Something That Bothered Me

Last night I watched the latest Rizzoli and Isles.  I know, I know.  But the ep was about a plus-size woman, not huge, just a bit large, and throughout the program, there were derogatory references to her weight, starting with Isles commenting on her excess adipose tissue, and ending up with Korsak wondering if the husband had done it, giving the reason that she 'had let herself go'.  Seriously?  I was appalled, not expecting to see such blatant size-related prejudice in a show featuring.....wait, I started to say, 'in a show featuring strong women', and then I realized that they really aren't.  If you watch the show, you begin to notice that they are presented in such a way that makes them seem strong on the surface, but reveals their female weaknesses underneath.  Another show off my list.  I am so glad I no longer pay for cable, because there is so very, very little worth my time to watch.
