Take the time to watch it duz. It's a show worth seeing for a wide variety of reasons not the least of which is how well it's put together, how well it was cast and how real it feels.I agree that this subject does need to be discussed.
You're right, it is. But before I comment on it I want some time to let it digest and then collect my thoughts on the article so I can address it in the manner it deserves. Off the top of my head however, I can say that I have seen exactly the behavior that teacher so vehemently denies taking place in classrooms all over the place. There are teachers and councilors all over the place living day to day on established lesson plans with their eyes wide shut. There is no profession on Earth in which everyone cares and everyone gets it right and to imply otherwise is to say that teachers are beyond fault and beyond blame and I can say that because I've been one and I know.This is a really interesting blurb I found online
Because how/why???? The parents of the kids weren't even there for it? They didn't have feelings too? Or were they not involved "enough".... like the cop who thought he knew his son was "a good kid" or Clay's Mom who made room for "family breakfast" because family dinner just wasn't getting them together enough? Or Kate Walsh's heartrending performance of a Mother who loved her daughter to pieces and simply couldn't wrap her head around how this could have happened without her knowing it.... Oh, of course, it had to be school bullying because her daughter would never have kept anything like that to herself otherwise.....The author tells of her two teenage kids (about the same age as mine) who disobeyed her and watched it. She then watched it through, and gave the stock answers about how it glorified suicide and how it only gave one side of the story.
Because it cannot be done! The other point they made a great big deal over was how painful and hard it was for her to do....I really don't get how one can glorify suicide anyway.
Thank you so much Doc! This thread evolved out of a little "moment" of chatter between TSIM and I and the fact that you would even notice it's here and then do your customary "thing" with it feels like: a personal gift, an electronic bouquet of flowers, a box of exotic chocolates, a first edition Agatha Christie, a competition winning bottle of champagne, the perfect bowl of lobster bisque on a chilly day and a New York steak to go with it. You good Sir, are simply The Bomb!No release date is yet set for the new season.
