Rantotheweek Help!!!!

Did anyone see or TiVo the finale of King of Queens? I hear it's rant worthy. Forget that on tv adoption takes a minute, I hear that it involves "pregnancy after referral" and a statement like "that always happens" as well as concerns about "what to do with the China baby" and happy news that they decided to keep them both. Is this rumor true?! If so, who's going to write the rant? I missed it . . . So much for my media-watch-dog-wannabe status.

From what I heard, the writers managed to throw in even a few more misconceptions. The characters were referred a four-day old baby from China and flew off to pick her up the same day. But I didn't see it myself.

I'm a little to pissed to rant. I've had issues with the show in the past. This isn't the first time they've made nasty adoption related shows. In the past doug was making fun of a kid and finally yelled at him "Ha, well your parents don't love you because YOUR ADOPTED!"

And all this time I've been railing at Law and Order SVU . . .

I remember someone writing about it but I can't recall who it was. I know her opinion was that it was so completely over the top as to almost poke fun of the process in a way she thought brought important issues to light. I can see that. Personally I was mortified though. The comment about "ordering Chinese, but never a baby" ?!?!?!?!

I too will be interested to hear what others have to say. I suppose all attention is positive attention if people are listening.
