Memo To Medved
Seems like maybe the Old West wasn't quite as you imagine it.
"Ewww, America isn't ready to watch icky gay sex" is not a review. I know, you don't actually write reviews, and the wordsmithing game has gotten a lot tougher for you now that you can't order them to stop tape so you can steal Jeffrey Lyon's best lines anymore (it sure would be interesting to finally learn who was really bankrolling that sad little PBS circus of yours). But you've made up for that by finding an audience that can't tell the difference. Fine. But a review is supposed to confront a work on its merits, not on the projected amount of popcorn it'll move. Isn't it?
PS, you might at least congratulate me for holding on to that graphic instead of throwing it away earlier for a cheap laugh.
