    Oh… Great. More racism & sexism on TV until 2016.

      Sounds like someone got burned when they flew too close to the DANGER ZONE!

    • I know, right? Personally, I hope they keep up the quality writing through 2018.

    • ewwww! says:

      Seriously? Lol

      You don’t see the satire and irony of it all?

    • anthony says:

      Ok… Then i guess just pout.

    • Tarc says:

      You do understand that it’s the OPPOSITE of racist and sexist to poke fun at racists and sexists. Right? That’s why it’s funny…

        The failure of the American education system: People don’t understand satire.

        • bob says:

          To quote Archer “No one really knows what Satire is”

          • Shawn says:

            There are no black male characters in this show. The writers present an oversexualized view of blacks and a black male counterpart to Lana would disrupt the white male power structure as he would be fair game for the all of the female characters. This may be going over people’s heads. So while there seems to be a freedom of woman expression–within Pam, Cheryl, and others–this freedom exists only within their social confines as they all get in bed with Sterling or some other boob (boob with power). The white male characters fully express their sexual freedoms–within their white social group extending out to Lana and others. It’s also ironic that Lana is presented as repressed as does not enjoy such freedom but she is dressed in the least clothes and has the most nude scenes. She is obviously the token black sex kitten with the necessary restricted options in terms of men. All of this is incongruent with her personality but who cares. It is not her world.

    One of the only consistantly funny shows on tv. Glad it will be on for atleast two more years. Hopefully longer.

  3. Matthew Weber says:

    I like this show, but this Vice season kinda sucks. There has been some funny stuff, but I could really do without most of the story lines, especially the Cheryl/Charlene country singer story line.

  5. So they’re no longer in the… DANGER ZONE! Sweet.

  6. Shirley says:

    This is amazing news.

  7. Joey says:

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

  8. jackal says:

    This news makes me feel like I’ll be living in FORT AWESOME ’til 2016.

    @Shawn – “There are no black male characters in this show.” – Sigh… This statement alone classifies your entire post as utter nonsense, therefore there’s no need for me to deconstruct the rest of it. If the show is too much for your sensibilities to handle I suggest you watch something more within your means. A man should always know his limitations.

    You are an idiot. Shut up and laugh like everyone else at the hilarity of characters and story line. This isn’t a show that is trying to change societal views, or reinforce changes to gender roles and civil rights. It is a comedic series to produce money and a legacy. Quit over thinking things and just laugh.
