This movie has "modern misogyny" written all over it

The acting is fairly good and it has a good pace of action. In spite of that there are lots of modern cliches and classical faux-feminism . While it does not imply that "it's ok to kill prostitutes" it normalizes and sanitizes the existence of Prostitution itself. Is it really necessary to show a woman being killed DURING sex ? The politics of Gun violence is addressed, but not the horrific plight of modern day sex trafficking. Instead, for the most part, "it's the happy and willing hooker until she is killed". The usual mix of misogynistically portrayed sex and violence is all over this series. In my book I would not recommend this movie for children nor teenager. TV movies riddled with sex and violence and the objectification of women as entertainment maybe all over TV and movies, but that does not make it a healthy choice for our children.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex

Not what H.G. Wells would've written.

Jack the Ripper wasn't in The Time Machine. I also read, I think, 1 or 2 of his other books. Jack the Ripper wasn't in the ones I read. If H.G. Wells saw this show he'd be turning around in his grave.
