actress Bianca Santos, announced the new MTV motto: “Incest is hot, and we’re going to have fun!” reports Liberty University.
Lisa de Moraes at the website Deadline Hollywood reported on the pilot episode of this “soapy teen comedy” – remember that this is a show for teenagers. This show, “exploring the underbelly of a popular theme park,” includes a clip of Santos making out with the amusement park’s “new hottie” only to discover … he’s her brother.
The assembled TV critics and reporters asked the obvious questions. “So, why the twist? Why the brother and sister making out thing? How does that relate to the other things (in the show)?” …
The show’s creator, Ben Epstein, boosted the notion that this was like a fairy tale of the handsome prince sweeping a maiden off her feet, and he just adds the “MTV edge to it, and makes it all weird and crazy.” That’s when Santos blurted, “Incest is hot, and we’re going to have fun!”
But, mercifully for the rest of us, for once, the critics weren’t happy with this plot.
Critics are happy with the plot? This is how the culture is debased incrementally by making the unacceptable and disgusting somehow exciting. This is why progressives will always celebrate debauchery; make it cool, funny, and artistic while dragging down the culture.
