Hmmm …Mexican drug trade as Aaron Spelling camp. What will they think of next?
And, in these troubled times, they’ve given America just what it needs — more sociopath role models.
Predictably, Mexican-American groups are already decrying the stereotyping being done by ‘Kingpin.’ And rightfully so. There are precious few Latino characters (and actors) in prime time. Does the network have to make the first show that features more than a token sidekick so derogatory.
But aside from all that, I’m also decrying how cheesy the show is. ‘Kingpin’ is supposed to be NBC’s answer to ‘The Sopranos.’ But to me, it looks more like ‘Dynasty’ with machine guns.
If I want the cheese factor, I’d rather have it full tilt and unabashedly. I’ll stick with ‘American Idol.’
