Unfortunate Subject Matter
This is a really unfortunate show and especially the subject matter. Rob Ford had a lot of problems obviously but he was still a person and had a family and when a man with demons dies while still somewhat young and troubled and leaves his family behind it is in pretty bad taste to drag him back into the limelight and make fun of him and his troubles again like this. I could forgive it if it was more tastefully handled or at the very least if it was funny, but this is just an exercise in tasteless lowest common denominator jokes that seems like it was slapped together just to make fun of this guy. And no I'm not saying this because I love Rob Ford or something, I think he and his brother are both crooked and dishonest and did not belong in politics. I think it was a huge mistake for people to elect either of them. I think he brought disgrace to himself and this city but I think he paid for it enough in the public light and his family definitely paid enough too. I'm also not a prude or whatever, I'll laugh at very dark comedy and dirty comedy as long as it is funny, when it's not funny (like Filth City) it's just insulting to me because they're doing this for no reason.
