    I can't think of a single well-written sex scene. :shake:

    I can, but mostly well-written in the sense of being funny.

    In "Mr. Monk Bumps his Head," kids are being stung at night at the town's lovers lane.
    :mad: Bees use the sun to navigate & therefore don't fly at night. Tow truck diver is afraid to move a car because it may have some residual angry bees and is told, not to worry.The beekeeper has tb bees tucked in and they're sleeping. :mad: Bees don't sleep during the day.

    This.
    Also, pushing an ideological agenda in an annoying, preachy, black-and-white manner.

    I like this actress. But why did they have to cast a girl that white to play a character named Alvarado?

    *shrug* I was good friends with a girl in college whose parents were from Mexico, she had a Spanish name, and was blond with blue eyes.

    I know a Hispanic fellow named O'Malley.

    Her casting isn't that far out of reach, though a more visibly Latina actress would raise less eyebrows.

    The nation of Chile has a lot of streets and stuff named after their 19th century liberation hero and statesman Bernardo O'Higgins.

    I knew a guy in college who was from Puerto Rico and was about as white as I am. It's not that it doesn't happen. But Hollywood has been accused, rightfully, of whitewashing often enough you'd think they might start to get a little less tone deaf.
