Huh

I read this post by Ampersand a few days ago, and didn’t really pay too much attention to it, at first.
But it got stuck somewhere in the limbo that is my mind, and the more I thought about it, the more I saw that it’s actually true.

I watch a lot of shows on TV, and I’m aware of even more of them.
And the more I thought about it, the more it struck me:

Let’s have a look at what’s currently on air/being promoted on the airwaves around here: If I discount the shows that are very obviously aimed at an exclusively female audience (*cough* „Desperate Housewives“ *cough*), I can think of a single show where the woman is the quirky one to her down-to-earth, commonsense male partner. („Bones“ – give it a try if you can, by the way, it’s great) There was a somewhat promising German „House“-rip-off with a female neurosurgeon-lead character, but that one got canned after about 30-seconds. So we remain with a single one. That’s it. Just one.

The other way round, without even thinking very hard, there’s „CSI“ (nobody out-quirks Gil Grissom), „Psych“, „House“, „Numb3rs“, „Pushing Daisies“, „Life“ (coming soon to German TV, and looking verrrrry promising), „The Mentalist“ (premiered today on German and Austrian TV – not sure about the greatness-factor, yet), „Law & Order: Criminal Intent“ (Goren, mostly…but Logan, too), … The list goes on and on.

That’s fucking depressing, that is.

    But does it actually surprise you?

    The fact? No.
    The actual ratio? Yeah.
