A TV show promoting a polyamorous throuple: Canada’s “You Me Her”

I’ve never seen this show before because 1) I have no desire to watch it and 2) it airs in Canada. I’m sure American audiences can find it somewhere. I’ll pass.

The background on this “rom-com” (romantic comedy) show:

“You Me Her is a Canadian television show that revolves around a suburban married couple who is entering a three-way romantic relationship, otherwise known as a polyamorous relationship. The series is set in Portland, Oregon and was created by John Scott Shepherd. The series is also promoted as TV’s “first polyromantic comedy”. On June 9, 2016, Audience Network renewed the series for a second and third season. The second season premiered on February 14, 2017.”

The show’s premise:

“The series revolves around married thirty-somethings Jack and Emma Trakarsky, from Portland, Oregon, whose sex life has been slowly dying. In an effort to reinvigorate their sex life and possibly conceive a child together, they decide to bring Izzy, a 25-year-old college student and part-time escort, into their marriage, initially intending it to be a purely business-like arrangement. When both start to develop romantic feelings for Izzy, and vice versa, they find themselves having to navigate their way through a minefield of prying neighbours, social norms and prejudices, all while struggling to confront their own feelings and adjust to the unfamiliar dynamic of a polyamorous relationship.”

Another attempt by media to discredit social norms and slam the “prejudiced” people who uphold them.

  4. It’ll never sell-it’s not “diverse” enough. Make one of the women a trans-gender Native American Vegan,throw in a fight among the 3 participants’ Parents,who ALL think the “others” are corrupting THEIR child,and put ’em on a Game Show,they may be able to make something of it….

  5. This gives another tint to the book “Heather Has Two Mommies.” I read the (free) rag and that loser sex column guy, I notice that in a lot of these sicko three way relationships there is a whooooole lot of strife and arguing. Seems as if ‘reality’ is more like one of them starts to get jealous if the other one gets more attention. Canada is already f-ed up, it’s communist. I mean, socialist.
    Just another way to destroy the young’ins and make them think that it’s ok to be a pervert and destroy normal marriage as an institution. I don’t see it as getting very popular myself.
    Next it’ll be child marriages to perverted scum like those from NAMBLA. After that it’ll be a TV show called, “I MARRIED MY CAT”….

  6. Change the title to “THEE, ME, & THOU,” & see how it goes over. 😉

    So it took FORTY YEARS to go from the “friends/roommates only” “THREE’s COMPANY” USA sitcom (1977) to the above Canadian SEXUAL/”ROMANTIC” threesome (2017)!

    (Forty in the Bible is the number for “judgment.” Maybe there’s a hint in there.)

    It looks like we can “thank” the British sitcoms for the 1977 “Three’s Company” as it was based on the UK’s “Man About The House”:

    threescompany [dot] com/about/
    […]
    …Three’s Company is the comedy that pushed the envelope by matching two attractive young women and one handsome, but clumsy, willing and able young male chef living under one roof. Jack [John Ritter], Janet [Joyce DeWitt], Chrissy [Suzanne Somers] … all resided in apartment 201. And their presence made American audiences gladly want to knock on their door each week.

    …American producer Donald L. Taffner [deceased 2011 at 80 years old] … adapting and “Americanizing ” British television comedies for the U.S. … Thames Television hit Britcom, Man About The House, Taffner partnered with … Ted Bergmann … In the fall of 1975, all three networks balked at the risqué premise of two single women living with one single man. Three’s Company was a novel and shocking first-timer for an American sitcom.

    …newly appointed ABC Programming Chief Fred Silverman (a fan of the concept from his days at CBS) surprised everyone and contacted Taffner and Bergmann.
    […]
    Three’s Company first appeared on television Tuesday, March 15th [1977] … The show was a hit with audiences though the critics were not always as kind. Even so, audiences all over the world continue to request the “company” of the very special ensemble cast that we know to be Three’s Company. [It ran for 7-8 seasons.]
    […]

    Where will it all end? Gay nude sex scenes? A ménage à trois sex scene? Pedophile sex scenes? Bestiality sex scenes? SMH.

  8. I was just thinking the other day they have turned television watching and going to the movies into an act of insanity. I quit watching 99.99 percent of television when they came out with a show called “Sex in the City”. I was just reading judiciary report website and it was showing photos of woman on television programs. The way they were dressed was utterly disgusting!

  9. The curious ratio of two females to one male sounds like a young male’s fantasy, perhaps designed to increase that audience share? (Of course, if both the husband and the wife end up wanting a so-called threesome, that might bring in another sliver of audience share.) However, I would like to point out, it could well be an older or a wiser heterosexual male’s nightmare of female bickering and maneuvering, as the writers would know if they had only studied situations with multiple wives (think of the tragic film RAISE HIGH THE RED LANTERN, Mormon history, some Middle Eastern or African tribal customs, and a lot of biblical tales, including what happened to Hagar, tossed out on her ear). On the other hand, if the ratio were multiple males in an open relationship with one female, what would be the implications? (Would the lone lady not be branded a “slut” or, a few decades ago, a “nymphomaniac”? And when she inevitably ages and, in conventional societal terms, her “charms fade,” how does she expect to keep the men?) Monogamy has some very practical advantages besides ensuring traceable paternity. Then there are the powerful, enduring, and higher-level questions of the nature of love and divine commandments, which go beyond and/or transcend contemporary culture and its shifting norms of human psychology/behavior and which I will not go into here.

  10. Hard to find a better way to completely destroy a marriage. I could never look at my husband in the same way again.
    This is conditioning. The same thing we have been witnessing for the last eight years especially. Anything to do with sex, speech, race, acceptness, as long as you think like liberals.
    We won’t be wasting one minute watching this piece of trash.

  11. Slightly related:

    5/10/17: “How The Trump Movement Is Killing Hollywood & The Media”:
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/10/how-the-trump-movement-is-killing-hollywood-the-media/

    The author used to work for US Weekly which, she says, used to be apolitical until 2016 when it went rapid anti-Trump/liberal. She says it has suffered a 30% decline because of that & was sold off by its owners to another media group.

    She also wrote that: “Well over a month ago, a Hollywood insider told me there’s a big shift going on in the entertainment and media industry. The source said that the industry is looking to produce more patriotic and conservative projects to appeal to Trump supporters and more conservative news outlets will pop up. At the same time, the industry is going to distance themselves from divisive celebrities who have publicly trashed Trump in a vulgar manner such as Meryl Streep, Shia LaBeouf and Amy Schumer. As my source predicted, the backlash has begun.”

    Does Hollyweird really care about losing conservative dollars? She continues: “At the end of the day, the movie executives and producers in Hollywood who supported Hillary Clinton still need to make money,” the insider explained. “The dollar is still important so they are not going to take a risk alienating a large audience simply because a star like Meryl Streep wants to mouth off and disrespect President Trump. The celebrities who chose to attack Trump over the past year – it’s starting to bite them in the ass now and they are receiving less movie offers.”

    Yeah, well, I guess we’ll see. But I concur with one commentor there who wrote:

    “I hope conservatives don’t forget how much these Hollywood types despise them and continue to quit consuming their product even if it’s not so blatantly biased.”

    Amen!

    • Then, on the flip side, we have this from yesterday:

      5/11/17: “ABC Cancels Tim Allen’s Highly Rated TV Show 2 Months After He Called Out Hysterical Anti-Trump Left – Coincidence? Christian Conservative sitcom canned”:
      https://www.infowars.com/abc-cancels-tim-allens-highly-rated-tv-show-2-months-after-he-called-out-hysterical-anti-trump-left/
      […]
      “In LA, there is a secret, underground group of showbiz conservatives,” Victoria Jackson, a former Saturday Night Live cast member, told the Huffington Post. “It started with two people in 2000. I was at the fifth or tenth meeting, and now there are over 2,000 people. The only ones out of the closet are Jon Voight and Pat Boone. There are famous people in there, but they don’t want to lose their career — and conservatives are blacklisted.”

      The inherent bias against anyone who dares to deviate from the Democrat orthodoxy virtually ended the career of James Woods, who in 2013 said he never expected to work again as a result of his vocal criticism of Barack Obama.
      […]

      ABC says they cancelled Tim Allen’s show due to “licensing fees.”

      Re: Pat Boone, I guess he’s so old that he was an “out of the closet” Christian from the beginning, way back when TV & Hollyweird were only very slightly “boiling the frog” & still aired Christian-type programming (Tennessee Ernie Ford show w/Christian hymns, etc.)

      Re: Jon Voight, I heard in recent weeks that Twitter blacklisted him yet his Twitter page is still there; it says he only joined Twitter last summer; he tweeted a lot in October 2016 pro-Trump, but then nothing until one retweet on 3/4/17 & nothing since.

      As for James Woods, that’s sad. I liked him as an actor.

  13. Polyamorous, that’s a new one on me. How can they possibly describe this arrangement as romance? Dumbfounding. Could this be the first step towards conditioning people to accept a legalized, non-structured variant of polygamy?
