[ # ] Murphy Brown takes on #MeToo and it is must watch episode
October 11th, 2018 under Candice Bergen, CBS


Last week, Brett Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual assault from his teenage years, was confirmed to be a Supreme Court Justice. People kept saying, “Why come forward 36 years later?” Or they would say, “She has no proof.” I guess they were never sexually assaulted or harassed, so they do not understand what it was like in the old days. Tonight at 9:30p on CBS, Murphy Brown shows us what was like years ago as compared to now and why women did not say anything back then.

The episode starts off with the staff of Murphy in the Morning having to go through sexual harassment training. Something Miles (Grant Shaud) needs because he is hitting on a female employee. Murphy (Candice Bergen) does not think she needs to go because it is her show. That is when she reminded what happened to a few other people…

After the class, Frank (Joe Regalbuto) realizes he might need some help and Pat (Nik Dodani) has an app he created that might help him. If he says something inappropriate, then it buzzes him. Side note, someone needs to make this app real!

Anyways, Murphy, Miles and Corky (Faith Ford) go to the bar, and the latter talks about the times she was sexually harassed when she was first starting out. That strikes a nerve with Murphy and causes her to remember something that happened to her when she was younger.

Later that day, Avery (Jake McDorman) realizes that something is off with his mom (with a line that will make you LOL), so he asks her what her what is going on. She tells him and he explains to her what happened to her is not her fault. But it is still weighing on her.

She goes to the bar and talks to Phyllis (Tyne Daly). The bartender, who does not like give her advice, gives her some. She needs to confront her attacker. That is when she decides to see him and confront him about their past.

What happens next is something everyone needs to see. It might show all of these people, who cannot understand the #MeToo movement, why it is so important. Why he said/she said is not just perceived as he said. For the first time in history, she said being heard just as loud if not louder.

Tonight, I highly suggest to everyone, to watch Murphy Brown because it is a real eye-opener. It shows us how the women of today feel empowered that what happened in their past is not their fault. They should not be ashamed. That they are victims and not their assaulters. Maybe if this aired last week, Kavanaugh would not be on SCOTUS. Which he should not be but that is a whole other episode.
