21st Century Entertainment

Adhered to the wall of the 155th Street subway terminal is a poster advertisement for Showtime, a network home to some of television’s most acclaimed programming, which displays the lead players in several of the channel’s series as they appear in their respective roles. Scrawled by some vandal on the foreheads of each actor or actress was a brief summation of his or her character’s primary occupation: Michael C. Hall as Dexter of the eponymous show was marked with “Serial Killer”,  Billie Piper as Belle of Secret Diary of a Call Girl with “Whore”, Jonathan Rhys Meyers as The Tudors‘ Henry VII with “‘Loved’ his sister”, Mary-Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin of Weeds with “Drug Dealer”, and David Duchovny as the sex-addicted protagonist of Californication with “Who Cares?”. I found the defacer’s implication interesting.

  1. Serial killer whore loved his sister’s drug dealer?

    Welcome to modern entertainment, the boob tube is indeed the great glass teat at which many Americans suckle their spare time away.

    I do like David Duchovny!
