George Lopez Show: Review

Watching the George Lopez Show on 3/18/2009 at 11:00pm Pacific Standard Time, gives a good reason for a Review. The cast is Hispanic and on the 7 Star Rating system, the show is  5 Stars.

The George Lopez Show gives examples of:

  • Parenting Skills
  • Discusses difficult issues like bed wetting and racism
  • Social issues
  • And the difference from generation to generation in hopes and dreams for children

The show has some content that would be considered adult conversation and it is recommended that parents watch the show with the children to discuss and explain some of the issues.

The show could do a better job at having a more multicultural cast. There are more racial issues than just the majority race.


The Discovery Channel is Mullticultural and Scientific: TMSC Consulting SVCS, LLC Developmental Consulting Division Features "TV Network Reviews: Discovery Channel" by Tres Mali Scott Features “TV Network Reviews: Discovery Channel” by Tres Mali Scott



The Discovery Channel has shows about science, evolution, population, pollution, mutations, nature, anthropology, survival, religion, ancients, and ancient religions, ghosts, spirits, supernatural phenomena, psychic phenomena, hauntings, people, culture, traditions, and customs.

The Discovery Channel has multicultural guest and experts, the individuals on the screen reflect the culture of the United States of American Society today. The Channel is a good activity for parent and children discussions. This allows improvement in memory, TV monitoring, and relationships.

Many of the subjects of the science shows are thought in school and remind us of the foundations we learned. Many of the shows about ghosts and spirits include the religious understanding or discussion.

Many of the shows about culture include customs and traditions of others.

The commercial programing includes insurance, channel program, over the counter medications, cell phone, cable, and  phone service. The daytime programing is women oriented, we would like to think that things are different, but there many women that still stay home with their children. The evening programing is more science and cultural, oriented More towards families.

The Discovery Channel is an excellent educational tool, families can watch this programing together, single individuals with interest in programing subjects can enjoy this channel. Married individuals can enjoy discussing the subjects, it is not as entertaining as other channels because of the educational subject matter. Children can learn from this channel, with supervision.

The “7 Star” System: The Discovery Channel Rates:

  1. Education: 7 Stars
  2. Family: 5 Stars (Some Violence)
  3. Singles: 7 Stars
  4. Married: 7 Stars
  5. Entertainment: 5 Stars (More Educational)
  6. Children: 4 Stars (Recommended Supervision, some violence, some subjects need explanation Example: Religion and Science)

The Discovery Channel is a channel of multicultural and scientific discovery, it is educational and a good opportunity for parents to interact with children.

TV Networks: The Sci-Fi Channel, What is it?

The Sci Fi channel has shows about fantasy science and scary ghost and spirit stories. From space to under the ocean. The shows range from new to the 1940s and 1950s. The shows discuss ancient historical people, myths, and legends. Some of the shows look military. And concepts that are new or are far from the ability to imagine. The concepts are considered for individuals from ages 18 and up because of the science that is considered higher developmental cognitive level.

The Sci-Fi channel shows do not include some minorities actors. The Sci-Fi channel could do a better job of including other cultures in the casts. The writers may need to remember that it is 2008. The United States of America has many cultures now. We no longer are a melting pot, we are now a “Mosaic”, bringing our culture with us.

The commercial programing includes: super store shopping, car insurance, male beauty products, over the counter medications, and fast food. The daytime programing is oriented toward men and the evening programing is a little “scary”.

Because of the fight scenes, violence, scary looking characters the some of the shows are not good for unsupervised children. There are a few shows that are appropriate for all ages, it is recommended that parents monitor this station, and at the end of the show have another activity or program to turn to.

I use a “7 Star” system to rate the channels value for “6 categories”, 1. Education, 2. Family, 3. Singles, 4. Married, 5. Entertainment, 6. Children

The Sci-Fi Channel Rates:

  1. Education: 3 Stars
  2. Family: 4 Stars (Violence, concepts that need explanation)
  3. Singles: 7 Stars
  4. Married: 7 Stars
  5. Entertainment: 6 Stars
  6. Children: 2 Stars (Violence, concepts that need explanation)
