S1 E9: “The PC Crap”

714 Delaware St.

In this installment of 714 Delaware St., Katherine and Maura discuss The Conners’ disappointing third episode “There Won’t Be Blood,” from its confused message about “PC culture” and problematic handling of Gina and Mary to bright spots like Becky’s “Sharknado Conner” costume and Matthew Broderick as Jackie’s know-it-all BF. We’re slightly frustrated but simply brimming with ideas for future storylines – Conners writers take note!

In honor of the election, we also take a brief look at classic season 4 episode “Aliens,” which offers some of the original series’ most incisive political commentary. And on a more serious note, we ruminate on the tragic shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in our beloved city of Pittsburgh.
