Determined to see social message preaching in these shows? How could anyone possibly miss it? They're delivered with all the subtlety of a hammer to the head. I wouldn't say that I'm offended as much as I am annoyed. I'm perceiving messages that are obviously there, not looking for/finding messages that aren't there.Maybe it depends if you're determined to see social message preaching everywhere you look, and to be offended as a result.
