*I rarely add commentary but I wanted to mention that I'm sharing these links here not to indict these particular shows or people that watch them (I enjoy two of these shows and will probably watch and enjoy the third). 99% of the TV shows that we watch are problematic in one form or another (ie AHS, Duggars, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, etc etc) and you can be aware of these issues, and like or dislike the shows, so keep that in mind!
