‘Vera’ (Detective Show) — Unjustifiable Bias Towards Interracial Couples Is Starting To Ruin The Show!

We (and by that I mean all of us in the household) LOVE the show. ‘Vera’ has become one of our FAVORITE British shows. Just do a quick search (here) for my rave blog posts.

The show has always made a point of showing a varied cast — with non-whites in every episode. That is GOOD. And I appreciate that MY Britain is very multiracial. Love the trouble they have gone to be inclusive.

I also have no issues whatsoever with INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS & MARRIAGES.

Let’s face it. I, literally, have SKIN in the game. Every relationship and marriage I have had has been interracial. So, I have NO problem with them. But, at the same time I do not want anyone demeaning them — and, of course, NOT taking the mickey out of them! And it has come to that with ‘Vera’ Season 10. Four episodes so far, and EVERY ONE has had an interracial couple. That is TOO MUCH. That is too in your face. I am no longer amused.

Yes, I looked up the stats. Interracial marriages, though on the rise (as it should be), still accounts for less than 10%. Way, way, way lower than in the U.S.

The show’s obsession is misplaced.

Well, this was bothering I. It genuinely was. It was getting in the way. I had to write this. SMILE.

‘Vera’ has become one of our FAVORITE British shows — with ‘Downton‘ & ‘Shetland‘ the only others in that very top echelon. Teischan loves the show. She is re-watching all of the earlier seasons and I think she has watched some of the episodes more than twice — already.

She was so happy that there is a Season 10. I am glad too.

We watched the first half of episode 1 today. We didn’t notice any obvious changes from the last two seasons. The same main characters and they don’t seem to have aged or changed. They are sticking, faithfully, to the tried, tested and proven formula. Nothing wrong with that. We love it like that. Can’t comment on the story as yet since we haven’t seen all of it. So far, so good. The usual twists and surprises.

Well, just wanted to make sure you knew that ‘Vera’ was BACK.
