RE: [DML] Re: A DeLorean was on TV this week



Yeah, but...  umm...  Nothing they said in the show was incorrect or defamatory.

I watched the show when it aired knowing nothing about it (wife wanted to see if it was any good), and when they said the line about JZD being arrested for trying to sell FBI agents cocaine, my wife looked at me preemptively and said something like, "Calm down," but I actually shrugged and said something like, "Actually, they're correct; that's exactly what happened."

I thought it was actually a better-than-average portrayal of the car than usual, when it comes to TV and movies.

I think the source of Kathryn's displeasure was the fact that the show *mentioned* JZD's drug bust at all, not that they got it wrong.  I think her concerns, while valid for her universe, are beyond the realm of expectation for a mainstream national sitcom.  She expects sitcom writers to avoid talking about a national news story (30 years old though it may be) just because it might upset her kids?  I think she's lucky her kids made it to 8 and 11 without hearing about it, there's not a whole lot of room to complain that the streak was broken by a (admittedly crappy) TV show she just happened to be watching.

A more cynical argument might be:  Why was she watching the show to begin with?  The DMC-12 was on-screen for a good 5-10 minutes before the comment about JZD's drug bust, so why didn't she see that coming?  Especially when the character tries to call the Delorean concierge line and gets a "number disconnected" message-- she had a good 5 seconds before the cocaine line was delivered...  Surely she could see what was coming, no?

*shrug*

It is up to us DeLorean owner now to speak up and protest the defamation of JZD and the DeLorean motor car.

If we just "roll over" and do nothing,  if we just condone the disinformation and this type of behavior.  Here are things we can do:

Post a negative statement on your Facebook pages about this show and it's writers.
False information and lies are wrong and no excuse for humor.

Go to the shows website and post negative feedback.

Write the TV station that broadcast propaganda.

Write the FCC about these lies and distortions.

Write an editor comment for your local paper.

PUT a bumper sticker on your car protesting this show.

Bob
